I recently updated my SuperSU to 2.79. Titanium Backup has stopped working since then. I've tried reinstalling it and clearing data and cache too.

Strangely, it is trying to obtain SuperUser permission from a script in the location:


when I try to execute it using Android Terminal, it throws a Syntax Error.

Any help will be appreciated.

    Super Su 2.79 is systemless root. This does not modify the /system to give root powers but modifies boot partition. I have a similar root and this sometimes doesn't go well with TiBu. The workaround for me was to go to SU settings and toggle mount namespace separation ( in my case it should be unchecked). Reboot and try TiBu again . Let me know if this solves

  • Yeah I was wondering it could be because of the systemless issue. And no toggling it didn't work. Commented Jan 15, 2017 at 15:20
  • Did you Reboot? If that also doesn't work try uninstalling and reinstalling TiBu with toggling

  • @beeshyams yes. I think I'll downgrade SuperSU to 2.64 Commented Jan 15, 2017 at 15:21
  • Systemless root Had it's own advantage. If you care for that, try going to earlier version of Tibu
