  1. Thank you for the step by step,it was very helpful!!
    My only question is,after I started the download tool,it never said finish nor did the phone reboot?
    Did I miss something or was it really that easy?

    • You might want to manually reboot your phone after running the run.bat file. If it is stuck at something like “waiting for device” I would try a manual reboot of the phone. Leave it connected to the pc and once it reboots the pc app should detect it and continue the root. It will reboot maybe 2-3 times and at the end it will say it is finished and to press a key to exit.

  2. When will the unrooting procedure for the LG Lucid be available? I just wonder because it makes it feel safer to do.
