For those having problem of updating Super SU binary after flashing rom [ROM][ARC/S][.587]JELLY SANDWICH 6.0 STABLE[22-09][Aroma][Uploaded] or any other rom that have the same problem.I found a way to fix it..

1. first try update binary using Super SU for few times, if still installation failed try to download old superuser through play store.
2. Disable superuser for Super SU in settings>Superuser
3. In old superuser, go to info and then tap the "tap to check updates" and update the binary.
4. Then, enable superuser in Super SU and voilaa!!... try it..

Hello, My HTC Desire has

MIUI Android v. 4.1.1
Kernel v. 2.6.38.8
Build nr.2.8.17 MIUI

I am trying the above unsuccesfuly

SuperSU 0.96 will say Installation failed when trying to update (tried several times)
I then disabled as advised and I get a message that uninstallation failed (even if the button is then in the off position)
I install the old superuser, I tap to check updates and I get the following errors:
1. The checked version is 3.0 rather than 3.1.1 (which I think it's not an error since I am using an older version)
2. Everything is OK until is trying to Copying su to system... fail!

Any ideea why?

Thank you!

P.S. Nevermind, I found SU update FIX on googleplay and it did the job.

Thanks a bunch! That worked for me on an Android tablet with stock ROM. I had the same problem.

Thanks a ton for this fix! I was about to throw my phone out of the window but you saved its life.
In step 2. I think it's easier to say: Open SuperSU and deny root access on the Superuser prompt.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing (destructive).
I just say this because I couldn't find an option to add a denied application in Superuser. Maybe I didn't search too hard...
This works with Xperia-ICS v2i ROM port (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1855768).

Thumbs up Issue Resolved :"Supersu binary failed"
Amigos,

Who is having issue of SuperSU Binary update than they should download the attachment which is an update for SuperSU & install or flash it through "Recovery mode" & reboot. It takes while to get up your device but it works for me.

Cheers.

This is what worked for me:
1. Install Superuser by ChainsDD.
2. Install SuperSU.
3. When the Superuser prompt comes up, click allow.
4. Update the binaries.
