Substratum, Andromeda, Root?

Hi, I would like to run Substratum on my phone (Xiaomi Mi5 on LineageOS 15.1 - Android 8.0.1 - rooted) but its slightly confusing.
I downloaded Substratum, but after opening it tells me to install Andromeda. What is the purpose of Andromeda? As far as I understand it is needed if the phone is unrooted? DO I have to buy the ap for running substratum on my rooted phone?
Thank you!

Edit: After severeal attempts in reinstalling the app it now works!
