Default [Q] Supersu question

I appologize if this is the wrong forum, please move the thread if it is.

I have a quick question for whoever can help. I have been working on a new ROM and have everything perfect now including Aroma installer. The only issue that I am having now though is that once installed, It doesnt seem to have working root. It installed supersu apk and it looks like all the files are in the correct places however when I start supersu it gives the "Supersu binary is not installed and cannot install it, this is a problem". Nothing else obviously has root either.

I would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction as to what may be causing this. Thanks in advance!

I know this supersu below ships with the system binary, You may need to extract, or download su and install it to /system/xbin before installing supersu

httpscolon//f-droiddotorg/repository/browse/?fdcategory=Security&fdid=com.koushikdutta.superus er

pull su alone here httpcolon//downloads.androidsudotcom/superuser/su-bin-3.1.1-arm-signed.zip

you have to fix the url, i have too low a post count to post links

Thanks but I just double checked and the su binary is in system/xbin. I have also tried re-coppying a fresh su there in the outcome is still the same.

Pretty sure it makes a difference on what phone you are building for, because sometimes there can be something in the kernel preventing it too. And what kind of rom are you making? CM? Stock based (Touchwiz, etc)? Other?

What do you get if you type su in the terminal?
