My android device is a Huawei Ascend G7-L01 I downloaded King root 4.8.0 like one year ago,when i was fed up of it,it tried to uninstall it,didn't work claiming that it is a system app,then i did a factory reset,did't work again,then i tried to uninstall it inside the app itself and it said 'removing failed feedback',didn't work again, and i disabled it but it does still affect the phone and it is annoying ,then many people were suggesting flash the android device ROM...........

My problem here is i don't know if it will really work and how to use it , can you guys please specify your answer ?

    I guess what you're missing is some background on what a ROM is and what ROM-flashing means (please follow the links, both are "quick reads" with useful links). With that obtained, your question is as good as answered.

Download ES File explorer, grant it root permissions and:

 1. Delete the app from /system/app/Kingroot
 2. Delete the su file from /system/bin
 3. Reboot the phone

That is if you can't do just as my friend already told you

  • When i tried to delete the app from /system/app/kingroot ,it said 'kingroot uninstall failed'. plz help

That is from the Kingroot app itself you're talking about, but from a third party file manager like ES it can surely remove it off in a second. But incase it doesn't you can try adb if you access a laptop with ADB tool where you will connect your phone to, authorize debugging from your phone and run these commands:

adb shell
rm /system/app/Kingroot/Kingroot.apk

or download an app called terminal emulator to phone then run the commands directly:

    rm /system/app/Kingroot/Kingroot.apk

This will delete the app away as easy as abc. after allowing the prompt of terminal to use root access
