SuperSU updated with Android L preview compatibility

While the announcement of Android L has brought, or at least teased, several improvements for the platform, there are those that look at the next Android release with a sense of foreboding. Aside from Google potentially exercising more control over the OS' user interface direction, there are also fears about rooting becoming extremely difficult. Fortunately, SuperSU developer Chainfire's post-I/O report paints a less bleak picture.

OnePlus One plus TWRP equals possibilities

OnePlus' first smartphone caused a bit of a sensation, both in a good and in a bad way, but its utility has so far been quite limited. But now with an official TWRP recovery image available for the OnePlus One, the Android community will be able to gird their loins and finally put the smartphone to the custom ROM test.

Chainfire foresees rooting problems in upcoming Android 4.4.3

The creator of the popular SuperSU and CF-Auto-Root tools has been quite vocal about his concerns regarding changes in the Android Open Source Project that affect rooting on Android. Now that Android 4.4.3, or 4.5, could just be around the corner, Chainfire is raising some potential issues that could change or even break the way devs and users approach root access on Android.
