    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 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 "" 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 (Text):
    1. C:\adb>adb push su /sdcard/su
    2.        * daemon not running. starting it now *  
    3.        * daemon started successfully *
    4.        543 KB/s (0 bytes in 86944.000s)
    adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
    Code (Text):
    1. C:\adb>adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
    2.        3428 KB/s (0 bytes in 658274.000s)
    adb shell
    Code (Text):
    1.  C:\adb adb shell
    2.        * daemon not running. starting it now *
    3.        * daemon started successfully *
    4.        $

    • Wait until the $ shows up before you continue.

    cd /sqlite_stmt_journals

    chmod 755 exploid

    Code (Text):
    1.             [*] Android local root exploid (C) The Android Exploid Crew
    2.             [*] Modified by birdman for the DroidX
    3.             [+] Using basedir=/sqlite_stmt_journals, path=/sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
    4.             [+] opening NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENT socket

    6.             [*] Try to invoke hotplug now, clicking at the wireless
    7.             [*] settings, plugin USB key etc.
    8.             [*] You succeeded if you find /system/bin/rootshell.
    9.             [*] GUI might hang/restart meanwhile so be patient.
    10.             $
    Code (Text):
    1. $ rootshell
    2.                 rootshell
    3.                 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.

    Code (Text):
    1. Password (echoed):secretlol
    2.             secretlol
    3.             #
    cat /sdcard/su > /system/bin/su

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

    rm /system/bin/rootshell

    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.
