How to Root the LG Spectrum 2

LG Spectrum 2 is the successor of the LG’s first Spectrum device which was launched back in January, 2012. This new version of the device has got significant update over its older variant, instead of a Scorpion processor, the Spectrum 2 uses a 1.5Ghz Krait processor for better performance of the device. Software of the device has also been updated to Android ICS over the Gingerbread that the first Spectrum was running on.
