Hi all,

In my recent testing on superSU app and binary. I was able to test versions of SuperSU and found out that:

1. from version 1.51 till latest (2.04 beta). SuperSU binary has an issue on detecting sd card mounting (internal and external) on our device. This caused Titatium backup and other root apps that access sd cards to fail.

2. Using SuperSU version 1.42 to 1.45 do not have the issue above. SuperSU app and binary was fully working.

I also reported this to SuperSU thread of Chainfire. Here

Hope this gets resolved soon.

Note: The official SuperSU version 1.45. You can flash this to resolve Titanium backup not working issue. REMEMBER to not let play store update the superSU app to the latest version until the issue is resolved by Chainfire.

The bug is in the installation script! It uses(tries to use) busybox in /bin, but there it isn't! So that's why it fails to work properly. Fixing this by changing the the path of busybox fixes all issues with SuperSU!

Cheers

I used symlink for busybox to be available in both xbin and bin in KulayOS but the problem still exists. I think the problem is deeper that a busybox problem.

@Zoltan-X, can you post your fixed version of superSU?

http://www.android-hilfe.de/attachme...u-zip-root.zip I published it here in a German forum. None the less it's all about missing historic in "/shin"not sbin or bin and the installer script uses busybox for installing! (/
sbin/busybox cp .../su .../daemonsu and...)

Cheers folks!

Titanium backup backup still fails. SuperSU 1.45 works 100% for me.

This is a bit bad news. Chainfire cannot test without a device.
