The latest Magisk v26.0 is now out for you Android nerds to download and flash it on your devices. If your phone is rooted and you make use of Magisk Modules and other features, then this is a big release as it comes with a number of changes.

The highlights of this release include a brand new Zygisk API v4, new implementation for Magic Mount and the minimum Android version required by Magisk is Android 6.0.
