    hey thanks for the guide.

    In the OP, you state that there is a method for 5.0.2. Could you give me a link to that method? I dont want to update to 5.1

    I'm trying this but I can't push the files to the tmp directory.

    Push_File.exe \\.\COM5 lg_root.sh /sdcard/lg_root.sh
    Author : blog.lvu.kr
    File : lg_root.sh
    Path : /sdcard/lg_root.sh

    UNLK : FAIL
    OPEN : FAIL
    TOT FileSize : 9319

    SendStart
    WRTE : FAIL9319byte sent

    This is what I get. I'm also having the issue where while in Download Mode, my device manager tells me that the MTP cannot start.

    yes, the port is the right one. And it is kinda communicating because when I type LEAVE once in Send_command.exe the phone restarts.

    When I get to the "ls tmp" part, I get nothing. When I type just "ls" I get a root of the memory that has a bunch of folders but there is no tmp to be found. That why I tried "sdcard" with the same result.

    here is the full log from a oneclick root script. I also did it manually, step by step and it always hangs there.

    If you don't see the SuperSu installer script runs within about a minute,
    then the root failed.

    Did you seriously have to quote two huge posts just to ask if this works on Windows 8?? As long as your PC recognizes your phone and you have the right drivers installed it will work.

    Nevermind, googled it. Thanks, felt naked without root.
    Now just have to wait for recovery and custom roms.

    I don't suppose you have a back up of the stock recovery you'd be willing to share? Messed mine up sadly, hadn't found one yet.

    I didn't know how to backup. I have root now. Will a backup of this help you out? If yes then just tell me how to do the backup and Ill get you the backup.

    Unless I'm mistaken, you should just be able to install Flashify. Once inside the app, you will see options to make a backup of your Kernel and Recovery. Now, I'm hoping, all that need be done, if you to make that backup, then upload it someplace. Of course once you have it uploaded, your be able to share at will. Those of you with more experience, if this is wrong, please correct me. Until then, I think that's all you'd have to do :) and if it works, and you are able and willing to share that, gah, you'd be my hero, m8.
