people here who's is telling that unlocked bootloader and root good. But it's not good,it imposes high security risk.
LG superfan, 14 Nov 2017How to do second step?Search on XDA forum in your phone's model section if supersu script is available. I'm not saying I'm an expert. It worked flawless on my Sony, but I have an older model and I'm on lollipop stock. Not sure if it works on nougat or marshmallow as I didn't try.
If you can't find it ask on the forum. There's always someone nice enough to reply. here's a link: https://www.google.ro/amp/s/forum.xda-developers.com/a310/general/how-to-remove-replace-kingroot-kinguser-t3308989/amp/

- Then you run a script that will replace everything kingroot with supersu.
Easy as pie!
Also,a lot of people have no clue that almost every phone out there has the ability for remote control. The maker cand see and use your phone from a different continent if they want to. Stop being so naive!
There a a lot of things hidden in our phones we have no clue about.
Hahaha keep defending that replika brand.
Meanwhile im getting the XZP for which Sony provides OFFICIAL bootloader unlocking on their website.
An android flagship without root is just another crapple phone - Limited af!

I am don't know the technical capabilities but can xiaomi track me after i have installed a custom ROM? Can custom roms contain tracking tools? What are the trust-able popular roms.

KingRoot and other chinese rood tools trying to install a lot of adware and spyware. So rooting is still individual for different phones. And yes, root is dangerous for many companies. It's easy to install tools to analyze software and it's behavior. Not only OnePlus stealing private data. But without root it's hard to decrypt. That's why they don't want you to know what they do with your private data and don't give you root access. Except Xiaomi and Google.

I think that if they made all phones easier to root, then that would be better, imagine if you can root a phone by a PIN comes with the phone when you buy it.
Awesome, but only a dream
Locked bootloaders etc should be illegal, it should be easy to fully unlock any device without having to go through the kind of rigeramole that firms like HTC put you through to unlock and totally locked devices that cannot or are very hard to unlock should be a no no.
If it's a subsidised carrier phone,then the carrier should be responsible for locking, but should still allow unlocking,if you pay off what you owe on the phone..
I buy my phones outright,their my phones, nobody else's,I should be able to use the full capabilities of the phone if I wish to.
It's like buying a car and finding that although it has 5 years and 4wd,the maker has locked the gearbox to only first three years and disabled the 4wd into front drive only..
Yes,cars do have things like speed regulatures,but there is legislation that either forces them to or that covers the situation and there are some good reasons why unlocking the full capabilities of a car engine will usually void the warrentee,it's almost impossible to damage or destroy a phone just by unlocking it,it would take special code to over-ride the protections built in to cpu/gpu's to stop them melting themselves.
I have never come across one PROVEN case of a phone being destroyed by being unlocked and re-flashed with a new Rom image,plenty bricked by folk trying to unlock them, or flashing wrong image,but not one case of destruction after flashing with different Rom,and image bricked phones can 99% of the time be saved,I've had some good cheap bargains of supposedly permanently bricked phones sold as spares that it has been easy to unbrick,you just have to have the right knowledge and software..
Miserable company. Soon we will hear usual justification by it's headless fans, trolls and bots - "It's ok, everyone do that"
