    Hello folks, this root method was found by jcase and I scripted the one click. And yes I have jcases blessing on posting it. ;)

    Instructions

    1. Download and unzip
    2. Connect your phone to your PC
    3. Make sure to have the LG USB drivers installed
    4. Make sure to have debugging enabled
    5. Make sure to have USB connectivity set to internet connection
    6. Run the script for your OS (.bat for Windows, .sh for Linux)
    7. Enjoy ;)

    No cwm. If you were to try you would find yourself with a brick on your hands. Locked bootloaders do that.

    Can't help you there. Sorry. If you were running Ubuntu I could tell you exactly what you need to do.

    Will there be a way to unroot the phone? (just asking, because I'm not sure how much longer I'll be keeping my phone).

    Thanks for the root option! I used it after realizing the leak was the same thing as this, only a bit more buggy once I was able to get root.
    I used RTB to freeze 24 apps and was able to restart the phone without a problem. I will see how my battery life is.

    Open the stuff folder and give all the shell scripts, as well as adb, execute permissions. Then the shell script will run fine.

    Just rooted using stated method and phone seems to have rebooted completely (sitting on lockscreen) but script command prompt on PC says "waiting for reboot". Am I fininshed? Do I just close the command prompt and start using my phone? Also across the top of my notification bar there is a line showing X/Y coordinates. what is that? First time rooting and don't want to brick. Help!!

    Uh oh, did I F**k up? I rebooted the phone myself. Now I have a weird bar across the top of my notification bar with coordinates on it and everytime i touch the screen, lines shoot out to the spot of touch from the side and top and stay there for a while. What should I do? 2012-10-26 14.54.23.png
