CheckerPro can be used before or after rooting your device. CheckerPro will not root your device.

What is Root?
The name root is the user name or account that by default has access to all commands and files on the Android operating system. Rooting an Android device is simply the process of gaining full, privileged, or admin control of a device, thus allowing ‘root access’ or ‘superuser’ permissions.

Root and Security
The rooting process usually includes exploiting one or more security bugs on the device. Once rooted, the su binary is copied to a location in the current process’ PATH (e.g., /system/bin/) and granted executable permissions. A third-party supervisor application, like Superuser or Magisk, can then regulate and log elevated permission requests from other applications. By using a supervisor application, you can deny superuser permissions to the vast majority of apps and only allow the necessary ones that you trust.

How do i root my device?
We don’t provide a guide to root your device. Rooting methods frequently change. A simple Google search for “root my [DEVICE NAME]” will usually bring up the most popular and up-to-date guide.

Can i un-root my device?
Yes. Apps that control root access (e.g. Magisk) provide one-click solutions to un-root. Removing root may also involve flashing a RUU, SBF, or something similar. There are many step-by-step guides on how to remove root and return to stock.

Will rooting void my warranty?
It’s legal to root your device; however, in most cases, rooting your device or unlocking the bootloader will void your warranty. If rooted, you should un-root a device before warranty service. Some manufactures have a digital “switch” that flips when you root or unlock the bootloader.

Could rooting brick my device?
It’s possible, but pretty unlikely. Bricking means your device means it won’t turn on or function at all—if you’re stuck in a boot loop or boot straight to recovery, your device is not bricked, and it can be fixed.

Will i get over-the-air updates?
If you haven’t installed a custom ROM, you will likely still get over-the-air (OTA) from your carrier. OTA updates may un-root your device. If you flashed a custom ROM, you will not get OTA updates from your carrier. You may, however, get notifications for updates to your specific ROM.
