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 3.2.2 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 3.2.2 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 3.2.2 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 3.2.2 Honeycomb APK

1. Enable the Unknown Sources option from your settings on the Android device by pointing to the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources.

2. Download the KingRoot APK and install it using a web browser such as Google Chrome, or by transferring it from a computer to your SD card. You need a File Manager to work out how to transfer the APK from the SD card, so it is on your device as an application.

3. Tap the new app icon from your app drawer that says ‘KingRoot’ and the app opens.

4. Tap on the large button from the first page of the app that suggests trying to root your device. (The phrase the KingRoot team use for this can change depending on your version.)

5. Wait for the KingRoot progress bar to reach 100% and for the application to give you the “success” message on the screen.

6. Close down the application and then reboot your device.

7. Open the Google Play Store application and download the root checker app to check it did work. You need to open your root checker app and agree to update the SuperUser access if requested.

You can learn how to unroot using the KingUser app if you want to return your device back to the stock ROM it was on before you started the guide. The KingUser is KingRoot’s equivalent of the SuperSU app and is what is granting your device the root access.
