Magisk by XDA Recognized Developer topjohnwu is the most popular root solution for Android devices, but because of the modifications it has to do to allow for systemless-root, it usually needs to be updated to be compatible with the latest Android release. The first Developer Preview for Android 11 was released back in February followed by the second Developer Preview last month. Today, topjohnwu released a Canary build of Magisk that can root the Android 11 Developer Preview.

This initial Canary build is designed to work for the latest Android 11 Developer Preview releases for Pixel smartphones, though initial reports from Pixel 2 owners suggest it isn’t working for them. Bugs are to be expected given this is a Canary release, though. According to topjohnwu, SafetyNet Attestation currently passes, but it’s uncertain how long that’ll last once Google fully rolls out hardware attestation for SafetyNet.

To get started with root on Android 11, download the latest Canary Manager release or switch to the Canary release channel in Manager’s settings and then update Magisk. If you experience any issues, file a bug report on the project’s GitHub repository.
