Detailed instructions on how I rooted my LGAS740 Axis I used the rageaginstthecage, Superuser.apk, su, ADB method I used Win 7 x64 with the 32bit tool-kits so this is a windows 32 bit Rooting **** YOU SHOULD READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ROOTING **** First, we need to get the necessary files. You can get the rageaginstthecage, Superuser.apk, and su from here: Axis_root.zip - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com You will have to search the internet if you want the latest versions but these worked for me. And then you need the tools for installing those files to your LG Axis You need to get a Java Development Kit and the Android SDK tools. The versions that I used are here: Axis_root_1.zip - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com You can get the latest versions here JDK Java SE Downloads Android SDK Tools Android SDK | Android Developers Second, once we have the necessary files we need to install the Tool-kits on the computer. 1st install the Java Development Kit on the computer 2nd Install the Android Software Development Kit Tools With the Android SDK Tools here are the install instructions that I copied from here: What Is ADB And How To Install It With Android SDK I saved it as a PDF which you can get here Android_SDK_Tools_instructions.pdf - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com Third, we have to copy the rooting files to the phone. (Make sure that your USB cord is plugged into the phone and you have the drivers loaded for your phone per the Android SDK tools instructions. I did not copy these files to the SD card I copied them to the phone itself and just unmounted the SD Card for the procedure. There are a couple of times where you ave to go in and unmount the SDcdard) Unzip the Axis root.zip to a easy to get to directory such as c:\temp if the directory does not exist create it. You go to start(windows orb) > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt Now we need to go to the directory where we unzipped the Axis root.zip files. the command is: cd \temp Now to copy the files to the phone. the commands are: adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk adb push su /data/local/tmp/su Fourth, we need to get root access on the phone so we can install Superuser app and set up the root type in the command prompt window: abd shell Once in the adb shell $ prompt you type: chmod 775 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage /system/bin/sh After the adb connection is reset you can log back into the phone shell with the commands: adb kill-server adb start-server adb shell Fifth, now that we have root access which we can tell by having a # prompt we can copy the files over. In the adb shell # prompt you need to enter the following commands: mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system cat /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk > /system/app/Superuser.apk cat /data/local/tmp/su > /system/bin/su chmod 06755 /system/bin/su reboot The first command is remounting the system directory so that we can write to it and the second and third commands are the actual copying of the files while the fourth command changes permissions on the su file so we can access it the fifth command reboots the phone. When it starts up you should have the Superuser app installed. *** a couple of notes *** I made sure that the SD card was unmounted for the whole procedure. Once you have the files installed this whole procedure goes quick and you should be able to copy and paste the commands I have here into the command prompt window. If there are any questions I cannot say that i will answer them but if I remember to check back on the forum here I will try my best.
