    How to root your LG Spirit 4G​

    Ok so here is a nice little script that will root your device, youll need to follow a few simple steps :)

    Ensure you have the latest drivers for the spirit
    Enable usb debugging in developer options
    Set usb connection to charge only
    Download Here
    Extract the zip
    Run the batch script named run.bat (it may be just run)

    All credit goes to bliss for this root, be sure to thank him and show him you appreciate his work

    Like root? You can donate to bliss here:

    not even recovery? I don't see how they can legally do that. US government says root and all is legal.

    umm they want people to buy their phones... and the government says so lol

    If I were a Cellphone manufacture. not only would I allow it, I'd even offer the root exploit and recovery, maybe even have ROM's and tweaks people could buy for 99cents

    One thing about this idea that I read in the past was people messing up their phones and bringing too many problems to the manufacturers, So they decided to lock their phones to stop all the problems.
