Similar to StartAsRoot for FileCase, but created as patch. It add indicators "NEMO" and "ROOT" to the cover (see screenshot) and you also can open more than one windows as nemo.
REMEMBER: Editing files in root directories can KILL your phone/tablet!

NOTE:
1. Don't forget to unapply patch before you update/reinstall FileCase app!
2. For both Phone and Tablet users - if you update or reinstall FileCase app, you need to UNINSTALL and reinstall this patch (sorry for inconvenient).

Known (possible) issues:
For me it happened only on v2.1.1.12. If app starts as nemo instead as root, try this workaround. For some mysterious reasons the phone sometimes remove "dconf" folder, and you need to recreate it. Do it as root = or as "su" or as "devel-su", try both variations.
mkdir -p /run/user/0/dconf
It should stay here, but sometimes when you close fingerterm, the folder deleted again.
