    Yep. Tried Gingerbreak 1.2.1, z4Root 1.3.0 and Super One Click. All of them fail.

    Root has been gained for the LG Esteem, which is similar to the marquee internally.

    LG Esteem OneClickRoot NOW READY!! | AndroidNerds.net

    Maybe this will help?

    YES... YES... YES... The ESTEEM root will work on the Marquee. You need to do a manual update from market to come up to version 3.0.

    Thank you so very much Hoovhartid.

    Thank you so very much Hoovhartid.
    Glad to help!

    However, what exactly did you have to update to version 3.0? The android market? or the root program?

    also, to parrot nosajsam...please report with any issues.

    Does SU download and allow permissions titanium backup, etc.?

    does the wifi tether work?

    thanks in advance!

    also, to parrot nosajsam...please report with any issues.

    Does SU download and allow permissions titanium backup, etc.? Yes, TI Backup works. So does Root Explore, Cache Cleaner, and Busy Box Installer

    does the wifi tether work?Wireless Tethering does work using "Wireless Tether 2.0.7"

    thanks in advance!

    I think deleting Superuser, then performing a factory reset would put you back at square one.

    This is a straight rip of conversaions on this very forum. They appear to have been translated to a different language and then back to english. I suspect an Indian dialect being that this is from an Indian web site.
    Read my posts on this forum and then compare to the ones you linked. They look a little too familiar.
    Hey, why invent when you can just copy.

    So has anyone tested this to make sure it can be brought back to root?? I want root my marquee to recalibrate the battery and bring it back to stock in case they ever have updates in the future so I won't run into any troubles.So basically not trying to do anything crazy.

    i figured it out. (I found this on androidforums.com)

    Use root explorer and delete superuser.apk from the /system/app folder. Go to the Android market and download and install super user. Use root explorer again and delete su from /system/bin. Go to the market and uninstall super user.

    did a factory reset & now I am back to square one.

    When usb cable plugged, should I choose just charge or mass storage?
    I tried both options, but the run.bat halt in this stage for long time
    [*] Waiting for device...
    * daemon not running. starting it now *
    * daemon started successfully *

    I had the usb debug enabled, installed the LG driver and restarted the pc.

    Hi guys,

    Thinking about trying to root the Marquee... So far this is a bit sketchy though. Half of the drivers for the LG phone do not even work... Still feeling this out...

    Drivers not available:
    CDC Serial
    B - Project

    I also do not have an 'internet connection mode' option.

    How to Root.
    Try these drivers here: (thx again to tcaudill01)

    LG USB drivers here: LGUnitedMobileDriver_S4981MAN32AP22_ML_WHQL_Ver_3.2.1_2.exe

    Your device must be in USB Debugging mode. To turn it on, go to Settings > Applications > Development and check the box. Note that you can only select this while the phone is unplugged.

    After installing the USB drivers connect the phone to the PC.
    Pull down the notification bar at the top of the phones screen and click on USB Connected.
    Set the phone to Internet Connection mode (CHARGE ONLY not Mass Storage).

    Download LG_Esteem_Root.zip

    Unpack and open run.bat

    How to Unroot
    Use root explorer and delete superuser.apk from the /system/app folder. Go to the Android market and download and install super user. Use root explorer again and delete su from /system/bin. Go to the market and uninstall super user.

    Do a factory reset & you will be back to square one.

    Also thanks. Being new to Android with a more obscure phone I thought I might run into trouble rooting but following these instructions it was completely painless.

    Very well written and great for everyone, especially the noobs.
    If we ever get far enough along to do a Marquee FAQ, we need to place your instructions at the front.
