    Default ICS Universal Root -XDA

    1.) Go here: Root MANY ANDROID! [Upd: 13.10.2012] - xda-developers
    2.) Scroll to attachments & download "Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15.7z"
    3.) Watch the video here: Root ICS/JB with Bin4ry's Restore Method: Xperia S/Ion/etc., LG Optimus G, Xperia Tablet & Many More - YouTube!
    4.) You have root

    If you don't want to watch the video, or go to the link....

    Download this: Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15 (2).7z - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download
    Extract it to somewhere you know how to locate it.

    1.) Enable USB Debugging and Unknown sources
    2.) Plug in phone select charge only
    3.) Run command prompt as admin (start>run>cmd, right click)
    4.) Navigate to where you extracted files
    Ex: if it's in the C:\ drive in the folder Downloads type "c:" then "cd C:\Downloads"
    5.) Make sure you navigated correctly by typing "dir" you should see the files
    6.) Type "stuff\adb devices" to make sure your device is attached.
    If your device was found move on, if not DO NOT CONTINUE you must install the proper drivers.
    7.) Type "runme"
    Now the dos text should turn green and a file will start running, and you should have two, count them, two, options.
    8.) Choose option 1 & hit enter
    Now the dos text should turn green and a file will start running,
    9.) Look on your phone and the Backup & Restore window should be open, press Restore
    Now the program will run and it will reboot your phone several times, do not disconnect until it finishes.

    When it's done...
    You're rooted! Congratulations!

    Just don't delete system apps, it will send your phone into security mode.

    So they're protecting their bloat now, huh? Oh well. The phone has enough resources that it really doesn't matter all that much. Thanks for the warning!

    I use any app called root app it lets you uninstall stuff. It puts in in a recycling bin so you can pull it back out if you want too. I think it might just be freezing the apps but want ever it does I no these apps stop running with is what I want NO sprint apps on my phone this way.

    LG must be paranoid about something. And with the release of the Optimus G and Mach looming, it probably made them overly protective of their phones this time.

    Tried it many time... but haven't got a root... and any another PC programs (unlock root and other) show "device is already root"... but I cann't delete system apps from autoloading with autostarts v.1.7.5. SU don't update too.
