      Delete
    6. When you run root checker there will an agreement that you must allow root checker to use the root permission, if you denied it of course root checker said that your phone is not rooted. Yes it will install kinguser apolication on /system/app that without a root you will not be able to delete it. Just press option on kinguser and select unroot.
      You will not brick you phone if it just root. Brick phone is you will unable to turn it on.
