While we wait for a working recovery, is it possible to install SuperSU (not to xbin as Weaksauce did)?

This really should be in the Q/A forum but I believe you would need to push an insecure kernel before SuperSU will work without WeakSauce.

you need to first flash an insecure kernel which will grant /system write access. you can do this in fastboot... fastboot flash boot boot.img

Where you get the boot.img from?

I think a working recovery was just posted in the dev section.

Not as of 7:40. The TWRP posted does not boot. DO NOT FLASH the Sprint version alluded to there. That would be VERY bad

OOPS. Sorry see CWM is there now.

EDIT: that is not working yet either. I'd hold tight for a couple days and let the devs get these sorted out.

SuperSU installed with working recovery now in dev section.

Just curious, how can we flash .zips (including SuperSU) if we still have a secure boot.img?
