"Root or not?"

Reviewed by / Jun 25, 2014

Find out for certain if your device has superuser permissions enabled

joeykrim's Root Checker is exactly what it app name says: a tool for checking whether your phone is root or not. You cannot use to root your phone, It won't grant superuser permissions. It will just check if your mobile device has proper oot or not.

It couldn't be easier to use: install the app, launch it and press "Verify Root" button. It will automatically display a message that will tell "Sorry! This device does not have proper root access" if your device hasn't been rooted or "Congratulations! This device has root access".

That easy. Design isn't its strongest points but... who needs that in this kind of one-shot apps? The only thing that matters if it works. And it certainly does.

The Root Check mode displays, common su binary locations and file permissions, along with root uid/gid results, Superuser.apk installation and version, adb shell default user mode, and the System defined PATH.

The application makes it very simple and easy export the detailed output via email or any other social media application installed on the device. One simple button allows Root or BusyBox details to be shared for collaborating or troubleshooting!

This application will test the device for root access. Very simple, quick and reliable test method to check for root access. The su binary is the most common binary used on Android devices to grant root access. This application will check and verify the su binary location and permissions on the device.

A common method for resolving issues around properly installing and configuring root access via the su binary is to gather the permissions around the su binary along with the installation location.

To grant even greater convenience, this information can be quickly exported and shared for assistance in resolving su binary and root issues.

    Works as expected. On the new version with material design it says there is no busybox installed. If you switch to the old design it detects the busybox installation. Moto G 2014 running KK 4.4.4
