    No such thing. Rooting is not secure. It opens up your phone to potential security issues.

    And the best way to root a phone is using a PC, not an app.

    Depends on the model of the phone. You can search over at the specific section of your phone in this forum.

    OK, it's a Lenovo. What's the model number and can you read Chinese?

    Whatever rooting application you decide to use,I strongly suggest you don't use KingRoot with Superuser ME. Take this advice from a person that has bricked 4 different devices using those two applications with each other. But if KingRoot becomes your rooting application of choice and you see a message stating (Unfortunately Android Systems Has Stopped). This would be a good indication to unroot and uninstall KingRoot from your device. Now some people think that KingRoot is the best thing since white bread was invented. Also if you're playing around with Rooting your Smartphone, Don't use it on the one you're using as your primary phone until you see what type of bugs and glitches it has if any before using it on your primary smartphone phone.

    I was fortunate to not have any problems using Kingroot to initially root my device. I made sure to replace it with SuperSU immediately afterwards, though.

    NO!! Because i'm not rooting never no more, I was rooting androids when rooting app came out years ago using Z4root with no issues. It just became an issue when I started using KingRoot on my devices and Using SU ME to remove Kingroot. Ok after 4 bricked devices and a about $1500 dollar later, I decided to abandon rooting applications on my devices for ever. So you may want to share your good rooting fortunes with someone else. but here I'm sharing my misfortunes with rooting devices.

    A horrible experience such as that would be enough for someone to abandon Android altogether, and pick up an iPhone instead.

    Well there is...but it's in Chinese, and is rather complex as well. And the tools you need to do it are Chinese only as well.

    And that's it for this device, I think. Much info for Lenovo phones and tablets is Chinese.

    At least get a Chinese phone where there's plenty of good information in English and the manufacturer supports rooting as well, such as OnePlus, Meizu or Oppo.

    Have a look at Wondershare Mobilego. It has a root tool that can root most phones without installing a superuser you cannot get rid of.
    Should come with free trial period and option to buy after.

    Yes or the Windows phone which I currently have with all Windows 10 1511 version installed and updated. But I got bored with the Insider preview program and wanted to venture into new territory with the new Android phones. Boredom carries a heavy price so bring a lot of money dabbling around in the Devil's Playground.

    OK, Shenzhen Wondershare Technology Co. Ltd. Guangdong, P.R.China.

    So....USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    But for rooting many Chinese devices, it probably works.

    Used it on my Verizon S4. It worked, then deleted program and uninstalled the one app that it put on phone. Everything you do at your own risk but program is in English and allowed immediate installation of SuperSu without issue.

    Read thoroughly and check before doing anything you don't understand. I've never done Lenovo and only had a quick scan through. Instead of downloading the full SDK tool, download the mini one from post 2 here (I would also suggest you read through that thread there if you are unfamiliar with ADB.

    It all may look a little daunting but once you have read through it and had a run through yourself once or twice it should seem quite easy.

    2)
    In the rooting section of the idea tab here at AF the person suggests the Kingo App, but as many stated already, one click apps can cause more problems than they are worth.

    I personally would suggest, and try myself option 1. Obviously, try either of these at your own risk, but always check if you are stuck before doing. Good Luck.
