Which one is better for our phones? Are there particular ROMs which run better with one or the other?

All I know is that Superuser development has been put on halt while SuperSU development is still going.

Its more universal, I prefer it over super user because of that and the fact that the pop up actually matches my blue theme unlike the green super user
Its all about preference

I prefer the good old Superuser over the SuperSU app.
One reason is that it seems more reliable. The other reason I prefer it is because I purchased Superuser Elite for the PIN security and backup/restore options, and it doesn't transfer over to SuperSU.

Perfer SuperSU because I haven't seen chainfire release a broken update yet. Every time chainsdd releases a Superuser update, he spends the next few days trying to release fixes it for all of the phone he broke with the update.

Like most people, I prefer not to change.

I keep my rezound very close to stock.
S-off, htcdev unlocked, stock hboot, stock recovery, stock operating system, and rooted.
If not expecting an OTA maybe flash a custom recovery.

Those of you who ROM, use whichever one your Rom includes. For me, I needed to install one or the other Su zip file myself.


Well with HTC ics, the latest version of SuperUser would not work.

http://androidsu.com/superuser/

So my choice was to use an old version of SuperUser, or try the newer SuperSU.

http://download.chainfire.eu/204/SuperSU/

So, I used the latest SuperSU zip file and flashed it using a custom recovery like TWRP.

It works ok.

Regards

Howard
