    I just got my new phone today and activated it.
    I tried to follow this guide Root and CWM - EASY guide
    1) installed the LG drivers
    2) ran moto chopper and got a failed message. the phone rebooted. Tried to run Titanium Backup but says phone is not rooted. So I ran motochopper again, this time getting the following (sorry not sure how to paste this in and keep the formatting)

    Superuser was installed the first time, so trying to install it the second time failed. Normal.

    Whether the final "Failure" is due to the Superuser error or not is the question. Uninstall Superuser and see if it still fails at the last step.

    How do I find that? I googled many variations of "xda-developers safe root optimus f3" and only find methods referring to motochopper.

    Thanks

    OK - followed that thread and with some mods to the bat file it worked! YAY! :D

    I posted some comments on that thread on the changes I had to make, so hopefully that might help someone else!

    Thanks all!

    I do also confirm that stump root works on the V8 update.
