Now that we’ve made it clear that you must follow some requirements before rooting the phone, here is the guide that will guide you on the way to perform this procedure with success.LG-Optimus-G-F180K

Important instructions

  1. The start to every rooting tutorial (and other sorts of procedures) is step one. In the case of the LG Optimus G F180K, this one needs to go in the following manner: download the necessary Root application, then save it on the laptop you keep close to you for daily work. Now make sure that you follow this action up by extracting the files which are to be found inside that app.
  2. The second step will tell you that you have to save them on the same computer (in a special folder). Once they are in that location, you have to launch the respective folder.
  3. For step three you should absolutely take the USB cable of the smartphone so as to plug the handset to the laptop with it. Then take the mouse of your laptop and use it like this: double-click on the file you’ll see named runme.bat. This is going to result in the assembly of some prompts on the screen.
  4. After you see those instructions, you need to follow them accordingly and then wait for the root to end. Step number five will request this from you: restart the Optimus G F180K so that the procedure is complete and so that you can finally enjoy a rooted phone. From this moment on, this means that you will be able to get back the data that meant the world to you to the handset.
