    I referred to a site for rooting my android 4.0.4 phone.All the drivers were copied. After the bin4ry process, the site said i would get a restore option on my phone to reboot it, but i didn’t. Hence, I ejected the phone and manually rebooted it. I downloaded root checker and it said my device wasn’t rooted. HELP! is it safe to re-root, without doing anything else.

      Yes, you can try re-rooting the device if you weren’t successful in the first try.

      Thanks!

    Note – I had titatnium installd on my phone before rooting then i rooted the phone and it started to show that the phone has root access but now after unrooting still it shows that have root access so i uninstalled titanium & again installed but it shows the same

    After you check for root access what do you do then? I mean does the app have any further use or can you just delete it?
