How to use

    Quote:
    • Uninstall BlueStacks.
    .

    • Make sure USB-debugging is enabled
    • Make sure no Sony PC Companion or other Sony software is running
    • Make sure you have adb drivers installed (Example)

    • Yes. You 'might' have to reinstall SuperSU though (depending on the installation method).

Did you use the SuperSU from market? Because it's a known issue this SuperSU can not update binary. Use latest one from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/Sup...SU-v1.99r4.zip

What do you mean? Did you check with Root check app? What is the output of install.bat?
