These are the instructions to download the KingRoot application that roots Android 3.2.3 Honeycomb operating systems.

KingRoot is the name of the one-click rooting app that is universal and works on many manufacturers. Most notably to date, the brands KingRoot works with are Samsung, Motorola, Huawei, LG, Sony, Blu, Lenovo and ZTE. However, since those days, the KingRoot tool has started working on many more devices from other manufacturers.


KingRoot is called a “soft root” by the people at XDA Developers because it does not require you bootloader to be unlocked. Furthermore, it does not unlock your bootloader during the rooting procedure either. That means if you are planning on installing a custom recovery after rooting, you will need to find out if your device needs the bootloader unlocked. Most smartphones and tablets with the official TWRP Recovery available need the bootloader unlocked before you can install TWRP otherwise you risk bricking the device.

As for the KingRoot app itself, you cannot brick your device by installing the app. If there is no working rooting method for your device, the KingRoot app will just give you the fail message and you can delete it later. It will never brick down your device while it is rooting the device either. Additionally, the KingRoot app comes with an easy option to unroot your device and return to the stock Android you are running at the moment.
