Similar to StartAsRoot for Filetug, 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.
FileTug app for tablet, you can find here: http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1501576&postcount=102
REMEMBER: Editing files in root directories can KILL your phone/tablet!

NOTE:
1. Don't forget to unapply patch before you update/reinstall Filetug app!
2. For Tablet users - if you update or reinstall Filetug 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.

v0.1-5
- For ROOT view, added /root/rpmbuild shortcut.

v0.1-4
- For ROOT view, the shortcuts on the first page changed from /root to /home/nemo
- For both (root and user), fixed Android storage path and added Home button in the Shortcuts page.
- SD card moved above the Bookmarks.

v0.1-3
- Should fix problem with root access.

v0.1-2
- Resizable icon and text move down on the cover.

v0.1-1
- Initial release.

Beware, use it on your own risk !!!
