Can you post links to the apps you used to block KingRoot? Also details for configuring them to do so? I realize I'm asking a lot, no worries if you'd prefer not to. I'll try to figure out.
no links, available in google playstore:
Network Connections - Anit Spy Mobile
- displays ip connections, destinations, whois details and maps for all internet connecting apps and services.
- tapping the ip once displays the whois info tapping the ip again copies the ip to the clipboard
- will help you get a handle on all app and services not just kingroot
Hosts Editor - Nilhcem
- the host file basically an ip router
- allows you to route a domain name to an internal ip if your setting up a web server
- or route and outbound ip to an internal ip (loopback) or to a different external ip.
You just need to know the destination ip which is why you need to monitor each app or services outgoing ip connections. This way you may wish to allow some connections and block others. like a firewall.
The difference is with a firewall you can create a inbound / outbound rules to apply globally or to a specific app or service. The host file on the other hand is not selective any app or service that tries to connect to the ip
you add the the host file will be re-routed.
host file rules:
- # = comment so first active line should be 127.0.0.1 localhost un commented
- next line should contain the ip you wish to block, can be any destination you dont wont connecting:
#internal ip is 127.0.0.1 destination is localhost (your computers local loopback)
you could just install a firewall like netguard or adguard to block Kingroot and blacklist outbound ip's that way..
setup is very simple most have good documentation.
