posting this for all thoughs out there with an LG Optimus Q LGL55c from straight talk! THIS ROOT WORKS!!! first download these Drivers and install them. Second Download LG_Esteem_Root.zip. plug your phone into the USB on your pc, make sure your in "charge only" mode. 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!
