mobile iron root checker app for MDM Android

I wanted to use my rooted/unlocked nexus 6 on my companies Mobile Iron MDM, so I ended up having to relock and unroot. I still had issues with Mobile Iron saying my OS was comprimised. I went through a few apps, and it was still flagged. I contacted Mobile Iron and they said they had an application called root checker that tells you why it’s flagged.

This is the most recent as of today:

You have to enable ‘Unknown Sources’ under Settings -> Peronsal Security -> Unknown Sources and install it.
unnamed

Then you can run it and it will basically tell you what’s flagged.

update:
looks like this was being abused, I was contacted by mobile iron to remove this. I am guessing someone used this to skirt around the lockdown. tsk tsk!
