Superuser grant and manager Superuser rights for your phone

Take in account that this app requires that you already have root or a custom recovery image to work.

What's more, most of the app that give your phone root, also includes this app. That's it, once you have root this app automatically gets installed in your device. Just in case that you get root by other means that doesn't automatically install this app, you will need to download it from here.

When you launch first time an app that has special features for root users, Superuser will ask you if you want to allow them to have root access. Then, the makes a list of the allowed apps and the denied apps, as well as a detailed log.

No matter if Superuser is already included in the app that makes you root user or you download it from here, the point is that you will need a Superuser app anyway (developed by ChainsDD or by others). Must have.

Developer's original description available here
Grant and manage Superuser rights for your phone.

This app requires that you already have root, or a custom recovery image to work.

Note: App and binary will have different versions. The app is updated more often than the binary is.

This app cannot be uninstalled if it was installed with your ROM or root. If there is no uninstall option, it's because you placed it in /system/app, not me. It is impossible for an app to be installed in /system/app by the Play store. In fact, the entire /system partition is read only at runtime. The only way for an app to be placed in /system/app is via a rooting process (which usually installs Superuser), or by remounting the system partition as read/write and manually putting it there.

Permissions requested are for:
Internet - updating the binary
External storage - backup/restore for elite users
NFC - creating an allow tag for elite users
Boot completed - fix database on boot

Support request emails that simply say "Doesn't work" or something to that effect are automatically deleted by our stupidity filter and will not be answered.

Recently changed in this version

    I never wanted this app and yet I can't uninstall it no matter what I do. Just please tell me step by step what to do. I've rebooted my phone and everything. I still see the stupid superuser on my phone. Very dissatisfied
