Thanks a lot to goofyextreme for F3 & platinumpresto for F7 feedback
Positive feedback needed for the F6
Non specific device rooting procedures for motochopper under supported OS's are available HERE -> original thread by the author of this tool ... Thanks a lot djrbliss !
My Optimus F5 was preloaded with JB 4.1.2 and i run Ubuntu x64 : Running motochopper on my device rooted it in about 1 min. or 2 !!!
Theorically you do not need something else than the extracted files from the provided archive and it's true for all motochopper supported OS's : Windows, Linux and Mac OS X : adb executable is embedded into this zip for these three operating systems !
Then, to be sure you have a working setup, please run :
From a terminal, please cd into the extracted archive directory and type :
# sudo ./adb.linux devices
# sudo ./adb.linux devices List of devices attached yourdeviceserialnumberhere
First of all you'll need to install LG United Mobile Driver, then REBOOT, and type from an elevated command prompt ("launched as an administrator") :
# adb.exe devices
# adb.exe devices List of devices attached yourdeviceserialnumberhere
Only when you have seen your device serial number in the output of the command "adb devices", you're OK to launch the motochopper tool :
Check that you're inside the extracted motochopper directory and please type :
# sudo ./run.sh
NOTE : For Mac OS X users please refer to the original thread by the author of motochopper (link at the beginning of this post) because i don't know much about Mac OS ...
IMPORTANT NOTE : Some of the LG Optimus Fx Series models recently gained an OTA update ! THE motochopper tool apparently DOES NOT WORK AT ALL if you upgraded your ROM with the OTA update ! It seems to be USELESS to try it in such conditions BUT i think it is still HARMLESS to test the tool -> in the worst case it will fail ... if so, reset your device to factory settings from the Android menu and please try another way to root your phone; THAT SAID I REPEAT THE TOOL IS PROVIDED AS IS AND IF YOU DECIDE TO USE IT, IT WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK ...
See you around,
