Reply Ethos April 3rd, 2013 he is right ! i tried EE and nothing ! Reply Nikolai Braykov March 24th, 2013 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 Reply HARCHARAN SINGH March 29th, 2013 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 !
