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 adb.zip 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 "androidforums.com" 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): C:\adb>adb push su /sdcard/su * daemon not running. starting it now * * daemon started successfully * 543 KB/s (0 bytes in 86944.000s) adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid Code (Text): C:\adb>adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid 3428 KB/s (0 bytes in 658274.000s) adb shell Code (Text): C:\adb adb shell * daemon not running. starting it now * * daemon started successfully * $ Wait until the $ shows up before you continue. cd /sqlite_stmt_journals chmod 755 exploid ./exploid Code (Text): [*] Android local root exploid (C) The Android Exploid Crew [*] Modified by birdman for the DroidX [+] Using basedir=/sqlite_stmt_journals, path=/sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid [+] opening NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENT socket [+] sending add message ...
