I purchased a LG Optimus L5 from Bell.

But the model number is LG-E617G

Is this model incompatible with E610 guides?

I really want to get my phone rooted.

So if I was to use the 610 kernel... would NFC functionality go away?


Review:

Absolutely love this handset.

Everything runs smooth. Great at multi-tasking. This is my first android phone. I bought it because of the $150 price tag.

It has all the bells and whittles you would expect in a more expensive phone.

Amazing performance for what some dub as a lower end phone.

Whats left? A root is needed so I can clean out some apps which are locked down.

Cyanogenmod would be nice too.

Also,

Try playing HD games on this mobile, HD videos via MOBO Player, just tell if it supports as it will be helpful.
