Hello guys, I decided to post the an easy method to root your g flex! You don't even need to use any command prompt for this. The only problem is that this is chinese language, so you have to click the exact buttons. At the end of this tutorial, you will have a rooted phone. Until now, no bricked phones have come out of this process! It only takes 5 minutes!

1. Download this file: http://tinylink.net/huxs3 <--- HELP ME! OR http://goo.gl/U6Jwaf
2. Install the software, using the installation buttons as you would on any other windows installation.
3. When you have installed it, you will see a green button, press it. Then connect your phone on USB debugging mode.
4. When the phone is connected the software will recognise the phone and the green button will show "ROOT", click on it.
5. The phone is going to be rooted in some seconds and the process is finished when it will show a tick on the software.
6. The phone will reboot.
7. When it is rebooted, go to google play and download super su.
8. Open super su and it will ask you to update the binaries, and you must click on update, and then normal.
9. A window in chinese will pop up on the phone, this is the screen that allows you to give root permissions to any app. You must click the button on the right.
10. You are done! Root process is complete!
11. This is the most important step. Leave a thanks! If you liked the tutorial, please show it to me!

Settings > General > About Phone > Software Information > Tap "Build Number" about 7 or 8 times to enable Developer Mode.

Then Settings > General > Developer Options > USB Debugging

Vroot and Kingo root are unsafe methods of root, use IOROOT.

Its a chineze root method that works with almost amy version of android. I heard it installs spyware and loggers on phones. IOROOT is just as easy and safe
