    Default Re: Rooting Your Optimus Elite The Easy Way

    Hi folks - Does it matter when I root the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus Elite: before or after the required Essentials with Mobile ID firmware update?

    Default Re: Rooting Your Optimus Elite The Easy Way

    I am truly ticked off. all I want to do is save my google apps to the sd card which has 32 gb available, because the frigging phone only provides 1.25 gb. However I get no input as to where the apps are saved. Is my only alternative to root? I am not that familiar with linux, but because my first computer was a 386 I know DOS so I am not afraid to do stuff and prompts do not scare me, I have just not done this stuff for years.. It is stupid that I have to delete apps or stop them because there is no room, I am sensing a conspiracy. If they are only going to allow you the internal storage for apps why don't they just give you enough!

    Hello!

    So I have this problem:

    And I tried this:

    But that sadly didn't seem to correct it.

    So then I tried this:

    ..and that didn't seem to make a difference either.

    Update::

    I messed around with this a bit more today and got it to work.

    SuperUser needed to be Updated, apparently, the app itself. Though after I updated the app, I did have to put the phone into debug mode before running it - but then it all worked like a charm.

    Not sure why there was no prompt that the app needed updating last night. Ah well, at least it's working now! ^^

    Sharronji,

    Have you tried accessing your apps via the Settings Menu? If you go into "Manage Apps" and click on the individual apps in there, most of them allow you the option to move them onto your sdcard. There are some, however, that do not.

    I downloaded the two APK's and put them on my SD. I ran the Ministro APK and it says it installed. When I go to my apps, it is not there. If i go into Manage Apps, I do see it. Yes, i've tried looking at every app in the All Apps section and tried sorting as i know sometimes it does not order correctly. Any thoughts on how to run Ministro when i can't even click on it? thanks!

    After looking around, I think I do not actually run Ministro (I saw on one youtube video he quickly says something like, "you won't see Ministro, but you will see Poot."

    ...so I ran Poot.
    It asked me to download the QT libraries.
    Clicked "press here to Poot"

    It says "Done pooting" at the bottom.
    Click "Get Superuser"
    (It goes out to Google Play.)
    Install Superuser
    Open Superuser

Ive used it on my optimus elite without issue as have many other elite owners. But for the sake of saying so,what you do with your device is up to you. If you brick it not following the guide (with this method I do not see how you could..but anything is possible), you are responsible.

    Prerequisites : New elite owners should update their device with the LG update before rooting. This will prevent the need to re-root after update. Users who have rooted with any other root method who have returned to stock root using the jcase root method should update using the LG update to prevent the need to reroot after update. Otherwise anyone using any other root method including jcase method,does not need to root using this method. YOU ARE ALREADY ROOTED. Why use this??

    Step 1 : Download Ministro II.apk provided below and install it. Let it update and get what it needs.

    Step 2 : Download poot.apk listed below and start it. Click "press here to poot"..it happens almost instantaneously. Probably wont notice much except the log output.

    Step 3 : Click "get superuser". This will open google play store to download superuser. If play store doesnt load it correctly,stalls,or just goes to default play store home screen,type superuser in search prompt and it will provide the superuser download page. Install superuser,open it and move to the info tab click tap for updates and let it update,depending on your connection you may get a fail. Dont worry try it again. Superuser should update the binary for su and you are pretty much done. You can download root check if you like from play store to verify. Or you can use the poot built-in root check. screen shot is provided below to show you the output for a successful root. After root enjoy and if you meet giantpune on android forums or here. thank this individual for providing this extremely simple root method. Trust me,using the other root methods vs this is a task. So a thank you would be deserved.
