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.
** Disclaimer: Please note that your warranty for the phone may be voided by LG after rooting. Do it at your own risk. I shall bear no responsibilities should your phone brick due to any reason. 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.
