It has been just above 2 years due to the fact Chainfire noted the sale of root tool SuperSU to a newly formed manufacturer called CMMT. Despite some initial fears, this transfer of ownership hasn’t negatively impacted users, and SuperSU is yet chugging together. On the other hand, Chainfire’s two-year contract with CCMT is operating out, Therefore it’s period for him to move on. To which? A lot of stuff, probably.

According to Chainfire, part of the deal was that he’d remain involved with SuperSU for two years as CCMT took over development. During that time, typical updates have continued, and Chainfire has completed a full code review. He aims to remain in touch with CCMT in an advisory role through February 24 of upcoming year, but his day-to-day responsibilities are done.

Chainfire intends to shift his focus a bit, but that doesn’t mean it’s likely to leave mobile development behind. He did just release announced this month as an excuse to mess about with Python.
