**This Root Method has been confirmed working on the models listed below**
E980 AT&T (Does not work on 10P 01/08/2014 update)
E988 Starhub Singapore
1st: Go to http://www.lg.com/us/support-mobile/lg-E980 and download the drivers, let it install all the way before going to the next step.
2nd: Go to 7-Zip and download the program, it is the best one imo.
3rd: Download the attached root file below
4th: Un-Zip the Root file using 7-Zip to a known location
5th: Make sure in Developer Options you enable USB Debugging in your phones settings
6th: Make sure your phone is in Charge Only mode
7th: Plug your phone into your computer and give it about 3 minutes before going to the next step to ensure your computer can see your device
8th: Open the file and run the CurrentRoot.bat
9th: When it prompts you to go to MTP mode, do so in the same place Charge Only was found. LET IT SIT, 3 MINUTES MINIMUM!!!!! This will insure that your computer has seen your phone as a MTP device, if you rush it, the root will fail!
10th: Now hit any key to continue
11th: Once it is completed and your phone reboots, safely remove hardware to remove your phone.
You can download many free root checker apps from the Play Store or use SuperUser that is included with the root.

All done and rooted, want a new recovery and looking for an easy 5 minute CWM or TWRP Recovery, @Shelnutt2 has brought FreeGee to us which is a downloadable app in the Play Store.
If you took the AT&T 10P update and cannot root, go to HERE and @madmack is going to help the situation.

side note: I am not responsible for your phone, the above process worked flawlessly on my LG Optimus G Pro US Version E980 on 7/12/2013.
