LG Revolution being recently released has been rooted and ready to receive custom recoveries and ROMs. The rooting process is a breeze for those familiar with the terminal in Linux or have knowledge about ADB. However, the process is comprehensively explained and you should have no problem understanding it. So let’s get your LG Revolution rooted!
Now the method has proven success for some users but for some it hasn’t worked. The rooting process involves commands to be entered in the command prompt provided you have ADB installed. Enough said, let’s get on with the rooting.
Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.
- To begin, download the Rootkit, extract it to find 3 zip files and copy them to android-sdk-windows\platform-tools.
- Connect your phone to the PC and make sure you select Internet Conenction as the USB connection mode. Make sure USB debugging is checked in Menu > Applications > Development.
- Now open terminal or command prompt and enter the following commands:
adb push su /data/local/temp adb push rageagainsthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage adb push busybox /data/local/temp adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage
Now wait till you get kicked all the way back to your terminal prompt. If you see the “$”, don’t do anything, just keep waiting. When it’s done you’ll be all the way out of ADB, which you will now need to restart. Enter the following commands:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t etx3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system cd /system/bin cat /data/local/temp/su > su cat /data/local/temp/busybox > busybox chmod 4755 su chmod 4755 busybox rm /data/local/temp/su rm /data/local/temp/busybox rm /data/local/temp/rage reboot
That’s it! Your phone should reboot and be rooted. Simply download Superuser from the Market and install it on your phone.
