We are listing all the new versions of Magisk and Magisk Manager for download. You can download Magisk zip 18.1 from the link below. Magisk is developed by senior XDA developer, Tomjohn and is terming the Magisk as the next Root methodology ahead of SuperSu.
Well, if we compare it with the SuperSu than the Magisk Manager is quite advanced and flexible. it offers you to hide the root access for particular apps. By this way, you can enjoy the apps related to the banking sector and others on your rooted device. It provides dynamic features which allow you to hide the root for any particular app.
Another popular feature is the systemless access on your device. Users need not worry about the official OTA update as it uses the same system partition as it is before the root. To bring more clarity, earlier, SuperSu altered the System partition on the device to grant root access privileges. But Magisk manager roots your device without doing any change in the system partition.
Further, It gives you the sole Magisk Manager which allows you to upgrade, install and manage different module on your device as in-app. Well, before installing rooting your device with Magisk. Please make sure to backup your device without root using our guide. Also, you might need Fastboot drivers for PC or root with MacOS.

Hi Simran Singh,
to download/flash in ODIN I have five different categories: bootloader, PDA, Phone, CSC, UMS. Which one do I mark and download/flash with my patched_boot.img.tar?
Thanks for your fast response.
You have to select AP in the ODIN to flash “patched_boot.img.tar” .. you can also use fastboot way to flash it easily
