You will need to:
- unlock it’s Bootloader. If the “fastboot oem unlock” command will not work (and I’m quite sure it will not, since we’re talking about a USA LG device), you can stop here and throw the phone out the window.
- if by some any miracle you will be able to unlock the bootloader, you have two ways of rooting it:
1. Using TWRP and a superuser zip file (magisk or the now Chinese owned supersu). The main problem with this is that you will need to compile TWRP yourself, since I doubt anyone will bother for such an obscure device.
2. Using a prerooted boot image. You will need the stock boot image, install the latest magisk manager, let it root it and then flash it via fastboot. This is particularly difficult because you will need to decrypt the kdz file (if any available) in order to get the boot.img
Even if by a greater miracle you will be able to get 1 or 2 working, there still is a huge chance that the fastboot flash command will be disabled.
Forget about solutions like king/kingoroot. Best case scenario they will fail. Worst case scenario they will softbrick the phone by gaining temporary root and then modifying /system. That will in turn trigger dm-verity which will cause the soft brick.
Forget about the scams like oneclickroot. Their so called techs will try the aforementioned and fail and you will waste your $40.
Sorry To deliver the bad news, but there’s no way out of it.
Any sage advice on the [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_INCONSISTENT_CERTIFICATES] issue when sideloading apps?
@jfn0802 said they had success with sideloading, but haven't been online in ages, and none of the rest of us seem to have had the same success. Minimum, that's what I would like to accomplish.
[side note, has anyone switched from Verizon with this phone? I'm looking to, but I'm wondering a couple of things like, does verizon have the mobile hotspot function restricted from use on other carriers? & etc & just wondering how it's doing off-verizon for anyone.]
adb shell and the pm uninstall -k --user 0
I'm trying to root the LG Exalt LTE, or LG VN220, from Verizon. Initially, I've attempted the common rooting kits, such as KingoRoot as well as the tools described around XDA. However all failed. I suspect the cause to be the restrictive permissions of /data/local/tmp, which prevents execution of binaries. I believe any kit using this location will likely fail to achieve anything.
As such, I've been looking to achieve the same using manual techniques. The first step, as in most rooting activity is to put the device into USB debugging mode. To do this on the VN220, first compose ##7764726220. When asked for a service code, use 000000 to access a special menu. Select the Developer Options > USB Debugging and select On. There is an additional menu below named Select USB configuration, from which you can select Media Transfer Protocol or RNDIS among other options.
With that done, you can verify that you can now communicate with the device via ADB. To do so, download the Minimal ADB and Fastboot bundle. While I was successful in querying the device with ADB with
fastboot oem unlock
fastboot oem device-id
