    I'm having the same issues, I have the latest drivers and ADB is on, but it's not sending.
    Anybody have a suggestion?

    I rooted mine today. I had two issues that may help the community.

    After I installed the drivers I needed to reboot the computer to get it to recognize the phone.

    I tried running the root program as administrator but it didn't work. I tried just opening it and it worked.

    Worked great for me. I did have to upgrade Busybox afterward.

    I have tried this numerous times now, as Administrator and not, ADB loaded, Unknown Sources and Debugging both checked, and I can only get "the system cannot find the path specified". Can you elaborate on step #4: "...make sure that Windows see the device's adb connection correctly"? I go to the STUFF folder and click ADB.exe but the list scrolls so quickly and doesn't stay on my screen, so I don't know if it is actually 'seeing' my device. I have tried multiple USB ports and cables.

    Thanks.

    You have to open up a command prompt and navigate to the Stuff folder. Plug your phone in and type "adb devices" and press enter. It should list your device there. If it doesn't, try installing the drivers again. If it does, and you still get the error running the batch file, copy it into a folder with no spaces, such as "c:\opg" or whatever you'd like, just no spaces anywhere.

    Ok "adb devices" lists my phone. So I run the bat file again and now I'm getting

    "remote object '/system/app/backup-restore.apk' does not exist
    remote object 'system/bin/ric' does not exist"

    Thanks for any help here.

    Did as instructed but didn't run .bat file as admin and that worked on the Sprint version.
    Root confirmed!

    Anyone having issue with slow recharging? I am on Sprint and it takes forever to fully charge. Everything else about the root is fine though

    UPDATE: I actually switched the data cable with another and battery charged quickly.

    Same here... software version ls970zv9 .. build ZV9.IMM76L

    Anyone know of a fix? I think i may just factory restore - I'd assume that would revert the build to original.

    ... transferring all my ROMs off the storage is taking forever.

    HELP PLEASE!

    A factory restore will not take it back to the original build. Your on the newest build which breaks this method of rooting. We're on our own until one of these awesome people figure out how to do it now....One click root would be awesome, lol...........BTW, someone try Gingerbreak or Gingersnap, whatever it was...it worked great on the optimus s...hahahaha

    You need to root while on ZV7 or ZV8. There is a script named around for going back.

    Once rooted, you can use Voodoo OTA Root Keeper to backup root and then restore it after the OTA update.

    The last three characters of the software version. So far, there have been ZV7, ZV8 and ZV9. ZV9 closed the method that had been used on the prior two versions for rooting.
