KingRoot as the name implies is the best one click apk app used in rooted MTK devices. Recently, kingroot was only able to root MTK devices running on Android 4.4 Kitkat based OS but unable to root the latest OS such as Android Lollipop 5.0/ 5.1 and Android Marshmallow 6.0 thereby forcing users running the latest OS to scout for ways to root and install custom reciveries on their device. So far so good, a reliable method came up which was the nethod of using PC to install custom recoveries so as to gain root access afterwards but that was not really good enough because many who didn't really know how ended up with a bricked device but to the geeks and those who knew how benefited from the method and are still benefiting till date.
GOODNEWS! Team Kingroot had users running the latest OS in mind and i must say, they have really done a great job by upgrading our best one click root app to be able to root the latest Android OS. This latest version has the highest chance of rooting almost all Android devices running on the bygone Froyo, Gingerbread, Jelly Bean, KitKat, and the latest tasty Android 5.1 Lollipop and Marshmallow 6.0.
If you are one among those who don't like to flash any third party Recovery into your lovely device Android 4.4.2, 5.1 and 6.0 using the PC method, then you definitely need to try this latest version of Kingroot. Personally tested the new version and it successfully rooted Infinix Zero 2 and Hot Note Pro running the latest Android 5.1 XUI and there is a possibility of gaining root access on Marshmallow 6.0 using the newly updated Kingroot.
