Easy Root and More for the LG Optimus 3D

As devices are released, the first and foremost achievement to be gained is root. First root methods are often messy and include a lot of ADB commands and complicated procedures. As development for a phone evolves, so does the root method—one click methods come out, and eventually simple guides are written that allow even the newest users gain root, recovery, and get ready for their first ROM and kernel flashes.

The LG Optimus 3D now has one such guide courtesy of XDA Forum Member MANBEARPIG69. The guide helps users through the first root using the Optimus 3D’s easiest one-click root method, and then shows users how to install ClockworkMod Recovery using ROM Manager. Of course, this is all that users need if they’re only after root and recovery, but for those looking to install some custom ROMs and kernels, MANBEARPIG69 continues the guide by suggesting some good, stable ROMs and kernels. MANBEARPIG69 also provides short explanations of what the ROMs and kernels do and how to install them. Lastly, the guide gives users a list of a few root-enabled apps besides the typical (but awesome) Titanium Backup. This is an excellent way for new Android users to really get inside their Optimus 3D, and even for more advanced users looking for the latest and easiest root methods.

If you’re looking for Optimus 3D root, recovery and more, hit up the original thread for download links, screen shots, step by step instructions and everything else you’ll need to make the Optimus 3D work how you want it.
