You can disable the mcrypt warning in the config.inc.php file.

mcrypt is not required to use phpmyadmin.

You have to change the $cfg['McryptDisableWarning'] variable in your config file.

1. It's not phpMyAdmin problem, it's mysql's

You need to grant permission for 'root' user to access MySQL DB from specific IP

Use this command in mysql console.

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'your host IP';

2. It's phpMyAdmin's error that the only fix is install another version (as far as I know).
If you use auth_type 'config' or 'http' then it won't be a problem anymore.
