Installing KnowIT on to a rooted Android device

If you are looking to install KnowIT on to a non-rooted Android device please see below.

If you wish to access all of KnowITs features on your employees Android device you have to have rooted their device first before you install KnowIT.  Digital Endpoint has provided rooting guides for many popular Android devices which you can see here.

Once you have rooted the device successfully and you can see a new application installed called SuperSU on your employees Android device it means that the device has been rooted.  Depending on the Android device being used, having rooted the device may not be enough to access all of KnowIT's features.
