KingRoot claims to be the best one-click rooting tool for Android, and by that, they’re referring to the fact that they can root more devices than any other single tool in existence.

All up, KingRoot can get you root access to over one hundred thousands different smartphones and tablets on the market from all over the globe.

The team often releases different KingRoot APK versions, and each of those is compatible for more devices than the last.

When you download KingRoot for Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb, what you’re doing is downloading the version of KingRoot that will work for all compatible devices that are running on that particular Android version. Since each APK release is made to be compatible with more devices than the last but it never takes away compatibility with existing devices, it’s relatively straightforward to be able to make that distinction.

While KingRoot doesn’t provide the official compatible product list, the chances are quite high for success given how many devices it is said to be suitable for. What’s more, the version of KingRoot coming from the official website’s homepage is always compatible with the latest version of Android possible. Nevertheless, if it were APK files that you wanted, we link you through to those as well.

KingRoot for Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb will mean you have root access that can install all the same applications as you could if you were to be rooted on any other version of Android. Additionally, it means you can install the same root applications that you could from any other root method as well, one of which is the Purify app which can be downloaded from the official KingRoot website.

Most of the other root applications that will work for the version of KingRoot that you’ve used for Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb will be available to download from the Google Play Store that you already know and love for regular Android apps. Root apps can always be downloaded whether your device is rooted or not; the difference is you can only run them if you can grant them the root permissions they need to be able to function.

Downloading the KingRoot Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb application

  1. Enable the Unknown Sources option from your device settings by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources. Having the Unknown Sources option turned on means you can start installing applications from outside of the Google Play Store.
  2. Download the KingRoot APK either directly to your web browser on the smartphone or tablet and install it that way, or download it to the computer and copy the file over to the internal storage SD card. Those of you choosing to install it on the SD card will need a File Manager. You’ll also need to learn how to install APK files from your SD card so they are on your device as applications.
  3. Tap and open the KingRoot app icon from your app drawer.
  4. Tap on the large button you can see from the front page of the application that suggests it will root your device. (The text of the phrase can vary over time depending on what the developers choose to put there).
  5. Wait until the progress bar reaches 100% before touching any buttons. The app will give you a “success” message and a green tick on the display when it passes and is finished.
  6. Close the application and reboot your smartphone before you try to install any applications like the Greenify app.

You can learn how to unroot the device using the KingUser app if you want to delete the KingRoot app and have the device the same way it was running before you followed this guide.
