You can remove the existing SU app, SuperSU is a full replacement, binary and APK.

Small update to v0.71. Primarily to fix a freak installation issue I had on one of my devices.

Temporary unroot and apps
Will this work around the problem of purchased Google movies that won't play because the app checks for root? Also with Google Wallet now checking for rooted devices I wanted to see if this was a true work around.

I'm not sure about movies (they are not available in my country) but I know wallet checks a number of things... your build.prop fingerprint must be correct, you may not have /system/app/Superuser.apk present (the CWM ZIP installs this!) and no "su".

It can work with SuperSU, but it's tricky.

Thank you sir for this! I will probably be buying the pro version but I know this is just the initial release of this app. It would be nice to get a workaround for video's. I tried ghost mode on superuser and it still wouldn't let me play movies. They have it locked down lol.

Great app, thank very much. Gone pro happily

Just a quick report. All is well other than having removed Superuser (and rebooted), I checked all my rooted apps for functionality and they were all fine except one. When I checked I was still able to adjust autostart permissions using Gemini App Manager, I was informed that 'Superuser' had to be installed for the app to work. I reinstalled Superuser (in addition to SuperSU) and the problem went away.

Thanks again!

Quite probably Gemini App Manager checks for the Superuser package name (weird) instead of if the su command is available.

Yeah it would be nice, but as long as I'm in an area where movies aren't available at all, it's unlikely to happen.

To be honest, Google should be punished for this behavior. They are treating you like a criminal just because you have root.
