Re: How to root LG Spectrum

Well guess I can help you just download this files for
Windows
Linux / MAC OS X

Now do as the following
  1. Reboot the device
  2. Put it in the USB debugging mode
  3. Now connect the handset to the PC
  4. Now extract the file on the computer
  5. Run the "run.bat" in case of windows and run.sh for the Linux / MAC OS X

That it now your LG Spectrum is rooted

Enjoy

  1. Don?t forget to copy your all Data. If you've got synced the device with a Google account, then the contacts, calendar, Gmail, and choose alternative Google-related all Data won't be lost and can return when future sync. However, you ought to backup something you wish to stay that's not stored on the SD card:
    • All the SMS/MMS messages,
    • Every Call Log,
    • All the web Bookmarks,
    • Applications ( and for that use Titanium Backup or the Astro File Manager)
    • Any application Data not on the SD card.
  2. It would even be the great thing to backup everything stored on the SD card within the rare case the SD card should be formatted to resolve any major issues.
  3. The applications that is Free which can help with backing up your all Data.
    • My Backup Root
    • SMS Backup and Restore

Re: How to root LG Spectrum

Guys this really bad idea , I don?t understand why you guys need to root your phone, rooting is the bad idea. the fact that your phone warranty will be annulled. more often than not every manufacturers offer a service contract of one year for the phone and they do not permit one to root the device as well as access system files. nevertheless, Android is an open source OS thus for this reason there present rooting! as well, you can unroot LG Spectrum afterward in case you need to take advantage of your device?s warranty.

Re: How to root LG Spectrum

Rooting has quite plenty of benefits. a couple of prime benefits of rooting are
  1. Rooting allows you to customize your phone in an exceedingly higher method.
  2. Install Custom ROMs to enhance the performance.
  3. take away System apps that you are do not want and hence free area
  4. Convert the file system of current RFS to the faster ext4 file formats
  5. Convert Downloaded apps to system App
