    echo ------------------------------------[/HIGH] I figured it was time to re-write the desc. Ok, here's the deal. This utility can accomplish many things for you, it can root, install a custom recovery, a stock recovery, or change the boot mode of your phone. It also does so with little-to-no interaction, which is why I made it, so that noobs could have their phone rooted and have
    a recovery. Also, so that when I revert to stock, I can be lazy and have this do it for me. Anyways, I was digressing. All of the source is posted on the website, along with links too the builds. You can find that all in the third post. So, to sum this post up, it can do root, custom recovery, stock recovery, adb shell, boot modes, and lastly ADB Terminal (Prompt) Thanks for using this.

    [BUILD V11.0:] https://sourceforge.net/projects/lgvortexutility/


    [V11 1:34PM 16/07/2014] Updater. PSNUETER bug fixed.
    ​[V10 1:42PM 25/07/2013] Fixed Updater, switched to XML-based updater by me. Uhhh, fixed bug-logger. Updated CL. Other fixes.

    [V6.5 12:31 11/14/2012] Small Bug Fixes, added in MD5CHECK compenents. Fixed a bit of issues with adb network and with the img dl. Added in ROMS menu, that includes forums links, etc.

    [V6.0 13:22 10/14/2012] ALOT of Bug fixes, added stock recovery, it no longer includes 'stockrecovery.img' instead 'wget's it from my dropbox. Also, I shortened, and explained more of the code in the .bat. Yeah, that's really all....

    [V5.5- 19:17 *10/5/2012] Fixed all-in-one package. (Root + Recovery). Improved startup screen, improved Setup code. Improved Root and Recovery interface to make it look less 'Clumped'.

    [V4.5- 20:16 10/1/2012] Been coding for 5 hours straight... What i achieved was a fixed root, and the recovery actually installs! Oh goody! I can verify these work, and also I added the LG adb driver as part of "setup".

    [V4.0- 12:23 10/1/2012] RECOVERY WORKS! I finally got myself a USB cord and it worked! :D In other news, I fixed some bugs, and some leftover "Cd %userprofile%/adb " references which had most likely cause root not to work for people who had used 3.0.

    [V3.5- 12:02 9/24/2012] Root was tidyed up, added boot modes. Recovery code is nearing final (It's
    'rem'ed so go into the bat and unrem it to use it.) Also, Simplified main code. (StandAlone)

    [V3.0- 14:13 9/20/2012] Root Works for sure. Recovery is BETA, and that's all there is too it.

    [13:10 9/20/2012] Root works, I unrooted with Superuser temp unroot, and then used RATC exploit, now is telling me its rooted ;). Recovery, is making HUGE progress, expect a beta of this to be released today.

    [01:27 9/20/2012] Recovery installs; requires a little User Interaction. (Pushs file twice, then flashes it) Root is working, with RATC, but untill i get an unrooted stock, I can't test too see if it roots.



    - Ubuntu 12.04LTS/Linux Mint -

    [NOTE: This one currently is only able to do recovery, by using ADB over network.]

    [V3.1 12:14:36 05/13/2013] - ANSI, Mod Loader, lots of stuff.

    [V3.0 ~5:30 12/16/2012] - See for yourself ;)

    [V2.5 11:10- 12/5/2012 - Still only recovery, fixed issues with it, fixed adb installer, fixed life.....

    [V1.5 16:02- 10/23/2012 - Only Recovery, Root is in the making. Uses Adb Connect. Don't worry about editing the script, it uses your input to connect to your device

    [V1.0 09/14/2012] - Code ported, now to setup ADB dependencies.

    [V0.5 09/14/2012] - Setup for ADB, now to port code.

    Download: [V3.1] https://sourceforge.net/projects/lgvortexutility/

    Turns out RATC won't work by it self on the device, it requires a bypass to mouting system. So, bypass get, Psneuter is now intergreated with RATC.

    EDIT: No, it doesn't -.- I just need to actually correctly use RATC.

    Updates may be a bit slower now that I have basically got it working.... Although, I may add an option to download ROMs via this, and have it push them to /sdcard/roms so, enjoy root!

    Build 7.5 contains a Updater UI! It'll inform you whenever there is a new update! It also will allow you too download it! This is a major breakthrough for my scripts, as I've been working on this for a LONG time.

    Anyways, enjoy the new update that addresses many issues too.

    Alright, I'll debug this issue and see what I can do to fix it or if it's a (potential) issue with your cell phone.

    I got the same errors as erikjason. Any word on what if any fix there was?


  24. Jared631

    Jared631 Well-Known Member

    There is a fix, just not migrated upstream as of currently.

    I had an issue where my AntiVirus had deleted psneuder or either zergrush's root binary, just use the other exploit instead until I get around to fixing it.

    v11 is live, updater version is set. Downloading the latest version from the server doesn't work for any client though. PSNUETER was added back, but can't confirm still works.
