How To check If Your Android Phone Is Rooted or Not

You can now easily check if your Android device is rooted or not. For one reason or the other one may lose the root privilege on an android device. This is not too far fetched since updating OTA may cause root privileges to be lost. Also, sometimes, a need may arise that would require the device to be taken to service centre for repairs. Usually, when an android phone is rooted, the guys at service centre may refuse to accept it for repairs under warranty. So, root needs to be checked and removed before taking it in for service.

Now, there is a small application that allows you to check the root status of your Android phone.

All you need to do is just to head over to the Google Play Store and download a small app called Root Checker by Joeykrim.

Once its installed, just click on Verify Root Access and immediately it will display to you the results as shown in the image below.

One good thing about this app is that it doesn't require root access to check if your device is rooted or not. This small app may come in handy when you need to verify that an Android device has root access or not.
