android 8.0 su not working in terminal on Nexus 5x, ROOTed. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? ROOT-based apps work fine, but in terminal emulators when I try su I just get a stalling of the app.

  • Does adb shell su act the same? On a computer – esQmo_ Sep 2 '17 at 17:41
  • It works for adb shell surprisingly – I like to code Sep 2 '17 at 17:52
  • I've tried a few terminal emulators off the play store though, and none are working (that worked before on an older version of android) – I like to code Sep 2 '17 at 17:53
  • May be Google has made some changes. Does other commands work? – esQmo_ Sep 2 '17 at 18:23
  • From the phone's shell, what's the output of type su? From a computer, what's the output of adb shell type su? Does /system/bin/sh su freeze the shell as well? – Grimoire Sep 2 '17 at 20:36
