View Full Version : [Bug] SuperUser Access

01-28-2012, 04:35 AM
I have a rooted Android phone and was fairly surprised when the steam app tried to get superuser access.

I denied access to it (as why would it even require it?) and told the phone to remember my decision. Now it keeps trying to get access again (I can see the access denied message pop up all the time). This is starting to really slow down the app as the ui slows to a crawl each time it gets denied.

and this is why it's a closed beta. Thanks for reporting this ^^

When did it first ask for Super User access?

What happens if you allow the access? Blizzard's authenticator app tries to get root and pops up a security warning if the phone is rooted, this could be something similar.

I have a rooted Galaxy Nexus running a custom ROM and have not had it ask for Super User access.

I can't seem to get it to repeat this now.
I quit the app as it was too annoying with all the slowdown, but now I've opened it again, it hasn't asked for access. I've tried going to all the screens to see which one might get it to ask and to see what it does, but none of them have triggered it so far.

My phone is rooted and I haven't seen any superuser access requests from the steam app yet.

Same here. Steam Mobile hasn't asked for superuser access yet.

HTC Desire with root and custom ROM, no request for superuser here.

HTC Desire HD rooted and Steam did not asked for SU

Rooted HTC HD2 with custom Android, and rooted Asus Transformer TF101, no request for Superuser.

It could be a bug related to the ROM he's using or even just the type of phone he has.

Rooted Samsung Galaxy S II on stock (well Samsung stock) Android 2.3 and it hasn't asked for superuser

How do you get the pop ups about access requests?
I've got a rooted Samsung GS2.
