Thanks for that idea, but as I said - unless I can just walk into a store - buy & walk out with a crocket phone - I am 100% done with that evil corpy otherwise.
Hi KentE, and thanks !!
As it happens, ye olde Blu is staying right here so it can be 100% powered 24/7 & I'll maybe get my money's worth out of it over time - it has been a real disappointment to use when out & about, that's for sure - as it is finicky & eats its battery in no time flat.
Being a long-time LG phone fan as well as one who insists upon de-krapifying all tech gear in my uses - rooting is a very normal part of that process - and I've modded the phone you mentioned as well as other LGs.
Kingo/kingroot install Chinese krapware in place of the genuine superuser app & other stuff - and their krap is NOT easy to clean out - so I usually avoid those options UNLESS it is the only option.
Towelroot is usually very good and even easier to use - and I recommend it instead, especially for older LG phones - it is even faster than kingo and without the resulting mess.
CNET did a very bad thing if they failed to mention the side-effects of using those 'tools' !!
The main goal of rooting is to be able to remove junk that is just like what kingo dumps in MORE of, and their stuff is also protected such that it takes another paid app (which does not work 100%) to get rid of their junk - so I say phooey - best avoided, if possible.
Best Wishes to All.
