How to Remove/Replace Kingroot (KingUser) with SuperSu

If you was one of those who root their devices by using KingRoot App and would like to remove kinguser and related files, you can replace it with the well known SuperSU.
I have made a small script to remove Chinese kingruser, all related files and folders, and install SuperSU.
This script will do all the work for you without using PC, just by terminal, first of all, thanks to chainfire for his SuperSU files.

Before starting :
  • Download and install Terminal emulator app
  • Download and unzip "Replace_Kingroot_With_SuperSU.zip" file
Steps :
  • Send the extracted folder "mrw" to the internal storage of your device and make sure that this folder contains 4 files
  • Open Terminal emulator and type :
Su
  • Allow root permission
  • Type :
sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
  • It might display some error, at the end it will launch supersu or open supersu manually.
  • Update su binary normal, then reboot.
Done !
Notes :
  • The extracted folder must be in /Phone/ or you will need to change cmd.
  • This script must work for all devices waiting tester.
  • You might need to update SuperSu after rebooting your device. 
  • Please let me know the model of your device, if it worked for you.
  • Check this post also, How to Remove/Replace Chinese VRoot superuser with SuperSu

TowelRoot is the best app to root more Samsung Galaxy devices whice are running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat but after upgrading to NF update TowelRoot will not root your phone anymore because Samsung has been patched the kernel in the latest update.
By using this guide I will help you to root the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 3 on NF update or later on 4.4.2 KitKat.

Requirements :
  • Charged Samsung galaxy S4, galaxy S5, galaxy Note 3 running on NF update or later.
  • Kernel files
  • Odin3 (any version).
  • Installed Samsung Kies or Samsung mobile USB driver.
  • TowelRoot Apk by Geohot
  • Read notes before starting please.
Instructions :
  1. This process WON'T wipe your data, but backup your phone just in case this process corrupt your data.
  2. Download then unzip your phone kernel files.
  3. Flash Model_ROOT_Kernel.tar.md5 file using odin3 in PDA or AP section.
  4. Make sure Re-Partition is NOT selected.
    After your device boot up 
  5. Root your device using TowelRoot method by following this guide : [1-Click Root] Galaxy S4/S5/Note 3 Using TowelRoot Method
  6. Make sure your phone is rooted ...
  7. Flash back the specific kernel for your phone build number using Odin3 in PDA or AP section.
Congratulation, your phone is rooted on the latest update without tripping binary or KNOX counter.
This video was made for Galaxy S5 but it's exactly the same steps for Galaxy S4 and Note 3
Notes:
  • Use this guide at your own risk.
  • Please make sure you download the specific kernel files for your phone model number.
  • If your device stuck in bootloop after flashing the ROOT kernel, wipe cache/dalvik from recovery mode will fix it.
  • This will not trip binary or KNOX counter, but it might change system status to custom.
  • To unroot your device --> Open SuperSU app / Settings / Full UnRoot then flash stock FW
  • The following models are the only supported devices till now.
  • After flashing ROOT kennel, you might face more force close (its normal), so that its better to disable S Health before flashing ROOT kernel (you can enable it after flashing your system kernel)
  • WiFi will not work also after flashing ROOT kernel, but you can fix it after rooting by flashing your system kernel.
  • For #SprintGalaxyS4 #L720, #TMobileGalaxyS4 #M919, #Verizon_Galaxy_S4_Mini #I435 use the following steps :
    - Open #TowelRoot_v3 and tap 3 times on "welcome to towelroot v3" a new field will appear
    - Change the value from : 1337 0 1 0 4 0

How to Root Verizon Galaxy S3 "SCH-I353" on Android 4.3 "NC1" update

More users after updating their Verizon galaxy S3 SCH-I535 to the latest I535VZWCNC1 update, they lost the ability to root their phone by using SafeRoot method, which was completely safe, easy and it doesn't trip KNOX nor binary counter.
I have found a way to root NC1 update by using "SafeRoot" again on the latest android 4.3 jelly bean like any other devices without unlocking bootloader.

Requirements :
  • I535_Root_Kernel file
  • I535_NC1_Kernel file
  • Odin3 any, version
  • Installed Samsung Kies or Samsung mobile USB driver
  • Saferoot tool file
Instructions :
  1. This process WON'T wipe your data, but backup your phone just in case this process corrupt your data. 
  2. Flash I535_ROOT_Kernel.tar.md5 file by odin3 in PDA or AP section.
  3. Make sure Re-Partition is NOT selected.
  4. Root your device using SafeRoot method by following this guide : [No Warranty Void] Safe Root Android 4.3 for Galaxy S3/S4 Note 2
  5. Make sure your phone is rooted by trying App which require root permission.
  6. Flash back NC1 kernel by Odin3.
Congratulation, your Verizon galaxy S3 SCH-I535 is rooted on the latest Android 4.3 jelly bean without tripping binary or KNOX counter.
This video was made for GT-I9300 but it's exactly the same steps for SCH-I535
Notes:
  • Download and install manually busybox if the tool is failed to install it.
  • Use this guide at your own risk.

How to Fix Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Rooting Problem for Galaxy S3/S4/Note 2/3

After updating Samsung galaxy S3/S4/Note 2/ Note 3 to Android 4.3 jelly bean update which contains the new security from Samsung "Samaung KNOX", you might face a problem if you tried to root your device by using CF-Auto-Root method or other methods.

This might happened because of KNOX security, it block/disable SuperSu app and you will see this notification after the first boot.
"Unfortunately, SuperSU has stopped" 
"Unauthorized access to a secured area has been blocked"
In some cases you will not see SuperSU after rooting in your application list
You can enable it by going to Settings / More / Application manager, Swipe to DISABLED tab and Enable SuperSU app.

How to fix KNOX problem :
1. Go to Google Play, Search and update/install SuperSU app
2. When you will open SuperSU for the first time it will ask you to update the SU binary
3. Tap on "Continue" then "Normal" not the "CWM/TRP".
4. SuperSU will detect Samsung KNOX security and will ask you to disable KNOX, Choose "OK"
5. After displaying "installation success!", reboot your device.
Done !
Now SuperSU and root access should be working fine for you.

How to fix "Unfortunately, SuperSU has stopped"
John Giosso
Download and install the latest APK for SuperSU like MrW0lf suggested.
I was having the same exact problem (unfortunately, SuperSU has stopped), so I downloaded the latest UPDATE-SuperSU file and extract it to have supersu APK, put it on my SD card in my phone and installed it from there.
It was strange because the version that was already on my phone was the same 1.89 version that I downloaded, but regardless, when I clicked on the APK, it saw it as an update, it asked to disabled knox, and worked like a charm.

Posted by : love is me

Thank you very much. The method worked smoothly.
Just for the record, and you may want to share this information with your visitors. After finishing all the steps and rooting your phone. It is very wise to uninstall VRoot from your PC. I recommend using IObit Uninstaller 3. if VRoot uninstalled by the regular way through widnows, it leaves lot of registry keys on your pc that tries to open different ports as it shows on the attached file. IObit Uninstaller 3 will ensure that all related keys and other system files are totally removed. I am not going to share the link of the application, but you can safely google the name and read many reviews on PCWorld and PCMagz regarding the application (Its free). You can use any other Uninstaller application that you trust but is capable of completely remove the application from your pc along with all the keys and system files.
