    I know this is a common problem but still I can't find the solution. I've just rooted and SuperSU binary needs to be updated. It fails so I tried installing the update from Play but that just tells me it can't install the binary and I need to re-root and consult the relevant forums.

    So what do I do? I'm very scared of bricking. I'm a noob so please give advice as if helping a 5 year old!

    (I'm on 4.3 in the UK, Vodafone.)

    Haha! How could you forget me? I have to many damned problems!

    I'm on Android 4.3 (stock) and have no intention or using a custom ROM, I just want control over the one I have.

    I haven't flashed an updated SuperSU.zip because I don't know where to find it (and I'm scared of screwing up). I presume I just install the new one in the same manor as before?

    I don't know what I custom recovery is, so I probably don't have one!

    If you boot into recovery (by holding the vol up key, home key and power button simultaneously) you can work out if it is custom - because as far as I can remember, stock recovery doesn't have options for backup and restore. If you have these options, it is a custom recovery.

    Thank you! That's fixed that problem. Now on to the Tasker forum to find out why certain things are still unavailable...

    This is the s3 forum. But if binaries won't update you are not rooted.
