LiveBoot 1.7 adds Android Pie and Magisk support

Chainfire may be known for SuperSU more than anything, but the man has released a number of different tools and utility applications that range from incredibly useful to quite fun. One such application is called LiveBoot and it is a boot animation that shows your logcat and dmesg outputs on the screen right as they happen. Chainfire has been taking a bit of a break lately after selling SuperSU, but earlier today he announced a new update to his LiveBoot application that adds support for Android Pie and Magisk.

Those are the two highlight features in the changelog that Chainfire has published but it also adds support for Adaptive Icons, migrates libcfsurface from C hijacks to Java reflection as much as possible, and more.

LiveBoot v1.7 Changelog:

  • Android 9 Pie support
  • Improved 64-bit support
  • Fix files dir not existing automagically
  • Migrated libcfsurface from C hijacks to Java reflection as much as possible (4.3 –> 5.0 minimum support)
  • Magisk support
  • Adaptive icon
  • Updated compile and target API levels
