This is for those who are unable to uninstall Newer KingRoot using old Methods like SuperSUMe Free and old terminal emulator method by Mr.W0lf and waiting to uninstall Newer Kingroot versions.... or want to remove Kingo ROOT in a simple way.

Features:-
-Removes Kingroot v5.x (tested on latest v5.3.7-197), Kingo ROOT
-Removes all files of King(o)root in whole device
-Installs SuperSU-v2.82-SR5 to /system without custom-recovery and force system even on 6.0+
-No need of manual updating of su binary
-Installs latest Busybox to /system/xbin

Requirements:-
==> Terminal Emulator
==> Below attached ZIP

Procedure:-

To uninstall completely the script deletes files multiple times.
Optionally Untick KingRoot in Settings App->Security->Device administrators->KingRoot

Method 1:-

1.Make a folder with name mrw in internal storage
Extract this zip in that mrw folder

2.Download Terminal Emulator and run following commands

Bash:
su
sh  /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
3.After succeeded with Green text type following

Bash:
sh  /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
After this, your device will reboot by installing SuperSU
If your device not rebooted, then try executing root.sh for 5 times...
If still not rebooted then try other method

4.After booted open Terminal Emulator app and type following

Bash:
su

Your device will reboot after that and rooted with SuperSU



Method 3 :- by using older version of KingRoot

2.Install older version of KingRoot eg v4.5.0 from apkmirror
and root with it

3.Follow Method 1



Method 4 :- by using Kingo ROOT instead of KingRoot

1. Probably your device will lose root of KingRoot after following above methods, so root your device with Kingo ROOT.

2.Follow Method 1



Method 5 :- by using Magisk Manager

Requires :- 1)Android Version greter than or equal to 5.0
2)Unlocked bootloader (else your device will soft brick)

What are another easy ways to replace?
Note:- Need unlocked bootloader

-Search Custom Recovery(TWRP, CWM, PhilZ , etc) for your particular mobile

-Flash that recovery.img with app like Flashify, Rashr, Kernel Adiutor, ROM Installer, Root Essentials etc

-Boot into custom recovery and Flash SuperSU.zip or Magisk.zip

-Reboot and Enjoy.....

Who use Kingoroot or superSU in 2019 just use magisk more simple and more efficiency...

Yes, but many old devices does not have custom recoveries and also many people who use those devices does not have a PC to flash patched boot.img... and also some devices does not have firmware available too....

Many device's bootloader also locked...
If we install magisk then it will definitely soft brick..
since on a bootloader locked mobile tweaking recovery or boot partition will get result like brick
Thats why some people stick with King(o) root.....

Update v5-test:-
This update does not have any zip.
All the files are embedded in script file.

Just place root.sh somewhere and execute.

Those files are extracted at the time of usage in execution.
If you want to extract only files to see what are they, then execute
Code:
root.sh -x all
will extract files in working directory.

If you are a tester and want to test this, then see 2nd post for details.
