    So... er... I'm new to this.

    I want to root a Moto E (2nd Gen) phone.

    I have no admin access to a PC, though I have one.
    So it's best if I could do this straight from my phone. I also searched the forums here, but you know. This search engine is greeeaaat.

    I've heard of KingoRoot, but when I saw reviews, they said that it bricked/random reboots, ect.

    Has anyone used this, and what are the downfalls?

    Does anyone have any other solutions?

    I used it to root my LG g3, it worked well, but then I uninstalled it as supersu is better to manage permissions.
    Another solution could be getting an administrator account on your pc.

    So SuperSU worked for you?

    Did you lose any data or anything?
    Also, this is just general stuff, but, do I need any free space? I only have around 600mb left. :rofl2:

    it depends on the device (even can depend on carrier if it's not unlocked,) you may or may not be able to root without pc
