    Did you recently install an update to your SuperUser app, and are you using SuperSU?

    When you get that message, do you see something that looks like this:

    Attachment 64963

    If so, you need to uncheck the box that says "Ask Again."

    No I haven't installed any updates to super user and I'm not using supersu. What's weird is that I don't get that box with the option not to ask again. I guess because it's not really an app requesting permission. It's more of an internal system thing. In the super user app it doesn't show "shell" as one of the apps, but it definitely is in the "log" where it shows that it was granted permission in a repetitive way.

    same situation here... No app called Shell to deny, and it usually happens when the phone freezes for a minute or two. I updated the su binary in superuser from 3.1 to 3.1.1 today and it made no difference. Still locks up once every few hours. Haven't found a conclusive solution yet...

    Oh, and the phone is a Samsung Galaxy s3 rooted stock.

    ETA. Forgot to mention, mine seems to be triggered by one particular folder in my gallery, specifically the folder that holds all the camera photos. Any of the folders in the gallery work fine, but the camera folder seems to be the sticker for some strange reason...

    Have the same problem. It seems that when I adjust the volume with the buttons on the side of the phone it goes a bit crazy and shows that message repeatedly and sometimes the phone will randomly vibrate when it does this as well. The phone freezes as well.
    anyone found a solution?

    I just made an account to respond 'shell has been granted Superuser permissions' a result of Bug Report - xda-developers freeze or rename this file
    Appreciate your help, but I can't figure out which file to rename.

    In my case this problem was solved by renaming /system/bin/dumpstate and /system/bin/bugmailer.sh
    At first I only renamed bugmailer.sh, but this didn't solve it. Then I noticed there were no screenshots on my sdcard so I tried renaming dumpstate, which solved the problem.

    I changed superuser apps from Superuser to SuperSU, that got rid of the messages as well.

    It would help to remember that android is a gui, that runs on top of linux, which is a clone of the Unix command shell. When you grant su perms to it, you are simply granting it to the linux system running underneath android.

    I found the answer to this issue on another forum. If you press volume up + down + power inadvertently, this is the key combination to send a bug report, which also is what causes the superuser permissions to be required/given to shell. Normally this would all be silent in the background, but because you have root and a su app, the messages are all generated and logged, causing the temporary slowdown.

    Hope that helps!

    I just solve the problem.
    In my side, I find that it was a background process of Viber. which want root permission, it can be a bug from Viber. May be first time I allow that access, I dont remember, as a result there is no way to block this from 'Super User'. Because Superuser dont show any allowed app for that.

    So I Unroot and Root again using Frameroot then restart and the bug (something that) want to allow the root access (SuperUser Asked me), I dont allow that and check the remember button. thats it.

    Open SuperSU. Click on each app listed and make sure none of the Notification boxes are marked as "Enabled" ... They should either be Global default or Disabled. For me it was Nova Launcher asking for root permission constantly and notifying me of it every goddam time.

    Everyone, you are making your solutions far too complicated. If you have a rooted phone just open the SuperSU APP by ChainfireSU the only SU app you should ever use, scroll down to allow toast notifications and uncheck it! That simple! No more notifications about such and such has gained permissions to an interactive shell!!! Problem solved!
