Choose adb sideload on twrp.

Then the command: adb sideload SU.zip
you mean "adb sideload UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.89.zip"? (sorry I just want to be 100% sure so I make no mistakes)

Yep! I didn't know what the file was named so I just shortened it up to SU.zip


Pro-tip: You can rename files to something shorter such as SU.zip to make it quicker to type in command and eliminate the possibility of mistakes.

You are welcome. I am always glad to help someone doing things the right way!

Run an app that requires root. If SuperSu requests access, you are rooted.
