    I frozon chinese version and installed super su. When I start the application, I have following prompt
    “The Su binary needs to be updated. continue ?

    than I click on continue.

    next prompt is….

    “If you have a custom recovery like TWRP OR CWM, that can be used to(try to) install the su binary. This is recommended for htc devices. How wouldyou like to install the su binary ?”

    two options are TWRP/CWM and Normal. Which one I should select ?

    • Select Normal option and proceed.

      • chetan patel

        I selected normal option. but the process ended with prompt “Installation failed.”

        Another thing to note. I have installed root checker. When I checked using it, it says that

        SU not found
        Root Access no access

        But titanium Backup says the root access is yes.

        Should I root it again ?

        • Try to un-root your device using Vroot and root it again and then install Titanium Backup and freeze the chinese version of Superuser app and then install English version of Superuser and update binaries and check for root permissions using Root Checker App.
