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 prefered to us "cydia impactor" because it is in english, and created by a well-known developer.
link here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448085

"cydia impactor" is made by Saurik, well known into iOS Development/Hacking creating and manteining Cydia...
it should support all E610/12 firmware from 4.0.3 to 4.1.2(until v20d)

If you are on V20G or V20I you need to flash a pre-rooted kdz or try something else like "towelroot" release by geohot
After you get root remember to install SuperSu

it is maked by the creator of cydia on ios
it work great, i used it to root my l5 with 4.1.2

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

Its only the installer which is Chinese! The basic functions are all English! And it's the best super user I've ever used!
