    Hey there! so you want to know how to root your LG-L38C E400, correct? Ifso please read this.

    First of all backup your apps/data using this link, just in case:https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ppbackup&hl=en then make sure you have the correct drivers installed on your computer

    you can find them here:https://www.dropbox.com/s/dqycivg8x1..._Ver_3.7.2.exe

    Then here's the fun&easy part if you do it correctly!

    Go to:androidarea51.com and search:"One Click Root,CWM,Kernel LG Optimus Dynamic LGL38C" (remove quotes) you need to register to their forum in order to recieve your download link easy process and regulations just as any registration for forums. Make sure to set your time-out time to 10 minutes by going to settings>display> go back to check and make sure, then check the debugging box by going to settings>applications>development download and execute the file that you've downloaded from the site and connect your USB. READ AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS!

    After that's all done if you want to flash a custom rom, watch this:

    Any issues I'd be glad to answer any questions. GOOD LUCK!

    Those of you with problems, DH (owner of Area51) came up with this ROM, so it's probably a good ROM. I've used a few of his, spoken to him outside of the forum, and he knows what he's doing (he doesn't release junk). That said, there are 18 pages about this ROM on the Area51 forum so head over there, start reading (so you don't ask something that was answered months ago) and if you still can't figure it out, post a question.

    There's another choice if the answer to your question isn't enough to help you - they maintain a chat channel. (Those of you who know what IRC is head over to stlouis.androidarea51.com The channel is #arearom). Look for Live Chat on the menubar at the top. Many of the people on the forum hang out in the chat channel and will help you, even leading you by the hand, step by step, to get your phone working again. They're a bunch of nice people. (Ignore the kidding and flaming - people who know each other can sound like the start of WWIII while just joking around.)

    So head over to Android Area51 - Index and search for LGL38C in the search bar. The thread on this ROM should be the first thing returned.
