    Rooted or not, this phone does not have infrastructure hotspot functionality built in (the old Optimus M did). The best you can do with any of the wifi tethering apps is to create an ad-hoc signal which will not be recognized by many devices.
    There might be a way to make it create an infrastructure access point but I haven't seen anyone post it yet, and if there is it would definitely require rooting.
