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.

    A great app... Does what it promises. Am very happy about the back end support too.... I got immediate resolution when I mailed the developer on an issue I had, and the same was resolved in the minimum time.
