How To Root! Optimus Q LGL55c

    Posting this for all thoughs out there with an LG Optimus Q LGL55c from straight talk!

    THIS ROOT WORKS!!!


    1) Download these Drivers and install them.
    2) Download LG_Esteem_Root.zip.
    3) Plug your phone into the USB on your pc
    4) Make sure your in "charge only" mode.
    5) Open the LG Esteem folder and click the run.bat file, will prompt hit any key to continue... let it do its thing, when its done your phone will reboot and you have root!!!

    SUGGESTED: Do a factory reset after preforming any root or flash!!!
    power off the phone then hold down volume down "home key" and power till you see the android system recovery. scroll(using volume keys) to wipe data/factory reset click "menu key" to select then scroll to yes and select it...

    WARNING: THIS WILL WIPE ALL YOUR DATA SO MAKE BACKUPS OF ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO YOU OR KISS IT GOODBYE! ^_^

    Enjoy!

    sootsme, rookie407's links don't work because there's an extra invisible http in them. This is my first post, so I can't include corrected links. Right click rookie407's links, click "Copy Link Location" and paste into Notepad. Remove the extra http, and copy and paste into your browser.

    I successfully rooted my LG Optimus Q, but still can't seem to install Flash. Perhaps I need to overclock??? Can anyone give me further info? I'd love to add Flash to the Dolphin browser on my phone!

    I have tried this some 6-7 times and it never goes past started daemon..?
    I wait and it just stays there....could this be because I have Lookout and it might be preventing any changes?
    Should I uninstall Lookout and try again? :confused:
    My phone is straight talk and I did take it to a shop that does Tmobile phones and others and they could not do it either. The guy would not tell me what they tried but said they tried a couple of different ways. :(
    Thanks.

    you have to enable USB debugging. go to Settings --> Applications --> Developement --> and place a check beside "USB Debugging".

    thank you so much now I have a mobile hotspot and lots of other things that i can do to my phone to make it truly my own. Once I located the file and used the right drivers it was a snap to root my phone.

    Thanks again

    PS make sure you have usb debugging on (As posted by NateLowery)and google the files since you cannot access it on the post When I get a chance, and the posts I'll find a place to host plus step by step instructions, crediting this thread and user of course. Also any mods and stuff that work.
