    Hello all I just ordered the F6 today and had a question. What is the safest root method. I am saying good bye to my LG Motion 4G and in preparation for the F6 I am looking for any tips and hints. I am planning on rooting, doing the Fuse SD trick and killing bloat. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I just left my motion for the f6 as well, download this file https://www.dropbox.com/s/p9tmq62k09um4k4/root.zip , turn on development mode in the phone settings, connect phone to your pc, set the usb connection as media and simply run "install.bat" This is the safest and fastest way to gain root for the f6

    Well first off thanks! What bloat did you kill off and have you done the Fuse SD thing?

    I deleted most of the bloatware but i kept the apps "Play Movies & TV", "Play Newstand", and "Play books" because i do believe it can soft brick the phone kinda like the LG Motion.

    The Fuse sd card mod is very simple just follow the guide.
