    OK, I downgraded to ZVH, rooted, then tried to install the ZVJ update.zip but it didn't work.

    Any ideas on getting ZVJ with root? It keeps bugging me about an update to ZVJ, if I update, will I still be rooted or will it break the root? I'm gonna try it and see...

    I'm so confused. I reverted back to ZVD. Downloaded and ran [optiauto-sfx.exe]. It said that I was done, but my phone looks the same. I can see the files on my phone, too.

    Do you understand what rooting your phone actually does? No magic bunnies or flying horses appear (except Superuser in your apps drawer). Check out the welcome guide for more info and some suggestions as to what might get you started.

    How do you determine whether you're on ZVJ or ZVH? My phone's SW version is VM701ZV4, leading my to think its on ZV4? helllpp :/

    based on your previous post, i think you missed a step. you need to flash ZVJ with stock recovery, not xionia.
    i'm on my phone right now, but i'll post a link to how to flash stock recovery soon.


    EDIT: go to this thread and download the rooting tool.
    if you've gone back to unrooted ZVJ, then go back to ZVH and use Option A to reroot.
    once you have rooted ZVH, select Option B, and follow the instructions word for word to obtain rooted ZVJ.

    So just to clarify, it is impossible to root an LG Optimus S with ZVJ without downgrading to ZVD, factory resetting/wiping it, and losing all of your data? Sorry I am very new to this I just want get rid of this bloatware so I have room to install what I want!!

    If you find a flashable superuser zip that should work.... How did you loose root?

    I was deleting music files off of my sd card, I guess I deleted the root file, however, I did use the optiauto-sfx.exe and hit A and it worked. I got rooted and everything is fine. I flashed SlimBean ROM and have been using that now for the last couple of days. Great ROM, love all the options on it.

    Anyone ever get stuck at the automated script saying "push copy2tmp/zergrush -> /data/local/tmp/zergrush"? I've followed the instructions precisely, but I've been sitting here for the last half hour or so waiting for it to do something and it hasn't done anything. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Edit: Nvm. Tried it on a different computer. Worked fine. Thanks for the scripts!
