Chainfire releases BETA for SuperSU on Android N

Android N Super User
Less than a week since Google unexpectedly dropped a developer preview of Android N on us last Wednesday, developer Chainfire has released a BETA version of SuperSU, the tool used to manage root on Android.

The release is very BETA at the moment, with Chainfire warning that so far he’s only tested it on the Nexus 5X, though other intrepid flashers have tried it out on other Android N based Nexus devices.

As Chainfire points out there have been some changes under the hood regarding SELinux handling, so this Beta will remain standalone from the main Beta branch. This release of SuperSU addresses the changes to SELinux handling in Android N, and allows the system to continue running SELinux Enforcing Mode.

If you’re interested in trying out the new SuperSU for Android, you can grab it from the XDA-Developers forum where all the ZIP files for the Nexus 5X, 6P, Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi and LTE) and the Pixel C are available.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
