LG Optimus Net P690 is a strong competitor of LG Optimus One P500 being of almost the same price though the LG Optimus Net is more popular. Since it runs on Android OS, you have an opportunity to exploit a lot from the phone which LG might not let you do. Rooting lets you access the root files of your Android OS. In this tutorial we will tell you how to root LG Optimus Net P690 using a very popular program called Superoneclick. Superoneclick is a one-click rooting program for many Android phones but it can not be used as such with LG Optimus Net and hence you will have to follow the steps listed below to root your LG Optimus Net. After you root your phone, you can remove system apps like LG TV or any other apps which you do not need. You can also make your battery long last using an app called Juice defender and much more can be done after you root your phone.
- Before you root any device, it is always advisable to take a back up of your device’s data. Backing up your contacts is easy and you can back up all your contacts to your device’s SD Card.
- To back up your applications, I recommend you to use ASTRO File Manager which also allows cloud storage.
- Make sure your device’s battery life has a minimum of 60% charge.
- Enable USB Debugging. To do this, go to Settings>Applications>Development and make sure USB Debugging is checked.
