Hey guys,

Just got my OnePlus One today and did a oem unlock and root/custom recovery via command line, and I have the SuperSU app installed, it works when starting, installs successfully (or so it says) but whenever I try to use an app requiring SU access it just crashes and doesn't prompt me for access...

What happen and how do I fix it?

Update with screenshots


So I tried the windows AND Mac toolkits. The windows one just doesn't detect java so it doesn't work at all, and the Mac one "worked" but I'm still getting the exact same issue. Super SU is installed, and apparently working, but doesn't give root.

Shot 1 is my SuperSU app - clearly says SU is Enabled.

Shot 2 is Root Checker....which is clearly showing that I don't have root.



Wat.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated as I'm very excited to use this phone...but oh god how spoiled I've been with AdBlocking. No root is poop.

Your post is so confusing..... just download http://download.chainfire.eu/451/Sup...erSU-v2.01.zip
and flash it in TWRP then reboot.

Inside SuperSU app, in the settings ...

Scroll down to the CyanogenMod heading ...

Make sure that the RESPECT CM ROOT SETTINGS is unchecked.

I had to do this to get Titanium Backup to respond.

Good luck.

Good luck.

THAT did the trick. I'm guessing it's because the app thinks we're running CM that it comes with SU.

Thanks for the hand.
