1.Get utoo file
2.Go into settings>backup & reset>recovery mode.
3.Once in recovery mode find utoo file whether it is in the ext storage or internal storage. You can navigate using the volume up button and select using the power button
4. Select the utoo file.
5.Wait for utoo root file to complete installation
6.After installation reboot system.
7.After reboot open up supersu and update binary.
8.Update supersu using playstore.
9.Open supersu and if you have not bought supersu pro (you should btw), click enable pro features and because chainfire is awesome he basically gave everyone pro features and stuff.
10.Enjoy Root

Question I did this, it worked, mostly.
I did this method.
It worked, sort of...
I was able to get root on my tiny Kurio 4s.
There were some problems though.
Several apps stopped working properly.
The keyboard kept stopping and restarting.
The loader did as well, but did not restart.
I could not use the keyboard to input.

Lucky for me I still had the stock upgrade apk in my system.
I was able to restart in recovery mode and run the upgrade.
That reset everything to factory new.
Then I had to go through the whole catalog of updates...
That took forever.

So, what I want to know is...
Has anyone else done this?
And it's there a more up to date root method I can use on my K4s?

All the other posts on this device are old.

P.s. towelroot does not work on 4.2.2
P.p.s framaroot does not work either.

Thumbs up tried again...
Ok, I tried the utoo zip again.
This time (so far) I have not had any issues with misbehaving apps.

At first root checker kept saying that I did not have root.
But after I rebooted, I changed some SU settings and now root check reports that I have root!

ES3 File explorer has root access as does ES startup manager..

Hooray! Successful root on my Kurio 4s touch!

Thank you.
