Fixed It
On my Moto X, I was eventually able to boot into fastboot by repeatedly pressing the volume down button at a rate of about twice per second. (Holding it down or any other method would not lead to fastboot.)

Once in fastboot I booted into TWRP and restored a full backup from a few months ago and it worked.

I updated everything except SuperSU, used it for a few days to make sure it was the way I wanted it, then backed up through TWRP.

I was able to fix my problem by using unSU. I haven't rerooted yet, but that part is pretty straightforward. Hopefully, this helps someone else.

Please help me.... I assume I have installed updated to that infamous 2.80 few days ago...installed a binary and all that. Today, I rebooted my phone and got stuck in bootloop....only advice I found on thread was to flash 2.79 zip...so I went into recovery, cleared cache and dalvik and flashed it, but the phone is still bootlooping. I disabled xposed, assuming it might help(used a zip for disabling it which apparently makes a disabled file in xposed's folder...) but that didn't help either. I really need to fix this... Anyways, I am using Sony Xperia Z1 Compact with dual recovery(PhilZ Touch 6.59.0, ClockworkMod v6.0.5.1 an TWRP v.2.8.7.0), locked bootloader cause I can't unlock it on this one... I hope somebody can guide me through this and help soon....

Try osm0sis' unsu script. If that fixes your bootloop, you'll be unrooted. Then go back to what had worked. I'd suggest you turn off auto update in the play store for SuperSu.

Edit: You need to flash that file I linked to in recovery. I usually link to the thread

I would also suggest you search the stable and beta threads for your device.

Actually, I have managed to fix it and the solution was a lot simpler than expected, I simply flashed THIS version of 2.79. @Chainfire linked this version in official post: https://download.chainfire.eu/1021/S...0114223742.zip and it seems to be different, I've seen other people reporting that this one does not fix the issue while the one on the official supersu site does...Might help some other people too...

Moto X 2013 Optimizing
I'm currently running SuperSU 2.79 since all of my attempts to upgrade binary and APK to 2.82 resulted in all apps optimizing at every boot.

I'm curious what the status is on this bug, which has already been reported by others.

Until this is fixed I intend to stay with 2.79, but on I every boot I get "The SU binary needs to be updated!" message. Is there a way to suppress this message?

Thanks!
Spencer
