OK, I am not sure if my phone is rooted now or for sure 100%. What I can tell you is that I do have the following apps installed and did run Root Checker from the market. It did tell me I have root access. Installed - Root Explorer BusyBox Superuser All of which are telling me that they are rooted. Ok now with that being said here is my problem. When I go into rootexplorer and copy/paste any apk file to my sdcard it works when I look for it inside my phone. But, when I plug my phone in to my computer and look for that same apk file on the sdcard it is no longer there. It is only there when I look at it inside the phone. Is this because I am running ICS or is my phone not really rooted at all? Here is what I used to gain root. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1886460 Now the last phone he roots is the LG Optimus G from Canada which has the same build number as my phone both running android 4.0.4. When I ran the program it ran thru everything the same as his and told me I had root. Do I really? Can someone please comment on this problem? If I do have root thats great but why can't I see the apk's on my sdcard outisdie the phone?
