If you root your android device, and then factory restore it... does it remain rooted?


1 Answer 1


Yes. you need to Root after Factory Reset

also, and if you want to unroot then remove busybox, remove files in /system/xbin folder, and in SuperSU application in Options, Choose Uninstall

    This is not correct. Root binaries are put in /system, unless you use some kind of very unusual root method, and /system is not erased by a factory reset. You wouldn't need to re-root unless you somehow moved your root app (Superuser, SuperSU) to a user app on /data (but there's no reason to do that). Jun 11, 2014 at 1:21
