Hello, may I ask you from where you downloaded the .apk? Are you sure that it's "KingO Root" and not "King root"?

Thanks, I've updated the main post, waiting to test another method (https://www.xda-developers.com/root/) and to get a dedicated P2 section on XDA...

Hi kiselina777, I too am searching for a root method that doesn't require unlocking the bootloader (most because of the 14 day wait), have you had any luck in finding one?
