Post [ROOT] Gingerbread 2.3.3 Root for the LG Shine Plus

I was curious as to what was going on behind the scenes when my phone was being rooted, so after some research and playing around I came up with my own method of Rooting the Shine Plus.

I made a batch file that you just have to run that achieves root. Instructions are as follows:

1. Download LGShinePlusC710hRoot.rar
2. Extract the Folder to your desktop or other convenient location
3. Set Your phone to Debugging mode and connect it to your PC via USB
4. Open the run.bat file and follow the prompts

This should get your phone rooted from a stock 2.3.3

For those who are curious as to what is going on when the batch file is running or wish to do it manually, I used the following commands:







If you go the manual route, be sure to copy Superuser.apk, busybox, and su into the directory you are running adb from!

Not sure how useful this will be to anyone since we already have the method that Karendar posted for us, but you never know! Hope someone finds this handy.

Also feel free to post any questions you have about this and I will try to answer them. This is my first time creating something like this and sharing it, so there is bound to be something that goes wrong! But I'll be glad to try and help if I can!

That pretty much sums up the manual rooting method used by the Gingerbreak rooting method. Question for you, in your rar file, did you update to the latest su binary and Superuser.apk? And which version of busybox are you using?

Superuser.apk is: superuser v3.1.3 (46)

su binary is: v3.1.1 (17)

So those are up to date as far as I know!

busybox is: BusyBox v1.20.2-Stericson

And yup probably the manual method for Gingerbreak, I think I found most of the commands in a manual rooting method thread for a motorola phone on the xda-developers site. I just pretty much added in echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf command which I think pertains to our LG model phone.

The reason I did this, like I said was to see what was going on with my phone and to make sure files were being cleaned up and stuff. I'm still pretty new to all this and I was having a hard time finding a manual method, everywhere I looked seemed to have one-click methods and such. Just thought I would share in case someone else would like to see the same

Also the work on making a custom ROM for this phone is very much appreciated! You're the one who has inspired me to get into all this stuff, and I thought I would start from the beginning and learn how to root my phone. My next step I think is to learn how to tweak a stock version of the ROM. Wish me luck!

Good to know. If you use dsixda's kitchen, modifying ROMs is pretty straightforward... The hardest part is bug squashing, kernel compilation modifications and smali editing... Not in that particular order. This phone is pretty good for an Android learner phone. The fact it's easy to put a recovery on it, that rooting is super easy and that it has generic enough hardware is a blessing to mess around with Android.

Here's my list of To Do's with this phone:

Fix auto brightness on V20B (Possibly kernel code)
Get an AOSP compatible kernel (Cyanogenmod 7 or 9)
Fix ringtone notification bug where phone doesn't always ring on call (Possible phone.apk and Contacts.apk issue, maybe kernel but I doubt it)

Considering I'm pretty busy lately, I have very little time to check these things out, but I'll get around to it eventually.
