    Superuser just keeps track of which apps can use su (which is what rooting is - running su so the app gets root access). Since installing an app doesn't require root, the installer doesn't run su, so Superuser isn't called, so it has nothing to do with it.

    If the message is "App can not be installed in the default location", check to make sure that you have at least 300MB of free app storage space. Android uses some of that space, and won't let you use so much of it that Android doesn't have enough left to use. Since the device has only 4GB of total space, you can't install very many apps. It was barely large enough for minimal use 18 months ago, it's not large enough to load with apps now. (Apps tend to get larger as more functions are added, and as "developers" get more sloppy. 4GB used to be tons of space - back in 2011. Today that's considered a device that should be retired and kept as a spare emergency phone.)
