Here you go.

Alternative LG P940 Prada 3.0 v20d (ICS 4.0.4) Root Guide
cleaned / improved and with Superuser instead of SuperSU



needed files
-----------------
- Official LG ICS European Firmware Update -> http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/swdata...00/V20D_00.kdz

- Root package -> http://www.mediafire.com/?p4pw69blabz94ja


first steps
--------------
  • extract "p940_ics_root.rar".
  • install LG USB drivers from the "1. Driver" directory.
  • replace your windows hosts file with the one of the "2. Edited Windows Hosts File" folder. You find it in Windows Vista / 7 at -> "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc".
  • copy the folder "shttps" from the "3. Flash Tools" folder to "C:\" and start the "http.exe".
  • install "msxml.msi" from the "3. Flash Tools" folder.
  • install "B2CAppSetup.exe" (LGMobile Support Tool) from the "3. Flash Tools" folder and close both apps that start right after the installation.


root device
---------------
  • enable "USB-Debugging" on the device at "Settings | Developer".
  • put the USB cable in the device and let the system install the drivers.
  • shutdown the device.
  • right after the device has completely shutdown hold both the "Volume+" and "Power" key until you can see the following message on the screen -> "S/W Upgrade - Please wait while upgrading...".
  • start the "UpTestEX_mod2_marwin.exe" from the "3. Flash Tools" folder.
    Select on the left side "Select Type" -> "3GQCT". Select on the right side "PhoneMode" -> "EMERGENCY" and at "Select kdz file" enter the Official LG ICS European Firmware Update.
    Now click on "Normal web upgrade test" and on "Upgrade Start".
    In the opening window select "Country" -> "Different Country" und "Language" -> "YOUR LANGUAGE". Now click at "OK".
    Now you have to keep an eye on the temporary folder of the flash software.
    You find it in Windows Vista / 7 at -> "C:\ProgramData\LGMOBILEAX\Phone". In Windows XP at "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\LGMOBILEAX\Phone".
    (It starts to create the files when you see the following message on the screen -> "Running the LG Mobile Phone Software Update" steht).
    Right after it created "LGP940_AP[1].bin" replace it with the file of the "4. Patched v20d firmware part" folder. Now you have to wait till the firmware update is finished.
  • After the phone has sucessfully booted into the new os start the "root.bat" from the "5. Root" folder. It reboots the device again and roots it.

have phun :)
