What's the diference between suaddon from lineage and supersu? do I need to flash both? or do I need to pick one?
SuperSU is a closed-source, proprietary superuser solution, and the other is LineageOS provided solution. There are other options as well, such as PHH Superuser. Choose one, they all essentially do the same thing.

addonsu-arm-signed.zip can't flash via recovery

addonsu-arm-signed.zip can't flash via recovery. Gives an error : Updater process ended with signal: 4
Phone : Samsung Galaxy S3 Int (i9300)
OS : lineage-14.1-20170125-nightly-i9300-signed
Recovery : TWRP 3.0.2-2

PS : When I got update-binary (META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary) from addonsu-arm64-signed.zip and replaced in addonsu-arm-signed.zip, I was able to flash it!

I'm a i9300 owner with the same problem. Could you please supply me with the working su-addon-arm. I couldn't manage to exchange the file in the zip-archive.
I appreciate your help!!!

is this something different than the "root" option in the developer settings? Since all apps that require root seem to work with just that setting.

EDIT: Okay, I've just read the reason: https://review.lineageos.org/#/c/154019

Disable SU by default

- We plan on distributing an addon for our SU
- Developers that want SU by default can export
WITH_SU=true to their env
- This helps with application compatibility for
various services, while maintaining user flexibility

since my device isn't officially supported yet the developer who uploaded the nightlies may have just enabled that by default.

    Here is my modified package, which I succeeded to flash : addonsu-arm-signed.zip.

    UPDATE :

    @farside268 Dude! Hi! I'm also have z00a and have the same problem, could you please upload your older version of this addon? Really, really thank you in advance!
    If anyone is in search of the first/original releases, of the LineageOS Addon-SU files, I still have them all archived on my File Host Account here:

    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=193272

    Since the time that CyanogenMod had disbanded and, LineageOS was established, i decided to archive certain items from LineageOS.

    PLEASE NOTE: I found out that when LineageOS released the updated Addon-SU files, it was not intended as an update for the first releases that worked for individuals but, for those who had experienced issues with the first release.

    As, purely, a Personal opinion... I think that individuals who wanted to flash the new Addon-SU, should have flashed the Addon-SU Uninstaller first, then reboot and flash the updated one.

    In addition, always keep the copy of BOTH the Addon-SU Installer AND uninstaller. This should actually go for any file that you use in order to prevent having to find them again.

    Like the saying goes (in a way)... If the first release worked, then why try to fix it with the second release.

    Just a friendly FYI for those who may not be aware of this... :)


    ***Please Note: As always, I welcome any member to help with further valuable information/clarification for any of my posts.
