I am currently using Redmi Note 7 Pro handset which currently running on Android Pie custom ROM (maybe I would have changed if you are using this after a month of publishing date) with Magisk modules installed. I have tried so many modules includes ARCore patcher, OnePlus Slate font, YouTube Vanced, iOS 12.1 emojis and more. In this post, I will share some best Magisk modules to use in the second half of 2019.

Alongside, gaining the root access, it allows the user to download and install Magisk modules to make tweaks on their Android devices. Although, they sometimes make things worse at the same time they are very useful.

Best Magisk Modules
So, that said, now lets jump on the list of best Magisk modules to use in the second half of 2019. I have handpicked some of the best Magisk modules.
01. App Systemizer
If you have ever gone through settings on your mobile phone, you probably know about the system applications. Your smartphone will not allow you to uninstall system applications. They can only be disabled.
App Systemizer will allow you to convert other third-party applications into system apps. Thus, they can be only disabled, can’t be uninstalled. App Systemizer uses systemless method to convert third-party apps into system apps. That means it doesn’t actually change the Android’s system partition.
The App Systemizer app actually has two different versions available. One is a GUI version, while another one is the Terminal app. The Magisk module repository offers you to install the Terminal app. Once you install the Magisk module, you have given just one command through ADB portal.
Also, you can follow the video tutorial on App Systemizer if you want to.
XMLPak is the most preferred one Magisk modules. This Magisk module lets you download and use the vendor apps on your Android device. So, sometime you might have seen a message in Play Store says, “This device isn’t compatible with this version.” I truly hate this. And so I discovered this XMLPak Magisk module which allows you to download any vendor APK easily.
If you are gamer, I would recommend downloading Razer Game Booster app from Google Play Store. Its a super neat app which boosts the performance of your device while you are playing the game. XMLPak will allow you to download this app.
03. ARCore/Playground Patcher
The third best module in our list of best Magisk modules of 2019 is ARCore patcher. If you want to add support for Google ARCore on your device, then this would be the best Magisk module for you. You can get Google AR Core support on your device and later on you can install Google Playground to play with the AR Sticker characters.
If you want to, you can learn about how to enable Google Playground Feature on your device. The guide written is basically for Redmi Note 7 Pro, but you can apply steps on your device in the same way.

Quick Switch is another useful Magisk module. Many of you might be using the OEM’s launcher on your Android device like MIUI, EMUI, ColorOS, and FuntouchOS. The OEM launcher comes with their own user interface including the recent tabs. With QuickSwitch, you can replace the recent app provider with the other launcher. For example, if you want to use a recent tab like Nova Launcher, you can simply switch it using QuickSwitch. The remaining user interface will remain as it is.
05. liboemcrypto.so disabler
This module allows you to install apps which are DRM protected. Take an example of Netflix. If your device is rooted, you cannot install the Netflix app from the Google Play Store due to DRM protection. With liboemcrypto.so disabler, you can hide root from this kind of apps and install them easily on your Android device with one tap from Google Play Store.
06. OnePlus Slate Font
If you do love applying custom fonts systemwide, you will definitely love OnePlus Slate. It will change default fonts to the OnePlus Slate systemwide. So, no matter which app you are there will be OnePlus Slate font on the screen. Since the OnePlus Slate font has been removed from the Magisk modules repository, you will have to download the ZIP file from the Github and flash it manually.
07. Universal GMS Doze
Next module in our list of best Magisk modules of 2019 is Universal Doze Mode. The smartphone comes with a common feature called doze mode. FYI, doze mode puts all apps in sleep when you turn your device screen off. However, because Google knows this feature, the Google services like location, Play Store won’t stop even after you turn your device screen off. They won’t go in doze mode. Here Universal Doze Mode comes in picture. This module will put Google services in doze mode. That way you increase your device’s battery life.
08. Cloudflare DNS
We are living in a world where everyday new dazzling technology takes place. While the internet world is quite risky all the time. The Cloudflare offers privacy-focused public DNS that let’s prevent your ISPs from tracking your web history and also promises to load websites faster. While there are so many ways to set up this DNS. But, the one that makes everything simple is the Magsk module. This module will installed Cloudflare DNS on your device systemless.
09. Viper4Android FX
Majority of smartphones having custom UI atop Android comes with the inbuilt sound equalizer. However, you might don’t feel the improved sound quality after using them. The Viper4Android FX is the best application to equalize your phone sound. After installing this module in your device, you will be able to boost the bass, optimize the phone speaker, also, you can make it even loud then it is now.

10. YouTube Vanced
Unlike the regular YouTube application, YouTube Vanced will help you to get rid of the ads on YouTube. Not only that, but it will also bring the background play feature. So, with this Magisk Module, you will be able to play any video in the background even with the screen turned off of your device. It’s like you are using YouTube Premium.
11. Google Product Sans
Obviously, the default font makes you feel bored on your device. With the Android Pie update, Google has now pushed new Product Sans fonts which indeed feels funky. But, what!? Of course, you can download and apply on your device as well by installing Magisk module named ‘Google Product Sans’. Just search for it and install it. Once it installed, simply reboot your device.
Also, in bonus, there is another similar module named ‘OnePlus Slate Font Systemless‘ which also provides your the same font and you can install through downloads tab.
12. iOS 12.X Emojis
Android will never add support for the iPhone like emojis. And I know people often ask us on how to get iPhone like emojis. Because they look more realistic and cute. So, with this Magisk module, you can get all iOS emojis on your Android device. It will completely change the visual emojis as well as the keyboard emojis. You can follow us our detailed guide on this topic here.
13. GPU Turbo Boost
PUBG lover? Well, gaming is the biggest industry right now. And how we can forget some of the best games like PUBG, Fortnite and Asphalt 9, require the high GPU to play without any lag. Let’s forget high-end smartphones. Of course, you will get everything you want in them. But if you have a mid-range device and you want to play games without lag, that would be great if you push device GPU. And to do so, we will use GPU Turbo Boost. It will increase the GPU power by up to 75% while playing the game. Also, it will reduce power consumption by 25%.
14. CrossBreeder Lite
CrossBreeder Lite is Magisk module that I can say, a bundle of different optimizations done for the Android device. It is aimed to improve battery life and reduce lags or stutters on your device. While the developer says the result varies by device. But indeed you should give a shot to this module if you want to get more juice from your device battery.
15. Camera2API Enabler
The last module in our list of best Magisk modules 2019 is Camera2API Enabler. I think Google Camera is everyone’s, first love. With the new Pixel 3 device, Google has added tons of different changes and the most exciting one is Night Sight. With the Camera2API enabled device, you can enjoy all of these features if there is Google Camera available for your phone. Yes, you can enable Camera2API using alternate manual methods by setting up values. But, this will bypass all of those steps. Simply install the module and that’s all!
Well, I have already enabled Camera2API without using this module so, I haven’t attached any screenshot.
That wraps up the list of 15 best Magisk modules to use in the second half of 2019. You can catch further posts on our website.
