SuperSU Android rooting app no longer available on Google Play Store

almost 4 years ago by IanDorfman

SuperSU, for years one of the most popular rooting applications for Android, has been delisted from the Google Play Store today.

The developer of SuperSU, Chainfire, ceased developing it a year ago on October 3rd, 2017. Since then, its current owner, Coding Code Mobile Technology, has not updated it or posted news on any of its social media accounts. This, coupled with today's removal from the Google Play Store, signifies that users looking for superuser access and the ability to root their Android devices should look for alternatives.

Though the free version of SuperSU has been delisted, as of this news post, the $3.75 SuperSU Pro is still available for purchase and download. For viable free alternatives, apps such as the open-source Magisk are still actively updated and available.
