Froze at 35% on my Samsung

Negative Comment by jasonbrown1965
about KingRoot Jan 2017

. . .

Tried this on an old Samsung s4 running Kitkat 4.4.2 ... got to 35% and froze for an hour. Rebooted, nothing stuck.

Tried downloading the PC version from the website, but the software (from an English language page) was in non-English characters, presumably Chinese.
