Root LG P500 Fast

this tool was originally created for the lg p350, but some people tried it on their p500's and it worked
I post here so all of you can root your devices with only a few clicks

Quote:

Disclaimer
I am NOT responsible for any bricked devices, dead SD-cards, or any misfortunes that happen to you
This tool is fool proof, and if doesn't work, then YOU have broken it, YOUR phone was already bricked, or YOU Haven't followed the instructions properly
Do not Blame any developer for any problems. If it bricks devices, then it won't be published

You do not need to boot into fastboot. All instructions are given to you as you work

If your device can't be detected then it will go through checks, such as seeing if pc can see the device (windows 7 only)
It will also download and install the drivers for you silently if your computer doesn't have them, or if they are not working correctly

To use
  1. download the zip here
  2. extract to where ever you want
  3. run "antdking's p500 rooting tool.bat" (could be called "antdking's p500 rooting tool" depending on your system)
  4. follow the steps

If anyone wants to suggest features, post on here
If anyone wants to alter code, or add code (only if you know what you are doing), then send the suggestions to me, I will check them and add them

If people from other phones use this and it works, please post on here, or the original thread and I will post it into your forum as well

enjoy

download
sorry if this is in the wrong place as well

It might also root the optimus hub as well
in fact, most phones that can be rooted with superoneclick should be able to be rooted with this

Didn't worked for me
Hello.

This didn't worked for me.
I've installed the driver, run the script, it recognized my device, it rebooted the devices, debugging is enabled, and it stalls on "pushing rooting script".

Cheers!

Use "unlock root" (google it), just install the program and click "root" while the cellphone is connected to the PC.

Thumbs up Issue
Thanks for putting this together antdking
I came across an issue rooting my LG Optimus One with it, the batch script gave an error with something like "invalid option for su: --install"
Fixed it by adding single-quotes around the busybox command on line 409 like this:
adb -d wait-for-device shell "su -c '/system/bin/busybox --install -s /system/bbin'"

Ah yes, thank you. I ran into this issue on the p350 tool, I just never merged it onto the p500 tool.
