"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.

    This app does not work on Samsung Note 3 Neo with Android 4.4.2. Says phone is not rooted when it is. Says Super User not installed when it is and working. Link to Busy Box not working. Don't waste your money.
