SBIN bugfixes

A number of issues with SBIN mode have been fixed that prevented proper operation on some devices. Among other weirdness, for some users that meant the SIM was not detected on SR2, which is of course fixed now.

Some users complained that the XBIN folder they used in the past to store busybox (among other things) had disappeared from the PATH. From SR3 onwards, /sbin/supersu/bin and /sbin/supersu/xbin will be on the PATH again, but only inside root shells. In non-root shells, binaries stored there will not be available (without referencing the full path).

The advised busybox installation path is /sbin/supersu/xbin.

External sdcards

Some Samsung users (running primarily CyanogenMod/LineageOS-based ROMs) have been reporting loss of (external) sdcard access since v2.80. This issue has finally been found and fixed in this update.


Some changes have been made to improve FlashFire compatibility in SBIN mode. This will require FlashFire v0.58 (to be released shortly) to work properly.

Compression formats

The following compression formats should now be supported for kernel binaries and ramdisks:

  • gzip

  • bzip2

  • lz4

  • lzo

  • lzma

  • xz

It should be noted that lz4 uses the v1.5.0 format when recompressing. Some boot images out there are using older variants and may not support decompressing the newer variant. These boot images will fail to boot when patched.

AROMA configurator

Most users never need to change any of SuperSU's advanced flashing options, which is normally done by setting variables in /data/.supersu. This can be tricky and cumbersome to do, so I've created an AROMA package to make this easier. Please see the thread linked below for further details.


suhide has been updated to v1.07. Please see the thread linked below for further details.


As with all SR releases, you are supposed to update them by flashing the ZIP, not by installing the APK.

Anybody know how to install busybox on oreo witch 2.82SR3? I can't select /sbin/supersu/xbin in

Filipe Costa commented on 2017-09-15 at 23:59:

Hello +Chainfire​ i would be the happiest guy in the world if you enable supersu root to be hidden for pokemon go so i could play it because i have an android 4.4.2 rooted device with your supersu but unable to login pokemon go because of the android root access.

(Magisk can do that but only compatible with android version 5.0+ and there is no other rom for my device above 4.4.2[huawei honor 3x: ascend g750])

Can you help me?


Taylor Bell commented on 2017-09-17 at 15:04:

+Petr Matula you need to fastboot boot TWRP and flash the zip file of BusyBox in order to make it stick in your system. Download the BusyBox zip file in the link and fastboot BOOT TWRP, select the BusyBox zip file & swipe to flash, then select reboot system.

Taylor Bell commented on 2017-09-17 at 15:15:

+Filipe Costa you need to flash "suhide" zip in recovery. It hides the sun binary from apps that check for it. Just Google "suhide chainfire"

Petr Matula commented on 2017-09-17 at 15:22:

+Taylor Bell I know this method. But i prefer install into /data partition, not into /system

Taylor Bell commented on 2017-09-17 at 15:40:

+Petr Matula try this method....

Go to it's settings and change your install path *if your using supersu like I am path is:


After you set your path, install. Then reboot.

After boot the BusyBox app used states that busybox wasn't installed but when I used a BusyBox checker appit's installed and working. My Cerberus app works too and blocks the status bar from locked screen. Busybox has been working after reboots. It sticks 

Anyways, busybox is working on Oreo ver.11

Filipe Costa commented on 2017-09-17 at 23:08:

+Taylor Bell but suhide is compatible with android 4.4.2?
