How to Root LG Optimus 3D Max P720

Your LG Optimus 3D Max P720 has to try out new firmware one of these days. How about SRSRoot? This tool is particularly great if you’re planning on rooting your smartphone!

This tool is an app like no other. It’s 100% free to download, it’s stoked with goodies and it comes powered by an SRS Server. These are only some of the things which make this software appealing. The SRSRoot dedicated app allows you to unroot your device, no matter what brand it is; and no matter its Android OS version. The variant running on your phone is the 2.3.6 Gingerbread one.

The benefits of this procedure

There is also another advantage to using the SRSRoot: you can use whateber Build ID you want. We went for this one: GRK39F.

By rooting the device you own, its dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU will perform much faster. The battery which comes with the handset will receive many tweaks; they’ll help it perform much better. You’ll get the following, as well: root-only apps and customization options. This application provides custom ROMs as well as plenty of new features. The device will also have admin and superuser permission. What it won’t have are bloatware and viruses.LG-Optimus-3D-Max-P720

If you plan on someday upgrading your rooted device, you will no longer have a system partition; or the root access. But you will still make use of the phone’s internal and external SD cards. The update will not damage the device’s most important content. If you consider a rooting, the smartphone will end up with a revoked warranty. Thankfully, you will be able to get that one back.


Today’s procedure needs you to perform certain instructions known as pre-requisites. They sound like this:

  • generate some backups in case you wish to protect the important data on your device from major damage;
  • a full NANDroid backup is needed, so make sure you generate one;
  • your notebook must sport Windows as its main operating system;
  • your LG Optimus 3D Max P720 needs to perform the guide with a fully charged battery;
  • your notebook needs to have USB drivers inside it;
  • go to this place to locate them;
  • after that, download them on the notebook;
  • open your phone’s security programs and have them turned off;
  • open the same on your notebook and make sure they are also disabled.

Step by step instructions

You should be able to begin the rooting now.

  1. After performing all of the requirements, start the first step of our guide. Which looks as such: download, on your laptop, the SRSRoot app. You will have to go to this page to locate the dedicated app.
  2. As soon as you’ve landed on the website we indicated, be sure to tap on a download button displayed there. After this is done, install the application on the laptop. This file will need to be launched on the device, too.
  3. After doing as indicated, you can tap Unknown Sources. This option is situated under an option whose name is this: Settings. The latter can be launched if you tap Menu.
  4. After you have enabled the Unknown Sources option, move on. Only this time, make sure this option is turned on: USB Debugging. You may have already activated it for the requirements.
  5. You can turn it on now if you haven’t. When done with this step, continue with a different one.
  6. Which needs this from you: establish a connection between the LG Optimus Max and your notebook. To provide something like this, you will need the smartphone’s USB cord.
  7. The plugging shall begin very soon. Give it some time, then proceed to the rooting of your LG Optimus 3D Max P720. This most important action shall require some help.
  8. The latter is offered by this option: Root Device (All Methods). Root it, then wait again. If 15 minutes are up and there’s no sign of a completed rooting, do this: go back and redo the steps.
  9. If you don’t have problems with the rooting, you can do one more step. It’s the last one and it tells you to do the following: restart your handset.
  10. The method to use for this part: click on Reboot System Now. The phone will now enter the rebooting phase. When it finishes, you can enjoy the latest additions to your P720.

If they don’t have the effect you’ve been expecting, you have to strip your phone of its root access. Use the SRSRoot again.
