Apps being denied? Disable the "Declared Permission" setting, and delete the "Deny" policies.

This app requires that you already have root, or a custom recovery image to work.

Apps not being remembered? Start the superuser app to make sure the su binary is up to date.

Features

* FREE
* Request timeout

Why another Superuser?

* Superuser should be open source. It's the gateway to root on your device. It must be open for independent security analysis. Obscurity (closed source) is not security.
* Superuser should be NDK buildable. No internal Android references.
* Superuser should also be AOSP buildable for those that want to embed it in their ROM.
* Superuser should also be AOSP embeddable, meaning a ROM can easily embed it into their Settings app.
* Maintenance and updates on both the market and source repositories should be timely.
* If something goes wrong, I can fix it.
* Handle multiuser (4.2+) properly
* Handle concurrent su requests properly
