LG Aristo Root SuperSU MetroPCS MS210 / T Mobile M210

Rooting has many benefits. It gives administrative level permissions which are not accessible to a normal Android user. Moreover, with Magisk you can get the features of a custom ROM on a normal stock ROM.  LG Aristo can be rooted in one click without PC if the bootloader is already unlocked & a custom recovery (twrp) is installed.

So the prerequisites for Rooting LG Aristo are –

  1. Unlocking the Bootloader
  2. Flashing a Custom Recovery (TWRP)

Once you’ve installed TWRP we’re ready for the rooting process.

 

How to Root LG Aristo by Magisk or SuperSU – 

 

There are 2 ways to root the LG Aristo, either by flashing Magisk or SuperSU. I would suggest Magisk as it provides a lot more functionality as compared to SuperSU. It also has the potential to hide root from an app. Moreover, it has got a modules repository built in.

Once you’ve decided, Download the respective file and transfer it to a micro sd card or phone’s internal memory.

Magisk v14.0.zip

DOWNLOAD

SuperSU v2.82.zip

DOWNLOAD

Install the SD card in your LG Aristo.

LG Aristo Root TWRP

Now Boot the phone in recovery mode. To do this –

Power OFF the phone

Press the volume down and power key. When LG logo appears on screen, release the power key for a moment and hold it back again until you see the white Factory data reset screen. In the whole process don’t release the volume down key.

Now in recovery mode, move down with volume key to “Yes” and confirm the action with Power Key

Again move down to “Yes” and confirm with Power Key as shown above.

This will take you to the TWRP screen.

 

Aristo MS210 Root Twrp

In TWRP we’ve to mount the MicroSD card. Make sure you’ve inserted the SD card in the phone before Mounting.

To do this, click on “MOUNT” and “check” MicroSD as shown above.

Now we’re ready to flash the root file via TWRP.

If you wish to root with SuperSU, follow this link – LG Aristo SuperSu Root

Else continue with the below tutorial –

 

LG Aristo Magisk Root – 

LG Aristo Magisk Twrp

Now we’re ready to install Magisk.

Click on “Install” and select “sdcard1”. This is the MicroSD/External Memory folder.

As you’ve transferred the Magisk-v14.0.zip file to MicroSD it’ll show up in “sdcard1” folder

If you’ve downloaded the file in internal storage you’ll find it in “sdcard” folder, the folder just above “sdcard1”

Click on the Magisk-v14.0.zip file to install it.

Aristo Magisk Root Twrp

Swipe the bar towards the right to start the process.

Once the process is complete, click on “Reboot System” to restart the phone.

LG Aristo Magisk Manager

The Magisk manager is successfully installed. Give access to Magisk Manager by clicking on “ALLOW”.

Click the icon at the top left corner to explore Magisk.

 

Aristo Magisk Modules

The first option is “Superuser”. When we’ll grant root access to an app it’ll show up here.

Click on “Downloads” to view the available modules for download

LG Aristo Magisk Modules Download

You can download and install modules from here.

The installed modules will show up in “Modules” section.

Aristo Magisk Hide

The next option is “Magisk Hide”. It is very useful for apps which do not support a rooted device such as android pay app, banking apps, Pokemon go etc. Magisk hides the root from such apps.

Next useful option is “Settings”. Click to open it.

Aristo Magisk Settings

We can “Hide Magisk Manager” or run it in “Magisk Core Only Mode” if some app has detected root even after adding to “Magisk Hide”.

“Systemless hosts” option should be turned ON to use an ad blocking app such as Adaway.

 

Aristo Magisk Superuser

“Superuser Access” has 4 modes as shown above. I’ve given access to both Apps & ADB.

You can grant root access to an app automatically or you’ll be prompted to take action when root access is needed.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for the tutorial. I missed a few things during the tutorial and was not really clear at the end. But it works now.

    Unless I missed something at the beginning you really need to put huge bold words saying how huge of a need for an SD card there is. Got about halfway through and had to halt until I got one.

  2. Everything is work fine until this point now I’m trying to put the SupurSU root on the the phone now thru TWRP…..when I reboot only the TWRP screen loads up something and goes off then phone boots normally…… I cannot get the TWRP program back up after I reboot In recovery???? Help??? I still need to put SuperSu on my phone to finish this????

  3. After successfully rooting my lg ms210,when i either want to power on the phone of switch it off it will first show up this write up.”your device software can not be checked for corruption.
    Lock the boot loader.
    PRESS THE POWER KEY TO CONTINUE.
    Your device will boot up automatically after a whille.” Please what can i do to the phone so that the write up will not be coming up again.

    • Am having same issue after installing the Magdisk. every time phone is rebooted it reboots into the PRESS THE POWER KEY TO CONTINUE screen. When I press the power key, it boots back into TWRP **EVERY** time!
      Please help, I’ve come so far and now feel that I have killed (bricked) my phone…

  4. I’ve followed all the steps to hide it but Pokemo Go still isn’t allowing me to use the mock location. Is there a certain gps app I should be using? Or has Niantic figured out how to block Magisk?
