Tried that, same result. I have admin privileges on the computer I am using, it keeps saying a bunch of stuff about directories being missing in the cmd when it tries to do everything after *dameon started successfully*

EDIT: ok, so after the errors, and the reboot, I opened the signed APK again, and double clicked root.bat, AND IT RAN! Downloading a root checker now, screenie to come.

Ok i am pretty good with this stuff.. I hacked over 100k PSPs (estimation), jailbroken countless iPods and iPhones, my first computer had a virtual ip address of 0.0.0.0, so i generally have a decent handle on shit like this, but with Android, i am a certified n00b. I get most of the terminology, and it is actually quite similar to the psp scene (user mode, kernel access only major difference on the psp its all about kernel mode access, and in Android you need root permission), but with all I am reading, how do i get custom recovery on my motion? What is custom recovery? W what do i need it for? Where can i find roms? Why is it since i rooted, when i try to install like 70% of downloaded apps it says insufficient storage when i have 5gb left on my internal?

Would just like a bit of clarification...

You need to have the LGsystembackup-test-thingy.apk installed.

No no no, thus is exactly what was happening to me too ;-)

After It says all that stuff, and reboots the phone, open the signed apk again, reboot plug in to the PC, run root.bat again, and it should work just fine

Make sure you have the app installed, you have USB debugging on, and that your phone is plugged into your computer.

You mean the ones that users ported over? :P

LG Optimus M was already done with support when it was released. I don't know if anybody else found that to be obvious. I must have been the last person to buy the phone on retail back in the fall of 2011. I just bought the LG Motion 4G so I'm set now.

There probably is a way that can be made possible. If it's possible, I know Sepero can figure it out.

Also, rooting the phone worked fine for me but I noticed a difference in instructions on the original post from xda. The person said to move everything to C:\onxr instead of C:\o4xr. cmd was displaying the same message except it said:

REBOOT
REBOOT AGAIN?!
AGAIN?!

I mean my phone is rooted regardless

Oh, the cmd didn't bother me at all. It's nothing new to me. I guess I did the older tedious method.

Did you install the systembackuptest.apk first? Do you have USB debugging on?

You should read the whole thread, you would have seen i posted a solution to this. After it had all those errors, close the command prompt window, open the apk again, reboot your phone, open root.bat again and it will succeed

Rooted! Just gotta say tho, that these instructions are a little murky... I followed the ones on XDA, that were written a bit more clearly. Just an FYI for anyone trying this and having problems. The first time I tried it with these instructions, and it got me nowhere-- prolly cuz I don't know much about computers/ programs and whatnot. But I tried again using the XDA instructions, and it worked flawlessly.

USB debugging might be unchecked when you upgrade. Some reason mine was off and after I enabled it, root was easy.

Question HELP Step 6: File Explorer.

I've copy/pasted from my win7 pc the "IS11G..." file to my SD card already.

Issue: No file explorers can find the file.

I've tried: File Manager (Rhythm Software), ES File Explorer File Manager (ES APP Group), Root Explorer (Speed Software), ASTRO File Manager / Browser (Metago)

What app are you guys using to run the file mentioned in Step 6 ?
Could I be doing something wrong?

When I tried rooting my brand new LG Motion, It gave me a whole bunch of lines that I wasn't supposed to. After trying 20 times or so, I discovered that you have to do things EXACTLY the way the directions are written out. Don't do something ahead of time while you are waiting. When I finally did it one step at a time, it worked great. Then I had to do my sons phone.

First time it didn't work. The command prompt takes you back to where all you have to do is type 'root' again. I did and it worked perfectly.

I have 10 thumbs. If can do this ANYBODY can!
