We all like to root our Android smartphone so we can modify it the way we want. Some modifications include installing Titanium Backup, Xposed and flashing various custom ROMs. Once we root the device, we need a SuperUser that manages root permissions. You might be familiar with SuperSU, a screen popups which prompts you to either allow or deny the app for root access.
There are some apps like Google Tez, Snapchat and some internet banking apps that doesn’t work on rooted device. If you ever tried installing these then a warning message might have flashed. So what you should do? You will either have have to compromise on these apps or root access. What if you could install Snapchat and still have root access? You read it right, earlier SuperSU was used to manage root permissions. But now with Magisk its possible to install Tez and Snapchat even on rooted android device.
- Your device must be free from root. In case its already rooted, do a full unroot from SuperSU app. Different smartphones have different methods to root, but unrooting can be done from SuperSU app itself. If it doesn’t work, just flash stock boot.img of stock ROM.
