Two reasons that tell you why get the “Root Failed! ConnectionUnstabitil” with Kingo Android Root

ROOT Failed!
ConnectionUnstabitil

I am so sure that when you see this, you must be…frustrated, maybe even a little pissed. Even the error message is a misspelling… I know.

Normally this error is caused by multi-device connections; Kingo cannot establish connection with the device you need to root. Sometimes, you may wonder, I only connect one device!!! Wait… hear me out.

Another reason for this may be that you have an EMULATOR working on your PC.

What the hell is an Emulator, you may ask.

When relating to Android, an Emulator means a “virtual mobile device” that runs on your computer, usually included in the Android SDK. The emulator lets you develop and test Android applications without using a physical device.

Thanks to users that send us the log file and feedback when Kingo failed to root their device, we concludes the following,

  1. Most of them had BlueStacks emulator installed. Thus Kingo would pick up on it instead of the real device. Now, since Kingo does not have the option of devices for you to choose and will automatically try to root the first device found, I suggest you exit from BlueStacks or any emulator like that, and then try again.
  2. Sometimes, Samsung Kies/ HTC Sync Manager and some other software like these will lead to connection failure, device not detect or root failed.

The difference between root, S-OFF/S-ON, and locked/unlocked bootloader in the HTC devices.

Thinking about that there are a lot of information should be known for the HTC users. I’d like to try and dispel some misinformation here and arm you with what you can and cannot do with your HTC devices. And hopefully not share more incorrect info into the arguments.

First, you should know what is ROOT, S-ON/OFF and Unlocked Bootaloader? All of these don’t depend on each other. I’ll show more info to let you know what each of these clearly.

ROOT (SuperUser/SuperSU)

What is ROOT? Actually, gain a ROOT access which means you can get the mastery of your Android devices. In short, ROOT is that essentially means running a program without any restrictions. After rooting, you’ll get an APP called SuperUser/SuperSU. This kinda of app allow you to choose whether or not to allow an app to run with root access. In other words, SuperSU is the one who grants the highest priority to your installed app; what’s more, you can un-root your device with this app.

S-ON/S-OFF

S-OFF means you have complete control of the phone. Security off, do whatever you want from whatever mode you want. HTC devices are shipped with Security on (S-ON) to protect your system software configuration (such as the Bootloader, radio, boot, recovery, system and others).  An S-OFF phone can show that it still has a locked bootloader, you could wipe the kernel, bootloader, and everything out and be stuck with a phone with no operating system and no way to do anything.

Unlocked bootloader

All HTC phones ship with a locked bootloader.  An unlocked bootloader generally means you’re able to put a custom ROM on the phone, or “flash a ROM.”  In the way we use it, an unlocked bootloader is taken to mean being able to write to partitions on the phone’s internal memory that the operating system lives on. This is done from a level of operations called recovery.

Unfortunately, some people have issues with the warning that you might be voiding your warranty. They take this to mean, “you do this, we know who you are, if anything goes wrong with our product, you’re out $500.”  That’s not what the warning says though, and since most of you are Sprint customers, you should know you deal with Sprint for warranty work, not with HTC. Sprint and HTC both have a history of taking unlocked phones and repairing them.  In fact, you can check out the official Sprint policy here. As for HTC’s policy, I’m still waiting for someone to loudly complain they were denied due to using the unlock website. I’ve been waiting for a year. It may have happened, but it’s not commonplace.

One more thing you should know: Having an unlocked bootloader does not mean you have root. You just have the ability to flash a ROM, which generally will contain a root-giving program.

Hope all of these info are helpful for you all.

Five reading apps that Android Users should must-have

In the digital era we live, everything is being packed into one device that can conquer any task. Like the iPhones, iDevices, Android tablet and Android Smartphones. You can watch movies, listen to music, play games, socialize with friends and family, and you can even deal with your daily work & business with the apps of your smartphone and tablets. Talking about the favorite books you indulge in and some words you are swept away that capture you for hours. App Store is for iDevices users, the Play Store which is daunting to find the right app for Android Users. Luckily, we’re here to list the top five reading apps in the Play. Hit the break to get started.

Google Play Books

Frankly speaking, the people who prefer to keep things in-house. Google Play Books should be the better choice. Google provide this way to supply books directly through their Play Store with more than 4 million books (and growing). You can also purchase books from the same place you grab apps, games, magazines, and music rather than having to weasel around another interface.

When you open the Play Books, it will display the recent and recommended books which is convenient for many readers to get the good books quickly. What’s more, if you’d like to see more of what you have in your library, just click “See All” and all the books you have will appear. Don’t have any books just yet? No problem. At the top left, just tap on the “book” icon and select Shop. Then the Play Store will be opened and an abundance of books will be made available to you. As almost every book app does, free samples can be downloaded. Once you’ve been hooked, just buy the full version and it is yours for good. Once you’ve got that book downloaded, you’re ready to read! Google did a fantastic job making sure the experience is as simple as possible.

Kindle

Talking about the e-books, there should be no argument that Amazon is responsible for so many companies wanting in on the e-book craze. It comes to be very popular since they started selling the Kindle e-reader in 2007, and rightfully so because they are excellent at what they do. The Kindle is now extends across multiple platforms, allowing you to take your books from a Kindle e-reader to an Android phone/Tablet or to an iPad.

An Amazon account should be one of the essential factors while using Kindle. Sign in your account and Amazon will automatically sync books directly to your smartphone or tablet. Similarly to Play Books, it has the slide out menu which will present you with a slew of options. And yes, that is a documents section listed. Back to the books. Heading over to the Kindle Store will let you select from millions of books. Books will appear right in the library after being purchased.

Wattpad

Who doesn’t love something that’s free? How about more than 20 million free e-books? That’s exactly what is being offered by Wattpad. This app is really about the readers. While there are free classics from famed authors, readers can generate content for consumption by others. This idea promotes creativity among readers and Wattpad allows them to comment and interact with one another. Of course, your favorite genres are covered including anime, something that many other services tend to overlook.

The interface of Wattpad also highlights the importance of the reader. Prior to downloading a particular book, the amount of reads, votes, and comments are displayed; therefore, prospective readers know whether or not a book is worth there time. To go along with its social aspect, Wattpad has a news feed so readers know what their friends are interested in and remain in the loop.

NOOK

To stay relevant in the digital world, Barnes & Noble have their NOOK brand. Just like Amazon, it includes a variety of e-readers and tablets.

To try and stand out from others, Barnes & Noble has themes with custom backgrounds and text colors. Also, there is an in-app dictionary so bookworms can quickly add to their vocabulary without having to use another app. Barnes & Noble offers magazine subscriptions for more than 1,000 publications and some have a two week trial attached. Incentives are always the key in gaining users and Barnes and Noble knows which to offer. Books for children are pushed to the forefront as well, something that you won’t find in other apps. Perhaps that is why there are custom themes.

Audible

Audible offers you a very unique choice. As the name suggests, it’s all about sound. The reading is done for the user. All they have to do is listening. A major plus about Audible is the fact that you can multitask with your phone while using the app. Listen to books being read to you while you text friends, browse the web, and post on social networks.

The app has a very fun interface for people interested in a new approach. It is designed just like a music streaming app. There’s buttons for pause, bookmark, and rewind. It’s designed  for people that are busy and don’t have time to sit down and read, Audible is great to listen to. Just keep in mind that Audible is not free. However, it offers you your first listen for free.

Do you have a favorite book reader app that I missed? Let me know.
