How to Root LG Optimus L4 II E440

Root access is something your LG Optimus L4 II E440 cannot function well without. As such, we have a post that details the way a rooting happens.

When you have this kind of phone launched in 2013, you’ll feel the need to feature great stuff on it. Not only that, but you’ll want to improve it, too. If that’s on your agenda, SRSRoot is what you’ve been looking for. This app doesn’t come with a price. After it’s part of your handset, this freeware will start turning the phone into a better one.

The benefits of this procedure

A 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU is joined by an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS. There’s no risk of using the SRSRoot with these specs. In fact, the processor will be more powerful; and the operating system will be safe from deletion. To work right, the app has to be paired with a Build ID; the latter can be whichever version you want it to be. If you’re unsure which one to opt for: JZO54K is what we used on your LG E440.LG-Optimus-L4-II-E440

The SRSR is powered by an SRS Server. Root-only apps, custom ROMs and battery options are all delivered by the freeware. Superuser and admin permission show up, too. As do these: new features and ways to customize the handset.

As soon as your LG Optimus L4 II E440 has root access, the warranty won’t be kept on it. Safely retrieve it with a guide  compatible with your smartphone.

The phone will go through a damaged system partition after an upgrade is done to it. Root access cannot be kept, either, so it’ll be revoked. All’s good when it comes to the device’s important data and its internal / external SD. Neither of them gets affected.


This is where you learn what pre-requisites to follow before the rooting:

  • the smartphone’s security programs should experience a deactivation;
  • once the notebook opens this site on its browser, you have to find those USB drivers that are only available with your handset;
  • they must then be downloaded and flashed on the same product;
  • turn on USB Debugging (which is an option on the smartphone);
  • your phone’s major data has to be saved via backups;
  • a full NANDroid backup is highly recommended when rooting a device;
  • what you also need is a notebook which runs Windows;
  • make sure you have a LG Optimus L4 II whose battery is fully charged.
  • the security programs featured on the notebook should be turned off, too.

Step by step instructions

You won’t have to wait long till the phone is rooted. All we ask of you is to check out the various steps described in the upcoming paragraphs.

  1. The first thing we need you to do: download, on the notebook, the popular SRSRoot freeware. There is a certain place your notebook must be on for this part. Here is the necessary link. Click on it, then do the same on the page’s download button.
  2. After successfully ending the download phase, the SRSRoot app must be launched on the notebook; before that, though, install the freeware on it.
  3. Then do this: look for Settings on your handset and tap it. It is now the turn of this option to be enabled: Unknown Sources. Its place is under the option called Settings.
  4. The USB Debugging is another important option to be enabled. But you already know this one; you were asked to tap it above. Activate the option as such; if you’ve done it already, you have to plug the handset to your notebook. Use the smartphone’s USB cord for this phase.
  5. Only a couple of minutes will pass before the connection is achieved. Best enable this to start the rooting: Root Device (All Methods). All you should do now is simply wait until the end of the rooting is signaled.
  6. You’ll know about this in no more than 15 minutes. If the procedure takes a longer period of time, repeat our steps from just now. You can do the following next: make it so, that your handset restarts easily.
  7. To perform such a thing, your phone has an option called Reboot System Now. If you enable it, you’ll have no problems rebooting the LG Optimus L4 II E440. Once you have completed the previous step, you can rest assured that the device is finally holding root access!

If you feel like it, you should open the new stuff on your smartphone. That is how you get in touch with everything new on it. If you suddenly decide to return the handset to how it used to be, you’ll get precious help from the SRSRoot app.
