    "Clear up the root doubt"

    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.

    Root Checker is an application designed by following the Google guidelines about Material Design. It checks for the proper implementation of the rooting process and the installation of UNIX BusyBox package through a simple algorithm that was effective on over 150 000 different devices. Within the application, there are also a number of answers to frequently asked questions about modding on the Android platform.

    The app itself only says whether phone is rooted or not and whether it has busybox, but no extra info about the matter. It also displays a lot of ads.

    Installed this after seeing it on XDA. The popup ads are INSANELY intrusive.
