I upgraded my LG O2X to stock ICS. How can I root the device? Superoneclick is not working for the same.

If you've got a computer with Windows running on it, you might want to give the All-in-One Toolkit a try. According to the XDA-Thread linked, you can download it from here or here. Once installed and started, it gives you a simple interface to select actions from, including

  • rooting the device
  • install a custom Recovery
  • backup/restore partitions
  • flash ROMs and bootloader

and more. If I read the description correctly, the toolkit should work for Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwhich.

I had a phone Qmobile Noir A8; well I still I have it, but got a new one too. That phone was ICS too.

I tried many things but was not able to root it; including and specially Superoneclick. Then I found Bin4ry rooting software, its just a single click app. But it would require you to have a PC connected to the phone as its a command prompt type software, you will press a button (say 1, 2, or 3 and even x to unroot) to make the process happen.

It was fast, and as my phone had ICS, I am sure that would work for your phone too. All you need to do is to follow the steps provided by the developer of the software, donot try to be over smart while rooting or you might get into trouble!

Now I have 4.2.2 :D Which might not be and surely isn't the concern so skip the thing.

You should try out its latest version.

Good luck, Cheers!
