    the process is stuck at step 7, it says “wait for device” but doesnt do anything after. Anyone know how to fix it?

    • Mahesh Makvana says:

      Have you installed appropriate drivers installed on your PC? It’s stuck there probably because you don’t have proper drivers on your PC.

      Just head over to your manufacturer’s website and download the drivers for your device.

    I am trying to use this on my LG Optimus 4G LTE (Canadian version of the P930). I have ICS installed version 4.0.4 software version P930_v20f, using Windows 7 64bit. I did as the instructions said and the program “Stops Responding” on step 5. Can someone please post an update?

    • Mahesh Makvana says:

      Hey Baseman,

      Make sure that you’ve installed drivers for your device on your PC. Sometimes, due to lack of drivers, SuperOneClick stops responding and you may have to restart it after installing the drivers.

      Hope it helps!

    Mahesh Makvana, I am having the EXACT same problem as Baseman and I, too, am becoming very frustrated. It keeps getting stuck on step 7 and saying “Waiting for device”. it will do this for hours. Please either post an even more detailed set of instructions, or provide an alternative method of rooting the LG Nitro HD (P930). A prompt reply would be much appreciated.

    BTW, I am also running A.V. 4.0.4, but my software version is: LG-P930-V20c-JUN-25-2012, whereas Baseman’s, I believe, is LG-P930-V20f-JUN-25-2012.

    This process is only for 2.3 as it says on the top 2.3 super one click. I have tried it many times with the one click but nothing. If you updated to 4.0.4 with lg software you boot loader is locked. Must unlock boot loader first. No ways as of i know yet.
