M5 mini_Mainboard_P3

No, you won't be able to unroot using Kingroot.
To unroot, you would need to flash back stock boot.img & recovery.img then do a factory reset

Thanks a lot. One last question. Is there a high chance of my phone bricking if I wrongly follow a step?

It may, it may also not. But make sure you followed the procedures accordingly.

you'll need to install or reinstall vcom preloader drivers then retry using miracle box.

I just did that, still not working, can you recommend a suitable USB cord?

When I want to backup my firmware in scatter format before I root, should I check all the blocks?
