Rooting, Unrooting, and Flashing Guide for Optimus 3D

Once a mobile device earns its tenure, there often comes a point when someone compiles all of the great development work into a simple, easy-to-find post. In addition to aiding contributors to better help new users, these compilation threads even serve as a quick reference for experienced users looking to snatch up  a tool or a root method.

XDA Recognized Developer The Dark Lestat has done exactly this for the LG Optimus 3D, thanks to a thread with a variety of tools and instructions to help, well, pretty much anyone. The list of tools present is pretty much your starter kit if you’re interested in rooting and modding your Optimus 3D, including the latest one-click root method, the LG flashing utility for flashing stock firmwares, and Recovery Manager. Instructions on how to use all of them are included as well.

Additionally, there’s a micro guide on changing one’s APN. This guide is still a work in progress, so there’s bound to be even more tools and tutorials to come, so users of the Optimus 3D would do well to bookmark the thread and check up later.

For additional information, many, many download links and full instructions on pretty much everything, check out the compilation thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
