    I wanted to have this threat to have my phone as the poster child of needing help. I am no stranger nor newbie to rooting, and this is the first phone in my clutches I have been unable to do anything with.

    Having the phone since yesterday afternoon I have tried the infamous TowelRoot, Framaroot. I have tried Purple Drake. None have worked, and was told have to unlock bootloader to get them to root. Bootloader unlock as posted in these forums has not worked. Cannot bootload to recovery, and have only been able to get to the download screen once. Flashing has also been unsuccessful and never even got into flashing. Stopped on phone analysis at 60%.

    Phone Specs:
    Android 4.4.2
    Baseband M8610B (let me know if u need the rest)
    Kernel 3.4.0+
    Software: MS32310c

    I know based on these and XDA forums something about the 10c stopped root. I get that. Didn't get an option in that, came with phone. But damn, NOTHING IS WORKING??? It's not like its a friggin Galaxy 5 here.

    Does anyone have any comprehensive instructions on getting past these problems. I need to root this phone; with 1GB internal space, I have to take this bloatware off this thing.

    I thought I'd start this thread, as no one has posted any problems or issues prior to the summer.

    Thanks all.

    Downgrade to firmware B and then do everything you need to... Flashing the KDZ is rather easy

    Crutchcorn is exactly right. The 10c update for the l70 is not root able with towelroot as of yet... Have to go back to 10b to achieve any of this. I've had this l70 for 2 months now and its still on 10b.

    I recently unbricked my ms323b using the lg flash tool. My phone upgraded while my girlfriend was using it the other day and its on ms323c now. Would I just reflash v10b to use towelroot?

    I was able to FINALLY flash the phone. It took a minute, but I was able to find some very detailed instructions compiled from several sites in order to do it. I am now rooted and bootloader unlocked to boot!

    Yes, you will have to flash the phone as I did back to version MS323b in order to use any root. Towelroot probably is the quickest and the least painful. Something happened in the C version that fixed the exploits for root and unlocking. Can't do anything with it unless you flash back.

    Are you asking for a zip flashable (using CWM) rom or how to flash the 323b KDZ?

    Use Kingo ROOT. Worked on my Lgsm323 quickly and doesn't un-root even after a factory reset.
