    2. I did this, and the app supersuser was dissapear, but still install the app SuperSu and I can´use it, it says " There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSu cannot install it. This is a problem! ".

    3. 'SU binary is not installed' it means that your phone is Unrooted..

      Just uninstall the superuser app normally and everything else is fine. If you want to root your phone again than you can do that using our tutorial :)

    4. I can´t unistall the SuperSu app, i don´t have this options in the app adminsitration menu, i have the options "Force close" and " Cancel", it sees like a system app.
