Default rooting

i found that the motochopper tool is the only thing that i got to work on rooting the mach i bought it 3-4 days ago when it first hit the boost stores.
here is the site for the motochoper tool
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2258633
i in no way deserve any credit for this tool i only simply spent 2 hours googling how to root my phone

direct motochopper dl link here
lg driver here



install your drivers if you have not already and unzip the motochopper then run and follow the onscreen instuctions


here is a simplified step by step

0. click this link http://vulnfactory.org/public/motochopper.zip and wait for download and unzip
1. make sure your phone is on :P
2. press the power button and unlock your screen
3. press the menu button (the one on the right bottom corner under your screen)
4. tap settings
5. scroll down
6 tap developer options
7. tap ok if a pop up menu says anything about turning on developer options
8. tap usb debugging
9. tap ok
10. take a usb cable
11. insert the tiny end in your phone
12. insert the big end into your computer
13. now on your computer open motochopper if it isnt already
14. click run not run.sh
15. press any key when the commandprompt pops up
16. press any key again when it tell you (phone will reboot don't be scared)
17. you should now be rooted
(optional part)
18. unplug your phone
19. go back to settings
20. tap security
21. tap unknown sources
22. hit the home key
23. open your browser
24. look up appdroid

I'm about to buy a Mach to replace the Transform Ultra I bricked... Is there anything important we need to know about this process?

#Edit:
No, there's not... Took about ten seconds, no errors, root access and su binary working perfectly.
Thank You, powerkane!

I can vouch for this method. I just performed it on my LG Mach. Root access in less than 1 minute! Thanks powerkane! I upgraded from the Transform Ultra as well, and so far I love the LG Mach!

Edit: Just donated to you and the dude on the xda-developers forum. Cheers!

Thanks so much powerkane! Followed your instructions and it rooted no problem.
Titanium Backup (a must have IMO) confirmed root access. Was able to backup and uninstall chrome.

Thanks again.
