Android, made better. Welcome!
Hello! Team at Androidacy here. We’ve been doing android for almost three years now, so we thought a site update was called for. Let us know what you think in the comments!
We develop many things, including Magisk modules, maintaining ROMs, and more to come soon™️.
To keep up to date, be sure to visit the blog. We’ll post updates, reviews, opinions, and more. Contact us about anything you feel should be posted!
Projects We Support
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is fighting for our internet freedom and rights.
Want to improve your privacy? Not sure how? There’s a collection of tools for you! They’re all neatly categorized and reviewed, too.
The Tor Project is out to fight internet surveillance and censorship. By using multiple layers of encryption, being open source, among other obfuscation techniques they help anyone from bypassing a proxy to getting around government censorship. Note: contrary to popular belief, Tor is in no way illegal, and bad actors are only a small portion of it’s users.
Things we develop for
Magisk is a system-less root method for an unlocked android device. By system-less, we of course mean it does not touch the /system, /vendor, or /product partitions (those are required to have a functioning device!). Root is higher level access to a device than a normal user, meaning you can modify things the OEM has blocked you from modifying. Magisk modules are install-able zips that can be flashed to provide some really cool tweaks, a couple of which we develop! We currently develop three magisk modules for theming, privacy and more. Ready to get started?
Android ROMs are custom firmware flashed to an Android device. Now, I’m sure some of you out there are like “those are dangerous”, and this is simply not true. Quite often custom ROMs merge security patches sooner than OEMs, and include patches OEMs do not. They perform better most of the time, and can usually be tweaked to your hearts’ desire. What are you waiting for? Flash something today!
Custom recoveries on most Android devices are customized versions of your recovery (stock recovery only allows factory reset and sometimes updating – boring!). They can usually flash ROMs, manage files, flash other mods, and more! They are a very handy thing to have around.

Webview Switcher for android – Magisk module
A Magisk module to change your WebView to something more privacy respecting on Android. Bromite is faster, more secure, and has enhanced privacy features
A WebView handles rendering web content in non web browser apps (for example, email apps, google app, play store app).
This module is the successor to and replacement of many separate modules, and was created to make webview and default browser switching easy!
Fontifier for android – Magisk Module
The new way to theme every font and emoji! Simply download and install, then follow the instructions to select one of over 200 fonts!
Compatible with all devices and most recent ROMs. Some apps may not respect system emoji set.
We came up with this after Fontchanger (copyright John Fawkes) was killed off. Many users have reported that this module makes font switching easy as 1-2-3!
MagiskFixes for android – Magisk Module
A collection of fixes for Magisk on various devices.
Helps with GSI, Pixel, and motorola incompatibility with Magisk. Things like root prompt not popping up are addressed.
Please note that only the issues reported to us can potentially be fixed! Head to the Support & Contact section to find out how to report them.

A source code hosting platform made around usability for everyone. Highly functional and easy to use, wherever you go with a mobile friendly interface. Personally we prefer it over Github because it’s free to self host, and has less clutter
May in the future be used to host source code for Androidacy. Sign-ups welcome.
A Tor Relay is part of the decentralized Tor Network, an effort to combat censorship and promote internet freedom. It’s used for things like journalists in mainland China, and people fighting oppressive regimes.
No longer in operation

Also multiple TB of catpics.
