I have a HTC Desire 530, Android 6.0.1, can it be rooted? I want to make sure before I root it with Kingroot.

I've tried looking over the web for indexes of allowed devices, and I haven't seen it, but I'm not too sure about those lists as well.

So I'm just going to ask here, can this phone be safely rooted or not?

  • KingRoot, iRoot, FramaRoot, etc seem not to work on Android 6.0.1. Try the PC version of Kingo Root (not tested though). – esQmo_ Nov 5 '16 at 18:41
  • There is a forum for your phone model at XDA Developers: forum.xda-developers.com/desire-530 – esQmo_ Nov 5 '16 at 18:47
  • Yeah but I don't understand anything, and it says that unlocking the bootloader wipes my phone. I don't want that. Isn't there any other way? – ScarXL Nov 5 '16 at 18:55
  • Yes unlocking the bootloader always wipe all data. You can't get root access without unlocking the bootloader. Just make a backup of your data. – esQmo_ Nov 5 '16 at 18:57
  • If i use Kingo Root is all my data going to be gone? It seems to support my device, it tells me HTC Desire 530 and a "ROOT" button. Just in case I'm making a full backup using the SDK adb.exe . But still, I want to know. – ScarXL Nov 5 '16 at 19:05

The PC version of Kingo Root works as well.
