All code changes needed for N Preview have been rolled into the BETA releases starting v2.71 BETA. This thread is now closed. If a new N Preview release comes out, or N Final is released, this thread may be re-opened. For now, proceed to the BETA thread!

OLD CONTENT

This thread is dedicated to SuperSU on N Preview. With the first few releases I'm not merging it directly with the BETA branch, as there have been some invasive changes under the hood regarding SELinux handling, and there should be a little bit more testing done before going there. Still, I expect this to be done within the next week or two.

I've only had the chance to test on the 5X so far, so there is some risk involved. If you're not comfortable reflashing everything due to bootloops, crashes, etc, wait for others to play the guinea pig.

RC-SuperSU-v2.70-20160314191951.zip

As this hasn't been merged with the BETA branch yet, I'm not updating the main CF-Auto-Root distribution either. But as TWRP isn't working yet on all N Preview devices either, attached are test CFAR versions.

Note that you are also welcome to flash this SuperSU version on pre-N firmwares, and report back if everything still works as expected.

If you have tried other methods of rooting, you need to at least flash back your stock boot.img before flashing SuperSU.
Depending on how much you have played around, reflashing /system may also be a wise move.

If you came from SuperSU v2.69, you need to reflash via TWRP or CFAR. Installing just the APK and updating binaries will not fix all the issues!

Thank you @Chainfire! Does this root method reside in the System Partition, or is it Systemless. Also, do we need to type in adb commands in TWRP before installing to force Systemless installation?
Thank you again:laugh:

Hey Chainfire!

Just a few question again from one of your supporters:p
Is it possible to receive OTA's after rooting N with your method? Or is their another way (like for example via your app "Flashfire")?
And can you flash new preview builds over a rooted build?

Thank you in advance :)

Android N OTA`s - it`s full system images, so it doesn't matter your device rooted or not.

How are ya'll flashing? I can't get any version of TWRP to run on my N9, it just keeps restarting recovery, and I don't know what else I would try.
unzip and run root-windows.bat, or mac or linux sh file, depends on you OS.

Can i flash it over phh cause i already root?
