Root Powers without a fuss - the traditional unix way

This app installs a custom unix/linux like su binary which grants root powers to all apps by default without any fuss and any confirmation. This app is meant for developers and powerusers who develop rooted apps or use trusted rooted apps. The 'root to all apps' behaviour may be considered 'insecure' by some, if you feel more secure with confirmations, then this app may not be for you.

*** Free and Adfree
*** Initially Root required

This app has been superseded by superuser X. Left for historical purposes or for older devices.
If you have the habit of randomly installing rooted apps from the net, then this app may also not be for you. (The theory that confirmations help laymen prevent disasters is flawed - you can still press allow to a untrusted root app and get your files deleted)

The superuser X su Legacy binary essentially cuts off the middle man, i.e. the slow grant dialogues and the dependency on the parent superuser app. This also means that you will have root powers even if the superuser app or installer gets corrupted or uninstalled.

This is the Lamborghini among superusers!

Special Attention

Once the binary is installed, you can uninstall the app. For some this may be disappointing but the plus side is you can save space and have one app less in the launcher! The traditional su is a command line application, it does not need this fancy UI to run your commands! You can keep the installer if you like.

Compatibility and Requirements

Requires a rooted device. A Complete BusyBox installation is recommended for rooted apps.

Supports only Android on ARM.


Install Superuser by ChainsDD / SuperSU by Chainfire / Superuser by ClockworkMod and allow them to install their own su binary. Once that is done, just unistall superuser X the usual way.

This app does not root your phone - it is against Google Play TOS for apps to root a phone.

This currently does not support Android 4.3 , 4.4 Kitkat and above - it may lead to unrooting.

Remember with great power comes great responsibility!

About su

The su command, also referred to as substitute user, super user, or switch user, allows a computer operator to change the current user account associated with the running virtual console. By default, and without any other command line argument, this will elevate the current user to the superuser of the local system. --Wikipedia
