Who, What Why ?

As you may know, I make a lot of apps that use or require root. I also release rooted kernels. I run into a lot of issues with existing Superuser tools. More importantly, a lot of my users run into these issues as well and then email me about it. So I decided to do something about this. Doesn't mean these were problems you have ever seen, or will ever see.
And thus, I have written - pretty much from scratch - SuperSU. I have taken the su binary command line parameter parsing from Superuser, to make sure that is compatible. Aside from that, it is completely rewritten, because how I wanted to do a number of things was incompatible with the existing codebase.
This is not a stab at ChainsDD, or his skills. He has done great work and will no doubt continue to do so, however, I felt the need for some of these changes, and thus made them. This is an early release, so I expect there will be some unforseen issues somewhere.
From now on, all CF-Root and Mobile ODIN Pro (EverRoot) releases will be built around SuperSU.
Please note that SuperSU is not hardened-security-tested or reviewed, and may be exploitable (... as may other solutions ...).
: Pro is key only, you need to install lite version first.
If you install from market, you will have two superuser, remove older one with system appl remover, or any other application can perform same job.
Remember, if you remove older first without installing newer one, you will lose Root n newer won't run.
One more thing market version will be regular application, so hard reset can delete it. So better install with flashable zip, to make it system application.
