SuperSU is being updated in order to make it compatible with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The SuperSU v2.52 BETA is already out for users to download and test out. Chainfire, the man and developer behind SuperSU, has released this version as an experiment. This version is somewhat proof that you can gain root without modifying the system partition itself. In simpler terms, it is now a much more simpler and easier process to gain root via SuperSU. As it is in development and is labelled as an “experiment”, it comes with some drawbacks and bugs. You can download SuperSU V2.52 BETA right now and experiment on your on. You can easily unroot afterwards if you don’t find it suiting.
SuperSU has been very influential in root development, it is the sole basis of all root modifications and apps. Knowing that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will have a stable root process thanks to SuperSU is really uplifting for Android developers. As we have mentioned before, obtaining root without modifying the system partition is a big deal, to further clarify and simplify it, Chainfire has created a somewhat feature list regarding SuperSU v2.52 BETA. You can find the download link to SuperSU v2.52 BETA and the feature list right below.
SuperSU v2.52 BETA Features:
- A cleaner approach and design
- Easier unroot
- An unlittered /system partition
- Excludes things like “sugote”, which are not needed on Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- OTA’s are slightly easier now, as reflashing boot image is usually a lesser hassle than reflashing an entire /system.
- Most importantly, this does not soft brick your device if you do not have the correct kernel installation. Previous methods to root Android 6.0 required a SELinux policy patch in the kernel, without which, the device would not boot. With this method, if the supporting kernel is absent, you won’t have root but the device will boot.
