Root access Plugin

A Flutter plugin for getting 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.rootAccess;

Declare an async method to retrieve root access

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

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:async';

import 'package:root_access/root_access.dart';

void main() => runApp(new MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _MyAppState createState() => new _MyAppState();

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  bool _rootAccess = false;

  void initState() {

  Future<void> initRootRequest() async {
    bool rootAccess = await RootAccess.rootAccess;

    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted) return;

    setState(() {
      _rootAccess = rootAccess;

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
      home: new Scaffold(
        appBar: new AppBar(
          title: const Text('Plugin example app'),
        body: new Center(
          child: new Text('Root access granted: $_rootAccess\n'),
