Hey all!

I recently bought the LG Phoenix 2 (LG k371) from ATT, and I really want to root it. But alas, I was unable to find any root method that works for my phone. Does anyone know of a method that will currently work for my device? It is running MarshMallow 6.0. I can update with any other info needed.

Thanks!

Then I guess I have to wait like the others.

I still have my original K371. It is still bootlooping and I haven't found a fix. I tried the LG mobile recovery tool and even though it has the original OS and firmware, the tool says there is no update available (but they did release an android 7 OTA). Maybe with the source code for it being available now something could be done? No idea. I would be willing to mail it to someone to play around with if in the US - assuming it were returned in a reasonable amount of time.

Kirito 9 are waiting for a LG Phoenix 2, in almost if you recommend you update it by Lg mobile support tool since with that application you can download the kdz

From what I have been able to discern there is no available kdz. Source is available http://opensource.lge.com/osSch/list?types=ALL&search=lgk371 but updates are done OTA only.

If you are looking for the update for this model here are the links

Https://xdmd.sl.attcompute.com/agents/57605/1485/a-b.up

A = represents the version you have if it is 10b, then it is the k37110b

B = represents what you want to see there are 3 versions 10h 10n 20j
10h = android 6
11n = android 6
20j = android 7

I recommend using the XDM download manager program.

I just got my device over the weekend and already updated it. I'm working on uploading the source code for both MM and N for this device. I'm gonna do all I can to try and find stable root for MM/N versions but don't hold your breath on this nor ask for ETA!! I'm new to this snapdragon stuff so be patient.

I'm wondering if it's possible to downgrade back to 10b safely. My device came with 11n and I updated to N to get a feel of Nougat.

Do not even think about it unless you want to lose your money

Hmm, guess I should've kept on MM instead where a temp root was possible. Well that sucks :').

If you are stuck at the logo screen

If you rooted or tried rooting your phone and are stuck at the logo screen.
You unfortunately now to flash your device with sock firmware. You can use Odin.
I'm having the same issue looking for root method for this phone. If I have to convert to lollipop again somehow I will. Please help.

Anybody else try Kingroot then Supersume and have the same trouble or had any success?

Well I totally boned my phone I think. Kingroot works but it caused a lot of instability. It reboots the phone within minutes of getting temp rooted. So I tried supersume to remove kingroot (which seems to also have a pretty bad reputation as far as privacy goes) to replace kingroot with supersu. Everything seemed to go fine, the binary updated and looked good. Once the phone reboots though, it freezes on the AT&T logo. When I try to factory reset the android pops on screen for about 5 seconds and nothing changes. I can't do anything with adb. Whenever I try to list devices the phone is detected but it says it isn't "Authorized". If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it.
