AndroidPolice broke the news that SuperSU broke the magical 100 million users barrier on Google Play last night.
As I understand, these are unique Google accounts over the lifetime of the app. My own servers count another 160 million downloads, and external sites serve SuperSU downloads as well, but obviously you can't just add these numbers together.
Then there's the fact that many users will have used multiple different Google accounts over the years, but there are also untold millions of devices (especially in Asia) that do run SuperSU but do not run Google Play.
So, the true number of users over the app's lifetime is not really knowable, but I would guess it is indeed somewhere around that 100 million mark. Of course, this number does not represent active users today - years ago when I had access to those numbers, they were between a quarter and a third of the total listed.
Either way, I'm grateful to be lucky enough to see a milestone like this reached for something I made, and a little proud too! A heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported me and my work over the years - it would not have been possible without you.
Your work has been an important part of what makes Android "Android"
You deserve to be proud, sir. That's quite the achievement. You do excellent work.
Congratulations my friend ? you deserve more
Been in the Android game since the G1. Many don't know your importance in helping make Android what it is today. Thank you
You should be proud! Not many of us can claim they've touched 100 million people's lives. That's 1.3% of the population of this planet! Congratulations! ?
Congratulations to the master. Thank you for all your great work.
You are the star here, not the app, not us.. but you.. its you who made and showed the difference between ios and android for the masses
Congrats!!! I know I've installed/re-installed SuperSu on countless devices over the years...
Congratulations bud ?
Make an actual firepit put a chain around it, get marshmallows and chocolate and gram crackers, pop a cold beer kick back and celebrate! (What I would do)
Not use it anymore
Congratulations and celebration
No sir, thank you for your hard work you deserve it and even more. We are proud of you. I wish you all the best in your next endeavor. ???
congrats, android without +Chainfire its not the same
time to celebrate and donate
Amazing work on your part +Chainfire, I am just hoping Codingcode doesn't drop the ball on what is your hard work.
... and I'm eternally grateful that you created SuperSU, thank you Sir.
due props to you. Have been with Android from day one rooting and roming.
It was me, me, me....
When I downloaded Super SU on my 6P, the notification light started flashing, the display flashed strobing technicolors and the sounds of a casino jackpot vibrated out of the front facing stereo speakers. And a manic advertising voice over informed me that I'd won an all expenses trip to Floston Paradise....I'm famous....I downloaded the hundred millionth copy of SU! Do I get to meet the Grand Master himself at Floston?
Way to go. You're my hero, can't leave on Android without Superuser.
it never work for me
Thanks for all you have done for our Android communities and congratulations Sir.. way it go ?
+Louix Chazique be careful that Gary Oldman and his minions don't try to kill you.
+Dan Fryling You gotta stuck your head above the parapet sometimes!
Stick, I mean
Congratulations Sir..but i got superuser from another app and i've tried to switch to your SuperSu..but i 've failed..can anybody help me..thanks
Congrats my friends
Congrats you have definitely made a grand program and I'm enjoying it everyday
What a Lukewarm celebration!
Well, im asia. And most of time i will flash supersu via twrp, because i will need install supersu binary if i just download supersu from play store. So if i can get full setup with supersu from play store, you may get more downloaf from me ?
Without you Android would have become a locked down OS by now. You and your work are unparalleled in the world of Android.
I know it is none of my business but over the years Google and other developers must have at least taken an interest in you and your work. Thank you for being true to being "out there" for the end user. 100,000,000 is by your own post a Conservative figure. It is an immense achievement.
10% of Android users therefore hate bloatware to the extent of gluing the extra mile
Without you the root user community would be far worse off. The apps you create work beautifully and are simple in design. SuperSU and flashfire are in my view your 2 best apps ever. +Chainfire keep doing what you're doing, you deserve every bit of gratitude. I salute you! ?
The One and the only
+Chainfire I use your masterpiece from 2013 on my first android samsung galaxy s3 mini ... Su is the best and the stability I've used up to this moment with my second android device asus zf2 regular x86 from 2015 ... Thousands of thanks sir has shown to the world what is the meaning of rooting actually ... For my personal rooting is mandatory in the android ... Even if I can feel the device aplle ios 11 bionic and upcoming versions, I have made sure to in jailbreak like android device to be able to do full customize without limit ... I will faithfully use your works su and wait for experiment from you sir ... ?????
Интересно описал..... только что то с тюрьмой не очень ясно....
you have made android my number one os. I just wish it was easier to unlock bootloaders on a few of my devices.
Big up yourself mr Chainfire
Thanks a million for this excellent piece of software.
Bravo ! C'est du top
Congratulations SuperSU! Finally got it right just 5 minutes ago for my Galaxy Core Prime!
