    Default superuser vs. superSU

    i flashed a rom, omni rom, but lost root after. the rom is a "nightly", and uses an over the air update process called opendelta, whereby the nightly update can be done simply by the push of the ok button.

    on my sd "card is now a folder called "flashafterupdate". i want to put a superuse zip file in there to re-obtain root after each nightly.

    my specific question: what is the difference between the 2 superusers? and if anyone can post a link where i can get the latest zip file, i'd appreciate it. i've downloaded a few, but am a bit unsure.

    nexus 7, omni rom is 4.4.2 based.

    superuser has been abandoned and there wont have any further development/update

    superSU is still actively developed and supported

    I wish I could go into the differences between the different SuperUser apps, but essentially I believe it's just a matter of which developer created it.

    I don't know if your ROM dev recommends a certain superuser app over another, but I pretty much use SuperSU exclusively, since it's always worked for me.

    Here is the XDA thread for SuperSU:
    The download link for the latest version of the ZIP file is included in that thread, which is:

    EDIT: And I guess this is the answer to the first part of your question, thanks to Still1:

    thanks folks. i did go to the superuser developer's site, and noticed the blog was quite old. you'd think he'd put a note in there that there would be no further updates. i mean the download link still works. it all makes sense now.

    superuser from ClockworkMod (not from chainsdd) it's actively developed, and it's open source. It's the one included in CyanogenMod.



    From ClockworkMod:

    Why another Superuser?
    * Superuser should be open source. It's the gateway to root on your device. It must be open for independent security analysis. Obscurity (closed source) is not security.
    * Superuser should be NDK buildable. No internal Android references.
    * Superuser should also be AOSP buildable for those that want to embed it in their ROM.
    * Superuser should also be AOSP embeddable, meaning a ROM can easily embed it into their Settings app.
    * Maintenance and updates on both the market and source repositories should be timely.
    * If something goes wrong, I can fix it.
    * Handle multiuser (4.2+) properly
    * Handle concurrent su requests properly
