Default [Q] How Check Full ROOT on Z1?

Hey Guys,

I got a simply question, I got root but I don't know if I got FULL ROOT, How to check that?

Yes, on Play Store there are 1000 of apps but I don't trust them.

Any commands from Terminal to Determine if I have Full Root?

Uhm open a terminal and make a file in "/system" I guess. You can do that using the following command: "touch /system/roottest.txt".

Better answer provided here.

Get root in terminal first by typing
Code:
su
Then mount system as RW and make a directory by typing
Code:
mount -o remount,rw system 
mkdir /system/test
or, mount system using root explorer and then do this
Code:
su
mkdir /system/test
Trust me, you have full root....

A bit confused here with that code....

adb shell mount -o remount,rw system
mkdir /system/test[/code]


It have to be like that in Terminal?

use root explorer to mount system then try the mkdir again

or just root explorer to mount system..as soon as you can do that you have root.....

Full root just means you keep root after a reboot and the security of the RIC has been disabled
