Addition to releasing its flagship Android smartphone for this year, LG also introduced a couple of mid-end phones, including the LG K7. In the US, the K7 released by MetroPCS (MS330) and T-Mobile (K330). Boost Mobile also released similar devices with extra CDMA support, they re-brand it as LG Tribute 5 (LS675). The phone user is advanced users friendly, since you’re able to gain root on LG K7 by using easy to use one-click app.
The K7 supports LTE / WCDMA / GSM network, powered by 5-inches WVGA display, 1.1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. Although the hardware specs is not so good, but the phone has been powered with Android 5.1 Lollipop, which has excellent performance and beautiful User Interface (UI) based on Google Material Design.
For those who want to get the most out the phone by acquiring superuser privileges, you got covered, as the Kingroot app has managed to give root access to LG K7 running stock Lollipop. Until now, Kingroot app has helped thousands of Android devices to achieve superuser privileges, including this phone, but not everyone realized it because they were never told if the app supported the K7, you would not have known until you try it yourself.
The app has been tested and reportedly working on Metro PCS variants of LG K7 (MS330), but we do not yet know the compatibility with T-Mobile variants (K330), since no one has confirmed it. If you’re planning to give it a try, be careful, simply because every root attempt could brick your phone.
Here’s the overview on how doing it right based on Xda:
- Enable Developers options on the phone.
- Allow Unknown sources to install the non Play Store app.
- Download Kingroot app (apk) then install it.
- Run the app, then hit “Get now” button to start rooting process.
- Wait until it’s done, and your phone might reboots.
- Once done, you have an option to install SuperSU with SuperSu-me.
