Answer - Question

I have a Nomi i503 and I wanted to root the phone, I decided to install it with Kingo Root. After root installation phone wouldn't turn on, so it was like a brick. Reprogrammed it and after connecting to the internet the phone app installs. It can be removed, but when you connect to the internet still downloads and installs. All the antivirus tried, and nothing helps. Connects to the internet but still downloads and installs.

I have reflashed, reset, formatted flash drive and nothing helped. When it turns on, the phone just hangs, but when you press the Home button, it minimizes. Please help me to resolve problem after installing Kingo Root on Android.

Answer . The big question is where did you download Kingo Root from. You may have gotten a modified version of the root app. To restrict permissions of the Phone app, install Advanced Permission Manager and cut off all possible permissions for both KingRoot and Phone app.

In extreme case, installation of custom flash with phone internal memory dump should help. But this is a dangerous trick.

Root program kingo root system applications see, but can not restore them. I downloaded the CWM, but even with it in the recovery can not get. Can you advise me whether I can use my own means to recover system applications? If so, how? Try to download the latest Kingo Root and retrieve the root rights again.

Installed SuperSU on Android, checked Root Checker, rights are there. Opened app, "Applications not configured", only root checker in logs. Waited - no request for rights appeared. I want to move some programs to SD card, some delete. All need the rights. What to do? You do not need root rights to move or delete standard applications. For more specific tasks like uninstalling or moving applications to the sd card, we suggest installing Framaroot or Kingo Root, in combination with an Android uninstaller application like CleanMaster.
