  • Hi
    I need Super Su pack for Samsung grand prime SM G531 H plz help me Thanks



  • For the first question to How to Root, part of the answer is

    REPLACE THE SU BINARY FILE -

    Can you elaborate on this:
    Existing "active" to be replaced: The "active" SU Binary is in \system\xbin
    The replacement of the active file: where do the find the SU Binary with which to replace that one?

    Similarly on this instruction:

    http://www.supersu.com/faq/insteadbinaryfile/
    Method 2: replace system/ Xbin with SU file, Steps
    Step 1: Install Root.Explorer APK.
    Step 2: Rename Su to .SU
    Step 3: Copy .SU to system/xbin
    Step 4: Authorize Su (chmod 0777 .su)
    Step 5: delete the other SU files, such as ksu, etc.
    Step 6: Rename.SU to SU
    Step 7: Go back to the desktop to delete the other authorization apps

    For Step 2 Where is this Su file? I found one in system/ Xbin - but that doesn't seem to make sense that I would be renaming and then copying a file to the same directory.
    For Step 4: Authorize Su (chmod 0777 .su) - is the following correct: Authorize .SU (chmod 0777 .su)

    Note: Because I have an updated Samsung Galaxy S5, which I have rooted, however the bootloader is still locked. Therefore, I have to use SuperSU APK Installation method, because the SuperSU installation via Recovery requires an unlocked bootloader.

    @Breen is your bootloader locked by carrier? If not, I assume S5 can be unlocked by Odin or certain ADB tool on PC
