Root Toolkit for Android™

Root Toolkit for Android™


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 [email protected] with as much detail as you can provide.


FEATURES:


* 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 keeproot.sh)


* 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


Warning / disclaimer: the author of this app is not responsible for any loss or damage caused by or related to its use.
