Post [HOW TO] Change superuser to SuperSU before flashing ROM.zip

I tried a long time to find it out but now it works:

first of all make a NANDROID-Backup

1. Download CWM / TWRP / MobileODIN installable ZIP from HERE
2. unpack the zip-file
3. open flashable .zip of the ROM you like (do not extract - just open it) with winrar or 7zip
4. copy "superuser.apk" from upacked zip-file (point 1. and 2.) from the commom-folder to /system/app in opened ROM
5. copy the binary "su" from unpacked zip-file (point 1. and 2.) from the arm-folder to /system/xbin
6. close winrar or 7zip
7. copy ROM.zip to your device
8. flash ROM via TWRP or CWM

anyway im not responsible for any bricks or problems. It works by me, so try it or let it be
