W.O.D. Run 1 mile, stop every minute and do 10 air squats, 10 pushups, and 10 sit-ups. Record your time and sets. I'll do mine after work, and record it here. Share your results if you want to join me.

How-To SU
Guidelines for problem-free su usage

I have released an article and sample code detailing the best ways to call su, as well as common problems and how to avoid them. If you are an app developer making su calls, this is meant for you to read.

It originates from a lot of reversing and going through code of root using apps that would randomly crash (either with SuperSU or Superuser) and working with a fair number of developers to solve these problems in their apps. The goal is to make all root app developers aware of these issues, so these problems will be avoided in new apps and updates to existing ones.

Please share this post and help getting all root apps to behave :)
Introduction. Since I started writing SuperSU, I have run into a lot of implementation problems. Problems with my own code in SuperSU, undocumented oddities in Android, and problems in other people's ...

No, I don't have that option....mine does most of it's stuff in a thread, that way the library doesn't block the thread it is in while it is working. Instead, I provide the option to specify a timeout, in which case the command will terminate and control will return to the thread from which it was executed in.

I did abstract the process.waitFor(), it's in the method called waitForFinish(), which does some other work as well. This method has an overloaded method which takes an int to specify the timeout you want to impose.

I tried very hard to handle almost all the exceptions I could, but some are thrown....in the case that a timeout occurs or something of the like an exception is thrown back up to the developer, at which time he can handle the exception however he chooses.

Been working on the preference screens for Superuser 3.1. Honeycomb and ICS get totally new screens, below that is the same for now, although I may make it more like the ICS phone version, still debating that though...

Let me know what you think.

All I gotta say is SU is a must have on my device! I even got the Elite version recently for the extra features and honestly, because your app is a MUST HAVE...period! Now my question is, is the new beta downloadable somewhere? Or still a work in progress?

+Renaud Lepage I saw your post, but you deleted it before I had a chance to comment...

I have a policy that applies to everybody, meaning if you can see this post, it applies to you. If you put the time, effort, and money into visiting me, I will put the time, effort, and money into ensuring that there's plenty of free beer :-) (no purchase necessary, advance notice required).

and BTW, >9000 is not a bug, it's a feature!
