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.

"Doesn't work"

January 21, 2016  |  By dabent

2016-01-21 05:43:27  |  By dabent

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.4.3.2539

Pros

No pros it is crap-ware that will brick HTC and Panasonic phones.

Cons

Bricked a HTC Inspire, Locked/tampered with a HTC One X, and no Super User access on a Panasonic. If rooted this way not a true root. Can not gain full root access.

Summary

Do not trust your phone to Kingo. There are much easier ways to root a phone without the headaches of Kingo. This will load much bloatware and crapware to your computer. It will also tell you that your phone is rooted and ready...Its not. Kingo is a fake root, no true root access.

"Crippled software"

August 24, 2015  |  By dangnad1

2015-08-24 16:30:24  |  By dangnad1

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.4.0.2390

Pros

None with an htc Desire 610

Cons

Tricks and deception. Only works with a few phones.

Summary

Since the developers of Kingo know in advance which phones are compatible with the software, why would they make me download, install, and run Kingo only to find it cannot root an htc 610 Desire.

Then they follow up with an insulting email saying "We are so sorry for not delivering the best result. We will keep trying and let you know as soon as your device is supported."

Note that I am not complaining about the ability of Kingo to root certain phones; above is testimony to that. I just detest software developers who are unable to think things through. Identifying all angles is the hallmark of any good programmer.

Thus, a simple list of phones on their website that can be rooted with Kingo is all that is needed. Yet on http://www.kingoapp.com/android-root/devices.htm they list "htc". Lies!

"Worked! (Eventually.)"

July 19, 2015

2015-07-19 14:57:52

 |  Version: Kingo Android Root 1.3.9.2351

Pros

It worked, the cheap-o tablet is rooted.

Cons

Took a lot of tries.

Summary

Tried it at least a dozen times on Saturday, restarting every machine involved, stopping juuuuust short of going into full voodoo mode.

Tried it *one more time* today, while waiting for an email back after I sent in a log file.

It worked. -.-

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

May 28, 2015  |  By JustRosy

2015-05-28 23:00:04  |  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.
