* Update 6.3*

Hey..

New here... need some help.. hope i am right to post here...

I have the KF, never been rooted, just updated to 6.3

Now i downloaded KF utility 0.9.4 and installed drivers

My KF now shows up as Android ohone on the Device manger.

Now to root, do i just run the KF utility and choose option 2, ie. Permanent root with Superuser

and later option 5 to instal TWRP???

Or are there some steps that i am missing?
I just cant find a step by step guide for this latest version of KF Utility with superuser.

Any help is totally appreciated.
Thanks

I hope you have got it by now. I would do the option 2 and then do option 5. But I am as much as a newbie as I can be. So you might be better off hoping someone else comes on here and lets you know.
