Superuser App Gets Refreshed

So XDA forum member ChainsDD decided it was time the original superuser app written back in 2008 got a new look and some new features.

Originally written by XDA member Koush, the Superuser app allows specified applications to get root when authorised. The program works with any application that uses su – no special code or support needs to be written.

ChainsDD has given the Superuser app a complete refresh making it more easy to read showing each permission by it’s name rather than it’s UID.

Originally posted by ChainsDD:

  • Many translations (Spanish, German, Czech, Greek, French, Italian, Dutch and Danish).
  • Optional notifications.
  • A dialog that shows details of each permission including access times.
  • A much clearer request window.
  • Permission are removed when an app is uninstalled to prevent another app from possibly getting permissions you don’t want it to have.
  • A bunch of work behind the scenes to smooth things out.

There are 4 versions covering Cupcake, Donut and Eclair Android builds and ROM types.

To download and for more information, check out the application thread.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
