The root process need some update. in my country (brazil) the new firmware(V10D) cannot be rooted, but V10C can. it's say read-only file system,etc

FYI, V10K (Europe Open) is the latest version I've been able to root. V10N was a no go (for me at least). If anyone had more success, please post.

I am working on testing a root exploit for the v11e (only thing I haven't tried is the linux side of the script) ... I'm guessing it might work for v10N, will release it soon and you can check. If you want a copy of what I've made so far I can work on zipping it up and getting you a test copy.

Sparhawk, did you try an older version of superoneclick? Supposedly the "rageagainstcache" mode works on some e400 roms that the script doesn't. I haven't had the time to test it myself though, maybe over the Xmas holidays.

in this germen board a user find a trick to root v10k and higher, everytime!

my bad translation ;P :

  1. After KDZ-Flash delete all LG-Driver

  2. Reinstall LG USB-Driver

  3. Activate USB Debbuging

  4. Use LG_Spectrum_and_E400_Root-Account-Activation_Windows
    ( Funny, it was the only one that works )

  5. Finish rooting

thanks to MerekFynn!!
