There are many perks to rooting the LG G Stylo from Cricket, like the dexterity to install the ROM Toolbox. There are root apps and then there are essential root apps. The ROM Toolbox is one of those applications you need to have in the essential list when your shopping for new apps to install on your device. There are not a great deal of one-in-one type solutions for rooted users that still work, but the ROM toolbox is still very much a toolbox of all sorts that is absurdly useful.
The ROM Toolbox for your LG G Stylo is like what a tool belt is for a handyman. With it, we can uninstall system apps (remove bloatware), use the handy built-in file browser with root access, take full backups with the NANDroid feature we usually find within the confines of a custom recovery environment, plus it even comes with its own font installer — and who doesn’t have the urge to play with fonts? You know you do. Fonts are one of the main ways to change the design elements on your page. By changing the font alone, you can give your LG G Stylo a touch of elegance with new fonts.
- The following guide is only intended for the Cricket version of the LG G Stylo. Those of you who are LG G Stylo owners, but not with the Cricket smartphone carrier network should look for another guide. Following this guide will probably brick your device.

HOW TO ROOT CRICKET LG G STYLO H634
- Download the KingRoot universal one click rooting application for your G Style form here.
- Install the KingRoot APK like you would any other APK file, either from your web browser app or from the SD card. You will want a File Manager if you are choosing the SD card method.
- Once done correctly, your KingRoot application will be showing with your other apps. Tap and open your app.
- Tap on the large button from the main page that suggest rooting your device — this text can change depending on the version of your app. You won’t miss it!
- Wait for the progress bar to reach 1005 and for the device’s display to come up with a success message issued by the KingRoot application.
- Exit the app and reboot your LG G Stylo smartphone before you start using your rooted device.
Now you can open the Google Play Store and start installing your apps that require the root access to run like the ROM Toobox we spoke of earlier. Some prefer to get things started with the root checker application just to check the device actually is rooted. You can install the basic version of the root checker app for free and then open it from your app drawer. Agree to grant the SuperUser access and you’re away!
