That's what I have. Its the most current version to my knowledge. Are you having another issue that you feel is caused by an outdated binary?
You went to settings for the SU app and set a p.i.n. and checked notifications, and set "prompt" when an app requests permission right? SU app has to request and be given permission to work properly.

It should be rwsrwxrwx. That is exactly what mine has. Have you checked root with Root Checker?
Edit- I had an issue with updating the binary, til I got Elite which allows you to get Superuser3. He never tells you how to get it, but, using Ghost mode triggers Play store to send you a notice for it.

Legacy, I believe, is the chainfire binary. It's outdated as far as new systems are concerned.

Try this binary It comes from Chainsdd, so it will work with Superuser.

Did you unzip the file? The binary should be inside it.

there are two folders, META-INF and system. Inside system is a bin folder and in there is the su binary. Copy that to the same folder as adb and push it in.
