How to install Magisk Delta on Android emulators (Easy installation)

Magisk Delta is a fork by HuskyDG, including old school MagiskHide, Riru and some custom features. It works same as with official Magisk. Magisk Delta is a lot easier to install compared to MagiskOnEmu. Magisk Delta works on phones too but we will not cover it. If you need help with phones, refer to this page Magisk Delta or XDA forum

Currently, only Magisk Delta support Magisk installation into system partition. Although emulator has ramdisk image, patching ramdisk is not used because ramdisk is stored in seperate partition with very SMALL disk size that is not enough to store Magisk binaries.

Note: Screenshots may be a bit outdated but they are still acceptable

Magisk Delta does not work with Android 12 emulatorsbecause system partition is read only. Please send feedback to developer if you want it unlocked

Before you start
Enable Root access in emulator settings


If you use Bluestacks: Use Bluestacks Tweaker to unlock and enable root

If you use LDPlayer: Enable System.vmdk writeable in emulator settings


In this case, I will install Magisk v25.2-Delta on Nox player running Android 9. You can use any supported emulators, Nox Player, LD Player, Memu Player, Bluestacks, etc running Android 7 or above. It may not work on MuMu

Install and open Magisk Delta. Grant root access to Magisk Delta (If asked)

Press the Install button on the Magisk card.

Use “Direct Install into system partition” option instead of “Direct Install” option. If you don’t see this option, close and re-open Magisk Delta app.

If you got the error “Unable to find sepolicy rules dir /data/adb/modules”, just ignore it

DO NOT disable Root access in emulator settings. Backup built-in su (/system/bin/su and /system/xbin/su) and delete them (in case you want to uninstall Magisk and restore to built-in su) using file manager with root permission (In some file manager, you may need to enable write permission in Settings to be able to delete the file), then reboot. Because emulators like LDPlayer will remove all su after disable ROOT from settings, causing magisk to prompt “A su binary not from Magisk has been detected. Please remove any competing root solution and/or reinstall Magisk”.

If you are TOO LAZY, you can try disable Root access in emulator settings then reboot, hoping Magisk will still work. Disabling root did not affected Magisk on Memu and Nox Player so far


The last step is to verify that everything is working properly. Open Magisk Delta again. We want to see a version number beside the “Installed” parameter. This means you have successfully installed Magisk. Great job!

I want to show you the custom features provided by Magisk Delta. The most important feature is Magisk Hide to prevent detection

Important: If you update your emulator, you need to reinstall Magisk-Delta again. No user data are wiped
