Prerequisites To Root LG Optimus F6 Smartphone:

1) It is safe to take a full backup of personal data in your LG F6 smartphone before rooting it. Although the tutorial I have written here will be safe and it involves no data-loss process, it would be better to have a backup. So take it using LG PC suite or appropriate apps.

2) Your LG Optimus F6 will get bricked only if any of the following two things happen during the rooting process: 1) The antivirus app you are using in your smartphone pops up during the rooting process and cause trouble, and 2) Your phone gets switched off due to lack of battery. So avoid these two things at all cost.

3) You have to enable “USB Debugging Mode” for rooting your device. You can do this by visiting the settings option in your phone, and then developer option and then ticking the box of USB debugging options.

4) Download LG F6 USB Driver and install it on your computer.

Once you have taken care of all these prerequisites, you are good to go to the next part of the tutorial.

  1. Hi, I have a LG Optimus F6 but unfortunately I have no pc. I have tried using the method but for some reason or other my phone keeps telling me that “download failed!” I did the debugging option in settings as well. Any suggestions? Is it possible to even root my phone without using a pc? Also, one last question. ..if a phone has slight water damage do you think that can screw up its capabilities to getting rooted? Thank you so so much! Hope to hear back from you soon.

  2. Oh! I forgot to ask you about the apps. if i am successful at rooting this crap, do you know if I’ll still have t pay for apps on Google play? I heard you dont. Just curious…. thanks again.

  3. Hi Jena,

    After rooting your device, if you try to install apps from Google play store, then you will have to pay. But if you find and use the .apk files from other sources, then you don’t have to pay.

  4. Have you enable “Installation of apps from Unknown sources”? If yes, are you using any antivirus apps? If yes is your answer again, then deactivate them and try again.
