    I was in a tunnel so I missed your posts :cool::thumbup:

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

    Use the new super Su apk settings to move to the new super Su apk so that will delete the old one and now your still rooted

    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

    Ok i am not trying to aggravate you but what does flash able in recovery mean? Does it mean I can put the phone in recovery mode and it will have an option then flash a new su really new at this trying my best to understand

    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?
