Root Checker


This application, Root Checker (Basic), will allow the user to confirm they have proper root ( superuser ) access configured and operational.

**** THIS APPLICATION WILL NOT ROOT THE DEVICE ****

*Feel free to email me with any questions. I always reply!*

The goal of this application is to provide even the newest Android user with a simple method to check their device for root (administrator/superuser) access. This is a very simple application to notify the user whether or not they have properly setup root access.

This application will test the device for root access using a very simple, quick and reliable method. The su binary is the most common binary used on Android devices to grant and manage root access. Root Checker will check and verify that the su binary is located in a standard location on the device. Root Checker will also confirm the proper permissions and flags on the su binary in addition to testing that access is granted by the su binary.

Many times users experience issues along the path of installing, configuring and gaining root access. For some users the process can seem complex while for others the process can seem simple. Regardless of the user's technical skill set, Root Checker, will quickly and correctly verify whether or not root access is 100% functioning. The process of confirming root access is sometimes known by other terms such as, gaining superuser access or gaining administrator access. Root Checker covers all these terms as they relate to one core function, being able to execute commands with root access.

If the Superuser or SuperSU applications are installed and working properly, these applications will prompt the user to accept or deny the root access request from Root Checker. Accepting the request will allow Root Checker to check for root access. Denying the request will result in Root Checker reporting no root access.
