    I saw this on my phone's open source licenses:
    /root/file_contexts
    /root/init
    /root/property_contexts
    /root/sbin/adbd
    /root/seapp_contexts
    /root/sepolicy

    Is this means my phone is rooted?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Have you run any root checker apps that are available on the Play Store?

    /root is just the name of a folder. It normally mans, though, that the phone is, or once was, rooted. Even if it's not currently rooted, many secure apps (banking, pay apps, like Google pay, etc. - apps that deal with money - will refuse to run on a phone that shows signs of having been rooted, because some insecure apps could have been installed while it was, and would still be in there. If you need the app, you're probably going to have to reflash the ROM, and to give you a link to instructions, we'd need to know which model phone you have. And, to keep the conversation here, instead of starting it all over again, you;d have to create an account here.
