    If anyone wants to root this device you can root it without bootloader unluck by using "motochopper". Just google it,download,enable usb debugging,and run it. It automatically runs,just follow prompts. If youre using windows run the"run.bat".

    Great info, thank you, zzgtp99.

    I've placed your thread in the F7 All Things Root area. Let's see how it flies and if we get positive feedback from new F7 users (very new device ;)).

    If it looks good, I'll edit our LG Optimus F7 Rooting Guide (http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-f7-all-things-root/691538-optimus-f7-all-things-root-guide.html, right above this area as a sticky) to include a link to that instructive post by you. :)

    when i try it the cursoe just blinks and nothing happens. Am I missing something? I have the drivers, debugging going. The Daemon starts but port 5037 but nothing after that.

    Yeah I had to uninstall the drivers that the phone automatically downloaded to my comuputer and went to the LG F7 website and downloaded the drivers they had for the phone from their site.

    Yes this is not hard recovery because LG lock bootloader.
    If you want go to recovery when you boot your phone, let press menu (touch) button for many time when phone go to boot animation. It will automatic go to CWM

    PS: Can you help me dump system.img from your phone?
