    edit the file CurrentRoot.bat file and change the line
    adb shell touch /sdcard/G_security
    to
    adb shell “echo -en \x0d > /sdcard/G_security”
    and save the file and use it, then you can root a E975B version.

    I had to change the bat file because it couldn’t load adb.exe. thereafter i had to change it so it loaded adb.exe and busybox.exe as admin. that fixed it for me. hope this helps.

    Had the same error, changed properties on all .exe files to be executed as administrator and it seems to have worked for LG E976. A lot of confirmation prompts :P

    Hi Harcharan Singh

    Are there anything I should be concerned with? Will everything work normally if I don’t flash a custom rom?
    I heard something about 4G not working after root?

    Do you know if it will work on an Optimus G from Denmark?

    Thanx Nikolai

      Hi !

      Forgive me for not writing before, but I hadn’t noticed your comment. Sorry !

      If you just root everything will be alright. But if you flash a custom ROM you will be changing your system files, so after that something might not work.

      But by rooting nothing bad will happen ( at least it didn’t happen here )

      Hope u enjoy a rooted Optimus G ! ( and I think that it will work in Optimus G from Denmark but I haven’t tested on that, as this guide is for the Indian version )

      Cheers !
