SuperSU control and maintenance has been transferred to a newly formed company, Coding Code Mobile Technology LLC ("CCMT").
When I first released SuperSU back in early 2012, I could not have dreamt how big it would become. It has been spectacular seeing it grow from a side project to a popular app totalling almost a hundred million downloads and a couple dozen million active users - significantly more people than live in my entire country. The support of, and encouragement by, many in the Android community over the years has meant more to me than you can possibly imagine.
However, my passion for developing SuperSU has dwindled over the years, and it has gone from being a source of joy and fulfillment to a source of stress and a drain of mental resources. So after three and a half years, it is time to make a change. Over the years I have declined several interesting projects due to my commitment to SuperSU, and while I certainly do not regret doing so, long-term there are other projects and opportunities I am passionate about that I want to persue without having to worry about it.
XDA leadership has introduced me to the people behind CCMT, who will be taking over development and maintenance of SuperSU long-term. While I will continue to work on SuperSU for the moment, my involvement will slowly be phased out over the next two years - by the end of which I will have spent almost six years on this project.
The people at CCMT are no strangers to the root community. They have invested in, or own, a number of popular root apps (though I am not at liberty to disclose which ones) - chances are, you are running one of them right now. I believe SuperSU has found a good home there, and trust time will not prove me wrong.
On a practical note, until further notice (if any), non-Pro SuperSU APKs, ZIPs, etc. are absolutely still free to redistribute in unmodified form.
Thank you +Chainfire for the update, and for all you've done for the community (whether they know it or not, or choose to acknowledge it or not). Beer on me mate!
Thank my brother
I really don't know how to survive without your SuperSU.zip. :D
Cheer mate, all the best for future. :)
Thank you so much +Chainfire for making our devices so much more of a joy to play and tinker with! Enjoy your future endeavours ☺
Biggest bit of android news of the day by far...
Thank you Chainfire for all your hard work over the years! Your awesome, can't wait to see some more projects from you in the future. :) Congrats
Thank you For all. better times are coming ?
Thank you for all of your work over the years. Good luck with all future endeavors.
Gracias Maestro por todo ,saludos desde México ..
Thanks for your hard work and making our phones much better!
Thank you for all your hard work +Chainfire appreciate it!
Oh well. Thanks for a great product and development, but I fear this will ruin the plattform. Good luck in the future :)
You make people enjoy their android phones including me... hats off to u mr. chainfire
Not nice to read but I can understand you. We all get older and the interests change and new happen and once a hobby into a stress is it's time for something new. Thank you for all.
Thank you +Chainfire for everything you've done. salutes
As far as I know he is one of the biggest assets for the rooting community. I hope your next project is just as big of a hit!!
Thank you for all your great work!
you will never be forgotten...
You alone are likely the main reason why the ROM community has grown so much over the years
Thank you for your hard work.
Thanks for the update I've been following you sense the app was 1st released (under different aliases of course but that's beside the point ) and I hope to see what you end up doing next so good luck with you future endeavors and thanks again for all your hard work
Thanks a lot for your hard and smart work ;)
I don't know it's a good news or not. Anyway, thanks for you hard works for the Android Geeks community!
not good. Android rooting is going down with that.
Thanks for everything, Chainfire! You have awakened our devices to life!
Everybody sells eventually.
I'm no longer using a root device. But the days that I did, SuperSU was instrumental. Thank you for all your head work and contribution, and best wishes to your future endeavors.
Thanks for all your hard work and commitment!
May your future be bright!
+Chainfire thanks Chainfire for your hard work... You are Legendary.... And the Legend ?
Cheers Dude! When it's no longer fun you need to stop!
I wondered why I seen SuperSU Pro in the play store change to a new owner, thanks for the update.
Many thanks Man. Supersu is not just an app or Root. He represent an hope for a democratic digital future. Is the only key to open the black walled garden in which big companies want close all users like monkeys just to protect their economic interests.
Thank you for your hard work! I got involved in a project and 15 years later I was ready to pass it along. It's not an easy choice snags people tend to identify you as the project! I was told over and over I couldn't possibly leave it behind. It even made me rethink leaving. In the end I'm much happier and the project continues to dominate the market.
We'll be watching for your next project and I hope it's with android!
I just hope the new guys don't mess it up by putting their personal stamp on it
Thank You for all Chainfire !
Great product that we all live by.
Thank you for your hard work and your continued success. Your work is greatly appreciated for allowing me to use my phone my way. When stress enters, it is time to remove it so that you can grow. Your future projects will reflect your dedication that you have shown in SuperSu. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
So this means they will charge for root lol
Not at Liberty? We pay for the product & now arent 'allowed' to know who actually owns/controls it? Weak sauce.. Time to do some digging! If they end up being like Cheetah Mobile, I'm out!
Can't wait to see what your future projects may be. Thanks for years of quality work which helped me do my work better.
Thanks all your hard work and dedicated to make SuperSu what it is today...
Congratulations, it's a wise man who knows when to say "my work here is done". Best of luck on your new journey.
Thank you chainfire, for all of your work over the years!
At least you didn't give it to Cheetah Mobile.
This is all I can find about 'them' online thus far.. http://www.bizapedia.com/us/CODING-CODE-MOBILE-TECHNOLOGY-LLC.html
Thanks so much for all your works. You'd be greatly missed.
Owned by NSA?
thanks for your hard works.
Thank you so much for your contribution to the Android community! Excited to see future projects from you. :D
Thanks for everything! You've been great Goodluck on tour future endeavors! Best of luck!
Thank you for all your work and good luck for the future.
Thanks so much Chainfire, you've more than earned a break!
Could we get some clarification on who the heck exactly CCMT is? Can't find anything about them online, and like most distrust anything corporations get involved.
For a second there I thought you were selling the app to Cheetah Mobile LOL.
I of course want to thank you as well for your work on SuperSU
thanks for all +Chainfire... we follow you for your future projects... I think that superSu is able to walk on its legs now..
thanks, it was a great journey, wish you all the best in future projects
Sad to learn this news yet I understand.
Your work has pushed the Android frontier further and made it a tinkerer's wonderland
Life isn't worth living without supersu. You gave us a reason to live. Hopefully it continues that way.
Thank you for everything. SuperSU is a great product that will hopefully endure without you at the helm.
Thank you +Chainfire for all the times you gave me the chance to take FULL control of my Android devices. ?
+Chainfire Thank you for your phenomenal work on Samsung devices. It made the whole process of rooting to getting back to stock without the dreaded flash count!
Thanks for your efforts man!
The rats are leaving the sinking ship.
Google ended the era of rooted mobiles within the next 3 years. A clever decision
Thanks for all your hard work!
Thanks, but don't pussy out like a bitch. it's YOUR app, now a huge corp pis push ads and other shit to our phones because you backed out like a little bitch. Just find a way to monetize it and get rich bitch...
Best wishes to you and your future!
Well Chainfire. It was a pleasure to use your Software. Thanks for all the effort and the hard time.
Thank you for all the work you've put in over time. Much appreciation going out to you for superSU. ?
Hm, staying cautiously optimistic about this deal.
Thanks for your always-great work on SuperSU and other stuff - here's hoping things will remain great in Androidland!
My man, you should be inducted into the "Developer Hall of Fame" for what you have done! God bless you in your further endeavors!
Thank you very much for your HARD WORK...
Thank you mate and waiting for upcoming projects from you.....
Not sure why, but i guess this will become like quick pic.. Anyways, i understand that. When someone isn't happy with what he is doing, better stop doing it
Had the pleasure of meeting you in person (thanks for the beer!) not only are you a genuinely nice guy but you have been an integral part of the Android community and over the last few years have obviously made a massive effort in SuperSU and other projects.
Best wishes for your future endeavours, no doubt you won't be too far away. ?
Thank you for your good work.
*Grabs Hat Brim*
* Nods Head***
Thanks a lot for your work
Many thanks to you, +Chainfire for THIS and all the other projects you've done. Looking forward to what you might come to doing in the future as you hand off the torch on this one.
Keep living bro, bottoms up!!!
All the best brother & thanks for SuperSU!?
Thank you for your work.
Thank you for your hard work.
Thank you, +Chainfire !. You've given many people more power over their devices. Now I hope you continue to enjoy whatever you decide to pursue :-)
Dam, this is more big news than the new nexus today. Thanks for everything man!
Hopefully they don't do with SuperSU the same Cheetah Mobile did to Quickpic.
Wow. So long and thanks for all the fish +Chainfire. I'm sure you'll do awesome at whatever it is that you jump on next.
You deserve all praise and respect you find here. Happy trails
Ok.... Now focus on flashfire.
Thank you very much.
SuperSu is different.
SuperSU give super permissions to root users.
But flashfire is for flashing roms and backup&restore.
Thanks for all of the great apps especially SuperSu +Chainfire!
Thank you for all your effort, Chainfire! :)
Thanks alot for your hard work serving the world community
Will the people and apps behind CCMT be disclosed at any point?
Good luck with your new projects and thanks so much for your tremendous contribution to the Android community; I've been using your app almost since iit was first released and I can count on my fingers the apps with that level of quality all through those past years. Way to go ;)
Chainfire, Thanks a los of.. You are the best
Thank you for your hard work for community !
good luck man!
Thanks for all the work u have done for the community :)
Thanks for all the hard work.
Wow +Chainfire ! Sad to hear your fading out. But you've done a HELLUVAJOB man!!! I can't picture my life without #SUPERSU. I know it sounds borderline pathetic but it's true. Android as an OS has been corrupted through the years from the original intention by the big manufacturers in the phone business. It's thanks to guys like you it still remains the most free and open OS there is. For that I thank you and wish you the best of luck with whatever you set your mind to.???
Who paid who to get rooted phones on the NSA's 'cooperators' list :(
Thank you +Chainfire for all your hard work and dedication to the Android ecosystem.
Ty & God bless.....
Thanks for the most reliable root method available. I just had to flash a new Rom last night and SuperSU was one of the first things to be installed.
Good luck with all your new projects, thanks a lot for SuperSU!
Merci... Have fun with your next project ☺
Thank you for your hard work
Damn, All i can say is Thank you for everything you hace done. And your tools are one of THE reason I love Android so much.
Thank you. We'd all enjoy your effort. Much appreciated.
You don't need to qualify it. If it went away tomorrow, I'm still forever grateful that it existed at all. Thank you for your effort and time.
Sending Kudos and good Karma your way. SuperSU Pro, Stickmount Pro, pryfi. etc... are all outstanding!! Your efforts are massively appreciated.
Thank you for being that beacon of hope for prospective rooters!
Thank you for helping make the most of android! Appreciate the time and dedication.
Thank you for the explore of Android
Thank you for SuperSU and all of your great work. You have made a great contribution to the Android world, and I'm sure you will continue to for some time. I'm also sure that you are putting SuperSU in good hands, and I will support them unless they prove otherwise. I hope you have continued success with your future endeavors.
Thank you for your hard work Chainfire. You are the Chuck Norris of Android :-)
+Chainfire Thanks for your hard work on SuperSU and root requiring applications in general. SuperSU remains the undisputed SU app! While i understand the decision, it does make me wonder about SuperSU (pro).
Will the app undergo a name change in the future, anything on the horizon fo pro customers. Will pro users have to repurchase in the future...
With the "free time" coming up, is it safe to say development will restart on "Recently" and "CF.Lumen"? Will you be involved in rooting the new Nesus 5X and 6P?
Other than that, thanks again for all the hard work and good luck in your future coding career.
thank you +Chainfire for what you have done and what you will do!
Thank You for all you have done
Thank you +Chainfire for all your hard work on SuperSU!
Thank you +Chainfire for what you've done for the Android community and I'm sure you'll be remembered by history. Wish you a bright future!
So many of us have benefited from your good work. Thank you! All the best in your future endeavors.
Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication, you single handedly touched the rooting community with SuperSU and other apps. I will be looking forward to see what other projects you work on!
And of course I literally just donated to you yesterday after meaning to for years..
Thank you for your devotion to the android world. I fear that Android is moving towards being a policed platform and the development will be halted except by corporate. Thank you.
I've got this app since day one. All my droid phones are rooted with the help of this one motherfucking app. Thanks!
Thanks for your hard work and all the support for Super SU.
From Brazil. Thanks a lot for your brave, hard and awesome work +Chainfire. You're a legend!!
Thank you very much for your great effort!
Wow. Getting choked up yet? Nice run man. Build us the next gen cm!
Thank you Chainy. The mobile world is indeed in debted to you.
Thank you for making my phone really mine. All the best for you.

Best luck with your new projects and thank you so much for you dedication!
Thanks for all the time and hard work +Chainfire!

Root otg enable. Sm g800m ( galaxy s5 mini? :( help
Thank you! Best of luck in your future endeavors.
+Chainfire On the one hand it sounds terrible to hear that you stoped working on SuperSU. Because in my eyes it is one of the gratest Superuser apks.
But on the other hand you gave the work to others. So your work will be continued. I hope that they will continue your work like this project earns to be continued
I totaly understand why you disconnect the work. You will always be in the heart of the people. And you will always be the man who made the greatest superuser apk.
thank you for everything Chainfire..ive rooted every phone that ive had in my possession because of you. I just hope the new guys dont go adding extra crap to an already great app...just stick to the original formula and everything should be good
Root otg enable. Sm g800m ( galaxy s5 mini? :( Argentina help +Chainfire

I'll have to tur the notification off after posting this but I just have to say thank you sir. You have been in my life since my first Android device, the Motorola Droid X. I've donated over the years and do not regret it one bit. I wish you the best in your new endeavors. Cheers!!

Thank you for your hard work.
Chainfire, your name, work, and contributions need no explanation. Thanks for all the time and effort put into apps that have allowed so many people to do things that they eventually take for granted. If you feel it is time to move on, good wishes to your future endeavors. Just wish people didn't complain about every problem that comes up and bombard with requests without thought to dev. Hope the new company lives up to your standards.

Any news for su update on Android 6.0? Hate using custom kernel just for root
Thank you +Chainfire - appreciate all your work, continued android dev, and wish you the best in all your future projects!

+Stephen Cunningham hells core works b10 and ex and blu spark. But I want twrp su only like 5.1 lol
Thank you and go ahead. Bring more useful things to these world.
Thank you +Chainfire you are the best

Oola saluds de ecuador +Chainfire porf com ago par tener root en mi samsung j1 porfa ayudam en eso bro graxias
Recently I installed SuperSu on my Kyocera Hydro Icon (has TWRP recovery on device)... Upon opening SuperSu I was prompted to 'update binaries' and I selected the update button for CWM/TWRP. Once selecting this button the phone did a reboot and upon the phone coming back on the little green icon man showed up with the turning gears and the update line flashes to about 1/2 inch and then quickly repeats this over and over and over...
Because of this my phone cannot ever boot completely up and does not allow me to boot into my recovery program because of the above problem...
I am urgently asking you provide me with some means of getting around this problem...
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you and all the best.
Thank you @Chainfire, I am a newbie on all things Android and real!y appreciate your knowledge and the way you share it with others. I thought, mistakenly, that it would be no problem following along these posts(on XDA) and customising my devices. Wrong. Anyway thanks, again for all you've done.
Gracias por tu esfuerzo desinteresado, para el bien de todos.
Thank you for all your hard work!
thank look +Autonoleggio Alghero Aeroporto - Aiguarentacar
Thanks you f@Chainfire for all the work so far and wishing you good luck for the future.
My superSU fail to load binary what to do???
Thank you +Chainfire you have done a wonderful job. All the best for your future endeavours
After Rooting Samsung galaxy core 2 & Install superSu but it is not installed in my Samsung galaxy core 2. Why is it not installed please tell me what region. Please help me.
Just found this - it's the answer to a question I posted in a recent 500px comment thread. So the SuperSU Pro license I purchased IS correct - but now I don't know if you will get the much deserved contribution. I hope so. If not, let me know, and I'll have to purchase some other ChainFire app. :-D
Thank you for this amazing app +Chainfire. We all really miss you on SuperSU.
Hope you amaze us still more with your new projects.
PS : Really wish it was still & just you behind SuperSU
Thanks for the hard work! Good luck!
Thanks so much.
I appreciate all the work you've put into this over the years, truly. You're a real champion of the community, no doubt! I am somewhat disappointed that you chose to give CCMT access to SSU on your Google Play account, though. Sorry for the incoming wall of text, but this is an important issue for me.
I can deal with losing SuperSU long term if that's your decision, but having updated to 2.78 instinctively without ever knowing about this sale, I feel like my phone could be compromised. Uninstalled and reflashed 2.76 but worried it could already be too late.
I would like to have had the opportunity to make the decision to switch over to an unknown Chinese company's system-level control app myself... whether or not you trust them, that affects the security of my personal information.
Can you at least reassure that nothing in the source to this point is malicious? I don't know how updates to the source are handled, but this is the first version I haven't seen a zip for and it makes me worry that it could have even modified the system and persisted past uninstall. I assume you wouldn't build and upload a flashable zip without checking over the source, but with CCMT uploading straight to your account I don't have any idea how involved you are with a version they built and uploaded.
Been using this app(pro donation) for years on my trust of you as an individual, but I don't feel the same about an unknown company when bank info and my google account are involved... basically my entire life right there. Thank you for all of your hard work, and I hope that CCMT will prove to be a worthy steward of your legacy in putting control into the hands of the user!
Got to this late but non the less I appreciate everything you've done for without you I wouldn't of been able to play on my devices like I love to do. Wish you all the best on your new endeavors
Thank you so much
Thank you ?
I think SuperSu will not be OK in that company. Hope time will prove me wrong.
Thank you for your great work! But I think a company will destroy the charm of SuperSU
This is not the place to discuss your feelings about this. Can't you guys read.. . Stop spamming a thank you thread for a great dev/contributer
