The 360 Root application is another one-click rooting application similar to KingRoot—but the way it works is a bit different and thus what it offers people is different also.
What you can do with the 360 Root application is give the root access to the applications that request it but without actually always having root access on your device. That’s why so many people are choosing to use the 360 Root application over other one-click rooting solutions that usually allow you to run all the root applications without unlocking the bootloader and getting a custom recovery installed.
Before getting stuck into the guide below, you should spend a few minutes checking the list of supported devices that is available from the website so you can make sure that you are not wasting your time installing this tool. Just because the creators of the tool are suggesting that it works for all Android devices, does not mean it is true. It’s a clever bit of marketing that they do to get people’s attention—but just like with the KingRoot one-click rooting tool that promised the same thing about 12 months ago now, the 360 Root tool does not come close to delivering on the promise of being able to root every day. Still, there is a significant amount of devices that it can root. You just need to make sure that you are running on the right software version. That software version information is available from the same page.
Moreover, it’s also worth noting that there are many similarities to this tool and KingRoot with the way it has been marketed, so there’s also a chance that the guys from team 360 Root manage to root more devices in the future and add them to the list of supported device much like the KingRoot team continually does even to this day.
How to download the 360 Root application that roots Android 5.1.1 Lollipop versions
Start by making sure that your computer has the Google Chrome web browser because it offers the easiest way to translate webpages from other countries that speak other languages thanks to its Google Translate feature that it also owns.
When you visit the Google website and Chrome page, click on the link available at the top of the page that says “Download” and then hover the cursor over the link to reveal two options: the download for PC and the download for mobile. Choose the one that suits your needs.
If you click on the link for PC, make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click on the download link that is available for the 64-bit version of computers if your is 64-bit—like most of them are these days.
Visit the official 360 Root website. When you visit the website, you will see the page with some buttons on it that look like the screenshot below. Instead of taking your best guess at what the buttons say, continue following the guide below to find out what they mean.
You now get to see the writing available on the screen in English. Click on the version of the 360 Root application that you want to install on your device (Either the version for PC that required you to connect your device to the computer to get the root access to the internal system or the version that you can install directly on your mobile device and get root access from there.)
Note that just because you have translated the page in English so you can read it doesn’t mean you can get this application to install on an operating system that is not Chinese.
Click on the 360 Root executable file that is available just above the taskbar if you downloaded the version that is made for the computer—-keeping in mind that only a Chinese version of the operating system can run this file.
Now that you have the chance to start installing any of the applications that require root access before they can run on your device, you can check out what those apps are by researching through our list of the best root applications available for the Android operating system. In it, you will find root applications that can give your device added features, different design, the chance to remove stock apps better known as bloatware and much more.
