Root users rejoice – SuperSU now supports Android L

June 30, 2014

SuperSU’s popularity stands powerful for a reason. The Chainfire team is amazingly dedicated, making their Superuser manager one of the best options around. An important factor is always timing, and we can be sure developer Chainfire is also not lacking in that department.

SuperSU has been updated to version 2.01, bringing support for the Android L Preview. Most won’t be able to take advantage of it, as Android L has yet to reach its completion. The preview version can now get root support from SuerSU, though. It’s a small update, as it revolves around the premature Android version. We won’t find any other improvements or fixes.

We know it may not be enough to simply install the unstable Android L preview! Some of you are brave enough to also root and install SuperSU. If you are that brave, you can go ahead and install it yourself. Simply download the ZIP file from the official website and flash it through a custom recovery.

Do remember tinkering with your device and software may be dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. You may harm your device and/or void your warranty, so be sure to keep away from this if you don’t feel confident enough.

    YEAH!!!
    Do we still have to flash that boot.img?

    • Jayfeather787

      Okay. It works.

        No.

        Even 2.0.0 out a few days ago worked if you simply copied a file from one dir to another; etc and bin.

        But there is LOTS of root app breakage; including my own root apps. Nothing that can’t be fixed; so far at least.

          Thanks to Selinux :/

        • Jayfeather787

          Yeah there was no change between 2.0.0 and 2.0.1

      No, if your device is already unlocked, all you need is to flash the SuperSU file via custom recovery. I did it on Friday and it worked perfectly.

    It was working from the first day… Just made some changes to updater-binary.

    I still can’t get edits to the build.prop to apply after reboot. I want a custom DPI.

    SuperSU works perfect on android L (there was a modified SuperSU for L on XDA since Friday), but it can be used for almost nothing since most of the root apps doesn’t work on L (especially Xposed). Technically, you don’t need to be so brave to do that, if your device is already OEM unlocked, you just need to flash the SuperSU file via custom recovery.
