- No need to wait to download and extract a 500MB system.img. Instead, download a 5MB .zip file
- No need to do a fresh install. You can root an existing installation without removing all your data.
- Play store and Google Calendar sync work
Tested and works with:
- v2.2.0 64-bit
- v2.2.1 64-bit
- v2.5.0 64-bit
- v220.127.116.11 64-bit
- v18.104.22.1688 64-bit (Tested myself)
- (Probably works on your system too. Why not test it and post your results below?)
- Download and extract the .zip file. For the purposes of the tutorial, I'm going to assume that you extract it in the Download folder and rename the SuperSU folder to su. Inside su, you should see META-INF, x64, x86, etc folders.
- Open the terminal by pressing Alt+F1
- If you have Phoenix OS 32-bit, type in these commands:
cd /system/xbin mv su su.orig cp /sdcard/Download/su/x86/su.pie su chmod 4751 su su --install su --daemon
- If you have Phoenix OS 64-bit, type in these commands:
cd /system/xbin mv su su.orig cp /sdcard/Download/su/x64/su . chmod 4751 su su --install su --daemon
If after typing in the mv su su.orig command, you get an error saying:
mv: rename su to su.orig: No such file or directory
I usually install my Phoenix OS using the .exe installer and always see the su file in that folder during the rooting process so I never see this error. It was never clear to me why people are missing the su binary, but my observations tell me it could be because people are installing it using the ISO file or using 32-bit. I never had the opportunity to test this out, but if you have this error, please post your Phoenix OS version, architecture, and installation method.
Make sure you type in the commands exactly as provided. I saw other people were having trouble because they typed in the command incorrectly; they were missing a period after a space. It should be with a period and a space after the command (if you're rooting x64):
cp /sdcard/Download/su/x64/su .
cp /sdcard/Download/su/x64/su /system/xbin
- Close the console by pressing Alt+F7. (If you have trouble exiting the console, post below with your Phoenix OS version and architecture. Then, try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7)
- Phoenix OS might crash and restart. Using the File Manager, go to the Download folder. Navigate to su>common> and install Superuser.apk
- Launch SuperSU app from the app drawer. Press Continue, then select Normal to update the binary normally. Exit out of the app after the update is successful.
- Launch Security app from the app drawer. Click AutoRun.
- Toggle SuperSU to enable it so that it can automatically run when other apps request Superuser access. Exit out of the app.
- Added notes for common errors people were having
- Added another keystroke to exit console (Ctrl+Alt+F7)
- Added screenshots. Removed unnecessary steps. Fixed grammar mistakes.
