If your intention is to root an Android something more current, we recommend KingRoot.
With this tool you will be able to root the great majority of devices that use Android versions included between Android 4.4 and Android 8.0, offering root support to thousands of smartphones of different brands.
The rooting tool KingRoot can be used in two different ways: directly from an app installed on the device to root, or installing it on a PC to perform the process from it.
Root Android using KingRoot App
The first option is the simplest since it is enough to access the KingRoot website and download the APK file of the app and then copy it to the memory of your Android device.
Before installing it, activate the option Unknown sources (or Unknown origins) as we showed you in the previous section.
It is possible that, when trying to install KingRoot, even if you have activated the Unknown sources option, the app will show you an error message indicating that the installation is blocked. Simply unfold the options at the bottom and touch on Install anyway (not secure). This block is a measure of system protection and tells you that this application could change user permissions, just what you are trying to do to get unlock root permissions.
Once installed, you just have to start the app. After analyzing the device to check if it is compatible, click on the Test Root button at the bottom and start the process.
When finished, the app will tell you if the process has been a success, or on the contrary, has failed during the rooting process of your device.
here is a step to step process for that:
- Allow the installation of applications from unknown sources on your device.
Settings> Security> Unknown Origins
- Download KingoRoot.apk free on your Android.
- Install and Start KingoRoot.
- Click on “One Click Root” in the main interface.
- Wait a few seconds until the result appears.
- Try a few times more different rooting methods if you have failed.
- If you still do not succeed in rooting your device after several tests, try the KingoRoot Android version for PC, which has a higher success rate.
Root Android Using KingRoot PC version
Make sure you have everything well prepared beforehand.
- The device on
- At least 50% battery level
- Internet connection (WiFi)
- The USB cable (We recommend that you use the original)
Step 1: Free download and install KingoRoot Android (Version for PC). Kingo offers the best rooting Android software with just one click for free. All you need to do now is download and install it.
Step 2: Double-click on the Kingo Android Root icon and launch it.
After starting Kingo Android Root, you will see its interface as what is shown below
Step 3: Connect your Android device to the computer with the USB cable.
If the device driver is not installed on your computer, Kingo will do it automatically for you. Make sure you get good Internet connections so that the device driver can be downloaded. If you use Windows 8, you may have to change some settings first. When running Kingo Android Root in Windows 8, the most likely problem that may arise is the driver installation looping cycle.
Step 4: Activate debug mode by USB on your Android device.
When the device is connected to a PC, enabling USB Debug mode is a necessary step in the Android rooting process. This mode is activated in the developer options, which are usually hidden and we must unlock them by pressing 7 times on the text of Compilation Number found in Settings> About the device (Phone information). IMPORTANT: Pay attention to a symbol window that will appear on the device screen. Check “Always allow from this computer”. If you do not, you are likely to get an OUT OF LINE DEVICE.
Step 5: Read the notifications carefully before rooting your device.
The rooting of Android is not a very serious problem, however, it is not insignificant either. Rooting your device can open a door for you, but also with the risks. The user who decides to root is solely responsible for any damage to the phone or loss of data that may be derived from the download.
Step 6: Click on “ROOT” to root your device.
Kingo Android Root will use multiple exploits on the device, which will probably take a couple of minutes. In the rooting process, the device can be restarted several times. Do not worry, it’s very normal. And once it starts, please, DO NOT go touch it, move it, disconnect it or perform any operation on the device.
Step 7: Succeed in rooting your device
Hopefully, your device is well supported and rooted successfully by Kingo. Until the device restarts automatically, do not perform any operation.
Step 8: Check the status of the rooting of your device.
Normally, after rooting successfully, you will find an application called “SuperUser” installed on the device.
At the end of the process, you will have your device rooted and you are ready to enjoy the advantages of being superuser in Android.
