KingRoot now installs a ton of Adware on your device
KingRoot takes over your lock screen now and splatters ads on it
KingRoot's Uninstall does NOT remove everything they have modified on your device
SuperSU replace method does NOT remove everything they put on it either
KingRoot intentionally ads multiple binary files to your /system/bin folder that have nothing to do with their rooting method and are even back dating them to try and hide them
AVG has reported this and even warns of possible personal information gathering, that is NOT just a warning of rooting exploits
KingRoot has now included a Wifi option within their latest version under tools, what do you think they are gathering there ?
I have been trying to tell users for a long time that they are up to no good and they have even lied saying they tried to contact me to work with me on what they refer to as my app doing a malicious removal of their tool. That is completely incorrect... They have NEVER tried to contact me about this. They did try and ask my to stop and I told them once they allowed SupeSU to cleanly take over their root and they allowed all traces of their program to be replaced/removed I would then do it, but they never have adhered to any of that.
You the user have been warned and my conscious has been cleared. Install this at your own risk. They even went as far as trying to prevent my program from gaining root, why ? Because it will in fact remove all traces of their program including their custom binaries they have added, etc.. Now, keep in mind, they have many binaries that they add, depending on the device, but I do my best to catch them.
KingRoot, you want all of this to stop ? Then comply with the request of all the users and myself to remove EVERY file modification you have made to their device and allow replacement of your tools with whatever the user desires, cleanly.. You want to make it a paid app for you to get compensation for your time ? Fine, but get rid of all this Adware and malicious take over you have done to their device.
Let all the people speak now. It is your device and your choice of what you want to see, I am just one voice of many...

(Sony devices, or at least the majority, you are in a bad spot, because you are rooted, but try and mount your /system into (r/w) mode... Probably not going to happen unless you load a kernel module to allow this. Otherwise you are in a write-protected mode and can only factory restore your device to get rid of it.)
