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, /system and root (/) mount status, and root save status; will also display bootloader lock status for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

* 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 devices with ext2/3/4 /system partitons, a copy of su binary can be saved and later restored; for 4.3

devices, I've implemented Pau Oliva's 4.3+ "OTA rootkeeper" functionality (i.e., via

* freeze (disable) or thaw (enable) an application (use caution when freezing a system app!); you can select showing user and/or system apps in the Freeze/Thaw Display Options in the Preferences/Settings menu

* display system (getprop) property values

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

* Samsung Galaxy Nexus, LG Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (1st gen/2012) only options:

-- 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 (Galaxy Nexus only)

* option to turn confirmation mode on / off (defaults to on)

* option to turn "safe mode" on for the app to prevent any su or flashing operation from occurring
