You have a Telus P935 phone with the AT&T P930 leaked ICS v18f ROM installed on it. All the P93x devices are identical, so there's nothing wrong with having that installed on that device.

If you want to install custom ROMs, you will need to follow the unbricking guide to downgrade to Gingerbread. From there you can install CWM and then flash to any P93x ROM you want.

If you only want root and you are happy with LG's ICS ROM, then I'd actually recommend that you update your phone to the newest Telus ICS ROM which is improved over the one you have installed. You can root it easily as well, however you can't install CWM from any of the ICS ROMs.

Install USB driver then software update from that page.

After you have the new update, do a factory reset (hold volume down + power button after turning phone off).

Then to root, do this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1835946
