Rooting your Android device gives you access to the system’s root folder and you can do all sort of fun stuff. You can install tweaks and customize your OS as you want.
There are also certain apps which require root access like ad-blockers which needs access to your system’s host file to block ad networks.
Rooting was a very simple process back then, but now with Google’s latest security patches, it’s harder to root all new Android devices.
In fact, certain apps like Google Pay won’t work on a rooted device because your security is somewhat compromised, and your device is more vulnerable to malware.
Let’s see how you can root your Android Pie device using Magisk and Magisk Manager.
Note: You need to have TWRP Recovery installed on your device which requires a computer. Make sure you follow the guide carefully.
