    Cm 11 latest stable. Get that error several times a day. Why is shell asking for SU? Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I've never used the command line on this device.. So I don't know why it wants SU rights...

    That's a problem with superuser on some devices. Is there anything you do to trigger it? I don't know now to fix that problem... I have it myself actually :/
    what you COULD try is use SuperSU as your root managing app. Or, you could wipe data, reflash your rom, or flash a new ROM entirely. If you press a certain key combination or try to do a certain task that triggers it, try to avoid it I suppose. Not much I can do to help though... sorry

    Yes all apps are showing allowed but it shows shell denied, here is a pic showing the denied, but i dont have a su app in my drawer or dwnlded from playstore, so how do i have super user unser my settings but no app, is it built in the cm rom? Before i reflashed everything and started fresh it asked which su you would like to use(wugs tool kit) and i picked chainfire i believe its named but not one su app in my drawer?

    It looks like CM has Superuser built in. Wugs copies over SuperSU (in the "!ready to Flash" folder), but you have to flash it (IIRC). Or, you can just install SuperSU from the Play store. Dirty Unicorns uses SuperUser, but I installed SuperSU as I like it much better and so do some apps like Titanium Backup.

    I know on my s3. With most kk roms weve had to flash a superSU update zip.
    I have the file but would it be universal and work on the n7?

    The SuperSu zip should work on any android device.

    Chainfires official page to grab the flashable SU zip is
    SuperSU Download

    yes before i had supersu on my n7,but for some odd reason,the only su i have is wat came with cm,and its under settings on the n7,when i used wugs it has the option to pick which one and what recovery,i picked supersu but not there,as long as it all works its fine,just dont understand why in the super user section it shows shell denied but everything else is not denied.

    ps anyone knows why when you go to the updates on the n7 for cm,it will never show any updates ,except what you have installed?
