[Tutorial] How To Unroot Android Phone Using Kingroot App

Over the years, i have often been an advocate of rooting android phones. Virtually all the android phones i have used, i have rooted. But considering the issues we are currently facing with MTK android phones like infinix, Tecno, Innjoo and the rest, it’s best not to root the phone if there are no special motives for it.

For example, in the case of infinix phones, updates are released every now and then and whenever this is done, updating your phone could get it bricked if the phone has been rooted.

Recently, i unrooted my infinix hot note x551 android phone because i wanted to do a factory reset and when doing a factory reset on these android phones, it’s advisable to first unroot it so that it doesn’t get bricked. I unrooted and commenced the factory reset process. It went smoothly and when that was completed and the device was running smoothly, an update pop up. I decided to update the phone and voila, it got bricked with the no command error. The phone is still currently in coma because in the process of unbricking it, it got hard-bricked with caused it not to even turn up at all. Will write a comprehensive solution when the phone chooses to revive back.

Back to the matter, if you do not have any motive like having full control over your android device in terms of technical abilities, it’s best not to root it and if you have already rooted it and looking forward to unrooting your phone, we are here to help.

Earlier before now, we had published a tutorial which talked on how to unroot an android phone using SuperUser app. If the SuperUser app didn’t work for you, you can try using kingroot by following the tutorial herein.

Unrooting Android Phone Using Kingroot

Please note that using Kingroot in unrooting an android phone in most cases, will only work if the device was actually rooted using the Kingroot app.


==> Launch the latest version of Kingroot app (version 4.5.0107 beta3), tap on the settings gear which is located at the top right side of the page.

==> Under the settings page, tap on Root Authorization setting > Remove Root Permission > tap on Continue.

==> A confirmation message shows up afterwards, tap on OK.

==> Wait for a while and you should get a notification stating ‘Root as been removed‘. Wait a little longer and the kingroot app will automatically close.

==> Reboot your device and use the Root Checker Basic app in verifying root permission. At this point, you should get a notification saying ‘Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device‘.

Take a deep look at the images above. The image at the right signifies when the device was rooted and the image at the left signifies when the device became unrooted. You can also look at the time difference as well as the battery level. I used the Infinix Zero 2 for this particular tutorial.

I used the kingroot app on my galaxy grand prime g530w ( not the computer version ) How do I unroot if I can’t boot my phone? It just says ‘custom binary blocked by frp.’ I rooted using the kingroot apk app. How can I unroot my phone so that it boots normally?

Thanks! It’s much appreciated. =)

Anonymous, No it wouldn’t. It will only remove the root privilege.
