How To Root Panasonic P55 Android Smartphone

Panasonic P55 is a decent quality Android smartphone, which comes with a huge 5.5-inch smart touchscreen display powered by a 1.2 GHz processor. The device also has 1 GB RAM, a good quality 8 mega pixel camera, and a 2500 mAH battery which will be good for people who are looking for longer talk-time hours. The P55 smartphone runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system.

If you have bought this Panasonic smartphone and looking for a way to root it, so that you can install custom ROM firmware or to install applications which only supports the device with root privileges or to uninstall the bloat ware that comes pre-installed in your device, then you are in the right webpage. Here, I have given a tutorial with step by step instructions to root Panasonic P55 smartphone.

WARNING: Rooting your device will void its warranty and you won’t be able to claim it back. Also, sometimes rooting your device might get it bricked. So, if that happens don’t held me or Android Root Guides team responsible. Proceed with CAUTION.

Root Panasonic P55


1) The rooting procedure given here is not a data-loss process, but it won’t hurt to take backup of personal data’s in your Panasonic smartphone using appropriate apps.

2) You will need to enable USB Debugging mode in your device. Once done, you will need to download P55 USB drivers and install it in your computer so that you can connect your device with it successfully.

3) Make sure that your smartphone has a good battery backup. Also, ensure that you have deactivated Antivirus programs in your computer as they tend to interrupt the rooting procedure.

Once you have finished these prerequisites, you can move on to the main rooting tutorial that I have given below.

Tutorial To Root Panasonic P55:

1) To get started download Kingo Android Root rooting tool and install it in your computer.

2) Next, connect your smartphone to the computer with the help of original USB data cable. If the USB drivers for your device are properly installed, the connection with the computer will be successful.

3) Now, run the Kingo Android Root application and let it identify your device. It may take a minute or two. Once your device is identified by Kingo Android Root, it will show you a root option.

4) Just press the big “Root” button to start the rooting procedure. It will get completed within a minute or two. Once it is done, you will get a confirmation message along with a message asking for you to reboot your device. You can also disconnect your smartphone from the computer.

That’s it. Now you have successfully finished rooting your Panasonic P55 smartphone. To confirm the rooting process, look for SuperSU app in your device. If it is there (it will be there), then the rooting process is successful. Also, you can use the Root Checker app from Google Play store to confirm your device’s root privileges.

If you encounter any issues while following this tutorial, do let me know using the comments section below.

  1. Is there any Custom ROM available for P55 which is better than stock?

    Is there way to move apps to SD without rooting?
    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi,

    Try app2SD for moving normal files. For moving preinstalled files, you will have to root your device. And regarding stock ROM, I will look for one and will let you know.

  3. ok i rooted my p55 with kingo root. and SU is installed. but SU binary is not updating. asking for CWM, but no CWM for my device. my main requirement is to install apps to sd as internal memory in p55 is less. even after rooting and having apps2sd i am unable to move apps to sd. the apps2sd app is showing the list of apps that can be moved, but when i click it, it opens the application in storage and the option to move to ext sd is not there. is it possible to enable usb otg support on p55?
    please can you help.
    the device is running on 4.4.2.

  4. Hi,

    I am not sure why you are not able to move the apps from App2SD as usually the application works very well and do that function properly. I will look for a solution and will let you know soon.

  5. Thanks Satish,

    I could root my P55 successfully. Is there any custom ROM better than KitKat 4.4for this phone.

  6. I am facing same problem apps not installing in ext sd card
    App2sd showing error : “no need to move sdcard share the same disk with os”
    there are so many app2sd apps please provide link

  7. It just opens App Info and there is no option there to move apps.
    May be swap internal to external is answer anyone has tried it for P55??

  8. as i already told, i rooted my p55 with kingo root and succeeded, SU was installed. after that i installed many apps from playstore to try to move apps to ext sd card. but none of them work. i tried link2sd, sd swapper, kitkat sd fix, kitkat ext sd patch and so on. the problem seems to be with kitkat 4.4.2, it says your external storage is emulated from internal storage. you can only read from external storage, cannot write onto it. i tried to change the script on Es file manager of platform.xml, but no luck. i even downloaded android sdk tools and tried to set default install location to ext sd card (location2), but not working. the only app that saves to ext sd is super backup that saves apps backed up onto ext sd card!
    next i tried to upgrade from 4.4.2 to lollipop, i found a custom rom on xda devlopers, but i am unable to dowload the links from site.

    because p55 is rebranded coolpad 7298d, i searched for the custom roms for coolpad 7298d and found some, but all are in chinese, not able to decipher anything!
    can you help? can you post a step by step procedure article so that all users are benefited.
    thanks in advance.
