Settings>backup and reset> factory data reset.
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?
Have you tried rerooting lol
Great find aaronmy - It is now a Stickyarty:
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<<<<<

has anybody found out what bloatware is the deletable yet or no?
Hmmmmmmmmm, do you ever feel crazy? I do..........
Disregard my post. lol
I managed to fix my super user problems, but have now lost access to my Camera, seems I have to unbrick it now.
Just factory reset and reroot....that fixes it as well.
Just got my phone going to root now
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,,,,,
What .zip do i download? Don't wanna screw this up. (By .zip i mean the one with the root file .bat)
sweet, just followed steps until command promnt and then i unziped o4xr.zip and then i open folder and double clicked root and then .batch ran and finished and now im rooted. i love it. I love this mini iphone killer.
Here is the direct link to the zip file containing the root files.
Got it first try! So simple!
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
I followed this video...clean..simple, no issues at all.
Note- YOU MUST get the LG drivers from their website.

Hope this helps, guys.
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?
