Root Toolkit for Android™

I wrote this little root utility for myself to help consolidate and automate some root functions that are available in various other apps, but nowhere all together.

Note: this utility does NOT root your Android™ device--it assumes that your device is already rooted.

If you have problems or issues with the app, please contact me via with as much detail as you can provide.


* display current root and device state/status

* reboot options (normal, recovery, bootloader)

* power off device

* remount rootfs (/) and/or /system in read-write or read-only mode; note: remount behavior changed in Android™ 4.2 and higher that causes remount effect to not be usable by apps other than the one that initiated the remount

* save (protect) / restore root function; for 4.2 and earlier devices with ext2/3/4 /system partitons; for 4.3 devices, I've implemented Pau Oliva's 4.3+ functionality; saving root for 5.0+ has not yet been

* freeze (disable) or thaw (enable) an application (use caution when freezing a system app!); see Settings menu to enable display of system apps

* display system (getprop) property values

* calculate an MD5 or SHA1 checksum on any file (navigate to selected file, long-press filename, select desired action)

* options for selected Nexus devices:

-- flash a stock recovery
-- flash various custom recoveries
-- make recovery "stick" (keep stock recovery from overwriting your custom recovery)
-- identify currently installed recovery

* bootloader lock, unlock, status (select Nexus devices: Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2nd gen 2013), Nexus 10)

* small (<25mb) partion backup function now supported in v3.9; note: this is NOT meant as a Nandroid backup replacement, but for use in backing-up small, critical partitions that to assist with device recovery; also note that a restore function is NOT included since the target partition is likely to still be open/mounted; useful for backing-up special partitions like EFS.

    Just installed this on rooted stock Asus Zenfone 6 for the sake of " save or restore root privilege options" but there's no way to test whether it will restore root or not until phone needs system updates . Hope it works.
