In an earlier article, My Rooted HP Slate 7 Extreme Android Tablet Ready to tie the knots with a 3G Internet Modem, I explained how and why I rooted the tablet. In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to use KingRoot mobile app to root your Android phone or tablet.

KingRoot is a one-click rooting mobile app; in essence, you can root your Android device without using a computer. You only need to download the app and install it on your android phone or tablet; with just a few clicks, you have a rooted device. Don Caprio of used the application to root the Innjoo Halo smartphone. For some devices, you will need to take the steps below if you cannot root your device just with the KingRoot app.

  • Download Moborobo (Desktop App) to Install ADB (Android Debug Bridge) on your device.

UPDATE: Download ADB using this tutorial on XDA Developers

Note: Ensure that your device is still connected to your computer.

After installation, the Moborobo app will automatically detect your device; if not, click on the “MoboMarket for Android” shortcut on your computer desktop and allow the USB debugging notification on your device.


If that goes smoothly, you have successfully installed ADB on your device and a desktop app to manage your Android device.

Download KingRoot from the links below, open the app, and follow the on-screen prompts. In less than 5 minutes, you have a rooted android device.
