The device won't brick. It should uninstall the old su, but if not you just uninstall it

OK some devices if u are at the point where u was your device will either lose root or just boot loop this would be known as a brick. Now you was saved . now you open the settings menu on the super Su app. Scroll down to the setting and you will see a option or you can let it do it on its own just read the pop ups

Yes, flashable from recovery means just that: you can flash it (install it) using a custom recovery.

Ok i am sorry guys i am trying to get this correct in my head before i apply it to the phone again a user installs a custom recovery this means that the user is able to then add or remove such things like the rom or in my case the super su app? Correct me please If I am wrong but that would mean all I have to flash is the super su app? Not the recovery itself just the su app? Then the new su binary should have been installed giving me root?
