These are the instructions to download the KingRoot application to root devices running on Android 3.2.6 Honeycomb operating systems.

You should know that the KingRoot universal one-click rooting tool does not require a bootloader to be unlocked, and it doesn’t unlock the bootloader during the rooting process. That means your Android will still have the bootloader locked when you complete this guide. Keep that in mind for when you try to install a custom recovery on the device. Some manufacturers require you to unlock the bootloader before you can install a custom recovery and attempt to install a custom recovery with a locked bootloader could brick your device.


Most manufacturers of smartphones and tablets do not allow for any rooting and therefore your warranty will be void by following this guides. There are occasional exceptions to that list according to reports.
