Kingroot 4.x and 5.x DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE! The Bluestacks team patched root exploit in their kernel to make Pokemon GO work with Bluestacks but Pokemon GO no longer work after 2 days. They really wasted their time.

Since version 0.9.0, I discovered an exploit to root Bluestacks (we can call it a semi-root) which allow you to grant root access without Kingroot and SuperSU, but the /system partition is Write-protected (R/O) and Kingroot wasn't able to root Bluestacks.
You can access /data without any problem. In following releases, the write-protection in /system partition has been removed, which means Bluestacks is pre-rooted (Exploit).

Without Superuser, some apps which requires Root permissions may not work thinking your device is unrooted.

Forget the BS-Multi-Tool and BSeasy, and the modded offline installer which have crappy Galaxy S4 settings app, and bloatwares. Rooting the Bluestacks now takes only 10 seconds to root and it doesn't need any external PC softwares!

If you don't like Kingroot, simply don't root to keep semi-root, or switch to SuperSU.

PLEASE READ!!! DO NOT TRY TO ROOT BLUESTACKS WITH SUPERSU APP. YOU WILL LOSE ROOT PERMISSIONS, INCLUDING LOSS OF SEMI-ROOT EXPLOIT.

Download Bluestacks 2 at: http://www.bluestacks.com/

Don't like Bluestacks 2? Download classic Bluestacks instead: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...cks_App_Player

LET'S ROOT THE BLUESTACKS!

Youtube video Tutorial about how to Root Bluestacks 2: https://youtu.be/Ltj6wFFQ36k
If you do have normal version of Bluestacks instead, take a look here: https://youtu.be/oanPUahsn9Q

1. Launch Bluestacks



2. Download Kingroot app for Android from here: http://www.kingroot.net/?myLocale=en_US
(NOTE: Some browsers blocks Kingroot from downloading. Add it to the whitelist, to prevent any issues)

3. Double-click on the APK file to install the app into the Bluestacks





4. You'll see the Kingroot app in the app drawer, open it.



5. Tap on "Root status failed" to begin the rooting process



6. Rooting will take 5-10 SECONDS! After rooting, you will see a message like this:



7. That's it. Bluestacks is now rooted.

IMPORTANT. Do not open any app which asks you to restart the device. Pressing restart will UNROOT Bluestacks and the good hidden semi-root exploit will be GONE FOREVER until you reinstall Bluestacks.

8. Test root access on any apps to see if it works.



9. Close the Bluestacks, and reboot your computer to take effect.

Now enjoy your 100% full root access on Bluestacks. You can finally use GameGuardian on Bluestacks to hack any offline games without the use Cheat Engine or similar external softwares!

Yeah, and i noticed that Kingroot have permission to use camera, pair with Bluetooth, etc... KingRoot isn't replying to my email after 2015 so i think they are doing something illegal

The APK has 8MB, unpacked it has 12MB, that is a huge app IMO for something so simple as rooting,
Also it requests every single Android's permissions, I don't see the point for that.

I actually used this method to root bluestacks on my PC. Worked perfectly. Was able to use gameguardian to modify some games.
