Usually Chinese applications and tools do not hold a good reputation. It may be because earlier, Chinese applications have not fulfilled their promises in serving the needs of the users. However, this application is also designed and developed by Chinese but works great. It serves all the purposes of rooting your Android device safely.
KingRoot enables the user to root their Android device in just a few seconds. However, there is a small system requirement here, that your Android version must be something between 4.2.2 and 5.1. This great framework allows the user to root their Android devices ranging from Lollipop to Towelroot.
How does it work?
KingRoot takes advantages of the vulnerabilities in your Android device to perform the root. Rooting your device is a completely legal procedure. There are a lot of applications and tool that assist the root process, but there can be nothing safe from KingRoot; being a Chinese application. Due to the vulnerabilities in the operating systems, many anti-viruses might deem it malware in the same way they would a keygen or a patcher. But because rooting your device is a completely legal process, there are no risks involved.
A lot of people have tried this application; each of the users has a different story to share. Some are highly satisfied with the results while some find it troublesome. The comfort to use the application and their official website depend on the operating system you are using and the device you are working on.
Some users report it to be a successful root application while some report that KingRoot installs strange folders with Chinese names in their device that keep on popping up in the internal storage. It would be better that the folders installed during the root process can be removed later to free up space.
There have been rumors that the application sends your IMEI to the servers based in China, which is why there are a few trust issues in the users. Also, the website is a little tricky and the application is yet not available on Google Play.
KingRoot has a definite practical use but it is quite sketchy. However, it has broken the ice from the idea that Chinese applications are not practical and worth using.
