    You're getting "access denied" because you're missing the spaces in the command. Just copy/paste the commands from the first post. Much easier than typing them yourself. Just postpone till you have your internet back up.

    Busybox is not a folder. It's a binary file that will be in the zip and you will see it after extracting the zip.

    I never got the ui_print at the end. I pulled battery and tried again. Same thing, no ui_print it just asks for another command. I typed LEAVE and it accepted the command so the prompt wasn't hanging. Rebooted to root! So it definitely works. Also used push file and send command to push twrp with dd.

    I flashed a bad modem and this exploit allowed me to recover from a soft brick. Awesome tool to have.

    T-Mobile.
    It's weird because the first time I flashed a kdz then rooted and any other time I've used send_command ui_print has always worked.
    The send file exploit, while idk how it works, is badass. Keeps you from having to put files on sdcard to push to the system in an emergency

    He used the send_command that's in your zip to flash the working modem.

    Hello,
    I don't post much... I just wanted to know how to get a recovery installed because i can not get in to recovery after your method of rooting..i didn't see a warning to back up stock recovery in there first post.. Is there a way to get into stock recovery if i backed it up after installing Flashify? I see the stock recovery in flashify but I've used my 3 chances already today

    i just got into it, so you powered on the device by pressing and holding Power + Vol down then after the LG in a circle shows up did you let go then repress and hold the same buttons? cause that's how it's supposed to be done...i've tried advance rebooting with apps from the play store but they don't seem to work

    @Rashad Oglesby you need to find your port that has diag1 on the end when your phone is in download mode. Run the ports.bat file and find it, mine was COM4 and COM11 was just an example for the guide

    @Kolma528 actually yes it will, if you do this method you will get cerificate error 18 or something along those lines and then you wanna have the untouched update for your phone(ex. if your on boost like me there is a copy floating around the site somewhere) on your external sd card, boot into recovery by having your phone completly off and holding the volume down and power button at the same time. then select update from sdcard from within recovery. it should flash fine but it will take a few minutes, after that select reboot to system, and it will boot up fine. you wont have root but there is a way to get that but i would wait because boost has released another update to fix the stage fright scare, and it you root you wont be able to update. Just root after you take the stage fright update I know this works for a fact as i did it for my wifes phone and mine. Best of luck

    Did you choose the correct com port and if you did. Did you run the LS TMP (supposed to be lower case) command twice?
