Default [ROOT] One-click root for LG Connect 4G :: 3/3/2012

k0nane, Shabbypenguin, and bliss present...
One Click Root for LG Connect 4G

About

Oh hello, Connect users! I'll be brief - your phone is close to the LG Spectrum. It can be rooted the same way. So we didn't actually have to do anything! The talented Dan Rosenberg already rooted the LG Spectrum (see here) and was kind enough to post a one-click for Windows and OS X/Linux. Myself and Shabbypenguin don't have much to add - it works, Mr. Rosenberg (bliss/@djrbliss) did all the work, you all have him to thank.

But, without further ado...

How to Install

Your device must be in USB Debugging mode. To turn it on, go to Settings > Applications > Development and check the box.

Linux/Mac: Connect your device to your PC, unpack the archive, and run run.sh. You may need to chmod 755 run.sh.

Windows: Install the LG Spectrum USB drivers (download), unpack the archive, and open run.bat.

Yes, but do not delete Talk, or anything that starts with "Google" in its filename. Keep backups just in case.

you should do a google search for our names :P

we like to get the ball rolling on phones that may not otherwise see any kind of dev love. myself and k0nane have been involved in the rooting/rom/cwming of a good number of phones. root is done, i have a test cwm that is available... however at this t ime with no return it makes it VERY risky in that you wont be able to get back to stock should something go amiss :/

I downloaded the spectrum_drivers.zip file and extracted this file: LG VZW_United_WHQL_v2.4.1.exe .
That's great, but my LG Connect is on MetroPCS.
Do you have a spectrum driver file for MetroPCS?
thx.

Default LG VZW_United_WHQL_v2.4.1.exe

When I begin the run process on the Verizon executable, the first box states it's the Verizon app. I hit "cancel" to stop the installation at that point.

Different network. Both are CDMA, but MetroPCS is a different network and I'm concerned that the Verizon LG Connect might have different Android OS tweaks than the MetroPCS LG Connect does.

Did you create this .exe? If so, can you create one for MetroPCS LG Connects? Do you test on Connect phones from both operators?

Looking to hear your thoughts...
thx

Default remote control of pc to get this to work

this makes me nervous now;

"...i trusted them enough to take control over my pc to try and get this rolling but we couldnt get ADB to work luckly someone else showed up that could and then boom we had root ive already deleted 18 bloatware apps also nothing will go wrong with ur phone...."

Why did someone need to remotely access your pc to get this to work? Also, what if I don't have someone else to show up? Do I freeze my pc, or brick my phone?

Can you clarify why you needed remote access to your pc to get this to work?

Also, I'm assuming Gingerbreak doesn't work on this phone like it did on my last LG. Yes?

because they did not have the phone nor have they seen or messed with one yet what were they suppose to do magically make the exploit from scratch , they were gonna root my phone for me from my pc by doing their magic i watched everything they did and not once did i feel like they were doing something they should have not been , TRUST ME YOUR PHONE IS GONNA BE FINE , but do as you wish man keep the bloat if you like its your loss

Doesn't work for me.. it just stops on *Waiting for Device*

Although the "Debugging" mode is grayed out when the USBs plugged in. That might be why isn't not working, but how do I check it?

What rlwallace said has absolutely no connection to what you are going to do with what you see here. He was helping us test drivers and root methods.

That's exactly why it's not working. As the instructions state, you have to check that box, which you can't do while it's plugged in.

We are aware that the drivers have notes about Verizon in them. Trust us, they work for - and as of this time, are the ONLY drivers that work for - this device.

using something like root explorer or similar you can go in and mount the system as r/w and remove the superuser.apk from /system/app and su from /system/bin

that will unroot ya completely

That's expected behavior. This device is superior to the Indulge in every way, including in the way LTE functions. The S3 has LTE as part of the main SoC, meaning no separate chip, meaning better battery life. (EDIT: That actually may be/probably is the S4. Still, more mature LTE chip.) But this isn't really suited for this thread.

Any issues such as these are completely unrelated. Clear data for Market, Google Services Framework, and Talk in Settings > Applications > Manage Applications.

Different network. Both are CDMA, but MetroPCS is a different network and I'm concerned that the Verizon LG Connect might have different Android OS tweaks than the MetroPCS LG Connect does.

Did you create this .exe? If so, can you create one for MetroPCS LG Connects? Do you test on Connect phones from both operators?

Looking to hear your thoughts...
thx
wouldnt matter on the PC no how, the hardware is the same so the drivers are the same either carrier would got em from LG and at most just add in thier own 'branding' etc. With Verizon they prolly just added the bs for their bloatware which they want you to run on your PC too. ALL the functionality stuff is all the same from LG tho.

you ppl really need to be a lil more appreciative of what konane n crew have done n not be so paranoid. I know both of these guys n some of the others not mentioned like djrbliss. You're safe n can trust what they post n what they tell you!!!

I'm stumped..

1. I check debugging (then connect via USB)
2. I run the LG version drivers and let them install
3. Then I run.bat
4. It either stops on "Waiting for Device" or once it went to "No deamon running" then "Starting deamon" and stopped.

I have no idea what's going on..

Make sure you select Internet connection once connected via USB.

Your device must be in USB Debugging mode. To turn it on, go to Settings > Applications > Development and check the box.

Still stuck on waiting for device...

@PlayfulGod - It's check when the USB isn't attached, but once I attach the USB it greys out. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it's defiantly checked BEFORE it's greyed out.

EDIT: Nevermind, setting it to internet connection and THEN applying the change. The bug appeared at the top and it worked just fine ^^

Thanks for bearing with me!

Default Stuck

I'm not exactly sure whats going on. I Installed the phone drivers on my computer and then plugged my phone in. I saw on the computer screen it said it was sending drivers to the phone but I didn't see any little android guy on my phone or anything to confirm that it actually did install the drivers. It showed that the usb was plugged in and I was in debugging mode but didn't see anything else saying that the drivers were installed on my phone correctly. So I just assumed that the drivers were installed in which now I don't really believe that they are, but I moved on to rooting the phone. I run the run.bat file and it says,

Press any key to continue...

Waiting for device...

daemon not running. Starting it now*

daemon started successfully*


And then it just sits there any doesn't do anything. Any help would be great. This is the first time I have ever rooted a phone but I followed the directions. not sure why it's not working.

Default It says

No it just says,


Press Enter key to root your phone...

Press any key to continue...

Waiting for device...

daemon not running. Starting it now*

daemon started successfully*



It says that the one time and then it just stays there. It isn't locked up or anything but it doesn't ask or do anything else. Just sits there with the cursor blinking. I have tried pushing the enter button and others but that didn't make it do anything either.

And I still don't know if the drivers were installed on the phone correctly. Like I said before I installed the drivers on my computer then plugged in the phone with the usb cable, debugging was turned on and I got the usb icon on the top left hand corner of my phone. And I saw the computer was sending files to the phone it seemed. But I didn't see anything on the phone at all that indicated that it was recieving any kind of update. I read somebody said you should see a little green android guy or something but nothing showed up on my phone.

Also I don't think it matters but everytime I plug my phone into the computer the thing pops up says what do I want to open the files on this device with but I figured that was probably normal.

first before plugging in the phone go to the debugging menu make sure its checked.

Then plug the phone in and amke sure its in debugging you will see a lil android guy if its not there click on usb and click on internet then you will be in debugging and then unclick and click debugging again from the menu. that worked for me i had a lil problem with the drivers aswell

Same thing was happening with mine too. This is what I did:

1. With phone unhook to PC -> go to Settings > Applications > Development > and check USB debugging
2. Connect phone to PC via USB cord.
3. Go to Settings > Connectivity > select Internet Connection > hit Done
4. There should now be a bug on the Connect's notification bar and PC should now install drives from the Connect > Let it do this
5. Run the Verizon drives and let them install completely > PC will then apply drives to Connect
6. Go and run the run.bat

It should work now

Edit: Might want to set it so that "Always Ask" is check in connectivity so it doesn't reset to Mass Storage. This screwed up my first go around after reboot.
