    The Android N Developer preview has only been out for a few weeks. Of course Chainfire had it rooted in a matter or hours, but it seems that many root users are having problems with specific root apps. Chainfire has offered his explanation of why.

    According to Chainfire the reason these problems are occurring is Android's recent shift away from "toolbox" and towards "toybox". They have been heading in this direction since Marshmallow and have officially removed toolbox mount support.

    It seems Root apps on Android N will be broken until developers of root apps go into the apps and fix the failing command issue. Chainfire has done due diligence to get some of these apps working with a fix inside of SuperSU. Head to the link below for a more in depth explanation.
