As usual, Play will need a few hours to update. The flashable ZIP is available from the XDA thread right now @ http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053
Fixed possible issue with OTA survival
Fixed su binary notification freeze issue when suid bit lost
Fixed background root command freeze when suid bit lost
Improved su binary version and root presence detection
Added cleanup stage (detected when needed) before converting to system app, to prevent settings loss
Language files updated
Edit: All CF-Auto-Root's ( http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/ ) have also been updated with SuperSU v1.05 now.
I can flash the zip of supersu 0.98 on android 4.2.2? updating via ota of Nexus 7 I lost root
Thank you for the continued progress of SuperSU +Chainfire , even though I didn't have any issues with the last versions.
+Gabriele La Greca I would advise using the latest zip, not v0.98.
+Gabriele La Greca, spend the money for the Pro version then, which includes the feature to attempt to survive OTA updates. So far, it has succeeded for me.
Hmm, not yet in Play Store Germany.
Great continued support from +Chainfire! He certainly stands behind his products!!!
+Gabriele La Greca, well....there are other solutions as well. I'm not sure what you mean by that...if you don't have any spare money to spend, the Play Store is restricting your access, or whatever. supercurio Project Voodoo "OTA RootKeeper" is one such program, and it's available both in Play and independently on their own site (or at least it says so in the description). As far as I can tell, it uses the same basic concept as SuperSU's routines: keeping a backup copy of the su binary in case something decides to change the mode bits of or remove /system/xbin/su and will restore it if either of those things happen. For me, the 4.1.x to 4.2 OTA update of my N7 removed the setUID and setGID bits on /system/xbin/su. No matter...I just booted TWRP from fastboot again, and viola, reroot.
but not much point. just flash the zip after the upgrade and end
+Joe Philipps You're being a little overzealous. Let the woman be.
+Paul W, just so I understand you correctly and hopefully to avoid offense in the future, who are you talking about? What woman? And furthermore I do not understand what zeal I exhibit. I am just saying, one of the features of SuperSU Pro is keeping root across OTA updates (and what I'm implying is it's well worth the money for Pro, at least to me for all its features), and if for whatever reason one cannot acquire SuperSU Pro, there are alternatives to keeping one's root, and I named one specific example. Again, I don't see the zeal in that.
Thanks for keeping on top of updates +Chainfire it's nice to know that within days of google pushing an update, you're already focused on restoring compatibility and fixing issues that might crop up, even when they only affect small subsets of your users. This was one of the first apps if yours I ever bought, and I prefer it over any other SU program out there.
Just went pro today with SuperSU. Thanks for all the work, it saves me a ton!
+Chainfire I have some projects could we have a conversation to discuss details
It seems OTA survival doesn't work on my phone.Galaxy Nexus
I'm going to switch to your app and add it in my kernel for auto install if you don't mind :-) (of course I will be using the free version)
