My new thread after a loooooong time :) Finally I won my laziness to write something.

What is TinySU?
TinySU is a tiny alternative for @Chainfire's SuperSU or @phhusson's SuperUser or @topjohnwu's MagiskSU.

Why TinySU?
My S7 is a Sprint SM-G930P flashed to Nougat G930U firmware. I found the root guide using @JUSMEJOSE' s Engineering kernel and @jrkruse's SuperSU v2.82 install script. So far so good.

However after a short time using it I see lots of lags. Apps were constantly killed after switching. Starting new apps takes a while. I tried to unroot yet keep the engineering kernel (i.e. removal of SuperSU disk image, daemon launching script...) and the lags are gone. So I decided to write my own root app with tininess in mind :)

TinySU is
  • tiny
  • no library dependent
  • fast and smooth
  • not compatible with SELinux

Enough. How to use it for my G930U?
(Many links are shamelessly copied from @Araltd's root tutorial)

  1. Download and install Samsung USB drivers.
  2. Use @princecomsy 's Odin to flash @JUSMEJOSE' s Engineering kernel.
  3. Enable USB debugging, if not yet done.
  4. Download and extract my SM-G930U repo on GitHub.
  5. Use my TinySU install script, located at the extracted directory/Install-TinySU/tinysu-root.bat

So what won't work using TinySU that would work using SuperSU?

(Also great job and thank you!)

This root should work on other firmwares as well. However, I don't have other devices so couldn't test.

Try with your own risk :)

Does TinySu support the SM-G935U? Hope you will try it root other ways some lag and hot.

TinySu không biết có hỗ trợ cho SM-G935U không nhỉ .? hi vọng bạn sẽ thử nó . root những cách khác lag và nóng máy lắm
