[Solved] Replace Kingroot with SuperSU

#1
(This post was last modified: 08-23-2016, 02:27 AM by Fingers7606. )

Hello guys... I'm looking for a way to replace Kingroot with SuperSU. I've tried Supersume and it ruined my device(bootloop). 
Is there another way to replace Kingroot, that supports both Android 5.1 and Kingroot 4.9.2? Note that I DO NOT have a custom recovery, so flashing is out of the question. 
Thanx in advanced.

Is youe phone properly rooted first?.
Try dowloading supersu from playstore if it installs then you can disable kingroot from app manager
What is your phone model?

Yes, I believe my tablet is properly rooted(atleast Root Checker says it's rooted). SuperSU from playstore doesn't work(fails to update binaries). My device is Vodacom Power Tab 10(Android 5.1, rooted with Kingroot 4.9.2)

Well as I've mentioned, I don't have custom recovery and I CANNOT create 1(unless if you have a way to create a custom recovery for MT6580 without using MTK Tools).

To replace kinguser with superuser u will need to

download and extract mrw folder(from the above link) and move it into your internal storage

Open Terminal emulator and type :

Su
Allow root permission

Type :

sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh

It might display some error, at the end it will launch supersu or open supersu manually.
Update su binary normal, then reboot.

Then if you are unable to install supersu binary using your stock recovery there's no way you can install without a custom recovery

Is this method compatible with Android 5.1 and Kingroot 4.9.2?

Method didn't work. SuperSU says "Installation Failed" and when I reboot I get bootloop. Any solutions/suggestions?
