If you follow AndroidFlagship, there’s a good chance you’ve got a rooted device that you enjoy every day and wouldn’t change that for nothing in the world. However, one of the negative aspects of rooting is that you won’t receive OTA updates and you also know that you are basically compromise security if you’re setting SELinux policy to permissive.

However, things are about to change with a new rooting technique known as Systemless root which allows SELinux to run securely under enforcing mode, not to mention that it lets installation of OTA updates without any issues. This is happening as long as systemless root doesn’t modify the system files on the device.

With the Magisk systemless interface for Android devices, installing systemless root on Android devices has gotten easier than ever. And to top that, installing systemless root via Magisk also allows you to use Android Pay with root or even play Pokemon Go despite of your initial frustration regarding the fact that the latest version (0.37) tried to forbid rooted users from playing the game on their handsets.

To get started, you need to install Magisk systemless interface first on your Android device and only then you will be able to also grab the phh’s SuperUser systemless root for Magisk (you can find the appropriate links in the procedure below):
