SuperSU is a superuser manager app by developer Chainfire, which manages root permissions on your device once it’s rooted. And thankfully, Chainfire has also created a recovery flashable zip file for SuperSU which contains the SuperSU app and the binaries required to get root access. What this means is you can flash the SuperSU zip via a custom recovery and get root access on any Android device.

- In order to root Android using SuperSUzip, you must first enable OEM unlocking and unlock the phone’s bootloader. (If your newer device has)
- You must also install TWRP recovery on your Android device.
