LG Esteem users will be pleased to know that all-in-one root and custom recovery is now available for their 4G LTE smartphone. The AIO work was done by AndroidForums.com ROM developer PlayfulGod, though credit should go to Koush and RaidZero for their recoveries as well as zergrush for their root method.
If you were holding off on rooting the LG Esteem in hopes that a simpler and less involved method would come around then this most certainly would apply to you.
Both versions (one for Koush’s recovery and one for RaidZero’s) can be used on Windows and Linux so Mac users may have to borrow someone else’s PC for a sec to apply it. Be sure to read ALL instructions carefully before proceeding and remember that whatever you do to your device is your own responsibility. Head to the Androidforums.com thread here to get started.
