The SuperSU package is all you need to get in control of the root user account on the HTC Desire 825 smartphone. Once you have unlocked the bootloader and then got the custom recovery image installed, you can then flash the SuperSU manually from the custom recovery yourself. Doing so is one of the most common ways of becoming the root user and gaining control of the root user account so you can start installing any of the applications that require the root access before they can run.
The SuperSU is all your device needs to put you in control of the root user account where you then get to decide what apps are given root access. There are many apps out there that need this root access before they can run. Others rely on root access to enhance the features available to you when you run the apps.
- You need to have a custom recovery installed on the HTC Desire 825 smartphone before you may follow this guide that involves getting the SuperSU enabled.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- We advise that you do follow our instructions that involve downloading the SuperSU package to the computer before then transferring it onto the device because it is the safest way of getting it onto the device. We don’t recommend doing it directly from the device itself.
