How to root the LG Optimus Fuel!

How to root the LG Optimus Fuel!

1. The first thing you need to do is install an app called towelroot. On your phone, visit the website I linked (click on towelroot in the last sentence) and click the lambda (λ). It will download a file called tr.apk. Before you can install this app, you must go into Settings, Security, and tick the "Unknown sources" box. Then install this app, ignore security prompts, (they're their for obvious reasons), and move on to step 2.

2. You should see a new icon in your launcher called towelroot, with the familiar lambda from the website. Open that app. Now tap "welcome to towelroot v3" 3 times. A text field should have opened, saying "1337 0 1 0 4 0". Change this to "1337 0 0 0 4 0".

3. Press "make it ra1n".

4. Download SuperSU from the Play Store. If you cannot use the Play Store, it is also available on APKMirror.

5. Open SuperSU. It should ask you to update binaries. You should, and when it is finished it should ask you to reboot. Press reboot, then when your phone boots back up move on to step 6.

6. This step is optional, but I recommend it. Download Root Checker from the Play Store. If you cannot use the Play Store, it is also available on APKMirror. Open this app, and press "Verify Root". A dialog should pop up asking you if you would like to grant root access to Root Checker. Press grant. Root Checker should then say "Congratulations! Root access is properly installed on this device!". If it doesn't, you did something wrong, and you are not rooted.

Thank you for reading my tutorial! I hope it helped you out. I would like to give some credit to user toxinbum on Android Area 51 (a forum, I know I haven't heard of it either until now :D) for this post, which is where I got my steps 1 through 3 from (which I made easier to understand, and I essentially combined some of his steps).

If you need help with anything just leave a comment. I'll reply as soon as I can.
