I flashed TWRP on my ZE551ML (Z00A-WW- and wanted to root a clean stock rom. I have successfully done so before on the same device by installing BETA-SuperSU-v2.67-20160121175247.zip downloaded from the official Chainfire site. I thought it would be better to have the newest version, so this time I tried to install SR1-SuperSU-v2.79-SR1-20161221223537.zip from the same source. However, after installing that file, the phone stayed in a bootloop for around 10 minutes.

  1. Is it normal for it to take that long, or does that mean that the second file is incompatible with my phone?
  2. Did I chose the wrong file, and should I have installed BETA-SuperSU-v2.67-20160121175247.zip instead?
  3. Which zip should I install?

I have uninstalled again, and my phone boots. What I am asking about here is which file to install.

  • I'm guessing this is a systemless thing... In TWRP go to terminal and enter "echo SYSTEMLESS=true>>/data/.supersu" press enter and reflash SuperSU, and reboot. – acejavelin Jan 1 '17 at 15:52
