This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @bmdixon Please see the rooting tag-wiki, we do not close rooting questions towards that one since 1/2012 (oops!) – but instead permitting exactly one "how-do-I-root-my-X" question per device. The LG MS690 is not yet listed in our index, so I will add it now (you might wish to retract your close-vote ;) – Izzy Jul 23 '14 at 16:22
  • Isn't the MS690 the same as the "LG Optimus M MS690" android.stackexchange.com/questions/19036/…? From a quick search they appeared to be the same to me... Appologies if they're not the same. – bmdixon Jul 23 '14 at 16:24
  • towelroot by geohot claims to root pretty any version of Android. I didn't try it myself, but it's worth a try. Please report back when tried whether it was successful, so I make it an answer ;) – Izzy Jul 23 '14 at 16:26
  • @bmdixon Ooops? In that case you're correct, but rather should link to that question with your VTC :) Found no "real proof", but GSMArena lists the M+ as "MS-695", which is a good indicator. // EVA: Can you confirm your device being the "Optimus M"? – Izzy Jul 23 '14 at 16:34
  • I did wonder which one I should link to... Guess I picked the wrong one. – bmdixon Jul 23 '14 at 17:33

Have you tried using POOT? Download from Playstore and confirm if it supports your device. It works for most Android 2.x devices.
