Caution using Kingo ROOT on Android
May 03, 2016 05:20PM
My own mileage varies here - it seemed to root/unroot my Android KitKat fine and all appears well.

However when I tried it on Android Lollipop it un-rooted right away, something me and others first attributed to a locked bootloader.
So I'd Factory reset and it was hit and miss whether it would work. Today I reset and started from scratch again and Kingo tried to download PCAccelerator and acdsee and my firewall asked for access. The former is considered a virus and the second an image viewing app, which I don't use (maybe it's payloaded who knows). Bad stuff and I don't plan on using this anymore.

Maybe you're wondering why I haven't asked Huuawei for the boot unlocker, well I got the four informations and tried. The site starts in English and only leads to a Chinese page. I emailed Huawei Mobile with my four informations and got this last night:

2.Log in your Huawei ID for continuously 14 days.
3.Each Huawei ID should not apply for the unlock code more than twice within half years.If you meet the information,please go to http://emui.huawei.com/en/ and click the 'download'button to login your Huawei ID other than any other third party ID to apply for the unlock code.Please contact us by mail or local service hotline as following if error message appears.

Please submit your mobile model, SN, IMEI/MEID and erro message in your e-mail.We also need to know that your phone is rooted, it can be out of the best working state and part of functions may not be able to work normally. In additon, the system is vulnerable to be invaded by viruses once your phone is permitted to unlock. What's more, for the lacking of fully tested, the third party software will not be compatible with your phone. Unlocking will bring unexpected negative impacts and the device will be not normal, and can not be restored, Huawei after-sales service office will not provide warranty service for your rooted phone, and you may bear the cost. So we strongly advise you to think it twice.

So I'll keep searching for another way to skin this cat, because logging in for 14 days from the phone is kind if cruel if you ask me.
