There’s been some confusion with rooting the LG Optimus G so before you jump into the root guide make sure this is the right root for you. To perform this root you will need a Windows PC as it is not currently available for any other version. You will also need a Sprint or Korean version of the LG Optimus. This will not work for the unlocked LG Optimus G or the AT&T LG Optimus G.


You will also need to have USB debugging mode enabled in order to complete this guide. You can follow the link that I provided and find out how to do that if you don’t know already.

Root LG Optimus G

Step 1. Install the required LG driver.

Step 2.  Once installed download and extract the file to your Windows PC. Put the file somewhere you will be familiar with. We always recommend the desktop for this.

Step 3. Make sure the Lg Optimus G has enabled USB Debugging and unknown sources.

Step 4. Plug your LG Optimus G into the Windows PC with the USB cable supplied by the manufacturer.

Step 5. Go to the file that you extracted and put it on your desktop (or place of your choice) earlier and open it. Inside the right mouse click on the RootOptimusG.bat file. From here you will need to select run as administrator.

Step 6. You will now be presented with ” Nhan “y” neu ban muon root, nhan “n” de thoat ” it’s normal. Now type the letter “y” and select enter.

Step 7. Being similar to the Korean phone you will see some Korean text. It’s normal. Wait until you see in English: “Press any key to continue” and do as it says. Press any key to continue.

Step 8. Once you do that you will be presented with this next message “ Nhan chon “Restore my data” tren man hinh dien thoai!” Wait for a moment then press the “Restore my data” option from your phone screen.

Your mobile will now reboot on its own twice. This is normal also, and once done, will be completely rooted for you.
