Root access Plugin

A Flutter plugin for requesting root access in Android apps.

This plugin is based on RootTools by Stericson.

This plugin is only for Android platform.


Import the root_access plugin

Follow the plugin installation instructions.

Use the plugin

import 'package:root_access/root_access.dart';

Define a bool variable and assign a value

bool _rootStatus = false;

The RootAccess class provides a getter to get root access and status

bool rootStatus = await RootAccess.requestRootAccess;

Declare an async method to retrieve root access

Future<void> initRootRequest() async {
    bool rootStatus = await RootAccess.requestRootAccess;
    setState(() {
      _rootStatus = rootStatus;

Later you can use _rootStatus in your code to let app know the status of root access. If it's false then root access is not granted in access prompt dialog and if it's true then root access has been granted to the app.


See the example application source for a complete sample app using the Root Access plugin.
