Root your T-mobile G2x

The T-mobile G2x is now available in stores as of today. Some people have already received it if ordered via online sales from a few days back. This thing is a pure beast of a phone, let’s root it.

I’m usually not too fond of one click root methods, but this really is the easiest way to do it on this brand new handset.

This assumes you have ADB already installed and working. The download links will require you to be a registered user on this site.

  1. Download and install the LG drivers. LG has released the G2x drivers over at their site. Download and install those instead.
  2. Enable USB debugging under Settings-Applications-Development on your G2x.
  3. Download and run Super One Click (v1.8).
  4. Hit the Root button and off you go.
