Default [GUIDE] Howto Root LG Motion 4G

DO NOT USE ROM MANAGER OR ANY OTHER APPS TO FLASH ROMS OR RECOVERIES IT WILL HARD BRICK YOUR PHONE AND IT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE FIXED

Root

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING YOU DO (bricks, bugs) TO YOUR PHONE IT IS CONFIRMED THIS METHOD WORKS AND MOST HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS OF COURSE FOR SOME THERE WERE BUGS (they were eventually fixed) BUT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY AND IF THEY ARE HARD THERE'S THE LINK BELOW WHERE YOU CAN FOLLOW THEM EASILY THERE. THIS HAS BEEN TESTED AND IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS PLEASE DO NOT BE INPOLITE PLEASE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE YOU CAN FIX IT THROUGH sammyz UNBRICK GUIDE AT THE BOTTUM

[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

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *

Omg! I got to get this phone, it has a root and unroot method already.

Unroot method I'm talking about is my flashing stock firmware guide ^_^

Edit: now that root has been found, DONT USE ROM MANAGER!!!!! There is no custom recovery for this phone yet!!

well for each device its different.

adb shell ls -l /dev/block > blocks.txt

and then pastebin that txt file and thatw ill show the partitions. from there we need to use dd to copy em so use busybox installer from teh market and then begin as follows

adb shell "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p1"
adb shell "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p2"
adb shell "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p3"
and so on and so forth...

the optimus m+ had recovery on mmcblk0p13 so grabbing blocks mmcblk0p1 through mmcblk0p16 is prolly a safe bet

when youve pulled them list off teh sizes for em and we can prolly figure out which ones are which

o.o y would you put that in your system/apps

I highly recommend do not do nothing else to your device besides removing bloatware until we have an official recovery.

- First of all make sure you got the motions drivers all installed and the phone is in usb debugging.
- Download these.
*the rooting folder (o4xr)- http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1297942&d=1346603576
*the "SystemBackupTest.apk" - http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1245330&d=1344276357

- Put the apk "SystemBackupTest" in your sd card and install it.
- Open the apk called "SystemBackupTest" it should show a screen with "Hello world" then restart your phone.
- Plug your phone to your pc and make sure its in "charge only" mode.
- Open the "o4xr" folder and double click the file named root.
- It might fail, just run again after phone reboots.
*as long as it pushed three files to your phone you should be good.
- Your phone is rooted with SuperSu.

Any questions just pm, HereticSins.

Guys, it's just a regular batch script, like for the connect. You don't have to type anything in cmd prompt. Just extract the ox4r zip to your desktop, open the folder and double click the root script labeled... You guessed it, root.
