How Do I Root My Samsung Galaxy Phones? 
1. First and foremost, you have to enable USB deburging mode on your Samsung phone. To do this:
>>>> goto "settings" on your phone
>>>> scroll down and find "about phone"
>>>> tap on "build number" 7 times
>>>> A text will pop up telling you that you are now a developer
>>>> now go back to settings and tap developers option
>>>> look for USB deburging and enable it. You are done enabling developers option.

2. Install the kingo root app you downloaded earlier in your PC

3. Open/run the kingo root app and make sure your PC is connected to the internet if you don't have Samsung Galaxy drivers  already installed in your PC because the app will have to install the drivers to enable it root your Samsung smartphones.
You will see something like this because your phone is not yet connected.

4. Now connect your Samsung smartphone to the PC using an original USB cord. 
NOTE: Once its connected, don't tamper with your phone again, don't remove the USB, don't shake it or do anything that will disconnect it!

5. At this stage, you will see the name of your phone and its model. In this case, I used Samsung Galaxy note2 as I earlier said.

6. One great thing about kingo app is that it shows you simple guidelines as you perform the rooting operation. So make sure you read the guidelines in each step.

7. After connecting your phone, the drivers will start installing automatically. So wait for few minutes while it gets installed. Don't shake or operate your phone!

8. After the drivers has been installed, it will prompt you to disconnect your phone for complete driver installation to take effect. So disconnect your phone at this point.

9. Reconnect after the completion of full driver installation

10. Now your Samsung Galaxy Smartphone will start rooting. It may take up to 6 minutes so wait while the rooting process is being done.

11. After successful rooting you will get a message like this. Now disconnect your USB cable and check your phone apps menu. You should see  "SuperUser app"
Your phone is now rooted. Enjoy the power of flexibility.
