Superuser: Work in progress

TL;DR: I need an icon

Some of you are probably wondering why I'm rewriting 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.

* Maintenance and updates on both the market and source repositories should be timely.

* I want to be able to point users of my app to a Superuser solution that I wrote, that I know works, and that I can fix if something is wrong. Yes, this is selfish: Carbon does not work with some versions of Chainsdd's Superuser. SuperSU works great, but I am not comfortable pointing a user to a closed source su implementation.

* Handle multiuser (4.2+) properly

* Handle concurrent su requests properly

It all works right now. The only thing left to do is access logs and policy management. That'll only take a day or so. I'll have a beta out shortly.


Screenshots below are what it looks like now on the N4, N7, and N10. I think I need an icon. Probably can't ship with trollface.
