Root Android Lollipop Phones In One Click

Rooting is what first comes to our mind after buying a new Android phone, which ofcourse is kind of necessary for many. Default settings including personalization and customization that comes with the device may not be satisfying and configurable (or tweakable) due to restrictions set by manufacturers, and that's where ROOT proves to be more important.

I asked myself, why do people strive so hard and takes too much risk just to root their Android phones when Google is indeed working hard to meet the requirement of the people? The answer that came to my mind was because people want something different, you can't expect them to stick with one setting, one interface, one menu, one icon, one notification bar for a lifetime. They want something new because as time goes on the new becomes old and everything looks like shit. It's like wearing same cloth everyday.

Another reason is because some people (like I) don't like to be limited, they want freedom to do whatever they want and you can't get that without ROOT. Also, Android phone can be further enhanced which includes increasing battery life, using custom ROMs and recovery, and deleting bloatwares that ain't needed, but all of these also requires ROOT. However, things are not getting easier with each update release. While rooting previous Android versions (Froyo, Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat) are now as easy as cutting a cake with a knife, the newly released Android version which is Android 5.0, Android 5.1 Lollipop put a stunning face to ROOT.

There is no general method for rooting Android Lollipop device since its existence and that's not putting smile on many peoples face. However, we have a good news to announce for Android users around the world. A Chinese team (more like a firm) known as Kingroot has released a new revolutionary one click root apps that works on almost all Android 5.0 Lollipop and Android 5.1 Lollipop smartphones, an upgrade version of their previous release which is Kingroot 4.1.

The Kingroot 4.1 comes with a new interface and its capable of rooting recently released high-end Android Lollipop phones such as Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy A7, and Samsung Galaxy A5 in one click without PC. It can also root KitKat phones that are now running on Android Lollipop (5.0.x, 5.1.x) which includes Galaxy Note 4, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, Huawei Ascend Mate 7, Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, Samsung Galaxy S5, Lenovo K3 Note, Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, Sony Xperia Z2, Sony Xperia Z1 and many more.

Update (31-08-2015)

  2. Does your LG G3 still runs Android 4.4 KitKat? If yes, follow this steps -> http://www.ccnworldtech.com/2014/09/one-click-easiest-way-to-root-all-lg-g3.html

    But if you've upgraded to Android Lollipop, we'll write an article on how to go about it this week. Stay connected.

  4. @Ken Samsung Galaxy A5 (SM-A500F) running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is somehow off the list of phones that can be root for now, though 4.4.2 and 5.0.2 is on the list. We suggest you keep a watch on kingroot thread on XDA so you can know if your device is supported later on.

  10. You will first need to unlock your HTC Bootloader. You can use this "method". After then, try kingroot again. If it doesn't work, i'll suggest you use PC version or try this "one-click HTC root app".

    How do I root Techno c8 Camon? Tried the kingroot 4.1 version but it didn't work. Kindly assist on what to do.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Tecno Camon C8 cannot be root by any one-click root app out there. Manual method of rooting i.e flashing custom recovery zip then using recovery to flash supersu zip file, that's the only method that works for now.

  16. @Gregorio Liquid Z630 is still a new device, around two months old. No custom recovery and flashable zip file available for it yet, guess you have to wait a bit more. However, you can try kingoroot (mobile and pc version), its link is among those listed HERE. It might work for you.

  19. @Anonymous: You can root LG G2 D801 on Lollipop by downloading and installing this "software" to your PC. Make sure you enable USB Debugging before connecting the phone to PC. Also, it'll be good to install LG drivers (google it) before proceeding in starting the rooting process.

  26. hello, huawei p8 lite (5.0.1) I try kingroot 4.6 with pc and without, but it don't work! Must I open bootloader first? An other easy way to root this device? thanks for support!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Anonymous: Root Genius easily work on Zero X506 on KitKat, you can learn more about it HERE. It "might" still work for you.

    N.B: If you're using the 2GB RAM/16GB storage version of Infinix Zero X506, the option above will not work. You will need to manually flash custom recovery and then flash supersu zip file to gain root access. To help you further, you can download X506 2GB/16GB version custom recovery from this LINK and the SuperSU zip from LINK 2. Don't know how to flash recovery? learn it here.

  28. @Hen Rik: You'll need to first unlock the bootloader before you can gain root access. "This tutorial" will guide you, just make sure you select your product model in the form that'll be presented to you. After unlocking the bootloader, you can try Kingroot again.

  36. Guess this is your first time. After launching kingroot from App Drawer, you'll see a blue circle (all kingroot versions has it), just look for a rectangle button placed below the circle and click on it. You should see a caption that confirms the rooting is in progress.
