    Hi there, welcome to the forum! I am not familiar with the ME860, and I do not know if the same hacks will work on your phone as will the MB860. Here is a thread explaining the difference

    MB860 / ME860 . What's the diff?



    To install any form of Jellybean, you will have to unlock your bootloader and install a custom rom. I did a quick Google search and found mixed results of peoples attempts with unlocking the bootloader for your phone, so it sounds like it can be done, but I am not sure if the process would be the same as the MB860. I would do some serious research before attempting to unlock your bootloader. Here is the process for the MB860...

    hello.. welcome to the forum.

    i agree with ultra.. when in doubt, study study study..

    it also doesn't hurt to look on youtube for the process so you'll have a visual representation of what you're getting yourself into.

    good luck.

    Barigaldi, I was in the exact same position some time ago: only a superficial knowledge of what rooting and ROMs were all about, but a keen interest in seeing for myself if the rumours about increased functionality, speed, etc. were all true.

    As soon as my warranty period expired I took the plunge, and I loved the experience.

    Research really is your friend, but concentrate it on the task you aim to complete: unlocking then rooting your phone, then installing a ROM that meets your needs. It may sound daunting at first, but if you have a little time, a curiosity about how things work, and know a little about the world of IT, things will go well.

    And in a pinch, you can always depend on the excellent support from the fine folks here.

    If you're interested, you can read up about my own experience here: Finally Taking the Plunge.

    My device is an MB860, and even though the recap above has its ups and downs, I'm now on my 6th ROM on this phone (epinter's Cyanogen Mod 10.1 variant, Jelly Bean 4.2.2) and now feel confident enough with the process to have gone on to root/ROM my kids' LG phones, a Galaxy S2, and my Nexus 7 tablet.
