How To Root Galaxy Devices With KingRoot Tool APK (One-Click)

Samsung devices have always been easy to root. Unlocked bootloaders have allowed developers to find various ways of rooting Samsung Galaxy devices. If you have tried rooting your Samsung phone, you have probably heard about CF-Auto-Root, the popular rooting tool created by Chainfire.

CF-Auto-Root is the most popular method of rooting the majority of Samsung Galaxy devices. The only downside of this method is that it requires a PC. If you don’t have a computer, you cannot root your Samsung phone. Luckily, recently found exploits and methods have made it possible to root the majority of Samsung Galaxy devices without having to use a PC. These are one-click tools that are installed on the phone, doing everything from the device without requiring a PC.

KingRoot is the latest tool released by “Kingxteam”. It is a one-click tool which doesn’t require a PC. It is installed as a normal application on the phone. Unlike other tools, KingRoot supports a huge number of Galaxy devices.

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F)
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500 & GT-I9505)
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) & S3 Neo
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9000)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (N7100)

This is only a small list of all supported devices. Each variant of a phone, for example Galaxy S6 variants like SM-G9208, G9200 and more are all supported. KingRoot can root all devices running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.1 & 4.2 & 4.3 Jelly Bean, 4.4 KitKat and 5.0 Lollipop.

The best thing is that KingRoot does not trip KNOX. This means that the warranty stays intact and KNOX counter stays at 0x0.

  1. I am using KingRoot V4.5.0
    Phone specifications
    Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500

    It is giving me an error “Root strategy unavailable”.

  2. Is not working on my sch-i545 galaxy s4. definitely triggers knox. But the phone is 3 years old so I don’t care anymore. I want it rooted. Please help.

  3. Mm well am gonna give this a try or should I say another try……. I used the king root app a year ago now on my Note 3 and it couldn’t have been easier. Then 3 or 4 months later on my Note 4 which didn’t work but more importantly didn’t do it any harm by trying. Did that all on my own by dropping it and cracking the screen wide open ??

    Now best part of a year later I came across an article on using King root and figured I might as well have a crack at my S7 Edge and this crappy S5 Neo I’m using right now ??
