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.

".exe won't delete off of hard drive."

May 28, 2015  |  By JustRosy

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.3.6.2289

Pros

I have no idea.

Cons

The publisher's name is in a different language so I chickened out and chose not to start the installation process. I tried to delete it and even File Assassin can't get it off my hard drive.

Summary

Don't bother with it.

"Lenovo P780 Doesn't work"

May 26, 2015  |  By minugu

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.3.6.2289

Pros

At-least, my device ain't bricked!!!

Cons

Doesn't work on P780 8GB version in India.
Android version 4.4.2
Build number : P780_ROW_8G_S228_150112
Kingoapp version 1.37

Reason for giving single star is that their website clearly mentions it will work for P780. However their app tried downloading dependencies for more than 5 minutes and finally said failed to root. However P780 came back to home screen without any issue though.

Summary

Even though root failed kingo app installed itself as well as another bloat ware(AB browser) on my phone successfully. Had to manually uninstall those

Get up and walk away from the machine. Mine took almost half an hour (after several false starts when I did NOT walk away). I will be donating actual $$.

"Easy Root on My Transformer Prime tf201"

December 29, 2014

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.2.9.2183

Pros

I have been studying how to root my aging Transformer Prime TF201. The Last Asus upgrade was to 4.1.1. I was directed to Kingo by the Android Developer Site. It was a piece of cake. It took longer to add the usb drivers for windows than it did to root my Prime. It also adds in SuperU. I was able to then add Titanium Back up and run a full back up. I also removed much of the bloat ware that Asus installed.

Cons

None so far

Summary

If you want a simple root (boot loader still locked) that is fully automated. USE Kingo.
