November 14, 2020 | Android Tools | Lex

XDA Senior Recognized Developer topjohnwu has released Magisk (Beta) v21.1 and Magisk Manager v8.0.3, bringing support for the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Magisk provides users with an easy solution to root your Android device. TopJohnwu previously launched updates to its Magisk apps that brought support for Android 11.

Topjohnwu announced the new updates on Twitter today, saying the focus is primarily on stability improvements and bug fixes. But if you own one (or both!) of Google’s most recent flagships, Magisk (Beta) v21.1 will now work with those devices. Here’s the full changelog for Magisk (Beta) v21.1:
