Won't this work instead?
Install SuperSU (I used SuperSU Pro) from the play store and grant it superuser access. When prompted, install updated su binary with the normal mode. Once installed successfully, uninstall Kingoroot and Superuser app. Reboot.

That's what I did on an android 6.0 headunit I have and seems to work. But maybe there is a benefit of avoiding kingoroot completely?

This did not work for me on 4.1.2-5.1.1. SuperSU always say Install failed no matter how many times i tried. That's why i made this guide.

Strange. Worked for me. Guess I'm lucky.

Didn't​ work for thousands of us! Maybe you updated SuperSU binaries via custom recovery?

Phone needs to be rooted in order to replace, right?

Thanks for the detailed post. I once ran across this problem and this will definitely help me with other devices.

I wish, but I'm using an android mtcd px5 head unit and no one has a custom recovery for it..
I was really just suggesting as an option to try as it worked for me and less complicated.. But guess it's only this device that allowed it..
