Once SuperSU has downloaded, you can check to see whether root access is working properly by downloading Root Checker. Once downloaded, you can tap the ‘verify root status’ button in Root Checker and it’ll let you know if you’ve been successful. Make sure to accept the SuperSU permissions when asked for it.
