Default [GUIDE] Change SuperUser client in ROM.zip [OPTIMA-TEAM]

Hello guys,
Today I will show you a simple method to change Superuser Client - From ChainsDD's/Koush's SuperUser to chainsfire's SuperSU.
I personally prefer the SuperSU over SuperUser.
If you are unsure, you might want to read up on it.
For a basic idea, look here - http://getandroidstuff.com/superuser...t-at-its-best/

So, if you're a ROM dev/porter, and would like to replace, this is what you need to do!

What you need
  • Latest SuperSU and binary - can be found here
  • The ROM you're working on!
  • WinRAR (or similiar)
  • 5 minutes of time!

Instructions
  1. Download the SuperSU.zip
  2. Extract it!
  3. From the common-folder copy the superuser.apk
  4. Open your ROM's flashable .zip via WinRAR
  5. Navigate to /system/app
  6. Replace the superuser.apk from the .zip we extracted
  7. Go to our extracted SuperSU folder
  8. From the arm-folder copy su
  9. Navigate through ROM.zip to /system/xbin
  10. Replace the su
  11. WinRAR will update the archive!
  12. Profit!

In case the above doesn't work out for you, then also copy chattr and chattr.pie from arm-folder to /system/xbin of your ROM.zip
(Thanks to @F4uzan and @-CALIBAN666- for the tip!)

Thats it!
Enjoy!!
