About SuperSU Root

SuperSU is one of the most useful tools to control the root settings on an Android device. Simply put, it is an app that allows for advanced management of superuser access on a rooted Android device. SuperSU may be popular, but like every other rooting tool, it does have its own advantages and disadvantages. They include the following:

Pros of using SuperSU Root

  • SuperSu is quite easy to use, granting user-access to rooted settings in a single click.
  • The SuperSU root zip file is free to download.
  • Flashing SuperSU can be done with a single click.

Cons of using SuperSU Root

  • You have to install TWRP to use SuperSU.
  • You have to have knowledge of how to navigate root settings to use SuperSU.

How to Use SuperSU Root to Root Android

To use SuperSU, you first need to install the TWRP recovery environment on your device. Go to the TWRP site to download the right one for your device.

Once the TWRP recovery environment is installed on your device, you are ready to Flash SuperSU and gain root access. See the following simple steps to learn the details:

Step 1: On your phone or computer browser, go to the SuperSU Root site and download the SuperSU zip file. If you download it on your computer, you need to transfer it to your device.

Step 2: Get the device in the TWRP recovery environment. To do that, you will need to hold down specific buttons on your device. These buttons you have to hold down vary from one device to another. For your specific device, find the proper button combination by searching for "TWRP (Device Model name)" in Google. On the TWRP recovery screen, tap "Install" to begin the process.

Step 4: The duration of installing the SuperSU zip file in TWRP recovery mode depends on actual situations, so please be patient. Tap "Wipe cache/Dalvik" when SuperSU is installed, and then select the "Reboot System" to continue your operation.

That completes the process, and you should now see the SuperSU app on your device. You can test the success of the rooting procedure by installing an app that requires root access. A good example is "Greenify" or "Titanium Backup" When attempting to use one of these apps, a popup should appear requesting Superuser access. Tap "Grant" and when you see a "Success" message, the device has been successfully rooted.
