Re: I have an LG Optimus Zone Vs410PP need help rooting
It was fairly simple, if you know a little bit about what is going on. Here's what I did (Under Win7, already had android SDK installed):
1. Locate and download SuperOneClick v1.7 "rageagainstthecage" version (some antivirus may see it as a threat, from what I understand it is not)
2. Locate and download the Universal ADB USB Driver (https://github.com/koush/UniversalAdbDriver)
3. Install the Universal ADB driver, then browse to the install folder and edit the INF file. Add the following lines in the LG section. You may need to double-check your phone, but these were the IDs for my Optimus Zone. Save the file (elevated perms may be necessary):
%LG% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6244
%LG% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6244&MI_04
4. Connect-up your LG, put it in debug mode. Check in "Devices and Printers" to see if the device installed properly. If it did not (yellow bang) then you will need to right-click, choose the first yellow bang (hardware ID in the properties should match the above), and click "Change Settings" then "Update Driver".
5. If you have to manually update the driver, you may have to go about it the long way. I had to click "Browse my computer..." then "Let me pick from a list..." then "Have disk..." before browsing all the way to the Universal ADB folder, plus I had to click "OK" through several warnings.
6. Once the ADB USB drivers are installed, turn off debugging on your Optimus Zone. Leave the USB connected.
7. Start SuperOneClick 1.7, choose "rageagainstthecage" in the top right, and click "root" on the left.
8. When "Waiting for device" shows up, turn on debugging on the Optimus Zone. Let SuperOneClick do its thing (takes a few minutes)
9. Once everything looks done run the test. Now, disconnect and power cycle your Optimus Zone
10. SuperUser may not work; simply update it from the Play store... the new version works like a charm
And that was all I had to do.... Good luck!
