LG L40G rooting
Hi, I see you said you got your optimus extreme rooted. I have been trying to do the same forever, but get many permission denied notices, etc..
Mine is a Net10 phone and I know they use added security, but if there is a way to root this phone, I would love to know the proceedure! Thanks a million! Kevin

Thumbs up LG L40G (Optimus Extreme) rooting problem
I tried the method you meantioned and I got to where the program got stuck in running loop. I can get into my rom and see that security is on, and it asks for a pin to be able to disable Nand. This phone is very specific to Net10, hard to find in a search or on any list. I thank everyone who offers and has offered any advice on this. Thanks!

Re: Cwm for lg-l40g
Yes I have the net ten phone also..your gunna run the .bat file then it the phone should ask you for a recovery pin number you can put in any number you want just has to be 4 or 5 digits I used the last 4 of my net10 cell number then it should reboot the phone and it might give you an error on the program but phone should reboot to normal then try it again a couple times it should say every thing success full once you see that reboot the phone and run the program again if I says successful again then your good download root checker and super user from market n run the root checker and should be good like I said be for I have this phone also bought it from best buy its the net 10 lg extreme .. its gonna give you a hard time for a couple tries but it will work I think I'm probly the only one to have done it with this program so u should be the second

Re: Cwm for lg-l40g
When you run the program what option did you pick for your phone it should be the last option that dosnt have a phone model ...but this is how I did it exactly ... 1.download the file
2.hard reset the phone holding volume down home button n power once the lg logo appears at start up let go of the power button should factory reset ..
3.go to settings allow unknown sources USB debugging in able..
4.plug the phone to computer. Should have all the lg drivers installed ... of course ..when the phone prompts for USB connection type click on the one that says lg install or something like that should install some extra drivers if you haven't done that already.
5.then run the program as administrator if you aren't already then click the last option.
6.it should push all the files to phone should get fail for a certain amount of it .. but should prompt on your phone for a recovery pin put in any number you wish
6.it should reboot phone.. repeat the program again same options enter a recovery pin at promt and phone should reboot again repeat until it gives you all success full promps on your computer then repeat one more time ...

7. You should have root after the second success full attempt check install root checker n super user ..run root checker n ur all set..
8. Just a tip after you get root on your l40g you can factory reset it or hard reset it if you want and you won't loose root nor brick your device...

Thanks! Kinda hate to hard reset and lose all customization but guess thats the price you pay. Will definitely give this another try though. Did manage to backup programs and phonebook. Most important really. Thanks again!

Unbelievable, I am finally rooted. Thanks so much! Now the only thing I have left is to find a custom rom as well. I know the Lg L5 is very similar but I dont think I will trust it to be close enough to flash with. I guess we will all keep waiting or just be happy with what we've gotten so far
