LGUP Folder:


  1. I am unable to receive sms/mms after this root. Have contacted Verizon support who verified correct provisioning, but still no sms/mms.

  2. When I run  LGUP it shows the phonePort COM5Version: VS99025AProgress: STANDBY but there is nothing in the bottom where the BIN would be.  Just shows File Type and File Path but blank underneath.  No option to browse for the TOT file.  Any ideas? Store Version 1.14 DLL Version

  3. Good video on ROOT, thanks bro. Hardest part is putting the file in the proper folder as some do not have x86 so good for folks to see it in the video, great vid! Will we ever get custom ROMS, how do we upgrade to Marshmallow after rooted? OK, after I do this, how do I get it to update to 6.0 or are there any roms, doubt as not even a TWRP [sic] yet, right? I have the damn Verizon white/gold and its great BUT I am on Cricket so just realized after bought it of Craigslist that I can NOT get LTE. Somebody said with root you can force LTE? He did not say specifies or even about the LG V 10, Anybody know i this is true. Shit, I was having trouble even sending MMS, Pix over the mobile. Now, Do I stay with my unlocked Verizon V10 like it is and find the solutions I need as in LTE as well as send and receive MMS over mobile with an update t at least the regular 6.0 they offered that does not come over my phone as an update, I guess because it was unlocked prior? Or, do I swap to Verizon. I highly doubt I will swap to Verizon and LOVE this phone. HMM. Wish I had somebody to swap an unlocked t mobile variant for my unlocked Verizon as be much easier however there may be an answer for mine, just not sure. I am sure there are answers to some but probably not all my question, hell I can even live with the 3G – H+ whatever it is, I did not even notice a difference but the other issues are BIG to me. Yes, I wish I was getting LTE as paying for it but what can you do, I dunno what that guy is talking about on XDA to force LTE when rooted if the bands are not there which I thought was thee issue. I have my LG V10 set up perfect as took hours no have to to a fresh reboot and lose it all right now because something is up with no mms/pic/voice in the messenger+ app. I even tried to add in crickets APN. Maybe I did it wrong. Grrrr Verizon! This is why I am on Cricket!

  4. "Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device" after following all the steps and downloading root checker.. what do i do
