So I had an argument with someone over telegram if root exists or not in android.

My point of view is that like any linux kernels the concept of root exists but it's not accessible to other processes. That's where magisk comes in play, hacks the kernel permitting other apps to use the root functionality.

Now the other person mentions that the concept of root doesn't exist in android and mods like magisk implements it.

Now, which one is which? Does root exists in android phones or mods like magisk implement it?
