Before We Begin

You’ll need a micro USB cable handy.

Download the root package to your Windows PC and extract it to a folder called ‘saferoot’ on your desktop.

 You’ll need the LG USB drivers installed on your Windows PC. Download them from this link.
This root method requires USB debugging to be enabled. Accomplish this by going to Settings, then Developer options. Inside developer options, look for USB debugging and check the box next to enable it.
When USB debugging is enabled, plug your Optimus F3Q into your PC. After doing so, your device will prompt you to accept the USB debugging connection. Accept it.

How To Root Device

Navigate to the folder you extracted the root package on (named saferoot and located on the desktop of your Windows PC). Inside the folder, find a file named install.bat. Run it, and the rooting process will begin. This will take some time, but after a while it will root and then restart your phone. Once your device has finished rebooting, the root has finished.
