The KingRoot universal one-click rooting tool is available to download for devices running Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Once you install the KingRoot APK and use it as an application on your device, you will install a new SU Binary, King User and King Master. The King user is the app you want to get access to on the device if you want to unroot the device, remove system apps and disable the auto-start of apps. The King Master archives notifications, improves the system performance and makes the hibernation app automatic.

Downloading the KingRoot APK to work on Android 3.2 Honeycomb is just like any other KingRoot app. You can find the full guide to get it on your device at the bottom of the page. Furthermore, we have included the full list of compatible devices.


Before starting, you should understand that once you do get access to the root file system using the guide, you can then go on to install a custom recovery, flashing custom ROMs, taking NANDroid backups, installing a custom kernel, install additional apps from the Google Play Store which require root access to operate and overclock the device.

An example of a custom recovery you might wish to install is CWM recovery or TWRP recovery. The other options some people prefer to use is the Philz touch recovery, since it is the touch version of ClockworkMod. The choices of custom ROMs you can then go on to install will depend on the ROMS that are available for your device. Since we cannot see which devices you have, that’s impossible for us to see. However, there are many resources out there for you to check out what custom ROMs are available to install on your device. You we also made many lists of the ‘Best Of’ ROMs available for a particular handset. You can use out search box to find those.
