How to Root LG Spectrum 2 4G VS930

LG Spectrum 2 4G VS930 comes after a successful first Spectrum model released one year ago. The specifications of this new smartphone have obviously been upgraded to satisfy new needs. The operating system, for one, is no longer Android Gingerbread, but Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

Then there is a 1.5 GHz Krait CPU to use for daily tasks which load faster than what the old processor of the Spectrum was capable of. But, because there was a need to experience a Spectrum 2 with more valuable additions and possibilities than the first one, a developer devised a way to have this handset rooted. We read all about his indications and created this tutorial that will help with the procedure.

What will happen after you root your VS930? The first thing: its warranty is going to go down the drain and you will have to unroot your Spectrum 2 to get it back. Another loss which will be experienced by the smartphone: its factory settings will no longer be present on it. Again, to have access to them again, you will have to use a guide on how to unroot the model. We have provided such a tool on DroidGator.com if you use our Search option.

Requirements

To assure that your smartphone does not end in a repair shop once we are done with the guide, you have to first consider these pre-requisites: download Root Package on your laptop (which has to feature Windows), charge the battery on the Spectrum 2 and make many backups of the data which is inside it.LG-Spectrum-2-4G-VS930

Since anticipation has probably been running high by now, we will show you the steps which will root your device.

Important instructions

  1. What you need to do for the first step is to place the downloaded Root Pack and extract its files on the laptop, then enable USB debugging on the Spectrum 2.
  2. Which task should be performed next needs to happen in the following way: go to the phone’s Menu, select Settings, go for Developer option and then tap on USB debugging to easily turn it on.
  3. Your moves for the third step should go like this: plug the phone to the comp by way of the former’s USB cord, then perform a double-click on RunMe.bat, a file that was extracted to your laptop’s desktop.
  4. After having performed the previous task, the ones you need to operate for step number four have to go in the following manner: choose the very first option in the tool; this is going to prepare your phone for the upcoming rooting process. Don’t expect it to last more than a few minutes.
  5. After the device has finished rooting, you will have to reboot it for the last step, the fifth. Now you have the freedom to see how your LG Spectrum 2 4G reacts in its rooted state. The first thing to do once the procedure is over is this: go and locate some root-only apps or custom ROMs and flash them on the VS930. After doing that, see what else your device has to show from this moment on.

    Seeing how this article has no publication date or author, I have no idea how old this piece is I am responding to, but uh, this does not work. I have the Spectrum 2 and Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and these steps do not root the phone. In terminal on my PC it just says Daemon started successfully, and stays that way for as long as I leave terminal open. Is there a next step? How long should this process take once I see this command in terminal? Have you even done this to a VS930 or did you simply copy/paste this crap from one of the other hundred sites that also claim this works. Please advise.

    I ran this with success, but I still do not have root access. What is the purpose of doing this? I have an LG Spectrum 2 (VS930) with Jelly Bean 4.1.2. Again, I followed these steps perfectly and the program ran successfully, rebooted my phone, etc, but still do not have root access. Please advise.

      Are you sure you have no root access? Have you tried to flash on it the latest version of SuperSu app? Which error do you receive?

      Are you able to remove any preinstalled app (you can use Moborobo for this action)?

      • Drew Everett

        I have not tried to flash anything, I am not able to uninstall any preinstalled apps (using Root App Delete as I could not find motorobo in the play store). Every root checker I have used also says I do not have root access. Root App Delete confirms this as well. Please advise.

          This is the moborobo tool: http://www.moborobo.com/products/moborobo.html

          I have no idea why the guide is not working with your phone. Maybe you should try other methods, like this one for example: http://www.droidgator.com/guide-root-almost-any-android-device-unlock-root-method/

          • Drew Everett

            I tried that as well with no luck, before finding your thread here. I finally found success with Root App Delete. The app is in the play store, and I grabbed it to test my root access again after seeing your initial reply. Within the app was a set of instructions I had not seen before. Required a PC and a quick download. Then, it was 1-click and done. I have now deleted all my preinstalls and some dorky VZW/LG garbage, and am living happily ever after 🙂

            I do want to say thank you for your quick and helpful follow ups, rare these days in my experience. You maintain a good page here sir!
