You can root the BLU Vivo XL smartphone to begin installing some custom kernels, custom ROMs if they require pre-rooted firmware to run, and gobs of apps from the Google Play Store and other third-party sources online. We suggest sticking to the app stores with the best security which is always going to the Google Play Store and the other large app stores like App Brain. Read reviews and check how many times an app has been downloaded before you install it on your device.
Here is the guide to root BLU Vivo XL smartphones:
Files You Need
- Download the KingRoot APK for the Vivo XL from this page.
- Rooting the BLU smartphone with the universal one-click app will void the warranty. Installing the KingRoot application on your BLU device will result in you getting three new apps from your app drawer. One of them comes under the same name as the tool, and the others are the KingMaster and KingUser. The KingUser is the app you want to enter if you want to unroot the BLU device at a later stage. It’s the equivalent of SuperSU to this rooting method. By successfully unrooting and removing the KingUser, you are getting the warranty working again.
- Sometimes you only get one KingRoot app. If you only see the one app from your app drawer, you can tap to open the KingRoot app and you will see the uninstall option from the main screen. This is often the newest versions of the KingRoot tool.
- Those of you who do not have any success rooting with the app on your device can install the desktop version instead. You can find the desktop version available for Windows operating systems only. You can download it from the official KingRoot website which is http://kingroot.net.
Rooting the BLU Vivo XL
- Download the KingRoot APK file to the computer and drag it over to the desktop from its default download location.
- Enable the OEM Unlocking option from your Blu’s settings by tapping on the Menu > Settings > Developer Options > OEM Unlock.
- Connect the BLU Vivo XL smartphone to the computer using the USB cable.
- Copy the KingRoot APK to your Vivo XL’s internal storage SD card.
- Unplug the BLU smartphone from the computer once the universal one-click rooting app is on your SD card.
- Open a File Manager and install the app on your BLU handset.
- Open the KingRoot application from your BLU’s app drawer.
- Tap on the Root button from the apps main page and it will start rooting your device.
- Now you can see the progress bar wrapping around the display; wait until it reaches 100% before exiting the app.
Reboot your BLU smartphone and head over to the Google Play Store where you should install the basic root checker app. That same basic root checker app will now check if the above guide did indeed work for your BLU smartphone. All reports thus far suggest that it does.
