Best Root Apps for Android

Magisk Manager:

Magisk is used to Root Android Device Systemless-ly. It doesn’t make any modification to System partition. Magisk Manager is a Manager which work after you root your Device. It helps in managing the Root access and also allows us to Install “Modules”.

Modules are APK file that needs Root access to work. Modules work systemless-ly with Magisk Manager. These Modules simply Root apps so here are some the best of them:

Xposed Framework

By far, the best Magisk Manager Module is Xposed Framework. Xposed was never a Magisk Manager, instead, it is much older than Magisk. Xposed Ranks at No.2 in our list of Best root apps, and the reason it also rank Magisk Modules because Magisk installs it Systemless-ly and Process is pretty simple. 

Installing Xposed Framework without Magisk is a lengthy process which includes flashing the Zip file via TWRP and it also not Systemless Installation.

ART Optimization

ART is called Android Runtime that is a virtual machine and it compiles apps. This Module optimizes the ART by setting Build properties. 

Xposed Framework

Xposed framework

Xposed Framework is very similar to Magisk Manager. It is a framework which allows Modules to make the modification to Android. 

The idea behind Xposed Framework is that for a small visual tweak, a user can flash a small program/app/Module instead of a Mod which make system Wide Changes. The Modules can be easily uninstalled and the Modification reverts back to the original. 

There are loads of Modules for Xposed Framework, we already published a list of Best Xposed Modules for Android, so check them out.



Ads Blocker blocks Advertisements and that’s why we (techory.com) hate it. Ads are the only source of income for us then why did we ranked Adaway at 3rd in the best root apps list?
