But please make sure you first read the....

:: IMPORTANT WARNINGS

  • If you want to flash SuperSU, you MUST use at least version 2.72, which has support for ChromeOS boot images. Under no circumstances flash any version of SuperSU below 2.72!
  • Do not set the min CPU frequency below 204 MHz in Kernel Adiutor, etc. This will most likely not work properly and lead to unintended sideeffects like video/audio tearing up in playback and possibly random reboots. Before reporting any issues make sure you did not set the min CPU freq below 204 MHz

I am unencrypted and have flashed the boot.img multiple times but SuperSU isn't installed. I tried installing it manually and it says no binary installed.

Might be that you need the right SuperSU app installed. The su binaries, etc, are in the boot image, but whatever app you're using isn't looking in the right place. Maybe if you try indeed reflashing 2.66 in TWRP, SuperSU might detect that the kernel is already patched and just install the necessary app (I will test it all over after wiping my Pixel C clean).

You get force closes after uninstalling an app or trying to uninstall an app? Does it actually finish and only has that slight hiccup or does it further hamper things after uninstalling an app?

Boot into TWRP and wipe the cache (seriously this time!). That fixes it.

It crashes before it starts. I've tried the stock way and through Titanium Backup.

I'll try it again, getting tired of hearing that beep on the 30 second lockout screen

Edit: No dice still crashes

That fixed it for me, I'll take another look. (Yeah that 30 second boot lockout is very annoying.)

EDIT: It must have been a coincidence. I wiped the cache, and right after that I could uninstall apps. Now it's broken again, and wiping cache does NOT fix it. I'm looking into it.

I'm not sure TWRP is actually wiping cache properly. If I clear cache and dalvik cache it runs way too fast and I don't get the "Upgrading apps...." when booting.
