update: VERIZON Enlighten customers that got the over the air update to 2.3.4. It blocks being able to root. If anybody is successful in rooting after update let me know and I will post here for others. TY
Rooting the LG Optimus Slider will be the same as for the Esteem. Trying to just use Gingerbreak 1.2 or Z4root will just hang. This will also work on the optimus Q.
You will need a data cable, pc, and data connection to download files onto PC. After root is complete Gingerbreak then can be added but is OPTIONAL, as this root will already put on superuser. But you may put on Gingerbreak for purpose of unrooting. See video as I show the unrooting as well.
Rooting lets you take full advantage of what your hardware is capable of. Such as overclocking and bypass the OS's limitations. Permissions are required for such apps to operate and need root access.... tether, keyboards, customs roms, and just because you can, though the phone companies don't want you to. Please do so at your own risk.
Files to download
LG Optimus SLIDER .... LGvm701
alternative LG Optimus SLIDER. It is a zip file.
LG Enlighten VS700

If you get a adb error when executing run.bat it might be that your USB drivers are not installed correctly.
you may have to install adb which is park of android sdk. here is how to get it.
and the download for
download drivers, download and unzip lg esteem root to folder (might have to turn off antivirus as some antivirus will deleted need files because this is an exploit and it see it as a threat), Is usb debugging enabled, make sure in charge only mode, open the run.bat file (you can also right click and choose run as administrator). recommended to do a factory reset before root as some apps cause issues.AdbError is driver issue
when unzip esteem root files there should be 8 files inside. (adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, AdbWinUsbApi.dll, busybox, run.bat, su, Superuser.apk, zergrush) if missing any files turn off antivirus.
