    2. Hi, I love E-615. I want to root this phone. I tried several ways including yours. Not successful. Please give us update software and method.

      1. Hello Myo Aung,

        I'm Extremely Very Sorry, but sadly there is no Rooting Guide for LG Optimus L5 E615. After Contacting the Person who Made the Rooting Guide for All LG L5 Models, he Confirmed that it is Not working with him too. So Sadly, I have to edit the full Post & you won't be able to Root your L5 E615.

        I Also Searched all the Top sites for Rooting Guide of L5 E615 but they also haven't got any Guide on rooting this Model. You have to Sadly Wait for some more Time to Root your LG Optimus L5 E615 Model.

        Thanks for Commenting & Pointing out our Mistake. Really Appreciate It.

    3. Bro,
      I have a e-612.I'm going to root it now. Will it make my device faster? Can I then install any themes, if so, how? Would really like your help. Thanks. :)

      Shrey Bahuguna.

      1. Hello Shrey,

        Thanks for your Comment. Ok, so here I go with my Suggestions..
        First of All Rooting does not make Device Work Smother or Faster, we Root to Get All the Advance Permission of the Phone, and after Rooting we can unlock our Device Processor, using many Apps. The One which is used for unlocking our Processor/CPU is the "SetCPU for Root Users" >

        Also, you can Install ROMS not THEMES.. Themes are Different & ROMS are Different. Themes Just Customize our Phone some Parts, but ROMS Customize the Full Mobile. Like for LG L3 E400 it has only 2.3.6 Android Version.. but after Rooting we can Install Official or Unofficial 4.0.4 Android Version ROM. So if Available you can change your 4.0.4 to 4.1 [ Only if there are ROMS Available ].. Not only that you can Customize the phone by Applying the same Android Version ROM with more Functionality.

        But as Much I know there are NO ROMS available for your ROM right Now.. but we Hope soon there will be One. Also You can ROOT it & have many Advantages of your Phone. GOOD LUCK for ROOTING.

        And yeah Don't forget On 28th "Our First Contest will Start, it will be for 3 Weeks & is only for Indian Viewers.. so Enjoy & Participate."

        Thanks for Commenting, hope to See your Entry in Contest [ for more info go here > ]

    6. hey hiii.... i have my lg optimus l5 e612...i did evrey step for rooting my phone..but i am facing some problem i.e. while running root (windows batch file) it is showing that "daemon is sarting succesfully " but after that m not getting any result...what should i do next...plzz rply m as u read my comment

    7. Hey, Sorry but this Patch does not work anymore. There is no Rooting method for LG L5 till now.
      Many where launched but failed after some time. So, you have to wait for some more Days untill and unless a Professional make the rooting guide.

    8. i m not able to check "Run this program as an administrator" in the properties of root.bat wt can i do??

    9. Hey Mayur, Sorry but the patch doesn't work anymore. We have to wait for developers to do some changes in code or to prepare a new one.

    10. Rooting will not make it faster. It allows you to add 3rd party software. It removes any restrictions on what you can add to your phone but it also allows you to mess around with the OS which could be disastrous.

    11. does it work with model E612F?. A Model here in Mexico.
