Root Or Unroot An Android Device With One-Click Via Kingo [Step-By-Step Tutorial]

Just a few days ago, we covered a method of rooting an almost infinite number of Android devices with Framaroot, an Android app. Even though that app was dead-simple and didn’t even require a PC, it still had some little flaws and also didn’t support a small number of phones. Well a new app offers to do the same thing i.e root your Android phone in just one-click.

Rooting is perhaps the first step you should take after buying your Android phone or tablet, as it truly opens the possibility of customizing your droid. The method has been pretty difficult over ethe past few years but thanks to a few new apps, developers have made it really pretty straightforward. A new app “Kingo Android” even offers a universal method of one-click Android rooting and even unrooting it. Along with that, Kingo is compatible with upto 86 devices. These include devices from Google’s Nexus lineup, Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Sony. The full list can be found over at Kingo App.

Enough talking, lets move on to the process of using Kingo for rooting/unrooting your device,

    If i unroot my device in kingo does it turns back everything into the normal? I mean no trace? Like the warranty goes back? Please reply thanks

      Yes,
      If you completely restore the stock ROM and unroot the device your warranty will remain intact.
      Unrooting doesn’t recover your warranty, however, it just makes your device look like it was never rooted. So in a way, Yes, you will be able to claim warranty by following the above-listed method.
