LG LM-X212TA Root


Download This First : https://mega.nz/#!nspCHIRL!hxu9QMhLO...4ry9MM4Bqwe87M email: for password : [email protected]
1. On your phone, go to Settings->General->About Phone->Software Info. Click on Build Number 7 times. You have now enabled Developer Options

2. On your phone, go to Settings->Developer Options and Turn ON both OEM Unlock and USB debugging. Turn OFF Automatic System Updates. Click on Select USB Configuration and select MTP (Media Transfer Protocol)

3. Connect your phone to your PC using the USB cable.

4. On your PC, open a command prompt or power shell session in the folder where your adb and fastboot executables reside.

5. In your command prompt or power shell session, type"
adb devices
You should see:
List of devices attached
<SerialNumofPhone> device
6. Now type:
adb reboot bootloader
7. You should see some text in very small letters on your phone. You are now in bootloader or fastboot mode.
Type the following in the command prompt or power shell session:
fastboot devices
You should see:
<SerialNumofPhone> fastboot
8. Type this:
fastboot flashing unlock
fastboot will say this will wipe your data. Tell it to continue.
Now we need to erase the userdata and cache partitions to prevent fastboot from encrypting them. Type:
fastboot erase userdata
You should see:
******** Did you mean to fastboot format this ext4 partition?
erasing 'userdata'...
OKAY [ 0.031s]
finished. total time: 0.031s
Now type:
fastboot erase cache
You should see:
******** Did you mean to fastboot format this ext4 partition?
erasing 'cache'...
OKAY [ 0.031s]
finished. total time: 0.031s
9. Now that you are unlocked, flash the rooted boot image. Depending on the file you downloaded above, type: LMX212TA.img

You should see:
target reported max download size of 262144000 bytes
sending 'boot' (15210 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.585s]
writing 'boot'...
OKAY [ 0.200s]
finished. total time: 0.790s

10.Now flash TWRP. Type:
fastboot flash recovery recoveryLMX212TA.img
You should see:
target reported max download size of 262144000 bytes
sending 'recovery' (17010 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.585s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 0.200s]
finished. total time: 0.790s

11. Now reboot back to Android. Type:
fastboot reboot
Note: Your bootup screen will now look like this:



This message does not indicate a problem. This is the normal bootup screen of the Aristo 2, once the bootloader is unlocked. DO NOT lock the bootloader or your phone will then refuse to boot.
Note: Since we had to wipe userdata, Android will boot up with the setup wizard, just like the first time the phone was booted.

12. Once you get past the setup wizard, repeat steps 1 and 2, as most of our settings have been reset back to defaults. After completing steps 1 and 2, return to step 16.

13. Download the following file and copy it to your phone's Download folder:
Magisk-v17.1.zip --> Magisk 17.1 installation .zip and UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.79
14. On your PC, go to your command prompt or power shell and type:
adb reboot recovery
Your phone will now boot into TWRP for the first time.

15. On your phone, Swipe to allow modifications.

16. Now select INSTALL, then browse into the Download folder and select your Magisk install .zip.
Swipe to confirm flasha. TWRP will install Magisk on your system.

17. Now, select Reboot System.
Your phone will boot back into Android. Your phone should now be rooted, unencrypted and have Magisk and TWRP installed.

I believe the safest method is to convert the X212TA in X210MA with the correct firmware (Depends of your security update).

And then try to root with the X210MA method.
