Verify proper root (superuser or su) access is configured and working using Root Checker! Free, fast, easy, and used on over 50 million Android devices, Root Checker shows the user whether or not root (superuser) access is properly installed and working.

This application provides even the newest Android user with a simple method to check their device for root (administrator, superuser, or su) access. The application provides a very simple user interface that easily notifies the user whether or not they have properly setup root (superuser) access.

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

This application will test the device for root (superuser) access using a very simple, quick, and reliable method that has been successful for over 50 million Android devices. The su binary is the most common binary used on Android devices to grant and manage root (superuser) access. Root Checker will check and verify that the su binary is located in a common standard location on the device. In addition, Root Checker will verify whether the su binary is properly functioning in granting root (superuser) access.

Many times users experience issues along the path of installing, configuring, and gaining root access or uninstalling and removing 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 through the su binary with root access.

If the Superuser management applications (SuperSU, Superuser, etc.) 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 and confirm root access. Denying the request will result in Root Checker reporting no root access.

For scenarios when there is concern somebody else might have installed root access on the device, Root Checker can validate whether root access is installed providing more insight and knowledge.

Please don't leave negative feedback about a concern, bug or issue! Instead, please email me, tweet me, contact me on my web site -, IRC, or on the forums (XDA, RootzWiki, SDX, etc.) with your feedback, suggestions and comments!

    super su checker if properly install the root. why super su was not suport patch to all types of device which super su zip i mean. super su app is not sell in play store? why happy mode is premium than xda? means vendor. back 2012 google play store to find my old app their gone in my library dev make permanent can install back if you give permission. why xda is power? google play store is powerfull toward future secret is originality. suport super su over all device using super su zip👽🤖🎁

  2. Timothy Doyle-avatar

    apk The free up showed phone as rooted.. i checked on a term emulator as well as other apps and the phone is not. Default settings for a driod 9 do not have the phone rooted. The free app then asks you to upgreade to the paid app for details.. its false advertising.

  3. Gina Jordan-avatar

    pro apk Very useful to root phones with blocked info & used this on my old note 3, but don't need it with my new note 9 in active service. Best for phones that are locked from loss of service or from other people leaving accounts on them. Mine was given to me locked but this enabled me to use it on wifi. Highly recommend.

  4. AiM乛_ Gaming-avatar

    pro I like app its good to check if our device is rooted or not when root our and we had rooted our it helps to check wheather the device is rooted or not if our device is rooted and sometime we need to unroot our device then also it helps so much that device is successfully unroot or not🥰🙏

  5. Ajad Singh-avatar

    basic It's just useless to install the app just know if it is rooted or not. For any further actions it requires a purchased version. Don't go for it.

  6. Ade S-avatar

    advanced Sorry route checker isn't installed correctly.... 5 devices, same message, but option to upgrade there for cash....Shocking

  7. Dezta93-avatar

    android This app is so dumb, checking root by asking root is kinda dumb. The checker should be able to check root even though the access is denied.

  8. Jason Duty-avatar

    download good app the check root. something i have still not been able to do on my phone.

  9. Dagi Man-avatar

    deutsch Ask: in upgrading, remove ads options (that can buy), is that meaning remove ads only in root checker app, or ads in android system?

    This is a good app for checking if your root manager (which I'm pretty sure probably all of us use the application what is called "SuperSu") is working! This is a really good app I recommend it to everyone, I give it a five star rating! By the way, I am not a bot if you're thinking I am.

  22. Valerio Baudo-avatar

    The rankings page said that it would've shown the "reason for root install" only if I bought the full version. I checked that page, and it is exactly the same page as the one before the purchase. Of course now I can't refund it because it was an "in-app purchase". Scammy.

    It was really nice at first, but I learned to watch it on youtube

  29. Macht Schnell-avatar

    Quite comprehensive and notifications are most valuable. A lot of people do not understand that if you are truly rooted, which this application will verify, then you should have an ad blocker that uses root that blocks all the ads. If you're seeing ads you either don't have an ad blocker or you are not rooted., or both.

  30. SPLITSO 2K20-avatar

    pretty cool. I've been using this app for every device i've ever rooted (About 58 phones). I've had great exprience with this app and I highly recommend downloading it!

  31. Arjuna Alvarez-avatar

    This would have been a great app but before I knew what it could it was asking me to upgrade on every function I touched . I uninstalled it

    Not working,freezing on my newer tablet... I downloaded Root Check and it worked,your app failed...

  33. A Google user-avatar

    Works flawlessly. Those saying it gives them a false negative while other root checking apps don't, it's because this app is thorough & others aren't. I was sorta "half rooted" cause something went wrong during rooting. Other root checking apps said i was rooted but i couldn't use the root-requiring apps i wanted. This app insisted i wasn't rooted all along. Rebooting and rerooting didnt help. So i reflashed my stock rom, rerooted & problem solved. If this app says you're not rooted, YOU'RE NOT!

  34. A Google user-avatar

    From being just a simple, non-intrusive root-checking app with adds and general information about root, when I first installed it 3 years ago, it has turned into another attention seeking, check-me-daily see-more-adds app! I get notifications even when I have disabled them! Some users might like it, but this is not my cup of tea.

  35. Ryan techd-avatar

    Thought it as scam at first but all went well ..keep up

  36. Gourav Goswami-avatar

    This application will test the device for root (superuser) access using a very simple, quick, and reliable method that has been successful for over 50 million Android devices.

Root Checker will check and verify that the su binary is located in a common standard location on the device. Good app

  37. PizzaIsLif3-avatar

    Worked well enough for me. It said root wasn't properly installed on the device, but I had to pay to get more information on why it wasn't installed correctly

  38. Moshood Bakare-avatar

    This app has only one job: tell me whether my phone is rooted. And it fails miserably at that. The programmers are more interested in showing ads and getting me to upgrade than telling me whether my phone is rooted -- which was why I downloaded the app in the first instance. Please do not download this app if you want to know whether your phone is rooted. It won't tell you. Check for other root check apps. They work.

  39. Parth Shitole-avatar

    I don't know why people are rating it 1, 2,3 stars If your phone is rooted, then it will show you that its rooted else it will not show that it is rooted. Now many people are saying that this app just tells whether the phone is rooted or not and dont install this app My reply to them is that this apps name is also Root Checker and this app is just made for checking root access and it is necessary for some advanced users to check root access and it works fine So dont rate if you dont know its use

  40. The Lost-avatar

    I recently updated root checker with all in one bundle for money and when I reapened the app, and I still see advertisements and its not advanced root checker, so what did I waste my money on exactly??? 😤 I want my money back or the issue to be fixed now, and when I go to upgrade it again it says that there was an error, I already purchased it

  41. Louille Diozh-avatar

    I'll give this app a complete star from the bottom of my heart. Because, this app is very helpful as you can see more than a thousands review but others didn't realize this app is very helpful. I just want to try this app later because for me this app is helpful. And more than a thousand and hundreds review in this app. Thank you!!😘.... And i just want to congratulate the developer😍 Go9d Job👍👍

  42. Debezt-avatar

    Good app for showing me the exact result. "Sorry! Root access is not properly installed in this device" is it obvious? Of course, it is, very obvious! But what can i do now to root this device because i need to root it since it is not properly rooted.

    How many ads do you want me to view? I got ad while waiting for an ad... And then got an ad after that. This is ridiculous and a sad cash grab. Go get one of the 10.000 other root validaters. This one is bad.

  46. mika macd-avatar

    Keep getting message root access not properly installed.

  47. kenn dias-avatar

    A good app..its perfect

  48. Herbs Spices-avatar

    Works just fine, but I wish I could see where you get the root available stats from, since I can't find a 6.0.1 root for g925v. That said, I'd very much like to know if there is in fact a root for 6.0.1 on the g925v, so please do inform me by any means!

  49. tristan 123455-avatar

    It's a great app, there are just so many people that thought that this will root your phone, the answer is NO, this app is for checking and testing the root on your device after rooting.

  50. betty longdon-avatar

    Warning!!!! Scam wanting payment for upgrade, why should I pay for something that doesn't work. Once you install it tells you sorry root access was not installed properly on your device. There's no other way but to buy the upgrade. Shame haha

  51. Rajat daki-avatar

    Its good but the upgrade is stupid

  52. EggoMyLego-avatar

    Great app, does exactly what it says it does. I love how it says "congratulations", definitely was a relief everything was working.

  53. Arthur Bruel-avatar

    Assuming it works, it works. And please, change the "phone not rooted" message, people don't seem to understand "root not properly installed".

  54. Matt H-avatar

    Good app. Strangely, this free version has been updated fairly recently, yet the pro version hasn't been updated since 2015 and also lacks features that are in the free version, e.g rankings

  58. Noah Fife-avatar

    Not amazing, not accurate. I run android 7.1.2 Lineage OS 14.1. I have full root permissions and access however, this app says I do not. I have used root several times and use a theming engine that requires root.

  60. Harris-avatar

    Because of this app I had to root and unroot thrice for it was showing rooting wasn't done properly. Then i tried other root checker which gave me correct results. Do not download this app unless it is fixed.

  61. Jeff Augustin-avatar

    Be aware I paid $3.99 for no reason I thought the app was gonna root my phone after I paid the amount it says root access is not properly installed on this device couldn't do nothing to root my phone,waste of time and money...👎

  62. Sanjay G-avatar

    Proper installation was done, but the error kept coming that it wasn't installed correctly. Asking for upgrade when the normal wouldn't work. Uninstall in the next minute. Waste.
