How do i find out if the phone is rooted or not?
Hey everyone i have a telus samsung s3 and it wouldnt accept the unlock code so the guy who i bought the unlock code from said my phone might be rooted and i need to unroot it?
Heres the information from about device:
I also installed this app called "Root Checker" which shows if the device is rooted or not and heres the result:
According to this website: http://www.mobile-spy.com/blog/is-my-phone-rooted/
. I downloaded an app called "Terminal" and followed the instructions:
Another simple way to find out is to download and install a “terminal” client on the phone. A “terminal” is a text-based window that allows us to run commands on Linux devices such as an Android phone or tablet. It is the command line interface for Linux, similar to DOS.
Upon opening the terminal, if you see a “#”, then the phone has root access and is in superuser mode.
If when opening the terminal you see a “$” then the phone is not in superuser mode, but that doesn’t mean that it has not been rooted.
Type “date” and press enter. It should display the date and time. If the date does not display, then the terminal doesn’t work, try downloading another terminal client.
Otherwise, type “su” without the quotes. If the device has been rooted, the next line will display a “#” signifying that you have root access and the device is ready for superuser commands. If it has not been rooted, then the terminal will not recognize the “su” command.

Here are the results:
As you can see it verifies that the phone isnt rooted so please tell me if there is some other way to verify or just those apps?
