    So I've got a problem now.

    SuperSU came with the root, but I got Super User. It didn't work, installed SuperSU again. Now I tried the cleanup for new app feature on SuperSU and I can't get Super User or SuperSU to work at all?

    Thanks and this solved my issue. I have no idea why the video method didn't work. Any suggestions?

    I cannot take any credit at all for this. I have googled and then tried this method to see if we truly have root.

    The results. YES

    The instructions below is for a LG optimus 4X DH and it works flawlessly with the LG Motion 4G. I have myself tried this and I can confirm root access.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT>>>>>DO NOT FOLLOW LINE ONE, INSTALL YOUR OWN PHONE DRIVERS......DO NOT INSTALL THE DRIVERS IT TELLS YOU TO<<<<<

    I managed to fix my super user problems, but have now lost access to my Camera, seems I have to unbrick it now.

    Then re-root

    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,,,,, :)

    Thanks, but after reading some of the posts (broken signal, cam etc) I'd rather wait for another root, i don't feel that secure with this root.

    Actually if you root the phone and your camera doesn't work doin a factory reset there's no need to reroot as after the reset your still rooted. I found that interesting.....

    I thought the app would still be there but you lose root binary o_O

    I don't really know what's going on with some of these people lol, but I did the root the same night it was found and have zero issues.

    I've even bricked twice (testing something ;)) and rerooted each time after returning to stock and no issues those times either.

    Anyone have a list of safe bloatware to remove from the LG Motion? Y'know..without bricking it?
