Default Need a member to make root guide for this phone

I noticed y'all have established root for you phone.

If a member would make a very phone specific, for those that don't know anything about rooting, "root guide"; I will put it in the All Things Root Guide sticky for all new members to easily find and use. You must include all links to original info and downloads as well.

Thanks

This is what i do to root my L3:
Rooting tools similiar to LG Spectrum, and take step-by-step guide following Dan Rosenberg Method. Here is the link: Root LG Spectrum Smartphone Method By Dan Rosenberg

Here is what his method:

Pre-Requisites to Root LG Spectrum
To Root your LG Spectrum these are few things you need .
1. Download the Root tool for Windows (http://vulnfactory.org/public/spectrum_root_windows.zip), or the Linux/OSX version (http://vulnfactory.org/public/spectrum_root_linux_osx.zip)
2. You have to Enable USB Debugging on your Device. To do this you have to go to development option in your appplication setting .
3. Make sure that your device has a charge of at least 60%, I would recommend you charge at least 90% to be safe .

How to Root LG Spectrum
1. Extract the tool which is in zip file you have downloaded .
2. You have to install LG ADB drivers if you are on Windows .
3. Connect your tablet via USB to computer .
4. Execute the “run.bat” file if you are windows or “run.sh” from a terminal (on Linux/OSX) . Wait till this get completed .

How to enable USB Debugging:
1. connect phone to pc
2. see usb icon on shortcut drop down, you see message : charge only , usb storage , go to pc-software and press ok.
3. go to settings menu- press applications - press development now you can press usb debugging press ok. USB debugging options should be able to tick

beforehand, you need to install L3 USB driver, find it from LG E400 Support: Find Manuals & Warranty Info | LG UK click the software update & drivers

Hope it helps

Okay, once it is rooted what it the compatible recovery tool? CWM?

I told a friend CM9 is in development for this phone. He is asking for how to do it. A bit surprised, but pleasantly.

Hey all! i purchased an LG Optimus L3 E400 the other day from Tesco Ireland.
I've tried using all the root scripts and even superoneclick but i still can't root my phone.
I can enter Debugging mode and the phone is detected on both my windows and linux machine but niether the windows or linux script work. I've removed both the sim card and the sd card but still cannot root it.

I would really appreciate any advice. oh it's running android 2.3.6 and the software version is v10H-OCT-31-2012.

Thanks in advance

Got it! downloaded superoneclick version 1.7.0.0 and selected RageAgainstTheCage option. worked a treat. Just make sure your using version 1.7.0.0.
