  1. I use Lineage OS 7.1.1 on a Yureka and root works fine. Except when I use ES FileExplorer from Play store. When I try to enable Root Explorer on that app (which enables me to use the explorer/file manager as root and modify files on /system for example), the app says “Sorry test failed. This feature cannot run on your device.” This in spite of the fact that root is enabled on the phone and has given permission to the ES FE app to run as root. I’ve looked around and haven’t found a solution to this. Looks like ES File Explorer is looking for some specific files or binaries to see if the device is rooted and isn’t finding that. Any ideas to make ESFE Root Explorer work in Lineage will be appreciated.
