Root simply means you gain access to the core files of the Android OS on your smartphone. With root access, you can modify or make changes to the core system and make the most of your Android device by personalizing it. Chainfire, a recognized developer in the Android community, brought root to the Android devices with his super user concept. The SuperSU project now has come a long way with support to Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware as well as the latest v 6.0.1. Listed here are the latest SuperSU files that will help in rooting your Android device running on any of the Android OS greater than Android 4.4 KitKat- like the popular Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware. Here, you will see how to root Android devices running on Android Nougat, Marshmallow, Lollipop, and KitKat.

A simple way to root any Android devices would be to download latest SuperSU version and flash via TWRP. For that, you will need the TWRP recovery setup and also need to unlock the bootloader on your Android device. This method is applicable to many Android devices from most of the manufacturers like Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, Xiaomi, Huawei, YU, Motorola, and much more. Alternatively, you can simply install the SuperSU APK file from Google play Store and update the binaries, provided your device is compatible and have unlocked the bootloader as well.

    I’m already with CM 14.1 running on my OP3, can I just install SuperSU or do I have to redo the whole process?
