Root your LG Optimus F5 (LG-P875) Non Camera (Singapore)

As usual, it is time to root my phone after a full battery charge. Well, the purpose is to have full access to the phone. Below is the documented process of rooting the LG Optimus F5 (LG-P875) using motochopper. Kudos to the guys from xda-developers.

The rooting process provided below DOES NOT unlock your bootloader. Motochopper would work in the different operating systems (Windows, MAC, Linux). However, I am only going into the track for Windows.

Please ensure that you understand what you are going to do and why you are doing it before proceeding. Please ensure that your phone is left with at least 60% battery charge.

The accessories that came along is pretty standard. It included a 2-pin charger, a micro-usb cable and a 3.5mm in-ear earpiece. Do check that your unit must come with the “Certificate of Camera Removal” card, as it is required to verify that the camera removal is performed by LG. The set is made in Korea.
