Koushik Dutta, known as the mind behind ROM Manager and other apps such as Carbon Backup and DeskSMS, is at it yet again. Late last night, Koush posted details and a video to his Google+, showing off his newest creation, ClockworkMod Superuser.

The app which will forever be free and open source, is Koush’s definition of how a superuser app should be – secure, open, and work properly (with a pinch of prettiness). It features multiuser support, PIN protection, customizable notifications and a whole lot more.¬†


* Multiuser support
* Open source https://github.com/koush/Superuser
* Free
* Leverages Android’s permission model
* Logging (and per app logging)
* Pretty UI
* PIN Protection
* Request Timeout
* Customize notifications
* x86 and ARM support.
* Handle concurrent su requests properly
* NDK clean

To install the new SU app, you will need a custom recovery installed and of course, root access. To grab the download link, hit up Koush’s Google+ page off the via below.

Let us know what you think of Koush’s new work!
