I tried this on my LG P769 and during the rooting process, it said "permission denied: Are you root?." This is my first root and I am completely lost on what I should do. I went through the instructions thoroughly and followed them and it did not root. If I try to root now, it gets stuck on "If all is successful, I will tell you, if not this shell will run forever." Anyone know what I can do?

Edit: My firmware is 10g, could that be causing the problem?

Also is it better to unlock first then root or root and then unlock?

Default Saving apps to Sd card

My main reason for rooting this phone was to save big games or apps to sd card. Does anyone have a solution on how to do this safely? Thanks for the help!

I used to use link2sd. it worked great while I was rooted. But updated to 10g and lost root, and as far as I'm reading it's not looking like we'll be able to flash or root the p76910g anytime soon

Enable USB debugging, unistall or disable lookout, Download the attached RunMe_L9.txt but choose "save as" and change the extension to .bat Make sure your phone is on USB LG mode and the .bat extension you just created should be located in a file you create along with the three files from the link provided in the original post. double click the bat extension that says L9 and it will begin. Choose "restore my data" when prompted and press any key after the restore has finished.When it asks 1 or 2- choose 1. It will root by itself and reboot. Let us know if you have any other questions.

I am considering buying this phone soon, but will have it flashed to MetroPCS. If I were to root it and eventually install a custom rom, would a rom from this forum for the T-Mobile version work on my phone or will it erase the flashed portion?

I don't know the answer to your question but something you might want to consider is that if you order a new phone it will most likely come with the 10g software which can't yet be rooted. My Tmobile did anyway.

For the 10g, if someone could make a video for idiots like me, that would be awesome.

Go to the thread and read it. As far as I remember it is supposed to work for all models and I thinnk the OP had did it with a phone that was P765. As far as I can see it shouldn't harm your phone either it works or not. But I am not responsible if it does. Go to the thread and read it and ask questions if you need to. The OP is a good helpful guy that will answer your questions.

So I have done everything that the very first post tells me to do and it restarts and says I have root access in the cmd box. I open rootchecker and it is telling me that I don't have root access. I just bought this phone 3 days ago and really want to get rid of all this bloatware crap. I don't understand what is going on. MY phone restarts after the restore and everything How can I tell if i have the wrong version? Thanks

I get up to the point where it says restore, but it wants me to enter my device encryption password, which I don't know where to find.

there isn't one. anyway, with the newer firmwares, this method is invalid. there is a new method over on xda that works with all firmwares.

Only false for 10g. Pay attention, this root method is for up to 10E only. Search the web for your 10g firmware root fix.

I have the same goals, but have a different problem. Running on Windows 7 here, and I can get it almost to the end, but I get the "are you root?" error. Help!

Just to let you know you can get tether free without root. I have root but ended up using a pdanet w/foxfi key torrent I found on http://kat.ph/pdanet-for-android-crack-t5643751.html. This app works great and my speeds run very high. You can install this on unrooted phones for free wifi and usb tethering. Hope you are knowledgeable about downloading a torrent or maybe just buy the app key. If you do the torrent way you just copy the files to your phone and install the apk files with the apk installer found in the playstore. Good luck!

I did some scouring online to see if anyone else had this issue and I found nothing. I did find that it's people with other phones were having similar issues, though, and it is/was because they didn't have a system/custom recovery. I don't even know how to access the recovery (boot into it), nor do I know how to obtain the update again.

I'm currently running v10e, and this version doesn't allow me to tether my 4G (meaning I have no internet access on my laptop, and everything I have to do online has to be done from my phone--including homework [which sucks]). The v10g update resolves this issue, but I can't access it!

Does anyone know what I should do?

I'm having the same issue with both my wife's and my phones. FoxFi has solved the WiFi tethering issue, but we both still get prompted to install to 10g update via OTA. I installed the VooDoo OTA Rootkeeper app and made the backup. I tried to update to 10g again and it once again failed as described in the above post. Does anyone know how to either get the 10g update to succeed or to stop being prompted for it?

Okay, so this is seriously starting to piss me off.

I used this method and was successfully able to root my phone. Weeks later, my phone randomly stops. Like, it froze. I hard reset the phone, and after it rebooted, it gives me a message that says I HAVE to restore me phone. Sadly, I did it. I later try to root my phone again, still using this method, but I'm not able to. I'm stopped when the prompt asks me to click restore on my phone, but when I do, a box appears saying "Restore starting...", then another saying "Restore ended" shows up, and the phone seems untouched by my computer. The script runs until this: "Please look at your device and click RESTORE! If all is successful I will tell you, if not this shell will run forever. Running..."

Any help?
