Hii guys i am Kd and today i will guide you to root lg optimus net p-690

Note:for recovery go to
1. Download Superoneclick 2.2
After downloading extract it anywhere you please. Now go to ur system folder i.e where you have installed your OS (i.e Win xp, win 7 etc) Lets say its in the 'X' Drive. So go to X:/WINDOWS/system32/cmd.exe and copy it, now go to where you installed Superoneclick. Inside the folder there'll be a folder as "ADB" open it and paste the 'cmd.exe' you copied.

2. Now you need the LG ADB Drivers

Download the drivers and install it:-

It is recommended that you restart after installing the drivers.

3. Connect your Device

After installing the Drivers Connect Your Optimus Net using the data cable. In your Device go to settings>Applications>Development>USB Debbuging. Check the box beside it. It will give you a warning just click OK. When you connect your Device you will see 'Turn USB storage on" option DO NOT TURN IT ON. After connecting you will see in the notification bar that "USB Debbuging On" it means you have done evrythng ok uptil now.

Now before rooting Go to settings>Storage>Unmount SD Card it will ask you if you want to unmount click OK. After it is unmounted you can begin rooting. MAKE SURE YOU UNMOUNT THE SD CARD OTHERWISE IT MAY BE COMPLETELY ERASED.

4. Now Let's Root

Now Go to the ADB folder. Remember the cmd.exe you pasted there? Click on it.


In the commands write the following:- [Give the exact spaces i have given OTHERWISE IT WILL NOT WORK!!]:-

adb devices (press enter)(after this command you should see your device id)
adb shell (press enter) (after this command you should see $ sign)
$ echo 1 >/data/local/lge_adb.conf (press enter)


Now go to Where you extracted Superoneclick and click on superoneclick.exe.

In the window on the Top Left hand Side of the window there will be an option 'ROOT'.
CLick on it!
it doesnot come on 3.4+
now i am rebooting my device

note:::[+] Rush did it ! It's a GG, man ![+] Killing ADB and restarting as root... enjoy!
when you get this message reboot your phone so that reboot process completes successfully

Hence, you have a rooted Optimus Net do whatever you want

Post replies and tell me if it worked

Thumbs up Worked!
I will admit I am an android n00b, in fact, this is my first droid and only 3 weeks out of the packaging and I STILL managed to root it. A great DIY post. Works like a charm....

... and now I will try to figure the rest of this root business out.

Like ChickenCanFly, I am having problems with device manger recognizing the device and it return allowing ADB to display the device. I have tried the LG driver from above, and also the drivers provided from LG's website with no success. I tried on two different Windows 7 (32bit), Win Server 08 R2 (64bit) and Windows XP Pro (32bit) with no positive outcome. It seems that I can not get this phone to be recognized by any version of Windows. Any help would be appreciated.

Wink LG Optimus Net Driver Fix if Problem
Problem fixed!

For those having issues with the driver working, go to the official LG page here:

Download LG Mobile Support Tool

Once Installed, choose "Install USB Driver"

Then choose the model number of your phone. (Can be found by pulling the battery and looking on the info panel)

Install and then go through your rooting method.

Hope this helps someone else!
