Can someone please help me find the correct SU binary for this device? I am trying to install the SU binary for SuperSU, and I get an installation failed every time.

I have been looking for information on this specific problem, and from what I have read, I may have to download a new binary file and download it through flash recovery (shrug). I thought I would try that, but I cannot find anywhere with information specific to my device.

If you think the problem could be caused by something else, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

    I updated SuperSu from the google play store, and now I am getting the following error: "There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it." This seems to confirm that I do need to install the SU binary for my device version, but I still not found where I can find the SU binary. Commented Feb 12, 2014 at 15:57

You should be able to download the latest SuperSU from Chainfire. Push that to your Nexus 7 using adb push and install it from your custom recovery. I'm guessing you have that already?

    Yes, I just installed "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip", and I am still having the same problem. Commented Feb 12, 2014 at 17:15
  • Do you have a terminal emulator on your device?

After having the 'no SuperSU Binary' error message I followed this guide : How to Root Nexus 7 2012 (Wi-Fi) and Nexus 10 on Stock Android 5.0 Lollipop via CF Auto Root that worked after several attempts. most importantly I had to be in the stock rom ( lollipop) then run the root-windows command. then while it says "waiting for device", I the switched tablet off, then vol down+power to go into bootloader. Then the magic happened.

hope this helps
