These are the guidelines to download KingRoot for Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich Android operating systems. The KingRoot application is a universal one-click rooting app that works for most devices, but not all devices.
Just because your Android is running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich doesn’t necessarily mean it will get rooted with this tool. However, there is a good chance it will work, and there is never any harm in trying. You cannot brick your device using the KingRoot app. It just searches for a rooting method, and if it cannot find one for your device, then it will tell you on the display that it failed.
Downloading KingRoot for Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
The KingRoot tool is straightforward to install directly from your Android operating system, but before you can do it, you need to make sure that you have the Unknown Sources feature that Android has enabled first. The reason is that Android only lets you install applications from the Google Play Store by default. They do it that way because they own the Google Play Store and thus have complete control over the apps and the contents of the app that are located on Google Play. When it comes to applications being housed somewhere else, it’s a lot more difficult for Google to know what is in those files and they become riskier to install for that very reason. Still, there are a lot of apps out there that aren’t available from the Google Play Store, and there isn’t anything wrong with installing most of them. Google knows this and subsequently offers you a way to get them installed—the way to do it is by first enabling the Unknown Sources option. To do that, you need to head to the Menu > Settings > Security and then toggle the switch on for the “Unknown Sources” option.
Now that your mobile device is read yet have applications from outside Google Play installed on it, open up any web browser that you like to use and then type “KingRoot.net” into the address bar at the top of the browser window. Hit the “Enter” key to load the website, and then the official KngRoot website will load in front of you.
The official KingRoot website is really cool because it can automatically detect what device you are using when you visit it and if you are using the Android operating system it’ll already know and then give you the link you need right in front of you without you needing to do any searching. Scroll down the front page just a bit and then tap on the “Download APK for Android” button featured in green,
KingRoot then gives you a thank you message if you look at the back of the webpage, but the Android operating system gives another message over the top which is letting you know that the types of files can be harmful to your device. That’s referring to the fact that you’ve downloaded a file from outside Google Play but isn’t suggesting that KingRoot is not safe. Since we know KingRoot is safe and used by millions of people right around the world, you can continue with confidence by tapping on the “OK” button.
The file has now downloaded to your Android. You can find it by swiping down from the top of your device so that you are pulling down the notification shade and then tap on the KingRoot file where it shows you that the download is complete in the picture below.
Before KingRoot installs itself on your device, it gives you the chance to see all the things it is going to get access to should you install it. You can’t pick and choose which of these you want it to have or not have. It is an all or nothing type deal. What you can do if you don’t like sounds of any is tap on the “Cancel” button and cancel the installation instead of going through with it. The rest of you who are OK with the level of permissions that KingRoot is retesting need to tap on the “Install’ button in the bottom right corner of the device’s display.
The KingRoot tool then begins to install on your device. With a bit if luck you won’t need to do anything else and the KingRoot tool will be installed soon.
Many of you though will get a message letting you know that the KingRoot installation has been blocked. You can fix this problem and continue the installation by tapping on the small arrow to the right-hand side of where it says “More details” so that it opens up the section offering you more details.
You’ll then see a new link that says “Install anyway (unsafe)” that you need to tap on and the installation of the rooting tool then continues.
In just a few moments, you’ll get another message on the device’s display letting you know that the KingRoot application is now installed. All that’s left to do is open up by tapping on the “Open” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the display. You can also find the KingRoot application now installed as a new app from your app drawer nestled in among your other applications. It’ll stay there until you choose to install it.

Now that you have officially rooted the Android operating system it is time to find out what you can do with the root access you just acquired. It is all about what you can install the extra apps. You might hear people talk about they want to root so they can remove things, but the process of removing things like system apps is still done by first installing an app that then helps you eliminate the apps you want to be removed. There are root applications out there on the web that ca help you do just about anything. There are root apps to help you backup and restore data. Root apps to change your DNS server. Root apps to completely remove the bloatware haunting your device. Root apps to gaining lower-level hardware access. Root apps for managing app permissions. Rooting even has apps now that let you automate things like the Tasker app. With Tasker, you can add new features to enhance the ones already available on your Android so that the software is doing things tailored to suit your needs.
The only thing with root apps is that you need to know what they are before you enter the Google Play Store because Google Play does not have a dedicated area for the root apps. You need to use the search box and browse for the names only, and our guide that lists heaps of the best root apps for Android can help give you some idea that you might be currently lacking.
