Kingroot launched its latest version 4.9.2 a couple of weeks back and of course, it came with a lot of improvement. One of such improvement was the ability to root stubborn Android smartphones especially those running Android Lollipop OS.
Although I had initially talked on how to Unroot an Android smartphone using Kingroot, I feel it’s necessary putting up a similar post while using the latest Kingroot version 4.9.2 as a case study.
Please note that the unrooting process will only work if you had used Kingroot application in rooting the smartphone. If you used a different application or software, please revert to that same app or software to Unroot the device.
Unrooting any Android Phone Using Kingroot Latest Version 4.9.2
Take a look at the image below and you’d realize that the app says the device is rooted. Also look at the time.
Now, take a look at the image below and you’d realize that the root checker app now says the device is not rooted. Also take a close look at the time.
So, this clearly illustrates that the steps am going to be giving below have been tested over and over again and it works every-time.
- Launch the Kingroot app, tap on the option icon as seen in the image below
- Under the option button, tap on General settings
- Scroll down to Uninstall Kingroot and tap on that.
- You will be shown a display message saying after Unroot, you will lost root access. If you want to go on with the process, tap on continue.
- Another related option will be displayed. Uncheck the backup root option and then tap OK.
- Wait a few minutes till you get the ‘root access has been removed‘ notification.
Now, use any root checking app in validating that you have successfully unrooted the smartphone.
