Google released Android O Developer Preview 3 on Thursday. Also there is another good news for Nexus and Pixel Users that the most popular third-party superuser management tools, SuperSU, has released a new version that will work with at least some of the devices that officially support Android O.
Chainfire, who are the developers of SuperSU, announced his plans to support Android O in a Twitter post Thursday. He stated he had SuperSU working with the Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P and the Pixel XL phones from Google.
Got SuperSU working with ODP3 on 5X, 6P and Pixel XL. Only two lines needed changes from the SR1 I was going to release. Soon!
