Rooting method for the new LG G Pro 2 Lite, the new smartphone developed by the South korean company LG, created in 1947, but that took the abbreviated name “LG” in 1995 as an abbreviation of “Lucky Goldstar” in South Korea, which has been translated into English as Lucky Venus (Goldstar). Before, many of their electronic products were sold under the Goldstar brand, while other household products (not available outside South Korea) were sold under the brand name “Lucky”. The latter was famous for household cleaning products and laundry detergents in South Korea. Before massive industrialization of the South Korean company, Lucky name was synonymous with toothpaste. The new smartphone LG G Pro 2 Lite is available to buy since this summer.
