I just checked support list, and we do support ZTE Blade Apex2. Can you provide some details about your situation?

Are you sure you support it for this version? GEN_EU_P892E10V1.0.0B02, its update.zip is found in the Finland downloads for the Apex2 in the ztedevice.com -> support -> downloads section (I can not link URLs in this forum)

I have run Kingroot latest and several other similar programs and they do not root it.

It just goes to reboot and then it's not rooted

edit: Some versions of it seem to be able to first be turned into the Spanish "Orange" version of the android build and then be rooted with popular tools, but this particular version seem to be bootloader locked.

Is there development for the Verizon Galaxy Note 4? The AT&T version posted doesn't seem to work for the verizon variant. The process will complete to obtain root access (on shipped firmware) however even the Kinguser app won't get permissions to remove system applications.

Hi guys. So, I have successfully rooted my stock 4.4.2 Acer Liquid Z500.
It doesn't show any error messages, but I'm wondering if I can remove the KingUser app, because it doesn't show any option for doing it.

Doesn't work on the ZTE whirl 2 z667g. Gets stuck in JTAG mode or something when it tries to reboot.

Really appreciate you guys work on this app. Those of us with the ZTE Zmax have been having mixed success with the 4.0 version, fighting it every step of the way.
Could you provide some insight as to where this exploit is happening? I have personally got root from KingRoot 4 times now, but it refuses to do so again. (lost root while testing for development)

Those of us with the Z970 are only achieving root success after 30 tries and more (mostly more, way more). I am up to almost 100 on my recent attempts.
We have tried all sorts of ideas and methods to improve success rates. It seems to be VERY hit or miss.
At my current position, it seems as if the KingRoot app is stuck in a perpetual loop. I am getting the same results every time now. Reboots at the same times, and fails almost always at 70%. This was not the case when I obtained root the 4 times before. The results were always varying.

Please let us know if there is a way to log the progress of the app so we can figure out where root is being obtained. If not to only help the users, but also as debugging info for future development of the KingRoot app.

Best regards,

Generally, Root will not ruin your device, we just install Su and Kinguser into your system according to system exploit. For note4, I guess you need to try desktop version in final. That's maybe flash third recovery or just do some fix on your stock recovery. It really depends on your ROM detail. We can not sure if work would going well in AT&T model, but we have success experience in root note4. May be you need root with app three to four times then try desktop several times. Good luck, hope kingroot working well:)

    1. Rooting carries a risk and may void your device's warranty.
    2. Google Security may block the installation of Kingroot. Either choose to "Install Anyway" or disable your internet connection to continue.
    3. There is both an Android version and a PC version available. Please be aware that the PC version may flash a third party recovery onto your device.
    4. In case Purify isn't something you need, it can be easily removed.
    5. If you uninstall KingRoot, you will lose root access. Reinstalling and re-rooting should be a simple process, however.
    6. While you certainly can replace KingRoot with SuperSU, we can't guarantee success.

    More information can be found below.


    KingRoot is an amazing tool for anyone wants to obtain root. Whether you don't have enough experience for more advanced methods (or there are no other methods available), or you prefer a one-click solution, KingRoot is here for you. It's also completely FREE to use!
    While rooting with Kingroot, the most suitable root strategy will be deployed from cloud. This method ensures your device will be rooted, if a strategy is available. Most of our supported devices boast a success rate higher than 60%!



    Download KingRoot 5.3.7

    MD5 Hash:

    Get KingRoot PC in English

    Visit Purify

    If installed, Purify will help your device run faster, cooler and longer by killing resource-hogging background apps and preventing them from auto-starting. There is also a feature to help you organize and archive your notifications. Go try it out.

    Many of Purify's features require root. However, there are still plenty of things it can do if root is not available.

    Download Purify on Google Play



    What's Installed

    • SU Binary -- This is required to obtain superuser (root) access. It's generally installed to /system/xbin.
    • Purify -- You can find more information about this in the downloads section. It will be installed to /data/app/.

    PC Version >>> Direct Download
    The PC version of KingRoot is more powerful than the Android version. If the mobile app isn't able to root your device, you may have more luck with this, especially if you own a Samsung device.

    If there is no available root strategy for your device
    Be patient! We are working to ensure as many devices as possible can enjoy root. If our app fails on your device, please use the in-app request system (which is automatic in later releases). Posting here won't speed the process up or give you special treatment. Success/failure reports are also automatic, so there's no need to post here about those, either.


    Information Collection
    There is some discomfort about KingRoot's data collection, but there's nothing to worry about.

    If you are afraid we're taking your IMEI to use it to make a counterfeit phone, don't be. We have no interest or knowledge in that matter.

    Data collection is for more accurate deployment of available root strategies. We need to get some information about your device and the software running on it in order to provide you with the most successful root strategy we have for you.

    While we do collect your IMEI, it is encrypted in transit, and only used to accurately calculate the success rate of our root strategies.

    This information is not saved on our servers; it just isn't worth the trouble. We have a lot of users downloading and using our app. To host all that information, we'd need to spend large sums of money for server space, and that just isn't practical for a free service.

    Q: Why KingRoot can not be removed ?!
    A: This situation always happened on some devices with system protection mechanism such as SONY, HUAWEI and so on. Sometimes, root strategy only can close these system protection mechanism temporarily during root process. That's why KingRoot can be installed. However, after root finished or device reboot, system protection mechanism will enable again. After that, system can not be mounted. That's why KingRoot can not be removed.

    Q: What can I do if KingRoot can not be removed ?!
    A: If you can not remove KingRoot , please try to force stop KingRoot, clear data of it and root device with KingRoot again. Then unroot it immediately.

    Q: All questions about SuperSu !
    A: Please click here for answer.

    Q: How to improve root success rate (Especially for ZTE Zmax)?
    A: Click here for answer please

    Q: Why the desktop version can be better?? And which CUSTOM RECOVERY does it install?? Will it trig KNOX??
    A: Because of desktop version not depends on system exploit but to flash a Rom with Su binary, it's more easily and violent. CUSTOM RECOVERY includes CWN and some self made recovery which developed by ourselves or our partner teams. And we have a reason to believe that desktop version will trig KNOX

    Q: Does KingRoot on Samsung trig Knox flag to 0x1?
    A: Click here for answer please

    Q: Can KingRoot root the phone with wi-fi and mobile data turned off?
    A: No, it downloads the best exploit for the device, on the fly

    Q: Which permissions does this app exactly ask ?
    A: Permissions of KingRoot required all can be seen when you install it. We need so many permissions because some root solution need to be run on them.

    Q: What is the benefit of paying coders for support if the app is free?
    A: We sponsored by one of the biggest IT company of China, lots app of them need to get root access through us.

    Q: How to replace KingRoot with SuperSu?
    A: Click here for answer please(I'm not sure it can work perfectly and may be cause some unknown errors)

    Statement: Why KingUser need internet connection and upload device information

    Lots users don’t know what information KingUser upload what they are used for. Hence, we want to have an official statement here to tell users what happened in the end. Everyone can find what information we upload in INFORMATION COLLECTION section on our home page of XDA thread. We hope everyone can see it first. This statement will explain how we use these information.

    Specifically, we use these information to enhance user experience of KingRoot and help us improve ability, algorithm and technical of KingRoot. What’s more, information we collected will help people who have no idea with root but harassed by pre-installed and auto start apps as well, especially in Asia and Africa.

    We will explain more details below.

    Firstly, we collect information for calculating root strategy success rate and device adaption rate, in order to rank what device we should research priority. Because of limited recourse and people, we can’t research all device at same time. We will try to root device which have the most failed count or most submit count of adaption request. We want to help most people priority. The form below is a result of calculation which based on information we collected.


    Secondly, we dedicate to build the users vote system for all apps, in order to fulfil system security demand of users. For example, many users don’t what apps should be granted root access when they first use it. We want to help them through our users vote system.

    Specifically, you will vote for an app when you choose agree or deny to grant it root access. Through big data analysis, we will find out which app is reliable and which one is not even dangerous. That’s why you can find “X% users allowed” during authorization process. You help us build this system and this system will help you and other users in the end.


    Finally, King Studio solemnly declare here, we will never give these information to any third party, never use these information for political usage, never sell them to any other business organizations and never harm rights of users.

    We appreciate your support and understanding and we will never have progress if without you. Thank you very much!
