Rooting method for L3II,L5,L5II,L7,L7II,L9,L9II

Credits:
Masterkey exploit tool has been released by Saurik on his website http://cydiaimpactor.com all thanks to him.

Code:
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
Requirements:
  • Computer
  • USB Cable

Procedure:
  1. Install latest LG Driver installed (available on LG website).
  2. Enable Developer Options on you Android device.
  3. Connect your device to the computer throught the USB cable.
  4. Download Cydia Impactor from http://www.cydiaimpactor.com .
  5. Extract the zip and run impactor.exe (with administrator right if you are on vista or later).
  6. Click on start.
  7. Wait some seconds
  8. Reboot
  9. Go to PlayStore and install SuperSu or get APK from ApkMirror

Tested Working on:
L5 E610 V20A 4.1.2
L5 E610 V20D 4.1.2
L7 P700 V20D 4.1.2
L7 P708 V20A 4.1.2

Recents updates:
Like some users reported LG fixed both masterkey exploit used by impactor to get root, so if you are running a recent firmware or you took an OTA this method may not work, impactor will return "SIGNATURE BUGS UNAVAILABLE"

Alternatives:
Look at Framaroot or TowelRoot

This is cool and all, but why do this when we can tap the screen 8 times to root with LGPwn?

Thanks though! Someone will find plenty of use from it(:

Cool, worked on my cousins stock P769. Much better/faster, and easier than the original root method.

This is much easier than LGPwn. Especially when you're trying to fix the wonky touchscreen. Thank you!!!!!
