This guide exlains How to ROOT Android phone or Tablet Just by flashing SuperSU ROOT recovery flashable zip file using TWRP Recovery. Here you will find all the necessary steps to flash SU ROOT binary On An Android device using a TWRP recovery.
WHAT IS SUPERSU AND HOW DOES IT HELPS IN GETTING ROOT ACCESS ON ANDROID DEVICE?
SuperSU ROOT binary is an Android Recovery flashable zip file developed by developer ChainFire. You can think of this as a magic package that works on just every Android device. this basically contains a “su” binary which allows the root access on an Android phone. A recovery has full access to add or modify the system content of an Android Operating system and hence this SuperSu package is able to give your Android the power of ROOT access.
ROOT ACCESS FOR CYANOGENMOD ROM USERS AND ROMS BASED ON CYANOGENMOD:
If you install SU ROOT binary by chainfire (SuperSU) on a CyanogenMod ROM or any other ROM built on top of CyanogenMod such as Resurrection Remix ROM or any other ROM then then there is a high probability that you will end up with bootloop. CyanogenMod has built-in “su” binary which is just hidden and needs to be accessible by a simple guide.
Just follow the link below to get ROOT access on CyanogenMod:
How to enable ROOT access on CyanogenMod 13.
The above guide is for CyanogenMod 13, but it should work fine for CyanogenMod 12 or CyanogenMod 11. If you have an older CyanogenMod version then I must say that you are on an older device or have not yet updated to a latest CyanogenMod version and this guide will be helpful to you.
ROOT ACCESS FOR LINEAGE ROM USERS AND ROMS BASED ON LINEAGE ROM:
Lineage ROM does not allow the users to use the inbuilt su binary by-default. So, you need to flash Lineage SU recovery flashable

If you don’t already have the Lineage SU package then get it from the below link:

Can you write which SuperSU version did you install?
Also cna you tell on which ROM have you installed?
Recently I have updated the SuperSU download link(s) on this page. Try with the latest SuperSU and if that does not work then try with the Stable SuperSU and let me know what happens.February 21, 2017 at 5:22 PM #13387
I am currently using Lineage 14.1 on my Samsung S4 Mini I9192 and have problem using SuperSU.
File Manager can not delete any file on the SD used as internal memory. Even after giving File Manager full root rights using SuperSU we get error message that access is denied to File manager on interactive shell.February 22, 2017 at 9:19 AM #13445
Hi ruddcl, you need to flash the SU binary on the Lineage OS 14.1 ROM to get ROOT access.
By default ROOT access is disabled on Lineage OS ROMs for Applications.April 19, 2017 at 3:41 PM #17869

@raya_rama Can you explain more about the issue??
Provide the following so that someone can help you out:
– Which phone?
– Which recovery are you using on that phone?
– What is the issue that you are facing? Take a picture and upload or at least put the text that you see when the error occurs.April 29, 2017 at 7:11 AM #18358

Do you have an unlocked bootloader on your phone?? If not yhen you need to unlock the bootloader first and then only you can use the fastboot to update the recovery partition.
If you have unlocked the bootloader then you need to update the host side USB driver. It could be a driver issue otherwise.
