Root for Optimus 3D V20x Gingerbread Achieved

Rooting a device for the first time is exciting. However, that is unfortunately not where the battle for root typically ends, despite end user wishes. When new OS or bootloader updates are released, root access is often lost. Unfortunately, the push to root the new firmware isn’t always as fervent as on the original ROM.

Luckily this isn’t the case for the LG Optimus 3D, as XDA Member darkoctavius has posted about a method that will root those LG Optimus 3Ds that lost root when they were updated to Gingerbread. Unfortunately, it only works for the V20x firmwares, so if you’re running V21 or later, you may be out of luck for the time being. For those who are on V20x, you simply plug in your phone with charge only and USB Debugging on and run the run.bat file. Because it’s a .bat, that means it’s only compatible with Windows PC at this time.

For more information, the download link and additional information, you can find all that and more in the original thread. As usual, root methods can be pretty dangerous, so be sure you read all the instructions and are doing it right.

OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
