I recalled several months ago, i could root virtually any android phone i lay my hands on,as a matter of fact, we published several articles to that regard, but then something changed, i installed Kingroot on one of my Android phone, unfortunately a system update was pushed via ota to patch some security flaws, i then became restless, bent on either ignore the update, or install and have my phone bricked, so i did some digging on how i could possibly unroot my android phone using kingroot since it was the same app used in the first place..
