  • RICHARD And all other guys who want to claim their warranty after successfully ROOTING their Android Phone By ROOT GENIUS should uninstall “King User.apk” by installing another App from Play Store “System App Remover” its the best APP to remove BLOATWARE FALTU Software from your Micromax and Samsung Devices.
