Android device rooted check


I want to check my device is rooted or not. When I try this code below in real device is not rooted, its ok. But Non rooted emulator break in this line

if (new File(path).exists()) return true;

"/system/xbin/su" path is exists.

private static boolean isRooted() { String[] paths = { "/system/app/Superuser.apk", "/sbin/su", "/system/bin/su", "/system/xbin/su", "/data/local/xbin/su", "/data/local/bin/su", "/system/sd/xbin/su", "/system/bin/failsafe/su", "/data/local/su", "/su/bin/su"}; for (String path : paths) { if (new File(path).exists()) return true; } return false; }

Genymotion or Android studio's emulator always break in code block.

Is all android emulators rooted?


You can check the device is rooted or not by below method:

public static boolean isRootedDevice(Context context) { boolean rootedDevice = false; String buildTags = android.os.Build.TAGS; if (buildTags != null && buildTags.contains("test-keys")) { Log.e("Root Detected", "1"); rootedDevice = true; } // check if /system/app/Superuser.apk is present try { File file = new File("/system/app/Superuser.apk"); if (file.exists()) { Log.e("Root Detected", "2"); rootedDevice = true; } } catch (Throwable e1) { //Ignore } //check if SU command is executable or not try { Runtime.getRuntime().exec("su"); Log.e("Root Detected", "3"); rootedDevice = true; } catch (IOException localIOException) { //Ignore } //check weather busy box application is installed String packageName = "stericson.busybox"; //Package for busy box app PackageManager pm = context.getPackageManager(); try { Log.e("Root Detected", "4"); pm.getPackageInfo(packageName, PackageManager.GET_ACTIVITIES); rootedDevice = true; } catch (PackageManager.NameNotFoundException e) { //App not installed } return rootedDevice; }

It will return true if the device is rooted else false.
