Hi, I have an LG Motion 4G from Metro PCS and I just tried rooting it according to the instructions here. I noticed after that the link to the steps is labeled "LG Optimus" I don't know if it's the wrong one or it works for both. Anyways here's where I'm stuck...

I downloaded 'o4xr.zip' and extracted it to 'C:\'

Made sure "charge only" "USB debugging" and "unknown sources" were ticked

Downloaded "IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk" (onto the computer and copied it to my phone)

Installed "IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk" on my phone via 'All In One ToolBox's' batch installer, then opened it. I saw the screen that said "Hello World" and I did 'turn off and restart"

It didn't take longer than usual to reboot, but after it did I ran command prompt and typed in "cd C:\o4xr" that worked fine and it came up with "O4XR:" where I typed "root". After that it said

"DON'T TOUCH THE DEVICE OR UNPLUG WHILE ROOTING!
PUSH FILES
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *"

It never rebooted automatically, I even tried restarting it myself and removing the backup and it still doesn't work. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? That would be a big help... Thank you!

If you read back earlier in the thread you'll see that the command prompt doesn't work, at least not if you type that file path. There is an extra layer with another "04xr" folder so you either need to use that path (04xr\o4xr) to get to it, or just forget the command line and navigate to it in Windows then double-click root.bat and it will run.

ok, so it said there was no directory for "o4xr\o4xr" but when i ran the "root.bat" (C:\o4xr\root) it just did the same thing.

Just open the o4xr folder, and move the other o4xr folder to your c:

this way all you need to type is

cd c:\o4xr
enter
root
enter

Lol, ok so this is kinda funny... i had taken off the backuptester and was downloading the drivers posted on page 6, i had left open the command prompt and was going to re-copy the backup and try again. Then as soon as i see "LG drivers successfully installed!" command prompt popped up and finished itself and rebooted my phone in a flash. i guess it rooted because im now able to access SuperSu. but should i be worried that the backup wasnt on my phone when it happened? also, what are some necessary things i need now that my phone is rooted? i dont know too much about the possibilities of superuser permissions.

Without recovery yet be cautious

There are no ROMS yet(AKA no recovery)-watch that with the text-if it continues to do that you might want to revert back to stock/unrooted until recovery is established

Not sure why but has happened with my Esteem too.
My son tried rooting his Motion on his laptop-would not do it. Follow the same direction on my laptop and rooted on the first try.
ADB drivers were not installed on his laptop automatically when the Motion was plugged in but uploaded immediately on my laptop when USB debugging was enabled.

Default worked fine for me.

Great instructions worked first try. Glad I read and didn't try using CMD prompt. Just ran root.bat Thanks to all who contributed. Eveything works great just can't get wifi tethering to work. Only works for google websites. Any help would be welcome.

Ok, so it looks like there's going to be no recovery so I will just try rooting my phone. Questions:

The LG Optimus Guide is the same thing for this phone?

Will I lose my contacts if I have to recover/reset?

Metro uses OS fingerprinting to block tethering. You'll have to install a user agent switcher computer side and tell it you're Android. I use Firefox with user agent switcher. Works a charm, just watch the amount of data or they might get suspicious.

I think if you switch ua to Mac it will also work. I have been able to load full web pages on my phone as a Mac user agent but not as a desktop ua.

gbiggie i dont have the lg motion and was trying to root it for a friend but i did noticed while trying to use a wifi tether app that required no root that the phone's hotspot kept turning on like the actual mobile hot spot spot app that comes with the phone and kept telling me you have to add it to your plan to use it so my question is do u think we can uninstall that app and then use the tether no root app?

noob question here,
Quote:
3. Then download the app "IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk" from that site/post as well and copy it to your phone to the root of your sd card
what do you mean by "root of my Sd card"

EDIT: NM

i do have a question about the "superSU" step.

when i got here it didnt give me an option to update, only to open.

EDIT: NM it all worked and im rooted. thanks guys!

my pc was really slow to install the lg drivers and recognize the phone the first time I plugged it in, you have to wait for that before it will root properly, even though windows may see it and the sd, the lg drivers won't be ready.

also the phone seems a little bit slower after rooting, removed the sysbackup program right after i confirmed root, rebooted but just feels a little slower on the home screens and loading the app drawer.

Drivers that failed to retreive from Windows Update initially were then successfully updated from the copied/installed files automatically.
Just bought the Motion about 3 hours ago, Setttings > Connectivity I don't see "Installer" mode, I do have a "LG Software" option. I enabled it, but got a failure to install drivers on the PC. Windows 7 Ultimate (x64), Android 4.0.4.. Will try the manual downloaded drivers.

Correction/Update - the "Installer" mode is what you get when you select the LG software mode. I just installed them, it waits for the signal from the LG software package. D/L'ed the LG Drivers and B2CApp from LG's website. Now will see if I can root it, for Tibo .unless someone has a better app?
Just want a way to backup everything.

So I've been able to SUCCESSFULLY root two LG Motions with this procedure. Thank you there; but I only have two questions.
The phone is wanting to keep updating. I have Titanium Backup, but to freeze OTA update is only available in the PRO version. So can anyone say if the update is a fix or upgrade? I mean if it's going up to Jellybean (only in a perfect world), cool I would want it. Anything else, nah. So is there any other way to circumvent the update, seeing as I can't use Titanium to freeze it?

3. Then download the app "IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk" from that site/post as well and copy it to your phone to the root of your sd card
4. Now open Settings>scroll down to security and check unknown settings
5. Then go to developer options in settings and check usb debugging
6. Now on a file explorer on the root of your sd card install "IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk


im stuck and i dont know what im doing wrong....when i dl "is11lg_systembackuptest.signed.apk" it dl's as a zip. then i found the zip package and drag n dropped it to my sd card. i tried extracting it first on the comp then putting it on the card. i also tried putting it onto the card as a zip file and extracted it through es file explorer with no luck of finding the ".apk" that i have to install. i hope i explained this clearly. can anyone help me out?

Anywhere on the phone. Use a file manager (I use es file explorer) and install the app.

Default A few things

Okay first Question will the unbrick guide take away root? And I highly recommend that we shouldn't uninstall system apps because that may be the reason why some of y'all are having problems. Remember our phone can DISABLE apps.
