How to Root LG Eve V10q

I just successfully rooted my LG Eve after doing the LG upgrade to v10q. If you are looking for a way to the root the V10q just like me, try this method, it won’t let you down.

How to Root LG Eve V10q steps:

  1. You need to use the superoneclickv1.5.5 not the most recent version.
  2. Then take the superuser.apk and su files as per the instructions from the previous poster making sure you get the donut.cupcake version and put them into the directory where you installed s1c replacing the files that were previously installed.
  3. There is no need to go into the hidden menus and enable root access as it is default in the 1.6 firmware. (and no longer an option)

If you can not find the old version of the superoneclick tool, thy this:

  1. Download the superoneclickv2.3.3: http://depositfiles.com/files/n0dcxce3t
  2. Replace the "su" file located in the downloaded folder with the one included in this link from system/bin folder http://forum.xda-developers.com/show…47&postcount=1 (the "cd" version).
  3. Just click root and everything works perfectly!

Nandroid Application for LG Eve / Etna GW620

Here is the modified Nandroid for the LG Eve / Etna GW620. It’s still VERY alpha, so use at your own risk, but it’s working for me. I did a full wipe and restore, and got my LG Eve / Etna GW620 back to working condition.  LG Android Phones

Disclaimer: This modified Nandroid is provided as is. I take absolutely no responsibility for anything that may break while it is in use. All I can say is that it works well for me. Your mileage may vary. LG-Eve/Etna/Intouch Max info

How to install the Nandroid on your LG Eve / Etna GW620 Steps:

Backup:  LG Cell Phone Software

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you unpacked this archive in to
  3. Type "fastboot boot everecovery01a.img" You may need to specify the full path to the android sdk.
    E.g. "/usr/android-sdk-linux/tools/fastboot boot everecovery01a.img"
  4. Wait while the recovery image boots on the device
  5. Type "./nandroideve01a.sh <backupname>" where <backupname> is the folder you want the img files to go to.
  6. Wait patiently, especially for the system and data partitions
  7. Study the output. Ensure there are no errors! I can’t stress this enough. If there are errors listed you probably do NOT have a valid backup.
  8. To verify your backup you can use the unyaffs command on the system.img and userdata.img and examine the results to ensure they match what’s on the device.

Restore prep:

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you unpacked this archive in to
  3. Type "fastboot boot everecovery01a.img" You may need to specify the full path to the android sdk.
    E.g. "/usr/android-sdk-linux/tools/fastboot boot everecovery01a.img"
  4. Wait while the recovery image boots up
  5. Type "adb shell" to get to the phone’s command prompt. Again, you may need to specify the full path to the adb command if you haven’t put the sdk in to your $PATH
  6. From the devices command prompt:
    (Note: These commands are destructive. Make SURE you have a complete and valid backup of your device before executing! We zero out the system and userdata partitions because simply restoring an image, even if you "fastboot erase" first, results in a corrupted filesystem)
  7. Type "cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd3" to erase the System partition
  8. Type "cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd4" to erase the userdata partition
  9. Type "exit" to get back to your Linux shell prompt
  10. Now you can do the restore!

Restore:

  1. Boot the device in to Fastboot mode.
    (e.g. power the device on and hit space within about 2-3 seconds)
  2. From a Linux root command prompt (#, not $) cd to the directory you specified as your <backupname> in backup step 5
  3. Type "fastboot flash boot boot.img" (specify sdk path as before if req’d)
  4. Type "fastboot flash system system.img"
  5. Type "fastboot flash userdata userdata.img"
  6. Done! Reboot, and you should have your system back!
