Important Reminders:

This guide is only applicable if you have an LG Optimus 3D P920 with Android Gingerbread.

Always remember to keep a backup of your important files such as your SMS messages, phone contacts, images, music files, video files, etc.

Check your handset’s battery and see to it that it is fully charged. If not, at least make sure that its minimum power level won’t go any lower than 80 percent.

You also need to disable your phone’s Anti-Virus and Security apps (if applicable). You should do the same for your Windows-based computer. *Note: This process won’t work on Mac.

Open the folder called “megatron_windows” and see to it that you have connected your phone to your computer via USB data cable. Make sure that you have disabled your phone’s mass storage mode.

Step 4: As soon as you’re done, run the application called “adb” and wait for a few seconds. After you have installed the adb file, click on the windows batch file.
