For a lot of more obscure Android phones, that don't really have dev interest, sometimes your only root option is KingRoot - but then you are stuck with what is essentially unremovable malware on your phone (KingRoot itself)

I found an obscure app in the Play Store called mod edit: app name removed and was so frustrated with KingRoot being impossible to remove, that I gave it a try.
Well this app made short work of killing off KingRoot for good, and replaced root control over to SuperSU - woohoo!

It's been months now and the KingRoot malware never came back from the dead!
