Streamline your device and get superuser access

If you have an Android tablet or smartphone, then you’ve noticed that there are many apps and programs that are automatically installed when you purchase the device. In most cases, you can’t uninstall these, even if you don’t use them, and they’re just taking up space. These programs are called bloatware, and they can be an annoyance to users.

The reason you can’t get rid of these apps is that you don’t have administrative privileges, as you would on your computer. Unlike on your Mac or PC, the manufacturer of your smartphone or tablet is inherently the admin. If you want to change that, then you would want to root your device.

Once you install a free root access software like KingoRoot, your phone is yours to control. You can clean up this bloatware and take advantage of superuser access. While this tool is one of the easiest rooter programs available, it’s important that you take caution and do substantial research before you proceed with rooting your Android device.

Rooting your device will give you newfound capabilities and almost unlimited access to the performance of your device. By removing bloatware and customising your own useability, you’ll also extend the battery life of your device.

Rooting

Rooting is the process of allowing users of Android devices privileged control over subsystems, otherwise known as ‘root access.’ This is often performed with the goal of overcoming specific limitations put in place by carriers and hardware manufacturers.

On Android devices, rooting allows you to alter or replace existing system applications and settings that would otherwise require administrator-level permissions. You may also perform other operations that typically are inaccessible to users.

If you root your device, you’ll also be able to facilitate a comprehensive removal and replacement of the operating system. You would usually replace what is there with the most current release of OS.

Often people wonder if rooting is the same thing as jailbreaking, however, these concepts are different. Users Jailbreak to bypass Apple prohibitions for the end-user. This includes modifying the operating systems, installing unapproved apps, and granting administration-level privileges.

Rooting, on the other hand, focuses on the third aspect of jailbreaking, considering most vendors like Sony, HTC, Google, and Asus already allow the ability to unlock devices and replace the OS. Also, you can sideload applications on Android without necessarily having a rooted device.

Permissions

The advantage of using KingRoot is that you’ll have complete control over the look and feel of your device. As a superuser, you’ll have access to system files and all aspects of the OS. With a rooted device, the only limitation that you’ll face is your own level of coding experience.

With KingRoot you can visually change the entire look of your device. Rooting allows support for themes, meaning you can customise everything from the battery icon to the boot animation. You’ll also have full control over the kernel, which allows for overclocking and underclocking the CPU and GPU.

Using KingoRoot gives you full application control including the ability to backup, batch edit, or restore applications. You can also remove bloatware that will come preinstalled on many smartphones.

You’ll have the ability to install additional custom firmware or software that includes an increased level of control for your rooted device

Risks and safety of rooted devices

Rooting your Android device comes with some inherent risks. You must have the necessary technical skills, because carelessness may lead you to accidentally delete files or brick your device.

In some cases, rooting your phone may be a break of your EULA, which means that your manufacturer warranty will be void. Other devices to support rooting, so it’s important that you do your research on user rights before using KingoRoot.

Some users have reported that KingoRoot has installed unwanted adware or malware. When you’re installing the software, do so carefully. Uncheck boxes that ask you to install ‘recommended programs.’

KingoRoot failure

While KingRoot functions with a variety of Android devices, it doesn’t always work. Despite your best effort, this software can’t always give you root access to your device. This doesn’t always mean that the software is broken. There are two common reasons why KingoRoot fails.

There are two reasons that KingoRoot fails. The first and most common issue is that you installed KingoRoot on an OS that doesn’t support the software. Make sure your device is supported to ensure that rooting will work. The software’s universal script makes it compatible with most smartphones and tablets, but not all.

The second reason that it fails is that the bootloader on your Android device is locked. This means that KingoRoot won’t work even if your version is supported. Unlocking your bootloader requires a PC and can cause serious damage to your device if you’re not careful. If you have this problem, it’s better to avoid the process of rooting your phone or tablet.

Use responsibly

KingoRoot is versatile and easy-to-use and can work with a wide variety of Android tablets and smartphones. Once you have it installed, the process of rooting your phone is easy. You can improve the performance of your device, and even extend its battery life. That said, the process of rooting your phone can be risky, so it’s important that you’re aware of what you’re getting into before you install this software.

The latest version supports new devices as well as new versions of Windows PCs. If you want to consider alternatives, you may want to check out Super Root for Android, or KingRoot. Be careful with the commonly used One Click Root, as it’s not the safest option and requires more technical knowledge to use.
