There was a custom recovery called ClockworkMod. It was developed for Android. Using that custom recovery Users able to flash the Superuser. Using superuser android users was satisfied with the path which it can easily root the android phone. Superuser developed by KOUSH. ClockworkMod and Superuser were developed by Chainfire. In the Android world he recognizes as root-god.

Secondly, we move on to The fame of SuperSU:

Google trying to more care about android security. They Started their next journey to give more secure with android,  from the Lollipop version. When Google turns into the marshmallow, it defaultly restricts the rooting android phones. Some rooting methods blemish the security of Android it causes to these default restrictions. Then our root-god develops and updates the SuperSU system that can deal with the newest Android OS.

SuperSU acquired by a Chinese Company and Google introduced SafetyNet.

In 2015 One Chinese company brought SuperSU from our root-god, Chainfire. Then he states that though it sold he still collaborate with this company to taking care of SuperSU. At that time also SuperUS worked properly. Then in 2016 Google able to launch SafetyNet. But it simply restricted some applications on rooting phones. It was a problem for root users.
