These are the instructions to download KingRoot Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb and install it on your device so you can start using applications like the Titanium backup app.
KingRoot does not require you to have the bootloader unlocked, nor does it unlock the bootloader for you during the rooting process. It’s for that reason that KingRoot is known as a soft root and can only run your applications that require root access. Anyone wanting to go on and flash a custom recovery like TWRP will need to unlock the bootloader first.
Downloading the KingRoot Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb application
- Enable the Unknown Sources option from your device settings by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources. Having the Unknown Sources option turned on means you can start installing applications from outside of the Google Play Store.
- Download the KingRoot APK either directly to your web browser on the smartphone or tablet and install it that way, or download it to the computer and copy the file over to the internal storage SD card. Those of you choosing to install it on the SD card will need a File Manager. You’ll also need to learn how to install APK files from your SD card so they are on your device as applications.
- Tap and open the KingRoot app icon from your app drawer.
- Tap on the large button you can see from the front page of the application that suggests it will root your device. (The text of the phrase can vary over time depending on what the developers choose to put there).
- Wait until the progress bar reaches 100% before touching any buttons. The app will give you a “success” message and a green tick on the display when it passes and is finished.
- Close the application and reboot your smartphone before you try to install any applications like the Greenify app.
You can learn how to unroot the device using the KingUser app if you want to delete the KingRoot app and have the device the same way it was running before you followed this guide.
