What is SuperSU?

SuperSU allows for advanced management of Superuser access rights for all the apps on your device that need root. SuperSU has been built from the ground up to counter a number of problems with other Superuser access management tools.

Features include:

  • Superuser access prompt
  • Superuser access logging
  • Superuser access notifications
  • Per-app notification configuration
  • Temporary unroot
  • Deep process detection (no more unknowns)
  • Works in recovery (no more segfaulting)
  • Works when Android isn't properly booted
  • Works with non-standard shell locations
  • Trusts ADB connection
  • Always runs in ghost mode
  • Wake on prompt

The Pro version additionally offers:

  • OTA survival mode (no guarantees)
  • Full color-coded command content logging (input/output/error)
  • Per-app logging configuration
  • Per-app user override
  • PIN protection

Magisk icon Magisk is better alternative

since i am using MIUI, every update of ROM will remove superSU so i was finding better alternative and then i found magisk which wont be removed even there is update of ROM

because magisk create an altered mask of the system without changing the system itself.
