Root Please help; Newb. Where do I get the 2.3.4 gingerbread for my phone?

Patience appreciated. I have an L45C LG phone cdma with net10. I'm trying to root it because the phone company crippled the settings section of the 2.3.4 android operating system PREVENTING the user to change the time. (mine is set to 1980! not kidding - which makes running apps almost impossible). I do not want to activate the phone just to use it as a wifi device.

I found this thread here on how to root - but I'm confused on HOW to actually replace/install a non-LG version of android 2.3.4.
1) Where do I download a "clean" or uncrippled version of gingerbread 2.3.4 which would work with my phone? Thanks for help.

For the best exposure I moved this thread form Android Lounge to the sub-forum dedicated to discussing root-related questions about your phone.
