I'm fairly new to Linux so sorry for my noobiness. Anyways I just wanted to check that my phone was rooted since I need an app that requires it to be rooted, but nothing happens in the app. I wanted to double check that it was rooted so I typed su in the terminal emulator but nothing happens. I still type but the next terminal line doesn't appear even after 10 minutes. No error or permission denied, it just skips to the next line and does nothing. If it helps, I rooted using Kingo.

  • The emulator needs permission to grant the root access. Are you getting a message prompt from Kingo when you typed in su? – Ryan Noles Sep 26 '16 at 14:59
  • No I am not. I uninstalled some of the apps that came with it like the superbattery and kingo link so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it – Nick Sep 26 '16 at 15:13
  • Thats the problem. You needed those apps because third-party rooting apps have been know to give you "temporary" root access. The best solution is to root the phone again with kingo, install a custom recovery, and then flash SuperSu. SuperSu is better and gives you a better experience with better binaries. – Ryan Noles Sep 26 '16 at 15:16
  • I installed TWRP, and I granted root access but the window only says "Requesting root access" with a loading symbol. Is there any way to fix this? – Nick Sep 26 '16 at 15:55
  • Try rooting with KingRoot – Ryan Noles Sep 26 '16 at 16:02

KingROOT will root your phone successfully. Remove KINGO and install KingRoot apk. Kingroot

  • Using the Kingo apk worked perfectly. Thank you. – Nick Sep 26 '16 at 16:48
