Hi All,
See if anyone has any advice for Rooting my Lucid 2. I've been getting the errors listed below, appears the file system is well locked up. And this is what i've done to attempt to correct it.... Got the MetroPCS drivers for the 870. I've went and followed the Unbrick/Unroot Lucid 2 walkthru and flashed the KDZ. And didn't even get stuck in a loop. But one thing that was different then any instructions I've seen, to factory reset the phone I was to hold down the down volume key and power on the device. This actually put my phone into safemode, never prompted to reset the device. But I did go and factory reset my phone under the menu anyway... but still getting the same result. FYI I did try to apply the root patch while in safe mode and got the same errors.

Thanks in advance for your support,

Unhappy Downloading Update...

Phone just tried to autodownload an update to something not from the PlayStore. Was unsure as to what it was so i turned off my data connection. Anyone else experiencing this?


*Edit* So i re-enabled the data went to software update, it found a new version and i selected reject. Suppose that might keep me safe for a bit?

wow a software update?.... I dont really want to know what will happen if i try updating from a rooted state. Does anyone know what the update does? does it actually address some of the phone's problems or does it just try to re-lock us out of the root?

Probably both, but you can downgrade with my unbrick guide.

sammyz, thanks for your assistance with this phone that i'm kicking myself for getting. I dont mind being a guinea pig for the software update impact on a currently rooted device if your fairly certain the unbrick guide will fix it. Unless you suggest unbrick first, thanks a ton.

After software update root method failed. I ran the phone with the update and noticed no other changes. So I downgraded and rerooted phone. Also dialer codes have never worked for me they send me directly to vzwsupport Or request an unlock code.

Ran the script about 4 times. No superuser in app drawer and no root access via root checker basic.
Any thoughts? I have usb debugging enabled.

I have the same problem as whitemike, same firmware version, vs87011a.
Is there no root exploit for this version? Do I need to downgrade to an older firmware?

UPDATE: This exploit doesn't work on VS87011A. I downgraded to VS87010B and this was able to root it first try.

UPDATE 2: Thought I'd do a little experimenting... took OTA update to get back to VS87011A. Had replaced SuperUser with SuperSU (more reliable) and also installed Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper and did an SU backup. Not sure if either was necessary, but I still have root on VS87011A. In the About it thinks root status is "Unrooted", but all my apps say otherwise.

Yes, follow the instructions in this thread:
[GUIDE] Unbrick/Unroot Lucid 2 VS870[KDZ]

Be sure to check out my post in that thread if you have any trouble with detecting the phone in Download Mode.

Another thing I did not mention is after taking the OTA update to VS87011A, my phone would no longer lock. Pressing power just turned off the screen and pressing it again would just wake it up, but no slide to unlock screen. I ended up having to back everything up with Titanium Backup, do a full wipe, and restore. A full wipe did NOT unroot the phone, I only had to reinstall SuperSU. Now I have everything working 100%, and rooted, on VS87011A.

I did catch a reference in another thread of the possibility of something that could root VS87011A so you don't have to do the downgrade and re-upgrade, but I can't seem to find that thread.

I think they were talking about using motochopper, But since im already rooted on the old firmware, i would have to first factory reset/unroot, OTA update, then re-root. So it has not been worth it for me to try yet, but I think the thread that you are looking for is here: (see second post)

CWM Touch Recovery for Lucid 2

Motochopper is floating around somewhere on the xda developers site.

Yep, that's it!
@richestd, be sure to try Motochopper first. Downgrading, rooting, and re-upgrading takes a lot of time. Then please come back and let us know if it worked for you.

I tried the Motochopper root first. When I check, it indicates that my phone is rooted but it shows supersu; no busy box or anything else. How do i get busy box? Thanks

no need ,lg root check can remove all root tools"(root browser,rootvalidator,frameroot) in safe mode
when the phone is shutdown ,vol down +power can go to "safe mode"
and vol up + power is clear you phone.
maybe safe mode can ota update?

Not sure what you're trying to say there, godmd5. In this thread, we want to root, not unroot. OTA update did NOT unroot my phone. Not sure if it just doesn't, or if OTA Rootkeeper made a difference.

Did it ever work in the first place?


This happens to me too. People say that if they already have a hotspot plan it won't crash and tethering will work...
Apparently this phone has something that blocks any hotspot attempt unless you have it in the first place. If we get a good ROM made though, we should in theory be able to tether for free with apps like foxfi or one of the 100s of other hotspot apps. Unfortunately, the community for this phone is really small, and I'm not one of the developers....

Here's an odd problem. I get through the batch script and it runs into the permissions denied error. But in download mode shows rooted. Even though su isn't there. I even tried flashing back to the stock firmware and I got the same issue after rerunning the script. Even tried manually following along and get hung up at kill and mount. Any thoughts?

Just use the most current firmware and search for the latest version of "motochopper" on xda developer forums. It will work for this phone even though it is not made for it. After that you can add cwm and the kernel and such

Sounds like it can't find the file adb.exe. Do you see it in the folder that you extracted the rooting files into?

If so, are you double-clicking from within Windows to run it? If yes, try opening a Command Prompt window and use cd commands to change into that folder from the command prompt and run it from there.

Could be a driver problem too. I know it took a long time for adb to be able to find my phone. I had some other phone driver that thought it was for the lucid 2. Try uninstalling all phone drivers then plugging the phone in and letting it do its thing. Also try all the different charging modes.

Also, Did you upgrade back to the latest firmware? I'm not sure but mottochopper may only work on the newest firmware

Is the rooting files in the Motochoppe firmware? Where can I find it?
I just download the Motochoppe firmware. Duple click on it and click on run.bat. I did not see the rooting files in there."monochopped.zip".

I think that is part of the problem. If you just double-click on run.bat, it probably doesn't know where to find the other files. Let's say you extracted all the files into a folder called motochopper on your desktop.

Open command prompt, type:

cd c:\users\yourname\desktop\motochopper
run.bat

"yourname" would be whatever your name on your computer is.

Huh weird... I'm no expert by any means, and it seems like the more knowledgeable people have left us alone... But anyway, here is a method that almost certainly will work (though it might be a little excessive:

Factory reset AND do the unbrick/unroot method on this forum.

Ota update to latest firmware (before anything) and turn USB Debugging on.

Try a different computer if possible, if not Search in your computer for all the drivers that have to do with lg or android phones then delete them. Now plug the phone in and let the installer reinstall the drivers.

Delete motochopper off your computer and redownload (in the case of corrupt files) and put it in a folder somewhere like c:\moto.

Now give it a shot when running motochopper as an administrator.
If it fails, switch your phone to a different mode (camera to mpt or whatever) and try again.
If that doesn't worK, try PMing some of the guys who worked on developing (many of them posted in this topic)

Hope this helps, sorry if not....

I saw on Google you can also get the "adb server is out of date. killing..." message if something else is using adb, like HTC Sync. Do you still have software for another phone installed perhaps? Some posts about this error, some people have said it's just a nuisance and the adb functions actually worked.

Also, are you sure you're not rooted? Kind of looks like the Spirited Away process might have worked despite the error msgs.

Unhappy Spirited away not working after multiple attempts

I have windows 8 so i was wondering if someone has found a way to make it work with that. My problem is that everything fails to copy. For everything meant to install it says
"failed to copy 'name of thing here' to system/whatever: Read-only file system.
I was wondering if someone can confirm it is because of windows 8 or am i being stupid and not doing something i need to. Debugging is on, all drivers are up to date, have it connected. Anyone?

Anyone know if Motochopper works on VS87012A?

UPDATE: It does NOT.
VS87012A can be rooted using Framaroot and choosing Gandalf exploit.
