  1. Hallo,
    please, I need an advice; how do I activate Debugging through USB, if there is no way to enable it in the system settings? I see the item, but it has a grey color of font and doesn´t react on checking it. I have a MacAfee security installed but I suppose it´s not the cause. Thanks!

  2. When I restores my LG should I do the steps to arrive at the Welcome screen and then restore it and do nothing? thank you

  3. Hey Ladek,
    To enable Android Debug Bridge over USB you must first disconnect your USB cable from your phone!
    Hope I Helped!

  4. Vroot, now called Iroot is UNNABLE to root LG E460 anymore. Plus, it install lots of sh*tty app on your phone. AVOID.
