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.

Pros

Bricking a phone just got a whole lot easier!

Cons

Program can't be hacked and coded to turn on it's creators and brick them.

Summary

I think you get the point (the point is the software is b-a-d- BAD).

Updated on Dec 1, 2016

Well folks, I decided to give old Kingo Root another chance with my new phone and guess what happened - ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST!

Kingo Root is to androids what the black plague is to humans! I took the thing back to the shop in then hope of getting a new ROM flashed onto it and was having trouble getting the techs to understand what I'd done (I live in Vietnam), but as soon as I said "Kingo Root" the communication barrier fell to the wayside. They started a long and very animated discussion with the name "Kingo Root" popping up occasionally, mixed with comments regarding myself and my decision making abilities ( I assume). In the end I got lucky, because they had mercy on me and replaced the phone and told me not to kill this one!

2 phones bricked in 2 weeks - I'm sure it's not a record, especially with Kingo on the loose....
