    LG 800G Anyone know how to root this thing?

    The 800G is a fine machine but it is loaded with junk that I would like to get rid of. I am used to buying computer loaded with crapware and discarding all the junk. Seems to me that the 800G is a prime candidate for that.

    How do I do it?

    You can't "root" a phone like that because it has a proprietary OS. It's not like Android.

    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

    Primary: iPhone 6 64GB, Lumia 635, & LG L90: 5 lines, 1x $15 5GB data, 2x $5 Android web, 1x $2.99 T-Zones, corp discount + $10/mo loyalty discount = $93/mo tax inclusive
    Secondary: iPhone 4S & Optimus Dynamic II: TracFone (Verizon); LG Mach: RingPlus (Sprint)

    Only reason you can "root" an Android phone is some folks figured out how - maybe the folks that wrote Android, I don't know.

    Some smart folks can figure out how to "root" this proprietary OS - If they want to devote the time, etc. Any code can be cracked but not necessarily by me

    Another reason one can "root" an Android phone is because the phone is designed in such way that the firmware on the phone can be user upgradable. With the cost target the TF suppliers have to work with, user upgradable firmware are not likely to be designed in. Furthermore, TF most likely demanded such capability not built into any of their phones.
