How to Root LG G2x P999

We have something that your LG G2x P999 will love: a rooting tutorial. Dedicated to this phone, the guide lets you get root access for it on your own. Don’t worry: the procedure is easy to perform!

The paragraph starting now contains info about the rooting tool you’ll use for your phone. It’s an app that’s called SRSRoot. Even more exciting: this method is free to use on whatever device you own. The app supports various gadget brands, as well as their release date, CPU, OS and so on. With that in mind, you’ll never lose the phone’s Android 2.2.2 Froyo version while using the SRSRoot. On the plus side, the processor (a dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9), will become faster.

The benefits of this method

As soon as the freeware hits your LG G2x P999, the latter is going to display a bunch of new features. The addition of root-only apps and admin / superuser permission is also guaranteed. The phone can be customized, too, and there are custom ROMs to also expect from the rooting app. Instead of bloatware and security problems, you phone will have a longer battery life.LG-G2x-P999

You need to settle on a Build ID for the rooting. If you don’t know which one works best, we’re offering the one we used: FRG83G. In case you aren’t a newbie at these kinds of things, you can work with another Build ID. The SRSRoot will easily unroot your device if you want it to. Also, this freeware’s powered by an SRS Server.

All of the devices which gain root access get their warranty revoked. Yours will also go through that. As usual, though, the warranty isn’t going to spend much time away from this phone. Using the right kind of tutorial, you will soon witness the return of this element.

Once upgraded, a rooted product gets its system partition deleted. The device will then be left with a missing root access. There is no serious damage in store for the gadget’s internal and external SD cards. The important data is more than safe when it comes to an update.

Prerequisites

You’re now going to witness our requirements:

  • turn off your notebook’s and phone’s security programs;
  • the notebook needs the presence of phone-appropriate USB drivers;
  • download these by launching this link;
  • next, flash the drivers on the notebook;
  • the handset’s USB Debugging is to be turned on by tapping it;
  • backups are very much needed if you don’t want to have damaged data on the phone;
  • there should be a Windows OS variant on your handset;
  • charge, next, the battery that belongs to your LG G2x P999;
  • create a full NANDroid backup.

Step by step instructions

Your next job is the following: use our steps to have a rooted device.

  1. This is how our first step needs you to behave: locate the SRSRoot app at this address. A download button has to show up on the page we indicated. Click on it. The SRSRoot will be moved from that link to your notebook.
  2. Flash, next, this app there and then open it. Tapping Menu and Settings on the phone is your next job. After ending with these steps, we urge you to turn on Unknown Sources, an option under the one named Settings.
  3. No need to perform this next step; only do it if you haven’t tapped the option we’ll mention. The latter is called USB Debugging. To move on, we suggest achieving a connection between the phone and notebook.
  4. Having one happen is a job for the smartphone’s own USB cord. The rooting has to happen once the two are plugged to each other as mentioned.
  5. You will have to begin this much awaited process by locating this on the P999: Root Device (All Methods). After you spot the option, all you have to do is activate it. Letting the rooting start should be the next action.
  6. Then you will be asked to wait for about 15 minutes. This is the approximate waiting time till the rooting is finished. The process can even end faster. But if it doesn’t and those minutes become 20 or much more, you need to repeat the steps.
  7. After everything will be alright again, you’ll have to do this: activate, on the LG G2x, Reboot System Now. This is the method via which the phone can successfully restart.

When you’re done with all of these tasks and the handset has been rebooted, its novelties will be ready to shine. Look at all of them and make sure you also use them. This experimentation once done, you’ll be able to decide whether to keep the root access or discard it. In case the latter sounds better, you have the same freeware at your beck and call.

Of importance is our comment section, too!
