Kingo ROOT 1.2.3.2051

A straightforward application that provides a one-click method to root Android devices in order to enable full capacity for smartphones
Rooting an Android phone provides the user with full access to the device, not just to those settings considered safe by the developer. Kingo ROOT has been developed as an easy alternative to unlock the full power of your phone.

Among the benefits of rooting an Android phone is access to a whole new set of apps that cannot be installed unless the device is unlocked; and these open the door for extended functionality of the phone.

Simple installation, device support

The installation routine is swift and should not pose any trouble to the user as long as the instructions on the screen are followed.

When all the necessary files are on the system all there is left to do is hook the device to the computer and continue with the instruction on the screen to carry out the job. However, a glance at the list of supported devices and Android versions is advisable as it may save you some time.

Although the developer touts support for a large number of devices it may not work on all of them, as it happened during our testing with one phone model.

One-click rooting

One of the first steps to rooting the connected Android device is to enable USB debugging, which is an operation documented in the application for multiple Android versions.

After this there should be little to be done to finish the job as the program runs the unlocking routine unattended.

Rooting risks

As appealing as unlocking the full potential of the phone might sound, there are some risks to take into consideration because the device is no longer functioning in the protected mode defined by the developer for the average user.

As such, care should be taken when tinkering with some settings as these can lead to unpleasant behavior of the phone. Also, apps have access to sensitive areas on the system.

Conclusion

Kingo ROOT is built for the average user that needs a simple environment for unlocking the device to its full capacity.

The developer boasts support for a wide list of devices but the program may not recognize all of them. However, when the phone is recognized the entire rooting process should go smoothly, but risks are still present.
