Main differences in my script is that you don't need to ever disconnect your phone.

1. Unzip the zip file
2. Make sure USB Debugging is on, and your are in Charge only Mode
3. Run the CurrentRoot.bat, wait for the prompt
4. Change to MTP mode.
5. Wait for your computer to ask how to view files.
6. Press enter in the CMD prompt to continue.
7. Done.

This is a fully working method for the most current US/Canadian releases, and Jelly Bean releases. BTW, the current release does not install busybox correctly, includes SuperuserPro.apk (which I'm sure wasn't purchased by everyone downloading this). Also I have updated it to the latest busybox, su binary's, and Superuser.apk available.


I can't thank you enough.... I got my Optimus G in Dec. and I immediately found root method and was completely content with my new phone. Then came the dreaded OTA update that I knew would remove root. I avoided the update with determination. I shouldn't have let my goofy sister touch my phone... After our got it back from her I realized I wasn't receiving the update reminders. I panicked, checked root, root was lost! I began searching everywhere only to find that there was no root for zv9....For weeks it was the same. Then yesterday I found your method, fired up my laptop and within 5 minutes my LGOG ZV9 on Sprint was rooted again! Thanks again. I can't tell you how much I rely on my free wifi tether.

I re-rooted my LGOG after the OTA update to ZV9 robbed me of my original root. It only took about five minutes and worked flawlessly. Well tonight I tried to root my girlfriends phone (also a LGOG running ZV9 on the Sprint network) and although it ran through the process just as mine did, as well as stated root was successful, when I run root check to confirm it comes back negative. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas? Thanks

Every time I run CurrentRoot.bat I receive the error " 'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file" after every step.

Im on Telus running E97310g

Afraid LG did something, cant get it to root.
I have an E975 with 4.1.2, software version E97510a-525-05.

I won it in LGs test pilot contest so not sure if its something they did to this or if they plugged the hole completely for the future also.
The guy I spoke to said something about them being flashed as we spoke, and it looked like the phone could have been taken from the box.

Should I wait and hope they send a update after the contest is over or can I use a KDZ and if so, what KDZ can I use to maintain same radio bands?

EDIT: Tried the LG sMobile Support tool and it said it found an update. So now its downloading that *holds thumbs*

EDIT2: Updated to E97510B and still no go, guess they did something to the euro version...

Unhappy cant root
hi, i tried the CurrentRoot.bat and followed the instructions but couldn't root. it said phone now rooted and restarted the phone but there was no superuser after that

i saved a screenshot of it incase anyone can figure out whats wrong. just got the phone yesterday.... Best phone i've ever used.(from starhub singapore if it helps)

i think its because of the uid and gid not being zero. any ideas??

No root for my E750 v10D. Instead since my root atempt can't get iGO Primo 2.0 to work again. The phone closes apk with no error message. I have been trying diferent versions, factory reset still no luck.
How can I reflash firmware again since LG support tool says I have the latest version?
L.E. Done with the reflash and iGO primo works again...
