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 ...

+Jorrit Jongma I agree that IntentService is a simple and easy solution, it doesn't block the UI thread and makes sure that only one job is running at a time. But as soon as you need something different 2 months later then you're running into troubles. With a service you have all the extra efforts like creating a new thread and make sure your service is stopped properly, handle multiple calls to it, but you have more control.

+Stephen Erickson IMO the UI thread should not be blocked at all. Even if it's only 1 second, it's still enough to break the app's usability and make it appear sluggish. That's not the fault of your library but the developer could fall for it easily.

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!
