The Android system is an open source OS based on Linux. Thus, root access should be easy to achieve, if there weren’t any extra security features added by carriers and OEMs. That’s why, for almost each Android based smartphone or tablet you need to use a different root exploit – the same is being applied when talking about different versions of the Android software. Anyway, thanks to these of xda-developers we now have a new universal one click root tool, which is currently compatible with almost all the devices out there, including the latest Samsung Galaxy S6.
Therefore, if you are a newbie, or if you are on your first root experience, try to keep it all simple, safe and secured. In that respect, try the following guidelines as by using the new Kingroot one click root exploit you should be able to root your Android smartphone / tablet in less than a minute. Isn’t that great? Well, if you want to find out further details before heading towards the steps from below, don’t hesitate and read all the lines from this dedicated step by step guide.
The Kingroot app is developed by those of xda-developers and represents a third party app that shouldn’t be related with Google in any matter. This tool is offering a one click root feature which is supposed to work on any Android firmware (it is compatible with Gingerbread, KitKat, Jelly Bean and also with Lollipop) and which is also compatible with almost all the Android based devices that are available on the market – both mid range and high end. The same tool is also offering instant root access that can be achieved right from your handset (you don’t have to use a computer in order to complete this tutorial).
As you might already know, root access refers to a dedicated and unofficial Android process. This operation represents the first step to make when thinking in powering up the performances of your smartphone or tablet. As already pointed out, when you first buy an Android device, it will be delivered with a locked Android system, which means that you will have to deal with factory and default restrictions. Unfortunately, if you keep your phone locked, without ensuring root access, you won’t be able to unleash the true potential of your handset.
I am talking about applying complex and dedicated operations such as installing a custom recovery image (such as CWM or TWRP recovery), flashing custom ROMs (like CyanogenMod, AOKP, or ParanoidAndroid), making Nandroid backups (for saving the current ROM that powers your Android device), install apps that requires root access in order to work properly, install a custom kernel, overclock your Android device and lot more. Thus, if you really want to you’re your phone / tablet on full power, gaining root access isn’t an option for you.
Of course, since this operation isn’t official and since this universal root exploit is developed by third party devs, by following the current step by step guide, you will lose the warranty of your smartphone. In a few words that means you won’t be able to reclaim the warranty of something wrong happens with your Android device – for example, if you take your handset back to service, you will have to pay for the technical assistance; or you will have to learn how to manually fix a bricked Android device.
Since this is a complex and risky operation, ensuring root access might corrupt your data, or a wipe might just happen – that’s unlikely to happen when using the new Kingroot universal root tool, but you can never be too sure when talking about your personal data, info and accounts. Because of that I recommend you to backup your Android device in order to save anything that you might use afterwards – including contacts, call logs, text messages, internet settings, EFS folder, market apps, images, videos, audios, bank accounts and so on.
As you will notice, the Kingroot one click root app will install the following on your Android device: Su Binary – which is the most important part of the root process; this software will be added on /System/xbin directory; King User – which is the Kingroot version of the SuperSu app; the Kinguser app also allows you to remove system apps and disable auto start of apps; King Master - this is another app from Kingroot which will improve the device performance by making the app hibernation automatic and archiving notifications.
Don’t worry, if you will not find this universal root tool on your taste, you will then be able to easily uninstall it from your Android device; of course, if you do so, then root access will be revoked.
Now, before doing anything else, on your smartphone or tablet gain developer rights – you can achieve that by going to “menu – settings – about phone”. From there tap several times on built number and you are done. Afterwards, access the following path “menu – settings – developer options” and from there enable the USB debugging option. Finally, check the battery status on your Android device and if the power left will be lower than 50%, don’t hesitate and plug in the charger – your device might get bricked, if it gets turned off in the middle of the root process.
Before applying the steps from below, check to see if the Kingroot app is compatible with your Android device, or not; you can do so by going towards this page (that’s the developer page, so you should thank them for the present root possibility).
