    Okay folks this should simplify things a lil with rooting this huge huge update.... lol IMO if you're on a nice ROM stick to it, not much changed in 2.3.4, 2.3.5, or 2.3.6, mainly stuff you dont see or feel, etc. Sammy or metro might have tossed some eye candy in to o0o0o n aww you so you dont notice what they broke or took away. ;)

    This installs the current su binary and the Superuser.apk mrpnut had uploaded and proven to work by kidallstar & crew.

    Now this is real simple, have CWM installed, flash the the linked zip and reboot. ;)


    1. Download zip
    2. Copy zip to your sdcard
    3. Boot to CWMR
    4. Install zip from sdcard
    5. Select zip from sdcard
    6. Confirm
    7. Reboot
    People to thank

    Chainfire - for his Supersu binary and Superuser.apk, and for the zip itself. ;)
    koush - for his kickass recovery!!!!
    SuigintouLain - for his CWM build for ODIN.
    The Android Community - the reason we (Devs) do all this!! ;)

    No comment on the other one posted ;)

    But seriously, I just thought it would be simpler with the zip installing both files verses install app, flash a old binary, boot, update old binary. I also changed up and used Supersu by Chainfire, which allows you to use his supersu app or the Superuser most of you know. If you would like to read more about Chainfire's supersu click here.

    If they are any issues please let me know, so I can fix or correct them. ;)

    mine is not working with the superuser app are we suppose to be using supersu app?

    Installed supersu app and getting the following error message

    "there is no su binary installed"

    As far as I can tell when I install the root it goes thought no problem no errors.

    should the superuser app be visible in the app drawer after the install through cwm? because i don't see it, and i'm not rooted after following the steps in the op. it looks like the zip file installs in cwm without problems, but that's as far as my progress goes.

    i even tried the other members method out of desperation . . . still no dice.

    any suggestions?

    Guys, I've stickied this thread for you thanks to a kind heads-up from ShabbyPenguin (thank you, sir! :)) and I included a link to it in the all-things-root guide.

    Cheers all!

    will this auto install superuser or we suppose to down load superuser off the market?

    I am not sure what the above poster meant when he tried the new one
