Android users frequently root their devices in order to unlock the privilege of installing root apps, custom kernels and ROMs, to fix issues like lag in performance, battery drain and customize parts of the UI may sometimes notice a weird error message that says: “Unfortunately SuperSU has Stopped” on their rooted phones.
