How to Root T-Mobile LG Leon LTE

 
 LG Leon is a mid-range phone with some fine specifications. The best part about LG Leon is that it comes with Android Lollipop firmware out of the box. This device has been launched a few months ago and its T-Mobile variant has received the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware. T-Mobile has pushed quiet a few updates to its firmware lately, taking it to version H34510e. However, if you are looking for root access on the latest firmware, then it is possible only by downgrading to the firmware version H34510d and then root it usually with a rooting application like Kingroot.

So if you have updated your phone’s software, then any of the rooting methods won’t work at this moment including the 1-click root scripts, root APKs and others. Although we are downgrading to the previous firmware, it is still based on the Lollipop 5.1.1 Android version. To downgrade the firmware, you need to go through the usual KDZ installation process for LG devices. This tutorial will guide you through the procedure and help you successfully get root access on your T-Mobile LG Leon LTE 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware.

Prerequisites:

  • Download LG Firmware version H34510d from the download section for your T-Mobile LG Leon.
  • Install the LG Flash Tool 2014(extract files if compressed) on your PC. This tool is required in order to flash the KDZ file onto your device.
  • Visual C++ Runtime Library is required in order to run LG Flash Tool 2014. If you have any problems installing or running the Flash Tool then install the libraries on your Windows PC. Click here.
  • Make sure you have the latest LG drivers installed on your PC. Get it from the download section.
  • Enable USB Debugging.

How To Downgrade Moto X 2013 from Android 5.1 Lollipop to KitKat

 
Updates are great; unless they come with bugs, or unnecessary apps, or they start taking a toll on your device. What to do in such a case? If you are a Moto X 2013 user, this tutorial can guide you to downgrade from Android 5.1 to Android 4.4.4 [and lower]. The process is quite simple and quick. You will be able to start using the device in 12-15 minutes. All you need are the required files and basic understanding of fastboot, command prompt & bootloader. Also make sure you read this tutorial carefully [a couple of times] before you proceed.

Disclaimer: We have tested this procedure across different users multiple times, but there is still a level of risk involved. Such procedures can potentially brick your device and render it useless. We do not undertake any responsibility for damage to data or device.
Performing a system downgrade will also void your warranty and it shall not be supported by the manufacturer or service provider.
Towards our effort of being a responsible website, we strive to mention all precautions & notes in our guides.  We also undergo several tests on our own devices to ensure that any procedure we post is authentic & accurate. The same has been tested for this tutorial more than a dozen times on different units of the device.

Eligibility, requirements & steps

  • Unlocked bootloader

    [Motorola & their default bootloader does NOT support downgrade & will create errors during Fastboot mode].
    Note: Unlocking your bootloader will erase all data on your device, make sure you backup before attempting. This tutorial is not for unlocking bootloader. If you haven’t done it already, look up the official Motorola procedure here.
    1. Make sure you have Android SDK installed. If not download here.
    2. Make sure you have the latest Motorola USB drivers installed. If not, download here.
    3. Head over to this link by Motorola to check whether your device can be unlocked and get an unlock key. Follow the step by step procedure [clear and short].
      Note: If you are unable to unlock your bootloader, you CANNOT downgrade.
  • Files:

    For this tutorial we chose to downgrade from 5.1 to 4.4.4 since this is the safest and generally common downgrade option. Please follow all the steps without skipping.
    1. Signed image of Android 4.4.4 for Moto X 2013: You can download the image on these links: 1 or 2 or 3 or 4. Please note we have used the device model XT1052 for this tutorial. If you have a different device, please download its correct image. You can check your device model in Settings > About phone. Let us know if you are unable to find the correct image.
    2. Motorola Device drivers: Download link above and here
    3. Motorola Android tools package: Download link here.
  • Flashing your device:

    1. Make sure your device is charged to at least 35%.
    2. Extract the archive with the signed images somewhere (we used C:\Temp )
    3. Extract the Motorola Android tools archive in the same directory (you should now have boot.img, recovery.img, system.img, and mfastboot in the same directory).
    4. Reboot your device in Fastboot mode (Power off your device, then hold Volume down & press Power button; and release)
      THE NEXT STEPS WILL DELETE USER FILES EVEN IF YOUR BOOTLOADER IS ALREADY UNLOCKED
    5. Open command prompt and navigate to
      C:\Temp
      or the folder you chose for all files extracted. You may also open this folder in Explorer and open Command prompt directly by pressing Shift + Right Click and choose Open command window here.Now type in & execute [Press Enter] the following commands in this sequence one by one.
      mfastboot erase cache
      mfastboot erase userdata
      mfastboot flash boot boot.img
      mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img
      mfastboot flash system system.img
      mfastboot erase userdata
      mfastboot reboot
Do not skip the erase userdata code; you will end up with a soft bricked device.

Result:

You have successfully downgraded your device to Android 4.4.4. It might take a while for the first boot since the device shall create dalvik cache and other such stuff, but it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.
At start-up on some point the device shall prompt you to agree  to downgrade the Motorola services agreement, on accepting it shall reboot,  and confirm that downgrade was successful. We have tried it over a dozen times.
Also we’ll try to answer queries if you face certain issues (frankly, there shouldn’t be any if you ‘followed’ this guide).
Cheers!!

Now that you are on Marshmallow, you can use apps like SuperSU or Superuser to enhance your experience.

If you are still interested, make sure you read our article about benefits and risks of rooting.

The LG’s customized user interface is not appreciated by many users and it may not appeal to you as well. Moreover, there is a ton of bloatware added by both LG and your carrier(Verizon in this case).
To get rid of this annoying bloatware you can root your device and remove some unnecessary applications that are otherwise not removable. Rooting also gives you better control over your Android device. You may read the article linked below to get to know more about benefits of rooting and the risks involved with it.
Thanks to XDA developer tungkick, now Verizon users can also enjoy root on their Lg V10. Just follow the guide given below to get root access on your device.
Read – Rooting Android: Why you Should and Why not
Warning: Rooting your Android device will void your manufacturer warranty, so proceed at your own risk. Also taking backup of your data before proceeding with the guide is recommended.

Things You Will Need

  • Lg V10 (VS990) and a PC
  • VS990 Root.zip| Link
The above is a link to the zip file that contains all the files you will need in the following guide.

Steps To Follow

Step 1. Download the VS990 Root.zip file from the link given above and extract the file using any unzipping tool you have on your PC.
Step 2. You will find LG drivers on extracting the zip file in above step. Install on them on your PC, just like any other software.
Step 3. Now extract the .rar file again using any file unzipping tool you have on your PC. On extracting the .rar file you will get the .tot file needed for rooting your LG V10.
Step 4. Now we will install LGUP, a software used to install firmware on your Lg V10. To do so, extract the lgupnew.zip.This will give you two files LGUP_Store_Frame_Ver_1_14_3.msi and LGUP_8994_DLL_Ver_0_0_1_18.msi. 
Step 5. Run  LGUP_Store_Frame_Ver_1_14_3.msi file first and then run LGUP_8994_DLL_Ver_0_0_1_18.msi. This will install the LGUP software on your PC.
Step 6. Now you will have to copy the “common” folder that should be present in the zip file you extracted in Step 1 and move it to this location “C:\Program Files (x86)\LG Electronics\LGUP\model”.
Step 7. Now move to your phone and enable USB Debugging. To do so first enable Developer Options by going into Settings> About Phone and then tapping Build Number multiple times. Once your phone shows a toast message that “You are now a Developer!” you have successfully enabled Developer Options.
Step 8. Now open the Developer Options and enable the option that says USB Debugging. Now plug in your phone to your PC using a USB cable.
Step 9. Run the LGUP software using Start menu of your Windows.
Step 10. Select your phone. Then select UPGRADE option otherwise, your data would be wiped.  For the “BIN File” select the “rootedsystemvs.tot” file you extracted in step 3. Finally, click Start.
Step 11. Reboot your device and update the SuperSU application and then reboot your device again.
Congrats! you have successfully achieved root access on your Verizon Lg V10. You may confirm the root access using the root checker application linked below.

How to Unlock Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Bootloader

 
Carrier locked devices are very tough shells to crack and thus many carrier locked devices won’t have a bootloader unlock method. The Verizon Galaxy Note 4 also comes under the same category where the bootloader was not unlockable. Lucky for Verizon Galaxy Note 4 users, the bootloader unlock method is now available for the device. So, you can now install and use custom recoveries like TWRP and use it to flash awesome custom ROMs and mods. The credit goes to ryanbg of XDA for sharing this useful method

Many users in the XDA developer forum have confirmed the exploit working and they were able to unlock the bootloader. The exploit is working on Verizon Note 4 running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and a permanent root and TWRP is also achieved. Before proceeding with the tutorial, you need to have root permissions on your device to install some scripts to unlock the bootloader. You can easily root your device by using our tutorial from here or you can simply use Kingroot 4.8.5 to gain temporary root access.
You also need an SDcard in your device which will be formatted during the process, so make sure you don’t have any important data on the  SDcard. It’s better to take a full backup of the SDcard to prevent any data loss. Also, you must disable the reactivation lock to avoid any issues. And finally, your device CID should start with 15, else the process won’t work. You can check using the eMMC app. If you’re all set, let’s start with the tutorial.

Prerequisites
