I'am asking about rooting the phone programmatically(elevating user privileges to do anything), not about get root access for my app if the phone was rooted, so is it possible and how to?

I think that would be a crack of the Android programming and security model - not something that gets discussed in a respectable forum like this one.

This sounds a lot like you want to write an app to hack into a phone?

No, I want to understand the mechanism of apps that are similar to Kingoroot after rooting my phone using it.

It should not be possible to root an Android phone programmatically, without the owner / user of the phone knowing about it. If that would be possible, there would be a huge security bug in Android, and if Google knows about it they would fix it very quickly.

Doing something like this is only something that hackers and crackers would want to do, and they would not have good intentions.

Be aware that hacking into someone's phone or computer is illegal in many countries and trying to do something like this can get you into trouble.

Additionally, given that phone hacking is illegal in many regions CodeRanch will have no part in discussing how to do it.

Locking thread.
