Hi.

I want to root my Optimus G running on 4.1.2. I tried searching the forum, which ultimately took me to a Chinese forum. Unfortunately Google Translate was unable to help me. Can some one please help me root the phone??

try this, if you scroll down a bit there is an easier script than OP.

Report back if it works, my Swedish e975 comes on Monday.

I can confirm that 10B EU is still unrootable. I've been trying for a few days.

It works on HongKong V10a and Singapore (StarHub)V10d.
But these two firmwares both have MTP copy problem(interrupt when copying large number of files from Phone to Windows Desktop).
This problem really drives mad.

For rooting the E97510B you must use the ZV9-ZVB-Root.zip, can find it in the LG optimis G forum "Root LG Optimus G E975 [GUIDE]",
but you must chance/edit the CurrentRoot.bat file

Copy this line
adb shell "echo -en \\x0d > /sdcard/G_security"
And overwrite this line.
adb shell touch /sdcard/G_security
in the batch file CurrentRoot.bat
