    You know, in all honesty. It is rather odd the responses you get sometimes. I've been rather surprised with the "if you aren't going to help"-type responses you get from time to time. Especially when it seems like it isn't really a common response around here.

    Me too, I think people just find my posts too short and they don't really see answers in the short posts, but the answer is right there!! I'm a straight to the point kind of guy...I'm not going to restate the authors question, etc....I'm not writing an essay, jeez! Just doing short answers.

    I haven't been on this forum in a very long time so I wasn't too sure where to look anymore.



    and on another note

    the root is in reality for LG Optimus 4X HD so even though it may work with the Motion, I dont think I am going to be taking the chance. It's like I said originally, a legit motion root.

    Not may. It does work. Everyone here has rooted with it. I don't think anyone is gonna make a specific root for the motion. Everyone moved on to a custom recovery.

    Its legit. Let me tell you how:

    You had a Samsung Admire.
    It was rooted with a 1-click app.
    That app was originally made for a higher end phone, but worked on other phones.
    I could use the same root method from the Samsung Admire on my Optimus M.

    If you want someone to find a root method by using a Motion to find it's weak spots to root, well you WILL be waiting for an eternity. Good luck!

    Finally you get my point.........(sigh)

    Sorry for not directly answering your questions, but I had to define a legit root for you....

    yeah , I wasn't being too down to earth earlier. I guess I wanted to see a Motion root so bad that i wasn't giving the root for it a chance :p

    I am still going to hold off on the root for now because for some reason I don't feel too comfy doing it right now. Maybe in a bit.

    ^ Yep.

    The thing to keep in mind is that these are not unique systems. They are built by corporations. Corporations love to save money. If they can reuse things they will. The hardware is also similar across company lines. Which means that what works in one phone can quite easily work in another phone. Even across company lines.

    As a result, it is often easier/faster to look for an existing exploit that works, rather then invent a whole new one. As Sammyz said, someone isn't going to do all the work from scratch when it already exists in another form. It would end up being the same exact thing. And in a sense we already see this concept at work with the root method linked here. Since a person could have rewritten the existing method to look like it originated with the Motion and taken full credit for it, but it was faster and easier (and a bit more honest) to link to the existing method and simply tell the user what to change.

    Technically there is no legit method to root since rooting is itself unofficial .

    How exploit based rooting methods work .
    An Exploit opens up insecure shell on your device.(Also known as temporary shell root,temp root ,adb #...)

    You push the su binary and superuser.apk (or SuperSU/su ,)and probably busybox via the temp. insecure shell and make the root permanent .

    Exploits may vary/work device wide to manufacturer wide to Android wide (zergrush and ratc)

    /About non root cache cleaner
    I have heard some good stuff about ES Task Manager


    Also sammyz is an ork not troll .

    Lol, Ork - Troll...

    The Motion is prob the first anything Android device I won't root. IMHO you can disable enough of the bloatware without root. And really, The phone out of the box/stock is not all that bad.

    I think LG and many other makers out there are going to realize that if they give the user the option at full markets and disabling the bloatware for the most part then there won't be as much of an interest in, and I'll use the term "Hacking" by the common folk. Sure there will always be the select few that wants to totally "own" their device but for once I think LG got it right with this phone.

    So you're saying that a legit root would only be if OEM released it??? Ok....LG will never release a legit root, so an unofficial legit root has been found.....
