I also discovered the Barclays Pingit online banking app also does a root check and this too says my tablet is rooted.
Also it is suggested that there are two files apps look for to determine if the device is rooted. I'm wondering if these could stay on the device even through a ne rom has been installed? Files in question are:
File explorer does not give access to the system folder, so I'm not sure how I can see without rooting the device again, which presumably vreates the files in the first place.
Any ideas how i can get to the system folder to check if these are there (and delete if they are) without rooting the tablet?
Maybe via adb, but I don't know for sure. I dont have lots of experience with adb, so I can't really say. The only way I know to get to these folders is via a root browser.
But I might have an idea to make your app working:
First do a factory reset (BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA! and take your sd out, because everything will be wiped) and update via OTA. If you're country don't has the 4.4.2 update, boot your device in downloading mode (volume down and power button) and use Odin to install the firmware from sammobile.
Thank me if it helped, reply if it didn't or if I'm wrong.
