    After rooting, my phone no longer sends or received MMS picture messages. Any ideas, guys? Anyone seem this issue before?
    I remember this happening on my Samsung Admire months after rooting and I ended up trading it in, paying like $10 bucks and getting a new one. After rooting that one, MMS was fine.
    Did I just muck up my phone? Do I have to trade it in (under warranty)? -P

    Maybe your signal is bad in your area? Check your prl version in phone settings I think latest is 3031

    Don't bother with the command prompt, it doesn't work. Just open the folder in Windows and double-click root.bat, it will run from there.

    It shouldn't take that long. Make sure you have followed all the instructions correctly.

    thx to everybody who helpd with this yall are the poop. :D

    the only issue i had with it was when just running the batch file it was unsuccessful at copying all the required files to the phone. so i used the cmd prompt method i think ppl have issues with the cmd meth because for me atleast when i extracted the zip to c:\ it has a o4xr sub folder in it. so if u ran it as cd it wouldnt have access to the required files cause they would be in c:\ox4r\ox4r instead of just c:\ox4r so after cut/pasting out of the sub folder to the main folder there were no real issues except it still couldnt copy all the files i had to run root and reboot 2-3 times inorder to get all the files including su. with all that said it works perfect im greatful for everybodys effort they put into this thanks. :)

    Ok I abandoned my first try and heres what I did second time around. Did a factory reset started from scratch. Googled lg motion driver and downloaded the one at the top. Did all the steps and skipped the command part and just went ahead and clicked on root batch and now it just sits there, what could be wrong?

    Ah stupid me I did miss that, it does explain why the cmd doesn't work. So it would work if you either move the folder to C: or navigate down the extra layer with the cmd prompt.

    Did you enable USB debugging, and is the phone in "charge only" mode?

    You don't have communication with the phone. If you run the file without the phone connected, you'll get exactly what you're getting now.
    Are you getting the notification on the phone that USB is connected, and does your PC respond when it's plugged in?
    Maybe try a different USB port, install the driver again if necessary.

    Not quite one click root... but pretty darn easy just the same.

    ROOTED!~

    It works. I've got AdFree running, can access everything with FileManager. Can run tether with Barnacle (yes, yes, yes!) and can run VNC with PocketCloud.

    Life is good this afternoon... hope it stays that way.

    Try it with this driver: Finally got my phone rooted. Took quite a while until I found the current lg usb drivers. Most of the links posted here are not good. I got mine here: https://www.box.com/s/5c8758354a564c191524

    Thanks to Navimaster for the link. Couldn't have done without you.

    Good luck.

    Ok sorry if this is a dumb question but how do I do that? In that thread there is no direct link for the drivers. Do I just copy and paste into google or what lol

    alright so I just wanted to get this straight, getting recovery for this device is going to be a little bit harder is in it because Lg put a bunch off walls up right? I have it routed for right now which is fantastic it makes a run phenomenal, so I'm not going to complain I was just wondering just trying to get things sorted out.

    Correct-LG made it a bit more of a challenge for recovery for it. At least there is an unbrick/return to stock option right now:thumbup:
