Simple Root Checker quickly checks if the device you are holding is or isn’t rooted

Let’s say you bought a smartphone on a second-hand market and you don’t know whether the device is rooted or not. Or maybe, you are trying to root the device yourself, and you want to check if you did it correctly. Whatever: Simple Root Checker is what you need.

Easy and quick: download the app and press the button “check” in the “home” tab. It’ll make three verification: if the terminal is rooted, if Busybox is installed and Busybox version. In addition, it will display device and Android version installed.

Just in case you don’t know exactly what all that concepts stand for, you can swipe right and read the definitions from the “Root FAQ” tab.

Fast, easy and works properly. That’s all folks.

Developer's original description available here
Root Checker is a clean and simple tool to check root and BusyBox status (if they are installed correctly or not). With a pure Material Design User Interface, developed following official Google's guidelines, Root Checker is one of the best apps in the whole Google Play Store in his genre. Inside the application you will find also a simple answers to frequently question like "What is root?" or "What is BusyBox?".

Note: This app doesn't root your device.

This application test root access using a simple algorithm that has been successful for over 100.000 Android devices. It execute "su" command and check the output. A similar algorithm is used to check BusyBox status. Anyway, if your device is correctly rooted when you run Root Checker you get a message from SuperSU or Superuser in order to grant or deny root access to the app.

    Works for the most part. It did report i was rooted. i didn't have busy box installed properly but it told me i did. I had the busy box app but none of my paid rooted based apps worked. I had to install busy box zip through odin then finally things worked. so is why i gave it 3 stars. But for the most part,good app.
