Root Any LG Android Phone

Root Any LG Android Phone





       Rooting unleashes the true capability of an Android device. By using root apps, custom mods, ROMs, frameworks and kernels, you can enjoy the best possible system optimization, performance tweaks and graphic customization.





- Requirements -

Any LG Phone 

Download BusyBox to your phone

 Download Stump Root APK to your phone



- Here's how to root your LG Phone -


Step 1. Go To Settings->Security->Check Unknown Sources.

Step 2. Download Busy Box from the Google Play Store if you haven't already.

Step 3. Download Stump Root using the link below


Step 4. Download Root Checker from the Google Play Store


Step 5. Open Stump Root on your device and press the "Grind" button.





Step 6. Some devices you will get a message that says the model is not on their list and would you like to force the root (or something along these lines) Tell it to force the root and wait till it's done. I did this with a LG G2 and it worked like a charm.


Step 7. Once the phone has rebooted go to the Google Play store and download SuperSU by Chainfire.




Step 8. Open root checker and check for root access. You may now delete Stump Root and your done!

Eat 24 Application Review

Eat24



Time to change it up a little. This review is about a food ordering App that I use all the time called Eat24. Eat24 can be downloaded on Android and Apple devices and connects you to local delivery and take out restaurants. Honestly this app really opened my eyes to a whole new group of places that deliver in my area and I love having options. Average delivery fee is $2 or more depending on the location. They also send you coupons on the weekend for a couple dollars off your order! Ordering is easy the App runs very smooth and I haven't hit an area yet that is lacking in choices. Overall I'd rate this app a 9.5 !!! Only point deduction is the delivery charges. I understand them but do not agree with them, I'd rather tip the delivery person an extra $2 than pay a delivery charge which probably doesn't go to the driver anyway!

Please remember that rooting any phone does in fact void your warranty on the device and that I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone in the process of rooting it. If you have any issues you are more than welcome to ask in the comments and I will do my best to assist you. This does not mean that I will be able to fix your phone this only means I will try!



* Before Rooting your phone please make sure any and all information that you may need is backed up and that you remove the memory card from your phone *





- Root Method for the LG Optimus F60 -


Requirements

- LG Optimus F60 and Micro USB Cable

- LG United Mobile Drivers  downloaded and installed.

- Download this Root.zip

- Make sure your phone has at least 40% battery before rooting.



Let's Get Started

Step 1. Enable Developer mode by going to Settings>About Phone>Software Information>Tap on Build Number until the message "You are Now A Developer" pops up. Inside the Developer Options you must check off USB Debugging.

Step 2. Open the Command Prompt in the Unzipped Root folder. Then Copy and Paste these commends one by one.

adb.exe push lg_root.sh /data/local/tmp/

adb.exe push busybox /data/local/tmp/

adb.exe push UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp/

Step 3. Put your device in Download Mode by first powering off the device then press and hold the Volume Up and plug in the USB until Download Mode appears on the screen.

Step 4. In the Command Prompt in the Unzipped Root Folder run the command below

Send_Command.exe \\.\COM5

(To find which COM port your device is under open the device manager and click on Ports. Your device port is listed under the drop down menu.)


Step 5. After running the command on the correct COM port you will be presented with a root shell # symbol. In the root shell enter the command below using copy and paste.

sh /data/local/tmp/lg_root.sh dummy 1 /data/local/tmp/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp/busybox

You should see something happening on the screen. After this has completed pull your battery wait 30 seconds and place the battery back in and turn your phone back on. You now are Rooted!






Make sure to download the App Root Checker from the Google Play Store open the app and check root status.

I did not come up with this root myself. Special thanks to XDA for having this method available! From what I have read this method works on every LG device right now and is not very hard to accomplish. Thanks for reading make sure to sign up for email updates on the left hand side on this blog!

Samsung Galaxy Avant Root Metro PCS

Root Instructions
Metro PCS






Please always remember rooting your device can be risky and does void your warranty. If you choose to root your device it is at your own risk and I will not replace your phone if you damage it. So please make sure to follow the instructions very carefully and do not skip any steps or go make some food in the middle of the process.

Requirments

Samsung Galaxy Avant with more than 40% Battery Life

Micro USB Cable

Root Instructions



2. Extract the Root Package to place of your choosing. I usually create a new folder and extract to that folder so none of the files are mixed in with other things. This makes it easier to find the root file and Odin.

3. Enable Developer Options and turn on USB Debugging on your phone. For a tutorial on how to do this click HERE.

4. Power off your phone. Once your phone is powered off press and hold the following buttons Volume Down+Home+Power keep pressing these till you see a warning message on the screen then press Volume Up. This should place the phone into Odin Mode or Download Mode.





5. Open Odin3-v3.07.exe and plug your phone into the computer using the USB cable.

6. Odin should now say your device has been added. If Odin cannot connect to your phone you probably have to install the Samsung USB Drivers.





7. Click on "PDA" and select the file CF-Auto-Root.tar.

8. Click on "Start" and the phone will begin flashing the Root file.

9. Once the Odin has finished and the phone has rebooted you should now be rooted. Go to the Google Play Store and download Root Checker to make sure this worked. Also check to see if the SuperSU App is now on your phone.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Launch

Samsung Galaxy S6 Launch Date






   There is rumor floating around that we may end up seeing the new Samsung Galaxy S6 on April 11th for all 4 major carriers in the US. Word has come from a loose lipped Samsung Rep (supposedly) and I for one hope it is as good as they say. To be honest I actually think I like my S3 more than my S4 or the S5. I still get each new model because I do love how innovative Samsung is and they seem to be the only company who is still on the cutting edge of technology. There are going to be 2 model's of the S6, one with the edge and one without. Samsung has reportedly racked in about 15 million pre-orders for the S6 edge and another 5 million for the normal version. Samsung is saying that the S6 Edge will only be available in limited capacity, which just means it's going to be a pain in the ass to get your hand's on one! Hopefully they change this, I for one will be grabbing one the day it comes out and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival. Come on Samsung HURRY UP!






How to Enable a Disabled App Android

How to Enable Disabled Apps

Android How To






I had a customer today who couldn't find their Google Play Store. After looking through the phone a little, I noticed that Google Play had been disabled somehow. This is a pretty easy thing to fix which can instantly make people think their is not working right. When any app is disabled on an Android phone it actually cannot be seen on your homescreen or in the App drawer anymore. So I figured I would share how to solve this pesky problem. 




Instructions


Go To the setting's icon on your phone. Either by pressing menu and clicking on settings or by clicking on the settings icon in your app drawer.

Then scroll down to Applications

Swipe the screen to the right where it says "all"

Scroll to the bottom of the list where you will find any disabled apps

Click on the App you wish to enable. 

Last step click "Enable"



Note: The option to enable did not show up on the Google Play Store. All I did was enable every Google App and uninstall the updates on the Google Play Store and it enabled itself. This will make the Google Play store reappear if it has disappeared from your phone.

CIA Helps Justice Department Violate Americans Freedom

CIA and Justice Department Aloud to do Anything Now?





    So the CIA has reportedly teamed up with the Justice Department to violate some more of Americans rights. Apparently they have designed a technology which enables them to locate someone using their cell phone and get information off of it, without reason or permission. I'm sorry but don't we have a right to privacy? Or is that just a joke? They claim they are using this to locate wanted felons but who's to say that true? Remember they didn't even tell us they were doing this until after the fact. I for one do not agree with this at all and think that there should be a ton more regulation on both these departments, shouldn't the american people have a say if they want this technology in use or not? 


   First thing on my to do list put as much weird shit as possible on my phone for them to see. Then sit back and hope they come knocking. I'll be waiting with all the proof I need to show that this is just a blatant disregard for the constitution and that they are wasting there time doing this. You think the people that are actually wanted by these organizations are just giving their number to them for tracking purposes... (kinda doubt that) Or for that matter that they would be stupid enough to have a phone number for very long or under their own name. I wonder how many people on America's most wanted list do they have a phone number for? Furthermore if you have their number, isn't it easier to use GPS tracking and arrest the person... This needs to be addressed we are slowly becoming prisoners in this FREE country.
