[GUIDE][ROOT] How to Root your LG Optimus 4X HD (O4X P880) - xda-developers


1. Install these drivers from here LGUnitedMobileDriver_S4981MAN37AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3. 7.2.exe - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
2. Download the attached zip file called "o4xr" from here ([GUIDE][ROOT] How to Root your LG Optimus 4X HD (O4X P880) - xda-developers) once downloaded put the extracted files under C:\
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"
7. Once the app is installed open it and then open the power options (hold the power button for 3 seconds) and click power off & restart
8. Once phone turns back on (should be running slow) connect your phone to your computer through USB (charging only).
9. Open the command prompt and enter the command "cd C:\o4xr" then typr "root" (or whatever is the root of your windows system) (no parentheses)
10. Next wait for the script to run and your phone will reboot when that happens uninstall SystemBackupTest DO NOT OPEN IT you will have to run the script again if you do

The script will say this which means your phone has been rooted it should take a few minutes thats it and it's done

I rooted successfully, thank you!
But MYEYES, make sure the 04XR is extracted directly to your HD, which should be the C: drive. Then just run Command Prompt as Admin, put in the C4xr etc, hit enter, then type root, hit enter, and thats it!

Download Superuser and Titanium Backup and you can start deleting junk, be careful!

I dont know what happening but I followed this root method to the T, for my sons LG Motion. When I get to CMD and yes i have admin rights, after the cd C:\o4xr I get to the next line and type root, and I get ""root is not recognized as a internal or external, operable program or batch file"" What am I doing wrong! Thank u

I luv it when break throughs happen like this,,,
OK, so I was having a problem and couldnt figure out why? Well, I use Winzip, and when I right click and click unzip to the same file, it unzips and makes a cloned file of the O4XR file, And when I pasted it to C: it would recognize the o4xr, but wouldnt execute the root, bc the o4xr was like this o4xr/o4xr/"root filles" After I removed the first o4xr file that cloned the original, the root execution worked like a charm.

Jeez christ guys, the links in the beginning of the forum are wrong!!!
They point to the wrong root kit---onxr instead of o4xr. After downloading and running onxr, all of my web browsers stopped working! And superuser was not installed even though the script finished sucessfully.

SystemBackupTest now fails with error message "Unfortunately, SystemBackupTest has stopped" so I'm unable to root correctly.

Any ideas besides running the unbrick process?

All the links in OP are correct probably the only way you can fix is unbrick method

@Gman9831 - i see what's going on. The attached files in the post are correct (point to o4xr) but the link inside the steps in the post point to the wrong file (onxr).

Someone, please clarify the steps in the post intro so that other people don't make the same mistake I did. Thanks!

To clarify, this is the post in question: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1818502

Attached files are good. Links in original post are not.

Yesterday i downloaded all necessary files to root, installed PC drivers, installed system backup test from root of SD card but never attempted to root i just wanted to have all my ducks in a row for when i was ready to root. Then today i had my 4G hotspot turned on and using my other device, when suddenly device losses hotspot connection on my LG i hit the red hotspot button and i get a error saying Unfortunately Settings Has Stopped. Now i am unable to use or open hotspot i can't use screen shoot it says because storage is already in use, i can't update my phone through update screen it says phone is not registered. I called metro they did a system reboot from there end somehow still didn't work. Does anyone know if this had anything to do with me starting the root process? Maybe that test program i installed? Any ideas?

Maybe installing the test program did it, try uninstalling the test program and reboot. If that doesn't work, you may need to unbrick to fix the settings.

Thanks for the great write-up and contributions from all.

I'm new to using the Android O/S as I was an iPhone user for the past few years and JB'd my iPhones, and I would like to Root my LG Motion although I find some of the terminology a bit confusing.

The instructions seem somewhat straight forward, but is there an installer app I need to "Install the drivers" for example?

I'm a bit confused on some of the actions on installing/updating files and drivers as I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the ICS O/S and Rooting.

I'm not asking to be spoon-fed or hand-held, but was wondering if there is a guide to the basics so I don't brick my phone?

In other words, imagine someone with zero knowledge of how to root an Android device reading the instructions and reading "install the drivers" - IDK the process of installing the drivers, so I'm lost on the first step.

I'm assuming I would connect the LG Motion to my PC via USB with USB Debugging turned "OFF" and run the executable driver file v.3.7.2?

Thanks.

Hello,

I am having a problem with the last step using ox4r. When ox4r is running it doesn't get past the "daemon started successfully" prompt. The drivers are updated and the phone was put in charge only mode with usb debugging enabled.

Any help is appreciated thank you!

Are you trying to check it while it's plugged in? If so unplug it then do it.

You may have got a bad download, happened to me, try to download a different root file, and yes it will root both software versions.

Hi all

Thanks aaronmy for risking your phone and bringing root to the LGM

I have tried to make the rooting process a little more automated.

I know some of you guys like to play around with these scripts and stuff, so I am gonna upload what I have done so far.

Making these type of scripts really is not my thing, I usually only put what is needed in.

I am sure some of you can make this really fancy and such.

This zip has all the files that you need

When you run the script it will install the

IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk
Open it
Reboot the phone
Open IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk again
Reboot the Phone again
Open IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk again
Then it will try to push the root files to the right place
Uninstall the IS11LG_SystemBackupTest.signed.apk
And reboot the phone one more time

I called it One Click Root, because that is a pretty common name for these things, but maybe that name is not so appropriate.

anyway have fun

Default time for rooting

This is my first attempt to root a phone, and I'm doing it on the lg motion 4g. I've come to the command prompt screen and the last entry is *daemon started successfully*

It has now been 45 minutes and I was wondering if this is normal or if it's not, what do I do, now?

Thanks,

steveovegas

Drivers probably didn't install correctly, after installing restart your computer.

Okay, i re-installed the drivers, and the root worked
but since rooting i have experienced many problems with my phone,
1. My SD card, it is a 32 gig, very nice San Disk micro SDHC card but my phone began not recognizing it and for a day or two it would connect on and off, i decided to copy the data from my SD card to my computer and switch the SD cards from my tablet and phone, this worked and i have had no problems with the phone or the SD card since, any idea why that happened?
2. I am trying to update my apps, and a few of them update but others download and then when trying to install them my phone pops up the message "insufficient storage space" which is completely untrue i have over 3 gigs left on the internal and over 8 gigs left on the SD card, but i tried deleting some apps anyway, this didn't work, can anyone help?

OK, this method is not working for me.

I installed the drivers, I checked USB debugging, unknown sources, installed the APK, opened it, restarted, did the command prompt cd, then root, the first two lines that were quoted in the original thread appeared in the command prompt, about the daemon. After that, it was about a minute later, it listed a whole bunch of errors, about /su/ directories being missing, and non-existent, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I didn't have the foresight to take a screen shot, or at least block copy the command prompt, but maybe someone can help me out? E-mail me rather than answering here, much better chance I will get the reply.

frrrrrrunkis@comcast.net

Please help, really want a root :-(

EDIT: ok, after this failed attempt, every time i entered settings, i would get a "settings has stopped" message. When i opened my notification bar i would get an "Android UI has stopped" message. Had to do a factory t reset and then restore from backup to get my damn phone back.. Anyone have any idea why thus happened me? Would like to try again, but not if the result is going to be a factory reset...

How do you "install the .apk"?

For us new to Android phones, these instructions aren't of much use as they assume that the user knows how to "install the .apk" when we don't.

Same with "Install the drivers"

How does one install the drivers?

I asked these questions above and received no answer. I'm not asking to be spoon-fed, just for basics.

Anywhere I can find step by step instructions?

Thanks.

okay, like many many people in this thread have said....you do not need to use command prompt.....double click the root.bat file...and it will do it itself..

make sure you'll be on Charging only and usb debugging is enabled..install the apk..open it...restart...plug phone in...double click root.bat and BAM you should have root...it may take a couple retries...but it works..
