Magia Record is region-locked, meaning players must have access to the Japanese app stores in order to download it. Players who live in Japan or have access to the JP store can download the game directly:


Android Workaround

Magia Record requires a minimum of Android 4.4. Each of these methods is primarily for mobile devices, though may also work on emulators.


ADB - recommended

Requires a computer and a USB cable. Magisk Hide might work for rooted devices.

This method involves "forcing" the app to install directly onto the phone, essentially tricking the phone into thinking the app was downloaded from the JP store.


Automatic

The auto-installer is a program created by veritas for "spoofing" Magia Record onto your phone. It works on Windows 10, Mac OS, and Linux.

  1. Make sure USB debugging is "on" on your device. Guide.
  2. Connect your phone to your computer via USB.
  3. Download the appropriate release from https://github.com/wxfnyu/magiarecord_automatic_updater.
  4. Unpack the magiarecord folder and run magiarecord_automatic_updater, which will install the game to your phone.
  5. The automatic updater can also be used if Magia Record is already installed; in this case, the game will be updated to the latest version.

Manual

  1. Make sure USB debugging is "on" on your device.
  2. (Optional) Uninstall the app if it is already installed on your device.
  3. Download the latest MagiReco from ApkPure or ApkMonk , onto the computer that is using ADB.
  4. Install Android Debug Bridge (Windows Mac Linux) on your computer.
  5. Connect your phone to your computer via USB.
  6. Open Terminal/Command Prompt.
  7. Enter the following commands one by one and the game should be ready to launch.
    • If you see "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command", please type cd <your adb directory>. Also, please confirm any prompt on your device while installing.
    • If your computer does not support Japanese characters, change the file name from Japanese to English.
      adb devices
      adb push <path of your APK> /sdcard/app.apk
      adb shell pm install -r -i "com.android.vending" -r /sdcard/app.apk


VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Only works if your device is in the compatible device list.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) can be used to spoof the location of your phone. Note that with recent Google Play updates, this method may require permanently changing your Play Store region to Japan for a minimum of 1 year.

No VPN provider is endorsed or advertised by the wiki, however there are multiple free and paid options available.


  1. Start your VPN.
  2. Choose Japan region.
  3. Clear Google Play Store data.
  4. Open Google Play Store. If you see app names in Japanese, you are using Japanese Play Store.
  5. Install the latest MagiReco and wait until the installation is completed.
  6. If the app region has not changed, you will have to change your App store region instead. This change is permanent for at least 1 year, and switching regions will result in the loss of any outstanding Play Store credit. See official instructions for how to do this.

IMPORTANT: After the app has been downloaded, check your VPN region before launching the game! Individual game accounts are also region-locked, meaning that they can only be transferred to another device in the same region (i.e. Japan to Japan). Make note of the region before creating an account.


App Cloner
