    This guide exlains How to ROOT Android phone or Tablet Just by flashing SuperSU recovery flashable zip file using TWRP Recovery. Here you will find all the necessary steps to flash SuperSu On An Android device using a TWRP recovery.

    WHAT IS SUPERSU AND HOW DOES IT HELPS IN GETTING ROOT ACCESS ON ANDROID DEVICE?

    SuperSU 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 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 or SuperSU (built by Chainfire).
    I am sure you already have the Lineage SU binary zip package or the SuperSU zip package to install it via TWRP recovery.

    If you don’t already have the Lineage SU package then get it from the below link:
    Get the SU binary for Lineage 14.1 ROM (download from STEP 1 of the link provided) or get the SuperSU from the below link and proceed further.

    DOWNLOADS FOR THIS SUPERSU ROOT GUIDE:

    Download link for Latest SuperSU
    Download link for STABLE SuperSU
    Download link for SuperSU BETA

    If you are looking to enable ROOT on Lineage OS then you need the following SU binaries built by Lineage OS team:
    Download the suitable SuperSU binary provided by Lineage OS team to flash on Lineage OS 14.1/13 ROMs:
    ARM32 SuperSU download link for Lineage OS 14.1/13 ROMs for ARM32 Platforms (all legacy phones are ARM 32-bit. I cannot say what legacy phones, you need to verify of your own)
    ARM64 SuperSU download link for Lineage OS 14.1/13 ROMs for ARM64 Platforms (all newer phones are ARM 64-bit ARCH)
    x86 SuperSU download link for Lineage OS 14.1/13 ROMs for Intel Platforms

    Hi Venkatesh,

    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.

    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.

    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.
