SuperSU is a permissions manager. It ensures that only authorized applications that you put on an allow list are allowed to use root permissions.

Without it, every app is running with root permissions. Which isn't a huge deal in a closed, airgapped environment like your head unit, but it's still a generally bad idea.

Busybox is a bunch of Linux utilities and isn't worth mentioning except when something needs it and its missing.
Ok so I installed SuperSu but am getting some errors. Installed, rebooted, then open SuperSu and get the error 'SU Binary Occupied' and now Honda Hack shows me an error 'failed to get root access'

EDIT: I uninstalled SuperSu from the in-app cleanup settings and that fixed the HH error.
I reinstalled SuperSu and made sure to be careful what I hit I think I fixed it. Let it normal binary install, then opened HH and it popped up asking for root access, so I granted it. I think I may have accidentally clicked out of that pop-up the first time.

I did it without supersu....just downloaded the viper4android apk and installed it and it works great

Yeah I did as well, I'm just trying out SuperSu for a piece of mind so I only grant root access to HH, but it seems not easy to set up ?

Please read my post. Nobody said it wouldn't work without SuperSU....


@IByrdl, I'm not sure what's going on with your install. I'd recommend completely resetting everything and wiping the head unit and starting over from scratch. That's the common suggestion in the Android world when something that fucky happens.
Whatever post I referenced when doing the install did! Didn't say yours specifically stated it was necessary my man.

So I replaced front & rear door speakers with JBL components. Installed Honda hack first then Viper4android (nothing else also). All works fine, incredible sound transformation from bluetooth phone audio!...but there's no way Viper4android works with the DAB radio?

its ok with just the Viper but I got the Audiocontrol DM-608 for better tuning, the DM-608 does sound alot better though, but the Viper does remove the bass roll off

Gonna bump the shit out of this.
.is it possible to install the latest version of viper4audio or do we absolutely have to use the autohack version?

There's even an unofficial 2.7 version out

Does anyone have tips on installing SuperSu? Do you do it through the browser or with a flash drive?

What is the best place to download it?

Thanks
