Default [GUIDE] How to root LG Optimus L5 on Jelly Bean 4.1.2

PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK! WORKED 100% FOR ME!

OK, so this guide will allow you to root your Android Device in minutes. This has also been confirmed working for L5 on ICS.

Instructions:

1) Ensure you have more than 50% battery power.
2) Take your settings and go to Developer Options.
3) Enable USB debugging.
4) Download the beauty which roots your device (attached below)
5) Connect Phone via USB, and select Charge Only.
6) Open vRoot.
7) Wait till it detects your device (ensure you have all the drivers installed).
8) If not detected, click the green button.
9) Once your phone is detected, click the green button again[ROOT].
10) There will be a lot of Chinese and you will see in English [ROOT].
11) Your phone should now reboot.
12) Congratulations. Your Android is now rooted. Check the Superuser installed!

Please hit the thanks button if this helped you!

PS: I AM NOt THE PERSON WHO DEVELOPED VROOT. IT IS DEVELOPED BY A GROUP OF CHINESE DEVELOPERS! I CANT POST THE LINK TO THE WEBSITE SINCE I AM A NEW MEMBER! YOU CAN GOOGLE VROOT TO KNOW ABOUT THEM!

I can say by experience that AXD96's solution only works the first time you root your phone. If you lose root, it won't work again. I think this is because the method uses an exploit that is already patched on most new ROMs

something is wrong
vROOT use the same "masterkey" exploit, if that exploit not work it try another exploit,but our L5 on 4.1.2v20D has got only an exploit avariable, THE 2ND MASTERKEY EXPLOIT, BECAUSE THE 1st MASTERKEY has been fixed in the first version of 4.1.2
on v20A and v20B i think there was also the GANDALF exploit
on the last v20G someone said me that LG patched also the 2nd MASTERKEY exploit
saurik said something about a 3rd exploit of MASTERKEY series but i am not sure
cydiaimpactor dont close this exploit after root, and i hope that, if i unroot my device, i am be able to root again
the problem of exploit patched of cydiaimpactor is the same of vROOT

however i prefer to use an english software created by a serius developper as SAURIK
