no root (i mean to be fair no one has seriously tried, but the guy who rooted the admire, the lg spectrum, lg connect, moto droid 3, droid 4, and just about every other moto phone, has stopped rooting phones)
lg has started using secure boot aka no custom kernels or recovery.
im sure some attain owners that browse this forum can attest that not having recovery sucks for development ;P
Personally I wouldn't get a new phone if it didn't have root. I hate the metro bloatware (and all the other unnecessary system apps I don't use)
On topic of the motion. It is worth it to upgrade from admire just for 4g alone.
It would be nice to have CM9 or hell even CM10 if it got root but everybody is so obsessed with ICS (in my opinion only for the UI changes, with the exception of those of you of course who pay attention to performance changes etc.)
It satisfies many people.
