    I have never rooted a phone before and I would like to root mine, however, I attempted to use kingroot and it wouldn't provide root access. My phone is an Alcatel One touch from Straight Talk running 5.1.1. I was wondering what would be my best option?

    Would you like me to move this to the Alcatel forums so that you can engage with other users?

    There are at least 7 Alcatel phones in the OneTouch family, at least 3 used by Straight Talk. So go to XDA Forums, type alcatel onetouch into the search box (upper right) and choose yours. Then search for rooting methods. The way you root a phone depends on the exact model phone and the version of Android it's running.

    (And, as a beginner, if you don't actually need root for some reason, I wouldn't try it. Rooting, among other things, immediately voids the warranty. And there's a reason for that - with root, you can turn the phone into a hand warmer with one incorrect command.)
