    I have downloaded Kingo directly from their website and have run it several times and I keep getting failed root. My build version if MJE. So, do I have to flash something with Odin to be able to root this version?

    If you are using a laptop, Kingo will fail every time. For some reason, you need a desktop PC to root with Kingo. I have no idea why, but I have never successfully rooted with Kingo on a laptop. On the desktop, it roots after one or two tries. Hope this helps :)

    Thanks Chief...but I was using my desktop pc in my office and the version of Kingo I downloaded directly from their website, which is version 1.2.1 and it failed every single time. I am going to try my desktop pc at home now and see.

    Update: Well, just tried it at home as well and same...failed. I got it rooted using VRoot.
