In the ongoing effort of having root on 6.0 as streamlined and seamless as possible, SuperSU v2.61 BETA was just released.
The last few BETAs have been providing SuperSU installs without touching /system, as we are modifying the boot images anyway. Since a few days ago (v2.60) the ZIP installer automagically does this boot image patching for you (for Android 6.0+, and Samsung 5.1+), significantly reducing the hassle for devices this is compatible with.
While this works great on the 6.0.x stock Nexus firmwares and even custom ROMs such as CM13, we know it still has some issues on for example the G3 and some Samsung 5.1 devices.
Keep in mind this is still a BETA, and you should only be using it if you are tech-savvy enough to fix your device if you mess it up.
In the thread below, the information in posts #2 and #3 are both relevant, with the v2.61 BETA download attached to #3. The information is still a bit scattered and sparse, a clean-up is on the to-do list :)
Will this work on the oneplus one running cm13? Or is it only for nexus devices? +Chainfire
+Chainfire I'm assuming this still works for 6.0.1?
Does system-less root still work with Android Pay?
+Matthew Garbett I used the 2.60 version and it worked you're good :)
+Rami Debab Good to know :P I'm hoping that we get COS 13 Android 6.0.1 on the Bacon :P
not work in CM 13 .. Doualboot note 3
Working great on Nexus 6p with 6.0.1 ???
Does this decrypt the device, though? I just installed it on my decrypted N6, but I keep my N6P encrypted.
Thank you! Works great on my 5X running 6.0.1.
+Shawn Villaire Is your 5x completely stock otherwise, and encrypted?
+andy o Yes stock and encrypted. Now rooted and Android Pay works!
Confirmed on Nexus 5 6.0.1 :)
Nice work. I tryed now with new 6.0.1 factory image on my N7 2013 and N5, both with latest elementalx kernel. Works fine and I have more space in system (for xposed, android pay not available in my country).
But some apps don't have root acces (es file exploer - I do not know about better matching compensation, quick reboot - replaced others app).
Does anyone know if there is an error in the system less access or standard detection method and the requirement to root acces to the applications?
Well, the last inconvenience during the transition 2.52-> 2.61 was to erase history, I had all the apps again allow root access.
Anyone else with a Nexus 5 noticed having a ridiculous battery percentage since updating to Android 6.0.1, SuperSU 2.61 and the latest boot image? Mine is currently on 3, 781% which definitely isn't correct...
I've been using this v2.60 since yesterday on my moto G3 6.0 and it's been working pretty well, only problem I've seen was flashify not wanting to backup my recovery.img
Confirmed working on OnePlus One running Omnirom 6.0 by herna and also by samstone86! Awesome stuff +Chainfire!
+Burung Gereja I would start with a clean /system setup. The point of chainfire's new method is so that /system stays stock and untouched.
+Cris Castillon in theory it should. Android Pay is going to check if your entire setup is GMS certified too though.
Binary update 2.60 good (normal)
Binary update 2.61 failed! (Normal)
On Galaxy S5 with Android 5, whats wrong?
+George Charters I know the older beta did not. Maybe this one does but why try if you have a ROM with integrated root, just turn it on. No extra SU needed.
Nice, which zip did you use for the oneplus? I'm running cm13. Thanks +Juve Zavala
hmmmm...I thought you wanted to leave this alone, pass it on to someone else.
6.0.1 ? Can i root it?
How come I get fail on flashing systemless? N5
Do I still need to flash the custom boot image for rooting Nexus 5 with su 2.61?
Una pregunta ise root a un Note 3 SM-N900T lollilop 5.0 y no me pasaba de cuando lo enciendo de actualizacion de aplicsciones decia system se detubo y se apagaba, pero lo encendi como 3 veces y encendio normal despues ire a tener algun problema mas adelante en el futuro con el.
+Fabricio Nahun Rodriguez Agurcia parece que todo esta bien. Creo, como lo describiste, que estaba actualizando todas las aplicaciones solamente. Si Samsung sale con actualizaciones en el futuro es possible de que pierdas root.
+Juve Zavala ok gracias mira antes este mismo telefono lo havia echo root pero era version 4.4.2 y todo me iva bien de alli lo actualize con kies y perdi el root y me costo allar una pagina confiable donde exista el root para esta 5.0 pero en fin espero que no tenga fallas y no creo que samsung siga tirando actualizaciones para la note 3 despues de 5.0 por eso lo volvi a rootear y si saliera una nueva actualizacion solo lo conecto a kies y me actualiza de vuelta lo que cuesta es que lanzen un root de vuelta compatible con este telefono de T mobile
In the "hammerhead" Nexus 5, 6.0.1 (MMB29K) the brush into modify boot.img for the Nexus will cause battery display abnormal. Hope repair

I just keep having this problem, and all the apps That need SU root permissions doesn't seem to work propriety. Other ones just doesn't respond at all, is not the first time a rooted a device, I even buyied the Pro version of supersu, I have a galaxy tab S 10.5 wt 5.0.2 lollipop. I need some help here.
+Ethan M. Kingo root has a new version it surprised me when I rooted my tab 4 with it.,but you need binaries installed first chain fire has cf- auto root too?I'm not sure if it roots the 10"? But just adding su won't do anything.?samsung with the Odin mode they don't like root my s5 was a mother!
+don fundroid I know I need root access, and I have it already ?, my problem is that it keeps asking me for binaries update, and it just keeps failing.
Ohhh!?zip and sighn it and install threw recovery that's what I would do?
Or if rooted use the old version or hopefully you saved a backup?and unzip su and install it as a standalone?i used your new 2.66 su it worked on my nvidia shield perfect! When it said install normal that's what I did? It went threw?now I'm running 2.66 and still on lollipop? nvidia is slacking on the older devices using the old k1 tn8 version now its about the Kepler 192 core?

Hello I have a E6533, I would like to know a root method for him'm with 32.1.A.1.185 not mind doing a downgrade. Thank you so much
+Petr Matula for es file explorer use root explorer to move the 7 files under "system/bin/" to "su/xbin/"... reboot & it will give you root auth pop-up for SuperSU by Chainfire.
Your response is swift :-)
Now, supersu is a stable v2.78 and ES have fixed this problem.
+Ethan M. when you do a root option ("r/w") using say root explorer when moving files for es file explorer to the correct place to get root auth... this will get SuperSU to prompt for "binary update". Just let it do this the normal way, not TWRP & it will download/install right then & there on desktop and prompt to restart. Your good to go after this. If it fails start over. Flash cfSuperSU, do a root "r/w" file move with root explorer and wait for prompt again. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO THOSE EXPERIENCING THIS EXACT BINARY PROMPT
