Smile Root LG Nitro HD Att ICS (Works like a Charm)

Hi Guys,

This is my 1st thread to guide you to correct resource rather as many of us have struggled to root the AtT ICS version ROMs.

I was on leaked iCS v18f installed immediately when available, struggled hard to root it.. Tsparky, Doomlord, SuperOneClick, manual root,. No go for more than a couple of months.. Found the Bin4ry root method:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

Worked in 1st attempt.
Thought it should work on V20c as well,, upgraded to v20c.. rooted in 1st attempt again (no surprise there)
UI is smooth as silk and response is awesome..


Right now Rooted, no-frills CPU, ADW Launcher Ex and Network Selection Tweak by -ReaL-. (as the *#*#4636#*#* code to choose network selection is removed on V20c) THANKS A LOT..
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1823399

My Phone is a like a ripe cherry for the 1st time and I am jus loving it...

Thanks to all the mods and developers..

NOTE: Confirmed working on both ICS versions V18f and v20C, single attempts, though doesnt work on Gingerbread as explained in the linked post.

Lightbulb Device detection

Make sure USB Debugging under "Development section" and Unknown Sources under "Security" are selected.

Launch the "command prompt" as Administrator. Make sure it lists your mobile phone when you run the command "stuff\adb devices" U r good to go..

If it doesn't, then the drivers are not installed properly, check in Device Manager there are no unknown devices or devices with yellow exclamation marks etc.. Make sure drivers are installed properly. The above condition should be met to root your device.

Please go through the video tutorial in the link attached for Bin4ary root method

Cool Attn Mods

Hi MODs,

If you think this should not be as a separate thread, please merge this with any existing thread about rooting P930 with AT&T ICS

Thanks..

Thumbs up Works like a charm

Many thanks, it took me 5 minutes to download and root my nitro(official ICS).

I recommend making this thread as sticky thread for rooting.

It works but you don't have full root, SU and CWM can be install but when I attempt to boot into recovery, I get the boot certification error. Damn LG for subscribing to the Secure Boot fad, started by Micro$oft. I have the LG MultFlash Tool, where can I download a Stock AT&T Gingerbread firmware?

Anyone else get the same result on V20C, after rooting and flashing CWM cannot reboot into Recovery Mode? It just boots into Fastboot because of boot certificate error. Anyone have an ADB solution that can work in Fastboot?

Okay, once again. YOU HAVE TO UNBRICK NOW. LOOK IN ONE OF SEVERAL UNBRICKING GUIDES FOR OUR DEVICE TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE. Sorry but there is simply no way around it.

Unbrick to flash CWM... only way coming from V20C. If there was a simpler way it would have probably been posted, but there's not.
