Step 1: Download the SuperSU ZIP package and transfer it to the root of your device.
Step 2: (Optional) If you don’t have a custom recovery installed, do it now using your preferred method (ideally you’d want to do that via fastboot).
Step 3: Boot the device into recovery and flash the SuperSU ZIP file.
Step 4: After you’ve flashed the superuser package, wipe cache and dalvik cache, just to be on the safe side.
Step 5: Reboot.
That’s it – your Nexus 4, 10 or Galaxy Nexus is now running rooted Android 4.3.
