Chainfire releases major update to his SuperSU root app.

SuperSu, the popular rooting app by Chainfire, has been updated to version 2.35 and it brings along some noticeable changes. With Android Lollipop support and some Material Design elements, you can tell Chainfire has been hard at work.

When Lollipop  was first released to developers, it soon became clear that the usual rooting methods that were used for KitKat were not going to work this time around. Android 5.0 came with patched loopholes and updated SELinux policies that made the older rooting methods null. SuperSu had support for Lollipop in the beta version where Chainfire states that he had to completely keep reworking the various rooting methods as newer developer previews kept coming out. Now it seems that Chainfire has deemed it stable enough to roll out to the masses and he also found some time to add some Material Design elements to the app. He does state that the UI is not his main priority right now so it may be a while before we see it fully updated to Lollipops UI guidelines.

You can find more information regarding the update by following the link provided and by heading over to the Play Store and updating the app using the widget below.
