fastboot is not just for unlocking your bootloader. fastboot will allow you to flash almost every partition on your device, especially now that your bootloader is unlocked. Flash CWM with fastboot. Then you can use CWM to install CM, AOKP, AOSP roms that are already rooted. Don't know how many there are for your device tho. There's all kinds of information around here for using fastboot. Search is your friend

Works on mine. Did you follow the instructions to install the fastboot ( OMAP4 ) drivers?

im kinda confused about fastboot. how can i go to fastboot? if I have successfully unlocked my bootloader it means that fastboot is installed correctly right?

Theoretically yes. If you have a Terminal Emulator app on your device, type the following two lines. Each line is a separate command.
Code:
su
reboot fastboot
That should put you in fastboot mode, then allowing the fastboot executable on your system to communicate with the device via the fastboot protocol. The 'su' may not be necessary.

Otherwise you'll have to use adb. Make sure device is booted normally. Doesn't matter what mode it's in, ie; Charge Only, MTP, LG Software, etc... Type the following in a command prompt window...
Code:
adb reboot fastboot
If you don't have ADB installed, you don't need the entire Android SDK, just the platform tools. There are several packages floating around here that contain just the fastboot executable and the adb executable with it's support libraries. Support libraries are for Windows only.
