I take no credit for discovering the root, this thread is simply for informational purposes only.

The usual: You are solely responsible for what happens to your phone as a result of using this guide

1. First Download the LG Drivers here:LG _USB - File Shared from Box
Then download and run the LG update tool here:

2. I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY, do a master/hard reset after updating to ZVD

3. Download the root:
I confirmed this working. I've personally used it and it works!

4. Now download Rom Manager from the Play Store (Android Market) and install CWM.

5. If successful up until now, M-A-K-E__A__B-A-C-K-U-P

6. Now you might want to go around and flash a few kernels and what not.
These two are confirmed working:

-Homeless kernel ( - - online file sharing and storage - download)

-Plague's 2.2 with hdmi fix (

Will add more kernels once you guys test them and report them as working.

7. Now is time for the themes. I don't use one personally so past this point whatever happens you had a back up so if the ZVC themes don't work you can go back to stock ZVD. Although I heard all ZVC themes work on ZVD

8. Roms? i haven't tested one yet. Don't use them, i like stock . Post away and let me know what works.

-This awesome site
-Dan Rosenberg (for the root)
-PG and Kanaida for the kernels
-Gbiggie (for his guide on the update)
-joshadaniels04 (for allowing me to post this guide instead of him lol, and for being and active users' helper)
-djlucklu (for providing working Proof of ZVD IJ ICS 1.3)
If i missed any one speak up and state why you should be thanked
Thanks it worked now I need my custom rom and custom kernel back which I could get from Rom Manager right? I really appreciate all of you guys
