    [​IMG] I am in no way responsible for what you do to your phone. Use at your own risk!

    The zip contain scripts for windows, linux, and OSX (Intel Based), just download to your pc, unzip, and run the appropriate one for your OS. Both zips are All In One, meaning it will root and install CWM in one step. Also options to unroot, unroot n install stock recovery.


    • Download zip to your computer
    • Unzip zip
    • Connect phone to computer via USB cable
    • turn on and put into Internet connection mode
    • Make sure debugging is enabled in settings > applications > development.
    • run the install script for your OS (.bat = windows, .sh = linux, mac)
    Note: Please let me know if they are issues with the scripts or if the phone setting are different. ;)

    The goods!

    Can I use this even though I've already rooted my phone with OneClickRoot and used your CWM from yesterday?

    Yes should be able too, but its not been tested. Believe its the same root exploit soc uses for this phone.

    Not to be disrespectful, even to a playful god...

    I just wanted you to know that it did not work for me on my Boost Mobile LG-LG855. I did all of the usb drivers, but i still got hung at the daemons starting screen...

    That's when I did the http://androidforums.com/marquee-all-things-root/497775-lg-marquee-root-guide.html

    and then...

    http://androidforums.com/marquee-all-things-root/509756-working-cwm-recovery-v5-0-2-8-a.html

    Both finished and rebooted the phone. I got root and cwm, and was able to make backups.

    But the all in one did not work.

    I appreciate your help on this phone, you being a God and all, I just wanted to let you know...

    And thanks! This is not meant to be snarky; i just wanted to let you know.

    lol I left su, superuser, n busybox out, other than that it should work, same script as the other just installing the pre-mentioned files.

    Edit: I added su, superuser.apk, and busybox to the zip.

    I keep getting this error message when I try to root the cell

    The system cannot find the path specified.

    - I already install the LG usb drivers
    - I also select the cell to be on USB debugging

    I dont know what I am missing or doing wrong

    PD. Using an LG Marquee for boostmobile

    might need to also select internet connection or charge only from the notification drop down after connecting usb.

    I wanted to add that the drivers I used for both my Root and CWM were the ones munguse linked to above me (v3.2.1.2)
    How to Root Sprint LG Marquee - LG Cell Phones Blog

    I couldn't get the v1.0 drivers to work, so you may want to give the 3.2.1.2 drivers an install, then try adb and see if the phone is recognized.

    But

    IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE UR PHONE WHEN USB CONNECTED THEN FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
    1ST- ON UR COMPUTER OPEN THE DEVICES AND PRINTER TAB, HIGHLIGHT ANDROID NET DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK, CLICK ON PROPERTIES,
    2ND- SELECT THE HARDWARE TAB, THEN HIGHLIGHT (THE 1ST OPTION IN SELECTION PANE BY SINGLE CLICKING THE: 'ANDROID SOONER SINGLE ADB INTERFACE' THEN DBL CLICK ON PREFERENCES BUTTON BELOW....
    3RD- IN NEXT WINDOW SELECT THE SETTINGS BUTTON AND SELECT ONE OF THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS: UNINSTALL OR UPDATE (BEST=UNINSTALL)

    THATS IT! CUZ THE NEXT TIME YOU HOOK PHONE TO COMPUTER VIA USB (CABLE THAT CAME WITH THE PHONE) THE WHOLE DRIVERS PACKAGE WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE INSTALLED.

    **** THE MARQUEE ONLY CONNECTS TO YOUR PC VIA THE ORIGINAL USB CABLE!!!!****

    SUPERONECLICKROOT AND THE SEPERATE CWM FILE FROM THE LINK AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE WORKS THE BEST FOR BOTH THE BOOST/SPRINT PHONES. ROOT FIRST WITH SUPER1CLICKROOT*TIP- KEEP USB DEBUGGING DISABLED UNTIL AFTER THE FIRST TWO LINES APPEAR ON THE INTERFACE, THEN CHECKMARK THE USB DEBUGGING OPTION ON PHONE AND THE ROOT WILL FINISH, OTHERWISE IT WILL BE STUCK FOR ETERNITY*

    (not trying to diss the man who put this awsome prog together, cuz i couldnt do what he does, but figured i'd relieve some of the frusteration for yall that r bout 2 do try it out)... actually the "AOI"works sometimes but i believe since it doesnt keep the usb debugging off until the first two lines appear after clicking root in
    sup-1-clk-root... DONATE TO THE GOD CUZ HE WOORKS MAD HARD ON THIS SH!T FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL..

    So I've previously rooted a LG Optimus by hand moving files over and executing via the adb shell.

    But I can't get this AIO to work. Can someone please let me know what I'm doing wrong?

    I have USB Debugging on, and when it says USB connected I have it set to "Charge only" (as opposed to mass storage).

    I have ADB up and running, so when I type in "ADB devices" in the terminal it responds with the device attached.

    When I try to run the script in Terminal (not Console, which I can't find a run command and appears to be an editing program), I get a request for a password. When I type the password, I get this:

    Files/adb: Files/adb: cannot execute binary file
    Looking for device
    /Users/Mac/Desktop/LGMarquee_AIO/RootRecoveryAIO.sh: line 422: Files/adb: cannot execute binary file
    ....
    The device cannot be found.
    Plug or replug the USB cable. Press any key to continue.

    It obviously is a problem with pointing the script to the right location for my device. But I don't know exactly what the script wants in this regard.

    Help??

    for root, cwm, or both?

    for root, try this: http://vulnfactory.org/public/LG_Esteem_Root_v2_Linux_OSX.zip

    for cwm try this:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell
    2. su
    3. adb push Files/cwmrecovery.img /data/local/tmp/cwmrecovery.img
    4. dd if=/data/local/tmp/cwmrecovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 bs=4096
    (make sure you are in the AIO directory)

    First, thanks for the quick reply and help. My question was for the AIO script -- so in answer to your question -- both. Is there a way to run it on Mac (Intel) that I am missing?

    For the root zip you linked, I downloaded it -- but what next?

    For the cwm -- I can follow that code once I get root.

    Thanks!

    Well, folks seem to be busy so I took a stab at this myself. Basically, I opened the RootRecoveryAIO.sh file in a good text editor (Fraise for Macs), and took a look under the hood.

    Stripping away the mini-GUI stuff for users, the basic goods for root start at "Pushing Zergrush". To be explicit for future Mac users, though, here is a step by step:


    1. I entered Terminal
    2. I cd'd to the file where the AIO was located (so that I could correctly follow the paths in the text). For me, that was done by typing: "cd ~/Desktop/LGMarquee_AIO".
    3. I then confirmed that my device was connected by typing "adb kill-server" and "adb start_server". I got back "daemon started successfully" so I was good to go.
    4. Then, I simply cut and paste (from the editor to the terminal window) the relevant commands after "Pushing Zergrush." There are three of them before you get root on the adb. Because I was running this directly, rather than via a script, I only had to type the part starting with adb. So, the first line was "adb push Files/zergrush /data/local/tmp/zergrush"
    5. Then the next two lines, each in sequence.
    6. I knew I had root (although you don't see the # symbol like you would if you were actually in an adb shell, rather than just using a "remote" adb shell) because I could then enter the commands for "Removing Trash and Installing Root files"
    7. I did the first two, which remount /dev/block files. That worked.

    Then I totally wussed out -- because the next line was "rm /system/bin/su". That made me a little worried -- because I really don't know if this code works, given that the script did not -- at least on a Mac.

    I am pretty sure that I could have just continued cutting and pasting on through the rest of the commands in the "Root" section of the .sh file. But I wanted some confirmation that folks have actually used these commands and they worked. . . . so . . . . has anyone??


    If I get a green light, I will move through the commands and post the whole thing for Mac users.

    when i ran it with that line it just said file not found and skips the next 5 or 6 lines that are similar.

    Ok. So I got it to root and to install CWMrecovery. I just backed up.

    Basically, the script's line commands work, I just couldn't use the script itself.

    I can post the details if anyone wants, but its basically just continuing off where my post above stopped from *****dom.

    So, two things:

    1) Playful God's code does work, but for me I had to "find & replace" the following: "Files/$" with (nothing -- i.e, just delete Files/$ in each line).

    2) There is also a Mac specific app (i.e., one touch rooting) that does this and more. I don't want to hijack Playful God's thread, so I will post a new one on this topic.

    Many thanks Playful God!
