Hello everyone, here is short and easy tutorial on how to root Lg Optimus L7 ( works on p700, p705 and p708 )

First of all let's prepare our phone for rooting, you will need:

  1. Firmware V10A ( tutorial for flashing firmware can be found [link] )
  2. USB Debugging on ( Settings, Developer options, than tick USB debugging )
  3. Phone connected in mass storage mode
  4. Root tool
  5. Usb drivers

Now let's get started.....

Download Root Tool and Usb driver, unpack root tool and install Usb drivers.

Connected your phone to pc in mass storage mode.

Start Lg Optimus L7 Root.bat

Now your phone will restart several times during root process, but you will have to wait when is restarting to finish booting and when you are on lock screen press any key in Root window to continue...

After few mins magic is done and your phone is rooted :)

no, I didn't, cuz I actually updated to V10a.

I did follow the tutorial, installed the drivers that I downloaded from here and the root app to

the thing is that the rooting app. is not allow to change anything in the phone

could be cuz I am using windows 7?
