How to Root LG Intuition Steps:

Files needed:

Once you have those, you’re only a few simple commands away.

  • adb push su /data/local/tmp/su
  • adb push lgroot.sh /data/local/tmp/lgroot.sh
  • adb shell
  • $ chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/lgroot.sh
  • $ rm /data/vpnch/vpnc_starter_lock
  • $ ln -s /data/local.prop /data/vpnch/vpnc_starter_lock
  • $ exit
  • adb reboot

You may have to unplug/replug your LG Intuition to get some computers to pick it up again after this reboot.

  • adb wait-for-device shell
  • $ echo ‘ro.kernel.qemu=1′ > /data/local.prop
  • $ exit

Here is the important part, you will have to execute the next to commands one after the other. We want the second command to be fired off as soon as adbD comes up, before it drops root privileges. This may take some a few minutes, and after the second command is complete you may have to unplug/replug you LG Intuition to get your computer to see it again.

  • adb reboot
  • adb wait-for-device /data/local/tmp/lgroot.sh

(Here is where you may have to unplug/replug, but only after the second command has ran).

adb wait-for-device shell

  • $ su
  • # rm /data/local.prop
  • # rm /data/vpnch/vpnc_starter_lock
  • # reboot

Once the LG Intuition rebooted, install Superuser from the market and enjoy.
