I have added Samsung Galaxy S4 using genymotion while I was using windows os. Now I'm using linux and added that device again. My problem is that the S4 is not rooted on my linux machine. I wonder if this is a bug ? If it's not a bug can someone help me to root this device ?


Genymotion devices are rooted by default. For example start a device then type adb shell command. It will open a rooted shell:

root@vbox86p:/ # whoami

You can also manage the root access of your applications by opening superuser app through the apps launcher.
