There are many tools or apps that can be used to gain root access, however, since each device has a different software, so it’s hard to develop a universal root tool or app for all Android devices.


There’s a new powerful app called Kingroot, in the past you might also hear about Kingo utility, despite having similar names, but they come from different developers. As opposed to the Kingo utility that can only be run with the help of a Windows computer, Kingroot also have an installer app (APK) that can be run directly on the mobile phone/tablet, so we will no longer mess around with USB driver issues.

Just like Kingo tool, the Kingroot also made by Chinese developers and likely made just for people who understand Chinese, because up to now (version 4.0) there is no option to change the language to English. Of course, this is quite difficult for those who did not understand this language.
