SuperSU updated to v1.93

Just uploaded a new SuperSU update to Play, which will be available for you all in a few hours. Of course, the flashable ZIP is already available through this link: , and the XDA thread is here:

As usual, some bugfixing has been going on, including a nasty case of root not working if the ROM chef launched the daemon very early in the init process (much earlier than install-recovery). The environment would not have been properly initialized at this point. 

Apparently there were also still some issues around regarding the terminal window size, and some adjustments have been made in that area. If you're still experiencing issues in this area, let me know. (Note that adb shell itself often messes this up as well, so be sure you're using something like OpenSSH or on-device Terminal Emulator to reproduce issues yourself before reporting them).

The su binary now also has a "--mount-master" option that connects you to a su session in the main mount namespace. Mount commands in this session should affect all processes. This is still a bit experimental, and getting it working requires a reboot after upgrading the binaries from a pre-1.93 version. This feature has been asked for a lot by devs, and it escapes the need to hijack system services to affect system-wide mounts, which is becoming more complicated with every Android release. A new version of StickMount will be released in a few days as well, taking advantage of this feature, and thus avoiding a number of issues some are seeing.

There have been several requests to update the UI to work on 240x240 (smartwatches). It's on my list, but I've not gotten around to it yet. Some other UI things need some adjustments as well - next update, hopefully.


  • Add --mount-master option to su binary

  • Fix for am crash (no GUI popups) when daemonsu started from an exceptionally early init.d

  • Improved terminal support (changing dimensions)

  • Remove daemonsu STDOUT/STDERR noise

  • Cleaned custom process names

  • Updated language files

Steven McHutchieson commented on 2014-02-06 at 18:02:

Just installed on my N7 and N4. Updated fine on the N7, but on my N4, after updating the binaries, I got the error "installation failed, reboot and try again". Rebooted, on 1.93, but no option to update the binaries again. Still have root, and root apps are working as expected. Just a glitch?

Would love to enjoy this but my phone doesn't recognize root because of this update. I understand this happens from time to time so I'm not upset I just don't know how to fix it. I've looked all over and can't find how :(

Anyone know how? It's an HTC one att version

Hey +Chainfire! I don't have to tell you, you're a legend and I'm honored to get in touch with you.

I recently moved to an HTC one, and when I use apps that require root, randomly the phone reboots. Do you have any idea what can be causing this? I'm on stock 4.4, about to move to 4.4.2.

Dennis Bareis commented on 2014-02-15 at 04:27:

I'm rooted and have this installed, if I try to use the "SU" command in ADB, it causes problems (repeats commands to the console but doesn't execute them, I don't think its returned to the shell), is that this apps fault? I'm trying to get my phone working again...

Nishant Mehta commented on 2014-02-16 at 02:03:

I highly appreciate your work in android. I m stuck some issues can u give solution?

Yannick Bourret commented on 2014-06-06 at 19:20:

Sadly, the SuperSU (v1.93 to v1.94) update from Play Store has corrupted the TWRP. I am worried that if I redo the steps with newer SuperSU (1.99) that it will erase or corrupt the recovery files. On Nexus 5 (4.4.2)

(Edit: Android Update 4.4.1 to 4.4.2 cause to corrupt the TWRP and SuperSU, restoring the image and SuperSU to newer version, worked and nothing lost) :)
