How to Uninstall a Magisk Module and Magisk zip from a Rooted Device
But, before we head onto the article and learn the methods to uninstall the Magisk module or the Magisk zip for a rooted device, let us first understand what Magisk is;
What is Magisk?
Magisk is known as a “systemless” root method. It’s essentially a way to modify the system without actually modifying it. Modifications are stored safely in the boot partition instead of modifying the real system files. This is the most important feature of this tool. Since the original system files remain unchanged, modifications can go undetected by Google SafetyNet.
Google SafetyNet is the reason why a lot of people use this tool over other methods. SafetyNet detects when the system has been tampered with and blocks certain apps from working properly. Google Pay, Netflix, and Pokemon GO are a few examples. SafetyNet is an important security measure, but it can be overly aggressive. Magisk allows users to have root and other modifications while still using these popular apps. Methods like SuperSU modify the system files, which triggers SafetyNet to block apps.
