    2. You must have drivers for your device installed on your PC

    did you install? google for the drivers

    the reason why the pc is not identifying your phone is drivers. we just dont know which is the right drivers.

    Hi Kevin, welcome to Androidcentral. Visit this thread - http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...er-gb-ics.html

    Note that there is a difference in root access depending on the currently installed OS. If you are GB look at that thread. If on ICS you'll need to use another method, which is referenced in the thread. Thoroughly read through the thread to understand rooting and what you need to do if something goes wrong.
