Last week, we ran a quick poll to see if our readers would like to see more applications for rooted devices so here’s the first of many to come!
Root checker is a simple application that’s designed to verify if your device has root access or BusyBox installed. With one click you can instantly see if your attempt to root your phone was successful. Rooting for many devices has become easier and it’s not even just for geeks anymore. Regardless of how conveinent, it’s still possible to have a failed attempt.
To use Root Checker, it’s very simple. Run the app and click “Verify Root Access”. If your successful you’ll get this screen:
If your phone failed to root, you’ll be presented with this:
The same process applies when verifying BusyBox. Many rooted applications rely on BusyBoy being installed on your device. If you don’t have it installed, there are many apps on the Market that allow you to install BusyBox.
Also, another app by this developer is WiMAX RSA Key Chceker. It has the same functionality of Root Checker except it verifies that you have the RSA key to have access to the WiMAX network. Many devices may loose that capability when rooting or installing custom ROMS on devices such as the HTC Evo.
Please: note this app DOES NOT root your device and DOES NOT install BusyBox.
Ease of Use:
Doesn’t get much simpler than this. One-click and your done!
