ChainFire Releases New SuperSU Root Tool – OTA Rootkeeper and Temporary Unroot Included


If you hang out in any of the root-specific forums or love all things Samsung, then you have probably heard of ChainFire. The dude has made some pretty monumental apps over the last couple of years, including a handful of root tools, a mobile Odin client, a top notch benchmarking tool, and more. His latest release brings us back to the foundation of it all though, and he is calling it Super SU. It’s like the Superuser app that you all have installed on your rooted phones now, but it includes all sorts of bonus features so that you can track everything. If the deep root logging is too intense, know that it also helps you keep root through an OTA and can temporarily unroot your device should need to trick something like say, Google Wallet.

Play Store Links:  Free | Pro ($2.49)

    Where is the unroot tool? I just installed the app and I can’t find it anywhere..

    ChainsDD does Superuser
    Chainfire does SuperSU

    Copy each other much?

       It’s like the Trace Buster Buster for the Trace Buster

    Does it work for the TBolt? I’ve been looking for a good one-click solution…

  • Azndan4

    I hate how the old super user app had allow on the right and now its on the left. Its pretty annoying.

      Thats how everything in ICS is now.

  • Pardon my “noob” question… will this root my og droid?

    • Keith Sumner

      No, to root your OG droid you have to RSD lite to a stock 2.1 and then flash a newer build.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      your just NOW considering rooting an OG Droid???? Where have you been?

      • I had done it ages ago then had to replace the phone.  I didn’t think it’d take so long for me to upgrade… but it is taking that long.  Razr Maxx will be mine one day.


        back to topic.  This won’t do the actual root?  is there an easy one click thing around at the moment?

        • Tiny

          There are several Motorola root kits that will root your DROID. I used a few months back to root my gf’s old phone

          • Do you remember any off hand?  I did mine years ago and completely forgot how to do it.

        • Royal2000H

          According to the XDA thread, ”
          !!! SuperSU requires a rooted device !!! “

    Already posted on XDA earlier,  he doubts it’ll trick wallet as the app does multiple checks.

  • Skyskioc

    Can someone elaborate on this a little more ?

  • AranelAlasse

    how long will the “trick” last?  or will Google catch on and start checking further into your phone for more evidence of root?

    • I keeping reading that Wallet will work whether you are rooted or not. they just warn you about the security risk involved. it’s your phone, you can do what you want with it. I haven’t tried it since mine came back online yesterday though

      • I added funds to my wallet before they said it wasn’t supported.  I have the little bar that says it’s unsupported, but I paid for something at Home Depot last night with it. I can’t add more funds though…

  • Nice.  Temp unroot to watch the 25 cent rentals.  🙂

    • FortitudineVincimus

      I don’t think so. Temp unroot does not remove the evidence in there that Google could check for. Temp unroot is great more for returning root after an OTA update that kills root then actually shutting root off and on to try to trick Google. Try it, but I doubt it will get past Google.
