Before proceeding on with the rooting process, please make sure that you have the following requirements met:

  • Your device is powered ON.
  • Your device has over 50% battery level. (Providing your battery is healthy, otherwise, it is best to be at 100%)
  • Internet connection required (WiFi network suggested).
  • Allow installations of unknown sources.

The most straightforward way to use KingoRoot is to download and install the app version, which pretty much, in a nutshell, performs the root process on your device in one click, Remember though, that this process doesn't work with every Android device.
