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 and device state/status


* 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 and earlier devices with ext2/3/4 /system partitons; for 4.3 devices, I've implemented Pau Oliva's 4.3+ keeproot.sh functionality; saving root for 5.0+ has not yet been
determined


* freeze (disable) or thaw (enable) an application (use caution when freezing a system app!); see Settings menu to enable display of system apps


* display system (getprop) property values


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


* options for selected Nexus devices:

Awesome! THIS APP DOES NOT ROOT YOUR PHONE/TABLET! It is designed to help make use of an ALREADY rooted device. The app works very well and gives a nice compilation of free Root tools to use and with an easy interface. (OnePlus One)
