The new Magisk v26.0 supports loading modules into the system by injecting overlayfs files. OverlayFS is a Linux filesystem that allows a filesystem to be overlaid on top of another filesystem, without modifying the underlying filesystem. In this case, it allows users to inject files into the Android system image without modifying the original image, which can be useful for modifying system files without breaking the device’s security features or causing instability.

This new version of Magisk uses the legacy version of the LZ4 compression algorithm for compressing the boot image. The LZ4 algorithm is a popular compression algorithm used for compressing data, and the legacy version of the algorithm is an older version that is still supported in many systems. Some Android devices may not support the newer version of the LZ4 algorithm, so using the legacy version ensures that the compressed boot image can be properly extracted on these devices.

Magisk Manager now supports patching the init_boot.img file for Samsung ODIN firmware, which allows users to modify the boot image of their Samsung device using Magisk. This will be useful for the developments of Samsung devices.
