How to Root LG G Flex

If you want your LG G Flex to be the best it’s ever been, nothing better than to root it. Discover our method right on this page!

Being released last year, your handset should be out up-to-date with various changes. SRSRoot is the one to deliver all kinds of novelties. They have a precise purpose: to turn your device into a better one. That starts with a faster quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 processor. It continues with many new features.

The operating system chosen for your smartphone is the following version: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The SRSRoot guarantees its presence after the end of the rooting. The app, which comes for free, works with every Android variant. A rooting is possible through a Build ID. We used, for your LG G Flex, this one: JDQ39B. You can use it, too; but you can also select a different one since the SRSRoot allows you the choice.LG-G-Flex-D958

The benefits of this procedure

Here are the names your device’s available as: LG G Flex D955 for Europe, LG G Flex D958 for Hong Kong & Asia, LG G Flex D959 for T-Mobile USA, LG G Flex D950 for AT&T and LG G Flex LS995 for Sprint. The SRSRoot lets you use it on many other products. In exchange for using it, your device receives admin / superuser permission and root-only apps. Apart from these, the phone is also greeted with custom ROMs and customization tools. The battery receives various tweaks to last more. An SRS Server powers the app.

We will now attract your attention to how a rooting messes up with your device. Shortly after the LG G Flex acquires root access, its warranty parts with the device. Having it back is done with a tutorial that’s tailor-made for your smartphone.

The handset cannot keep its root access and system partition if it’s updated. On the other hand, the upgrade isn’t powerful enough to erase the smartphone’s internal or external SD card. By applying the procedure, no important data will be deleted from the device.

Prerequisites

Today’s procedure contains a batch of pre-requisites. By performing them, you have a laptop and a handset that can successfully experience this important procedure. The requirements are displayed in the following list:

  • the laptop must have USB drivers downloaded on it from this online location;
  • it’s best to have them installed there afterwards;
  • then you should enable USB Debugging on your handset;
  • you should also start the creation of a backup for the phone;
  • there must be a full NANDroid backup, too;
  • Windows must be the OS option your laptop works with;
  • charge the handset’s battery until you see the charge level is full;
  • there are some security programs on the laptop and they must be disabled;
  • the smartphone has security programs, too, and they must also be disabled.

Step by step instructions

Time for a look at how a rooting should be done.

  1. Our guide’s first step wants you to download the SRSRoot app on the laptop. This requires the latter to be on this site. From here on, you need to click on a download button and then wait till the procedure is all done.
  2. Once downloaded, the app must experience two things. First, it has to be installed on the laptop; second, you need to open it there.
  3. Return to your LG G Flex after that. There, you’ll have to look for Settings, tap it, then locate this under the option you just enabled: Unknown Sources. After that’s finished, take care of the step asking you to tap USB Debugging. There is no need to activate it if it has already been turned on.
  4. Other actions must be performed now. One of them needs this from you: ensure a connection between your handset and the laptop.
  5. Provide the plugging with your phone’s USB cable. After the two get attached to each other, you have to start the actual rooting.
  6. Your smartphone’s Root Device (All Methods) makes sure this phase gets initiated. Wait until the rooting is already done. The process will generally take somewhere around 10-15 minutes of your time.
  7. So don’t do anything else now except waiting for the rooting to end. If you’re not experiencing a successful rooting, then the steps should be repeated. Fortunately, the process may not land you in trouble. So instead of repeating the previous actions, get the phone restarted.
  8. To properly reboot your handset, you have to activate Reboot System Now. You’ll also have to wait for this to end. Once this part’s completed, the root access will invite you to explore it. So make sure you do just that.

After you get to know all about a rooting’s pros, it will be easy to decide if the root access can stay or go. Should you want to revoke it, you’ll discover a great unrooting tool in the form of the SRSRoot app.
