SuperSU still remains as one of the most popular rooting solutions for Android devices and it supports a wide variety of old and new devices.
What is SuperSU?
SuperSU is one of the world’s most popular tool for rooting solutions available for Android devices. SuperSU allows advanced management of Superuser access rights for all the apps on your device that need root. Even though the development has stopped a long time ago, it is still very popular, thanks to its support for a wide range of devices. No ads and good compatibility. It’s a great tool for anyone looking to have root access on their Android device.
What is Rooting?
The Android operating system is based on Linux. On Linux and other UNIX-like operating systems, the root user is equivalent to the Administrator user on Windows. The root has complete access to the entire operating system and can do anything. By default, Android OEMs do not ship the Android devices with root access out of the box and because of this, you won’t be able to run certain apps that require root access. The reason why Android OEMs do this is for security. Most users would not need root access for their day to day activities and this is why root is not a must-have feature.
Make no mistake, the root user account always exists in Android, after all, it’s Linux based. But there’s just no way to access it out of the box. “Rooting” is the process of gaining access to this root user account. This is often compared to jailbreaking an iOS device, but rooting and jailbreaking are fairly different.
Technicality aside, root access on an Android device allows you to do a lot of useful and interesting things. With root, you can remove bloatware (the apps that come pre-installed on your device), enable tethering even if your carrier is blocking it, manually take a complete back up of your Android device including app data, and much more.
Once you gain root access, you can find a variety of root-apps on Google Play Store and install the ones that fit your needs.
