K5 Note cannot be rooted in Marshmallow(6.0) as of now because marshmallow rooting needs installation of custom recovery first, and no one has yet ported a custom recovery (TWRP CWM etc) for k5note. And porting custom recovery for k5note seems hard too cause the stock firmware has image check parameter, It doesn't flash just any customized image using SP Root tools.
However if you haven't updated it yet to marshmallow, It can be rooted when it is still in Android 5.1 Lollipop by using kingroot 4.50. , and then using Super Sume.
