Hi guys.
OK so after doing research I decided to try the kingo root method.
All was going fine but when it asked me for the root permission on the adb shell the adb shell did not register my touch on the grant button.
Then stopped.
Kingo says root failed.
However I have root access.
The only problem is that my ui stops when I reboot. And backround goes blue. Everything seems to work but my play store does not let me download apps intermittently. It will download it in the stores download meter then the play store "stops".
If anyone has some insight it would be greatly appreciated...

Try what @RErick said first. Open Superuser and update it.

If you're still having issues try unrooting with kingo or superuser, then re-root with kingo again.

And next time please make your thread topic based more on YOUR issue. Kingo is NOT unstable like your title mentions. "I messed up rooting" fits this description better!

Touch wiz FCing. Google play FCing.
What causes this issue. If I factory reset my phone will I lose root? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

No you will not loose root access if you do a factory reset. You'll probably need to download supersu again though.

Have you removed or frozen any apps since you rooted? Or are you still experiencing issues since the botched root attempt? If you did delete system files without a backup, a factory reset won't replace or fix them. It's possible a factory reset might fix some force closings, and worth a shot.

So what's happening when you experiencing these force closes? What tasks are you performing when the error occurs? Are you using any home replacement apps, or launchers like Apex, Nova, Go Launcher, etc....? I was experiencing system UI force closes with apex until I wiped apex's data and cache.

No deleted system apps. No launchers. When rebooting ui FCing. When I try to download app from market FCing. Now market won't even open. It force closes immediately.
