There is a good news for LG Optimus L7 P700/P705 owners that finally after countless hours of searching on internet, I find the guide about how to unlock bootloader on the device.
Instructions for unlocking Bootloader on LG Optimus L7
- Download the tool attached above and extract it to C:
- Make sure you have USB debugging enabled. Phone should be in "Charge only" mode.
- Connect your LG Optimus L7 into the PC via USB cable.
- Go into the C:\L7CWM folder and run Flash_Bootloader.bat your phone will then restart, now you have the bootloader unlocked
Caution: This will be removed after you flashing a stock recovery.
If you want to install CWM:
After phone reboot completely, open again the same folder and run Flash_Recovery.bat this will flash the new custom touch controlled recovery and phone should restart again.
Not sure if Root access is needed (I have already rooted my phone before trying this). So if you encounter issues while unlocking, please root your phone and try it again. Good luck.
