By the way, 1 post count member coming here defending Kingo. See my comment above. Now you look shady to me too.

LOL and why would I care what you think of me? You're nobody.

We're just writing about our opinions here. I don't care who follows mine or not - I just wrote my experience (which is better than assuming or theorizing or quoting other nobodies I guess).

Probably the easiest way to get malware on your device is to use a rooting tool as the vector. I am sure the tool itself roots your device successfully, and I have no doubt that they are also getting something in return. Use at your own risk, but I would stay far, far away.

Just wnted to give my experience with this root meathod. I tried it on my GT-N5110 and it worked fine. But when I had a soft brick, all my fault, I had issues trying to use the fine toolbox i bought here on XDA for my tablet. I managed to get it backto stock and everything up and running so I could flash custom roms once more but Kingo went kicking and screeming. I did not use that meathod to root my tablet this time. I used Saferoot.

Hi, what does "but Kingo went kicking and screeming" mean in the previous post? Just wondering.

Also, I just wanted to give my experience with this root method as well. I used Kingo to root my GT-N5110 and it worked perfectly.
