Kingoroot for Android Root

Kingoroot android rootThe app version

In fact, the only complicated part is actually getting that app onto your Android device. That’s because it’s not available in the Google Play Store; instead, you must download the KingoRoot APK and manually install it.

Ideally, you’ll just point your device’s mobile to the KingoRoot Android page and download it directly. If that doesn’t work for some reason, or you’re working from your PC, download the APK and email it to yourself as an attachment. Then, on your device, open that e-mail and download that attachment.

To install it, however, you’ll need to make sure your device is set to allow apps from unknown sources. In most versions of Android, that goes like this: Head to Settings, tap Security, scroll down to Unknown Sources and toggle the switch to the on position.

Now you can install KingoRoot. Then run the app, tap One Click Root, and cross your fingers. If all goes well, your device should be rooted within about 60 seconds.

The desktop version

Kingo’s support pages suggested I might have better luck with the Galaxy S6 if I tried the Windows version of KingoRoot. Here’s that process:

Step 1: Download and install KingoRoot for Windows, making sure to leave unchecked the option to “Install Yahoo powered Chromium browser” and then click Decline to prevent any other adware incursions.

Step 2: Enable USB debugging mode on your phone. If it’s running Android 4.0 or 4.1, tap Settings, Developer Options, then tick the box for “USB debugging.” (You may need to switch “Developer options” to On before you can do so.) On Android 4.2, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging.” Then tap OK to approve the setting change.

On Android 4.3 and later, tap Settings, About Phone, then scroll down to Build Number. Tap it seven times, at which point you should see the message, “You are now a developer!”

With that done, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging.” Then tap OK to approve the setting change.

Step 3: Run Android Root on your PC, then connect your phone via its USB sync cable. After a moment, the former should show a connection to the latter. Your device screen may show an “Allow USB debugging?” pop-up. Tick “Always allow from this computer,” then tap OK.

Step 4: Click Root, then sit back and wait while the utility does its thing. After a few minutes, my Galaxy S6 got to 70 percent, and then the phone once again crashed and rebooted. Again, your mileage can (and most likely will) vary.

And that’s all there is to it. If you decide you want to reverse the process, just run Android Root again, connect your phone, then click Remove Root. (Same goes for the app version, more or less.)

Download the Desktop Version directly from the Kingoroot Website
