I guess because of FED check these phones become totally worthless....so much money & energy wasted on ringplus

But this is not a bad price for a modest rootable lollipop device (tethering can be enabled after rooting the device)

How to root
  1. Install KingRoot (fishy Chinese app, use at your own risk)
  2. Replace KingRoot with SuperSU [w0lfdroid.com]
  3. Do not update SuperSU in Google play store yet, install SuperSU binary, reboot
  4. Update SuperSU in store, update SuperSU binary, reboot


Unhide Tether Menus

ChameleonNodeMenu from Shortcut Master (Lite) ⇒ Tethered Data ⇒ set to 4 ("2" enables WiFi Hotspot menus, "4" enabled both USB and Wifi Hotspots menus, "3" hides both menus)

APN Configuration

com.lge.hiddenmenu(com.lge.hiddenmenu.vzw_only.ApnSettings) from Shortcut Master (Lite) ⇒ internet ⇒ APN type = default,mms,dun ⇒ save

This is not the greatest phone in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.

Mind explaining to me how a $17 Android WiFi device with a quad-core processor, hi-res screen, camera, GPS, built-in and expandable storage and is able to run hundreds of thousands of apps and games exactly useless? Some of us really don't care that it doesn't work on your precious RingPlus.

Kingroot has updated to version 4.9 and now it behave pretty much different after gaining root access (not moving itself to system directory etc.)

I think Ringplus has gone belly-up anyway. Their website has been broken since yesterday. Maybe I'm overreacting and they just don't care enough to fix it. The website is still there, but you can't do anything. You cannot log into your account. Probably can't sign up - "EDIT" Tried to sign up, no go.. It's basically dead.

OK, that's really strange then. I tried my laptop and 2 phones. None of them can log into my account or sign up for a new account.

Very odd. At first I thought maybe it was the hotel wifi, but I turned off wifi, and tried using LTE, still get site can't be reached. I don't seem to have issues with any other sites. Hmmm.....
