If you've decided to root your device, most likely, you already know all the pros and cons of this process. If not, then we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with all the aspects of rooting because, aside from the attractive benefits such as extended functionality of your phone, it comes complete with a loss of warranty and the risk of damaging the device. Now that we've warned you, let's get straight to rooting your LG device.
- First of all, install KingoRoot Android (PC version) on a Windows computer. You can find it on the KingoRoot website. The software is totally free. Once you install the program, open it.
- Take your phone/tablet and activate USB debugging. You can either do it yourself in the "Settings" menu or with the help of the program. To enable USB debugging, go to "Settings," choose "About device," and tap seven times on "Build number." Then return to "Settings" and open "Developer Options." Now you can enable USB debugging. Another option is to connect your device to the computer using the original USB cable. In that case, KingoRoot will help you activate USB debugging.
- If you haven't connected your LG device to the computer yet, it is time to do it. After that, KingoRoot may initiate the installation of the required device driver software. It shouldn't take much time.
- All the devices working on Android 4.2 or later will display a prompt to allow USB debugging from your computer. Tap "OK" to confirm it.
- All you have to do now is click on the "ROOT" button to start rooting your device. It will take a few minutes to complete the process.
- We want to warn you that sometimes the program fails to complete the process successfully. The reason why it happens is that the software tries multiple scripts, and they may not always work for your device. We hope our how-to will help you successfully root your LG device.
