Chainfire SuperSU root app updated for Android L preview

Android L

The Android L preview is as easy to root as you’d expect, but for those who prefer one-click solutions it hasn’t been happy days. Thankfully Chainfire’s SuperSU app has quickly been updated to bring proper support for Android L. Not only does the app manage superuser access properly, it also has built-in autoroot functionality for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013.
