Chainfire's SuperSU App, one of the most popular "poweruser" tools for Android, which allows you to gain root access and manage root permissions for the apps that might need it, has just been updated with a substantial update. The most recent version of the app (v2.35), is the first full update ever since 2.01, which rolled out in the beginning of June.
SuperSU v2.35 is a substantial improvement of the app for several reasons. The most important one is the app's now fully compatible with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Chainfire reveals that it has been quite hard to find a viable workaround for hopping over the hurdles that Google has implemented in SELinux, along with everything else that prevented SuperSU from gaining root access. However, the app might still have issues with some of the early unofficial Lollipop builds that have surfaced for select Android warriors of late.
Apart from this, the user interface of the SuperSU app has been slightly refreshed in accordance with the Material Design guidelines. Chainfire says that he's made only slight imporvements over the previous layout, as the full adoption of Material Design is not "a top priority at the moment". But let's be frank here, folks the beauty of SuperSU does not lie in its interface, but in the under-the-hood features that it has in tow.
