Editors' Review

Kingo Android ROOT helps you start the process of rooting your Android phone, but it doesn't do much more than give you access. Think of it as a key to your phone's developer features: it's useful, but what you do once you're inside is entirely up to you. If you need that sort of kick start, this app is a fine way to do it.

Kingo Android ROOT automatically detects any gadget you connect to your computer to start the rooting process. Don't mistake this for a custom ROM, though; you'll still need one of those once you root your phone and this app doesn't give you many options in that respect. It will sync your data to a second app before you root just in case something goes wrong. Once you've done that, the app presents you with a single button that lets you root your phone. All you need to do is click it and it goes to work. The whole process takes a few minutes, which is standard among rooting programs. In addition to its smooth performance, Kingo Android ROOT has a futuristic layout, which is nice for the small amount of time you spend looking at it.

There's not much you can do with this program, but anyone who needs help rooting their phone will just love it. Kingo Android ROOT takes so much of the guesswork out of rooting your Android phone or tablet. If you need this type of help, this program provides it and does it with style.

    "Does not work on Samsung S3 with 4.3"

    June 21, 2014   |   By jrusling

    Version: Kingo Android Root 1.2.2.1915

    Pros

    May work fine with some devices.

    Cons

    I have 4.3 that has KNOX built in. The root kit installed, but KNOX prevents SU from running. Now Kingo will try to install, but it will not uninstall the root kit. The OTA upgrade to 4.4 will not install with the root kit. I will have to decide how I am going to get back to factory.

    Summary



    Updated on Jun 21, 2014

    This was on a Samsung S3.

    "Not up-to-date with Android"

    May 14, 2014   |   By rsawoseyin

    Version: Kingo Android Root 1.2.2.1915

    Pros

    Seemingly simple to use.

    Cons

    Current version does not seem to cater for Android versions later than 4.2.2. It's claim to be able to root Galaxy S5 and Note 3 Neo seem false as these run at least Android 4.3.

    Summary

    Promising, but not useful for Android versions later than 4.2
