Thanks Worked perfectly fine, i am now Rooted.
But i am back to Square 1 - LINK2SD is not working, it says its not supported by my device, because my device has a primary external storage which is emulated from the internal storage.

EDIT: I bought a Class 10 - 32 GB SD for the phone, so i can move big games to SD.

Thanks for the link but supersu reinstalled itself after reboot

I was just wondering does anyone experience the same thing-supersu wont update via play store..strange

1 yes flashing to root device with this file will trigger the flash counter which will indicate unofficial fw is installed after that samsung wont let you get ota updates

2 no but triangle away needs root to work

3 triangle away will reset the flash counter so you can get ota updates unfortunately on our device the counter goes back to 'unofficial' after a reboot

I don't understand why the phone can not update Superuser from Market. It happen to me too.
I just have NOTE on post #1.
I have to manual update, use Root Explorer rename the newest apk file to Superuser.apk and then set permision rw-r-r for it, after that move it to /system/app overwrite the old one.
