    A new version of Superuser, version 3.0 is now available, and it brings with it some major changes, including bug fixes and a host of great new features. Here's are some of the changes:
    • Fixed layout on non-Honeycomb tablets
    • Better handling of fragments on tablets
    • Compatibility for Donut restored
    • Fixed bug that caused unpredictable results when an app is remembered that was previously allowed
    • Backup/restore of apps and preferences
    • Fix for Superuser thinking the binary is outdated when it’s not
    • Major speed increase for notifications and logging
    • Show seconds in log defaults to off now
    • Fix FC when trying to swipe left/right in HomeActivity
    • Fix changelog version tracking, only show what’s changed since the last time the changelog was displayed on launch
    • NFC Tag Writing
    • PIN Lock (available with Superuser Elite)
    • App BackUp
    • Automatic malware scanner
    If you haven't tried it yet, Superuser is free in the Android Market, and for only $3 dollars you can get the Superuser Elite version there too with some added functionality and features.

    Ok, downloaded the new version, and it says that my SU binary is out of date, as expected. However, even after a reboot, when I try to update the binary, it fails every time at the "copying su to /system" step.
    How can I fix this?
