Should busy box be installed if I am going to install gapps?
Could you recommend me a gapps package suitable with this model?

It ok if you want install busybox, busybox contains root commands and it ok if you install it. Just search at google gapps package that suitable for your operating system. Recommended that you use minimal package.

The SU binary is not installed, so no root permission.
How to solve this?
Thank you.

su binary on the 4.4Root.zip, you must install it from recovery.follow the ink on the requirement section to install custom recovery then back to this guide to install 4.4root.zip that contains Su binary.

Dear admin,
The kingroot has been installed, but the su binary is not installed.
So I need to reinstall it again via recovery, right?
Thanks.
