    1. Hi Mohd,
      Yes, there is a english version of vroot available.
      Download vroot English version from here.
      By the way, on the chines version, Open vroot > connect your device > press the green button on the bottom right of vroot window.

  1. Ho scaricato vroot nella versione in inglese,e mi a aperto le root nel mio sony xperia j,
    Ho controllato con root checker e mi conferma l’apertura delle root.
    Adesso volevo passare tutto su superuser in italiano sia lo stemma con l’igranaggio che l’altra app in cinese che non capisco cosa sia.
    Quando entro in superuser in binary v 11 com.mgyun.shua.su(0) e faccio per aggiornare, mi da che l’aggiornamento non riesce e che la app si è bloccata in maniera anomala.
    Cosa devo fare?
    Ce un’altro sistema per attivare superuser o un’altra app?
    Tieni presente che non sono un asso in queste cose ma ci sto provando perchè ho poca memoria nel cell.

    Ti ringrazio
