- You must use this guide with the LG L60 variant only. You can check yours matches up with the same by tapping on the Menu > Settings > About Device and checking that it says the L60 model number.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
- Make sure you have the L60’s Unknown Sources option turned on from the settings before you start with the guide. You can find out where that option on your LG device is by tapping on the Menu > Settings > Security > Unknown Sources and then navigating back out where you came. The options you adjust in the Security menu will be remembered by your operating system once you leave.
HOW TO ROOT LG L60
- Download the latest version of the Framaroot app by hitting up its official thread left by the developer over at XDA Developers from this link.
- Connect the LG L60 to the computer with the USB cable that it came without of the box.
- Copy the Framaroot APK file over to the root of the SD card internal storage.
- Unplug your L60 device from the computer once you have it on the SD card.
- Open one of your File Managers and install the Framaroot APK so it turns into app form and is available from your app drawer.
- Tap and open the Framaroot app.
- Tap on the SuperSU option from the drop-down menu.
- Click on this link from your computer and check the exploit name for your device — it will be under a character name from Lord Of The Rings.
- That rooting exploit — Sam, Frodo or the Aragorn exploit — will now root your device. Do not touch any buttons until it completes.
- Exit the application and reboot the LG L60 smartphone manually once your exploit is complete.
Now you can open the Google Play Store app and start installing your new apps. Furthermore, the Framaroot rooting method allows you to install a custom recovery over the top if you want to think about checking out some of the best custom ROMs for your LG L60 device. Likewise, you can always enter the custom recovery mode to start taking your NANDroid Backups.
