Looking for a reason to root your Android device with the latest KingRoot tool for devices running Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread? Look no further than extreme customization options that will make your mobile operating system seem like a part of you with the way you wanted it to be. Mobile operating systems are heaps of fun largely due to the fact that you can customize them with all sorts of new ROMs. You wouldn’t dare do with a computer what we do to our phones.
KingRoot is a new one-click rooting application that can run on your device with a locked bootloader. Further, it doesn’t unlock the bootloader when you run the application either. The main purpose of rooting with KingRoot is installing the KingUser application which is like the Chinese version of SuperSU by Chainfire. With the KingUser on your device, you can run those apps that require root access to run as well as block out any apps which could be harmful. Additionally, anyone who prefers the idea of installing Chainfire’s SuperSU can still do that too and completely replace KingRoot’s KingUser app.
Installing the KingRoot application on devices running Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread
1. Enable the Unknown Sources option from your device that is running Android 2.3.2 by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Security > Device Administration > Unknown Sources.
2. Download the KingRoot APK file directly to the web browser app on your smartphone or Android tablet. Alternatively, you can download the APK to the computer and copy it to the root of the internal storage SD card. You then need a File Manager and the guide to learn how to install APK files from the SD card.

3. Tap on the KingRoot icon from the app drawer once you have it on your device.
4. Tap the button on the main page of the app that suggests getting root access on your device. The name of the button varies between app versions, so we cannot say what yours will say. It usually says something like ‘Get Root’ or ‘Try To Root’. However, the latest version has a button that says to fix the root.
5. After tapping the button, the KingRoot application will now root your device; you can watch the progress bar and wait until it reaches 100%. When done, you will get a success message from the KingRoot application letting you know that your device is rooted.
6. Close the KingRoot application down and then reboot your device the same way you normally would do any other day.
After rebooting the Android device that is running Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread, you will find the KingUser application available from the app drawer and it is granting your device the rooting permissions. That means you can hit the Google Play Store and start installing your root-requiring apps.
Remember: the KingRoot app does not unlock your bootloader and does not require an unlocked bootloader; however, a custom recovery likely will. Do not try installing a custom recovery on your device if it requires the bootloader to be unlocked first.
