Unfortunatelly nobody seems to get root, i will try to find out why it worked for me...



I got root acces (and so did a friend of mine) but for some weird reason nobody else seems to get it with the steps i posted. I will explain step by step what i did and had on my pc while gaining root acces:

- I am working on a fresh Windows 7 64 bit pc
- I have never had any lg software installed on it (just formated my hard drives and re installed Windows)
- I have a stock non-branded Dutch LG p-880
- I connected my phone, put it in USB-Debugging mode
- Found out not all of the drivers where installed correctly
- Went to the LG website, downloaded and installed the LGMobile support tool
- In the support tool i went to instal drivers (at the right top), whent to the LGP-880 and double clicked for installing the drivers
- I had the phone connectivity switched on at LG PC Software
- Then i ran the root.bat file and nothing happend
- Changed the phone's connectivity to Charging only and ran the boot.bat file again and that did the trick.





First off all I have to mention i didn't do any development at all and credits go to kennethpenn for his ''One Click HTC One X (AT&T/Rogers/Others) (Win/Mac/Linux) root'' and to one of my close friends for telling me about the tool.

I just wanted to find out how to get root and thought, why not? So i started the script and it gave me root acces, installed SU and a Busybox.

This is how to do it:

- Download and install the LG Optimus 4x HD drivers from the LGMobile Support Tool (you can download it from LG's website or download it here) Start the program, at the top right corner press install drivers and look for the LG P880 then double klick
- Download kennethpenn's root tool here and extract it to a folder you want
- Plug your device in your computer and turn USB Debugging on: Settings, developer options, USB Debugging. Make sure your connection option is set to charge only.
- Now double click root.bat
- Your device will restart a couple of times and congratulations: You've got root

I did all of this without installing/using lg pc suite

As always, i am not responsible (neither is kennethpenn) for bricking your device.

I tried 3 times, all failed :(
I'm on V10b
What FW are on?
V10b. Are you sure you installed the drivers correctly? I installed them with the LGMobile Support tool (you can download it at LG's website orhere)
Start the program, at the top right corner press install drivers and look for the LG P880 then double klick. Reconnect your phone and try again

Very strange, im on v10b Dutch stock version. Did everything on the first post and it worked within 5 minutes. All you guys installed the driver via the LGMobile software tool?

You can also try with uninstalling lg pc sync and then selecting your phones connectivity to lg software ?

I used Windows 7 64
