This doesn’t work. I tried opening the zip file & renaming Superuser.apk to superuser.apk but it won’t let me. How do you rename the file in the zip folder? I just downloaded the zip file directly to sd card via phone & used winzip.
So, after using the terminal, I get a few error messages & I get taken to kingroot FB page. However, supersu never got installed.
Hi, Mr. Bapna & Members. The second more time consuming method worked for me but I didn’t realize I would replace a installed app that converted itself to a system app with another that behaved the same way yet did NOT accomplish their purported objective. The goal was to remove “bloatware.” I could have saved a lot of time and energy simply by DISABLING the unnecessary apps.
disabling/deactivating them is not the same as uninstalling
I’m getting a lot of “no such file or directory” on the second step.
It removes kingroot and the root goes away with it, if i try to install manually superSU it will go with the “the binary files can’t be installed”
