How To Fix KingRoot Tool Not Working (Rooting) Android Devices

If KingRoot is not working on your Android phone, you have come to the right place. We will be discussing a few solutions to this problem and how to make KingRoot tool work on your phone and grant root access. KingRoot is relatively a new tool which can root a large number of Android devices in an instant directly from the phone without using your computer.

KingRoot developers found an exploit in the Android platform code, which allowed them to create the tool as a normal application to allow users to root their devices by clicking just a button.

If you haven’t rooted your phone already, check out the guide on how to root Samsung Galaxy and other Android devices using KingRoot. There is also a video if you are interested. Even though the app works on most devices, a few users have been unable to root their devices, because the tool shows different warnings like ‘No strategy found’, Root strategy unavailable no strategy now’ or it stops at 20% or 50% and then reboots.

There are a few reasons for this to happen. Most of the time it has to do with the firmware your phone has. If you have recently just updated the firmware version, there is a chance that the update might have patched the exploit. If the exploit is patched, KingRoot tool will be unable to root the phone.

Also, with new releases of firmware updates, the team behind KingRoot works hard to provide frequent app updates to support all firmware versions. If the tool stops at 20% or 50% and then it reboots, connect to the internet. Sometimes the tool needs internet to properly root your phone.

In conclusion:

  • Downgrade to an older firmware version
  • Use the latest version of KingRoot possible
  • Connect to the internet

These solutions have worked for a number of users who continuously have had problems rooting their devices. If you have any other suggestions, let us know in the comments below!


  1. Running KingRoot on my LGE LGMS323 (kot49i.ms32310c) 4.4.2 Optimus L70.failed to root although it appeared to indicate to me that it was successful. Root Checker says it is not rooted.

    I would like to remove all the KingRoot files and if I decide I want to proceed with another tool option I may go with the SuperSU type setup.

    Since KingRoot failed to root and did install most or all of it’s files I am not sure of the ramifications of what I am left with and am looking for the simplest solution to getting the phone back to the way it was before I attempted this. For all I know that may be a simple task as I’m a noob at all this.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I am currently using Samsung Tab 3 SM-T211 and failed to root my device using Kingroot.
    1. My device has never been upgraded its firmware. Currently using the 4.4.2 version.
    2. I have connected to the Internet while rooting.
    3. I have installed the latest ver of Kingroot (8.0)

    Although I have tried all above to root my device but it keep failing. It says that “root access is unavailable”. Do help me, thank you.

  3. Flashed MM firmware and I lost root. Running HTC M8 can’t do the traditional way of rooting because my charge port on phone is not working correctly. When will new King Root update be out?

  4. I’m using Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo (SM-G903F) Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It does not work to root with KingRoot, so I’m gonna try CF Auto Root.

  5. Isn’t this a impasse; we cannot root because it is patched, so we downgrade, then if we root, we cannot upgrade – so whats the point of even downgrading ?

    Whats the deal with this load of misinformation floating around like this article implies
