Default How to root, LG Optimus Q (LG LU2300)

This is how to root LG Optimus Q (LG LU2300) tested with android 1.6 and 2.1

1. Turn on USB debug mode and plug the phone into your computer.

2. Download adb.zip from here (MediaFire). and extract it to C:/ it should look like this when you are done. C:/adb/(8 Files)

#The password for the file is "androidforums.com" but without the quotation marks.

3. Run cmd

4. cd c:\adb

5. This is the command order. I found it best to type it into cmd instead of copy and pasting because sometime it can cause a syntax error.

adb push su /sdcard/su
Code:
C:\adb>adb push su /sdcard/su
       * daemon not running. starting it now *   
       * daemon started successfully *
       543 KB/s (0 bytes in 86944.000s)
adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
Code:
C:\adb>adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
       3428 KB/s (0 bytes in 658274.000s)
adb shell
Code:
 C:\adb adb shell
       * daemon not running. starting it now *
       * daemon started successfully *
       $
  • Wait until the $ shows up before you continue.

cd /sqlite_stmt_journals

chmod 755 exploid

./exploid
Code:
[*] Android local root exploid (C) The Android Exploid Crew[*] Modified by birdman for the DroidX
            [+] Using basedir=/sqlite_stmt_journals, path=/sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
            [+] opening NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENT socket
            [+] sending add message ...[*] Try to invoke hotplug now, clicking at the wireless[*] settings, plugin USB key etc.[*] You succeeded if you find /system/bin/rootshell.[*] GUI might hang/restart meanwhile so be patient.
            $
rootshell
Code:
$ rootshell
                rootshell
                Password (echoed):
  • If you see permission denied than right click the top of the window and click "close"
  • Than start Windows Task Manager and end "adb.exe"
  • Than run cmd again and cd c:/adb
  • Type "adb shell" and press enter than "rootshell"
  • If you get permission denied again than rinse and repeat.
  • After it runs fine continue following the instructions below.


secretlol
Code:
Password (echoed):secretlol
            secretlol
            #
cat /sdcard/su > /system/bin/su

chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

rm /system/bin/rootshell

exit

exit

6. Your Phone is now Rooted!

Does superone click work to root this phone, and what about the wifi hotspot. I'm looking to upgrade from my Optimus v to this phone, but I don't want to have to give up the wifi hotspot that my Optimus v phone has. I need to be able to use my lepan tablet when I'm away from home, so the hospot works well for what I need. Will I loose that if I upgrade. Can't find anything anywhere that talks abut whether the optimus q has it or is able to have it after rooting.

Thanks mtinervin.
