The question most people normally ask about their Android device is if it is rooted or not. Maybe you picked up your Android device in computer village, fairly used and you don’t even have an idea about your phone being rooted or not. Don’t too worry; you will know how to do that soonest.
Rooting your Android device gives you super user access to your device; this means you can do almost anything with the phone which the phone will otherwise not permit. It’s turn you into a China hacker automatically hacking your phone.
I will quickly show you two major ways you can check if your phone is rooted or not.
How Can I Check If My Android Phone Is Rooted Or Not Using Manual Method
1. Open your app drawer by clicking on its icon.
2. Look for an app called Superuser or SuperSU. Either app will be installed during the rootingrooted Andriod depends on the device. If either of these apps is on your device, it is rooted.
Superuser can temporarily block root access, while SuperSU has the ability to unroot a device and then remove itself. So if your device lacks any of this two apps, it means your Android phone is not rooted.
How Can I Check if My Android Phone Is Rooted using ConnectBot Or Root Checker
Mind you, Any of this two Apps works well. Just visit Google play and search for any of the two app or better still, Download ConnectBot here; and download Root Checker here.
Run the app on your device and read through the instructions carefully; You will be prompted with the text entry and if you see this sign (#), then your device is rooted but if you see sign like this dollar ($), then your device is not rooted. But try entering the command "su" (without the quote marks). You might see a dialog asking for permission from the SuperUser app, which you can safely grant. If the prompt changes to the (#) sign, you're rooted.
