  • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • 2150mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 with Optimus UI

When the specs of the supposed LG Optimus G Pro leaked last week, it seemed almost too good to be true – like one of those fanboy wishlists you see populating forums and sub-Reddits across the web.

Exclusive: How To Root NTT Docomo's LG Optimus G

The Optimus G on Japan's Docomo network is an interesting device, as it ships with a mandatory access control system that basically prevents remounting system, reading boot, executing tasks with root privileges, and things of that nature. Thus, the root process for this version of the Optimus G was a tricky one.
