If you was one of those who root their devices by using KingRoot App and would like to remove kinguser and related files, you can replace it with the well known SuperSU.
Here's a small script to remove Chinese kingruser, all related files and folders, and install SuperSU.
This script will do all the work for you without using PC, just by terminal, first of all, thanks to chainfire for his SuperSU files.

Before starting :
Download and install Terminal emulator appTerminal emulator app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roidterm&hl=en

Download and unzip "Replace_Kingroot_With_SuperSU.zip
http://tiny.cc/fo78zx

Steps :
Send the extracted folder "mrw" to the internal storage of your device and make sure that this folder contains 4 files

Open Terminal emulator and type :
"Su" (without "")

Allow root permission
Type :
" sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh" (without "" , notice there's space between sh /sdcard.)
It might display some error, but wait for 30-40 seconds and at the end it will launch supersu or open supersu manually.
Update su binary normal, then reboot.
Done !

I ran the script and it went thru to installing Super Su but I lost root and couldn't update binaries. I redownloaded King Root and opened it and I instantly had root back. Are there other files that King Root has installed that don't allow this script to work. If you have any insight it wouldbe appreciated. I know I am on a different phone but script seems to work up to a point. ZTE Z820 Android 5.1 Thanks

I can confirm this method works on Lenovo Vibe X2 running Android 5.0. New Kingroot 4.5, the one with crown icon, successfully replaced by SuperSU while root status remain intact. A process crashed upon Kingroot removal, however restart seemed to get rid of the problem.

May I ask did you have busybox already downloaded and installed? I see that the zip contains busybox as one of the actions of the script. Maybe that's why it didn't work for me?? Also I have Kingroot 4.9.2 and I'm thinking that is the main reason the script fails for me.

I had KingRoot v.4.85, on a KitKat 4.4.
The script didn't work, so I plug the phone and connected to the computer, opened a console, executed the adb shell command and start to give each of the script commands manually one by one.
The failure was at pm uninstall com.kingroot.kinguser (com.kingroot.RushRoot wasn't installed anyway).
The packet manager wasn't able to uninstall Kingroot. I had to uninstall manually using the phone
Code:
H:\Development\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20140702\sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
[email protected]_z10:/ $ su
[email protected]_z10:/ # mount -o rw,remount /system
[email protected]_z10:/ # am kill com.kingroot.RushRoot
[email protected]_z10:/ # pm uninstall com.kingroot.RushRoot
Failure
[email protected]_z10:/ # am kill com.kingroot.kinguser
[email protected]_z10:/ # pm uninstall com.kingroot.kinguser
Failure
In the end the replacement was successful

I have rooted my phone (Android 5.1) with kingroot 4.8.0, I also want to remove KingRoot and replace it with supersu.
I plan to execute the script line by line via an ssh session as root on my phone.
finally how have you uninstalled Kingroot manually ?

I modified the script in this way:
After
Code:
pm uninstall com.kingroot.kinguser
I've added
Code:
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.buak.Link2SD/.Link2SD
echo "Press any key to continue"
read typedkeys
The first of the three added rows launches Link2SD app (that I've installed on my phone since I rooted it); the last line pause the script execution.
I used Link2SD to uninstall Kingroot.

Anyway I have to say that, even though the installation of SuperSU seems completed without errors, the apps that asks for root permissions didn't receive the answer from SuperSU and they aren't granted root permission, so... it still doesn't work.

1. clean MICROMAX a311
2. kingoroot KingRootSetup_v3.2.0.1129 (i can upload it if you want)
3. Supersume.apk {MUST BE VERSION 6.4} (application used to change from kingroot to supersu)

note -- Pay attention to versions,messing with them will not allow you to achieve target.

1. install kingrootsetup on pc(must have internet connection to work)
2. connect ur phone with ADB enabled from developers option
3. root ur phone by following on screen instructions...
4. after rooting,install supersume on phone
