I write from Germany and I've read this HERE. Is this true? Is Kingo root really dangerous? Is there any alternative root for LG G Pad?
I can confirm that something unknown/suspicious is being uploaded to your PC on running the android root.exe file. The IP address (hex) corresponds to a website/location in ZH (China) (whois). My antivirus and firewall blocked it out, and the programme halted on my PC, and I couldn't root my mom's New Samsung galaxy trend duos. I uninstalled the app & thank goodness I was running the file sandboxed.....caveat emptor everyone......
Dead Cookies leave no trails...
Bumping this thread to clear some things up:
The tool isn't allowed on the forums right now, we're still working out some issues with them. Biggest issue being sending sensitive data unencrypted to their servers in China and grabbing the IMEI with no apparent reason. When that is solved the whole issue will be reassessed.
Thread closed. (for now)
Rooting isn't the problem. This works fine. I know. But what is with grabbing/spy and other sensitive data? That's the question. I've read that personal data be spied by a china server.
Please read my link.
Two quotes from my link:
I think this tool Kingo Root is very risky.
"hope" is too uncertain for me. And similar is not the same. I think that doesn't work fine. Or do you 100% know that it works?
Sorry, I'm here for the first time and I doesn't know that with Q&A. But now I know it.
And sorry for my english. Ist not the best. I know
It does work, if you look here you will see that a lot of people had success with it.
