Standard

Download UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip

Download CWM / TWRP installable ZIP from https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip

 
Recovery Mode

Boot into TWRP or CWM Recovery.  TWRP or CWM Recovery has inbuilt ADB functionality, hence ADB commands work while in recovery mode. Connect the device with computer through USB cable and run following command.

adb push UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /external_sd/

The file is now available on SD card.  Flash and reboot

 
NOTE:

If you don’t have SD card then push the zip into internal storage with following command

adb push UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /sdcard/

Don’t confuse with /sdcard , it actually points to the internal storage while /external_sd points to the external SD card.

Unlock, root and flash custom recovery on androidone, everything through linux
