In my testing I try to switch to the SuperSU. Because it’s my favorite Android super user permission manager tool. However, once I installed SuperSU it failed to update its SU binary. Looks like King SU doesn’t allow full root permission to the SuperSU. So keeping your mind that at this moment, it’s hard to switch to another super user app.
