How to Install SuperSU and Root Android Devices

Android is now officially the most widely used operating system in the world and most of the tech giants use it in their smartphones. One of the thing that makes Android so much better than other operating systems is its open nature. It paves a way for developers to communicate with the OS to the deep level and come up with Custom ROMs, Custom Recoveries, and Mods. These ROMs and Mods enable you to increase the performance of your device and improve its features. However, despite Android’s open nature, you cannot just install these things on your Android devices. That’s because the manufacturers set up various restrictions. To overcome these restrictions, you need to root your devices. One of the easiest ways to get a complete root access is through SuperSU. In this guide, we will show you how to install SuperSU and root Android devices.

SuperSu or superuser is a manager application or you can say an access managing tool. Basically, once you root your device, it needs something to manage the apps as to which should be given permission. That’s what SuperSU does, enables you to keep track of the applications to which you have granted the root permissions. You can also use SuperSU to temporarily unroot your Android devices. It is due to the efforts of Chainfire that we have a flashable zip file containing the SuperSU app. Since you need a custom recovery to install SuperSU and root Android devices, we will help you install a custom recovery first.
