After all the research I've done about rooting the S,
I just realized that the Optimus isn't compatible with ROM Manager/Cwm... Fortunately i havent tried recovering yet. Is it possible to properly uninstall this bundle (Rom Man., Superuser, and recovery) with no ill side effects?
Note: I even tried revovering for a new ROM, but could only get to the stock recovery menu (v2.2.2, LS670ZVD)

yes. if you do not have a service plan on your phone, any OptiS rom can be used. if you get a service plan on your phone i can give you a patch that you flash in a custom recovery that will still allow you to have cell service while the rom is for another baseband. any?'s just pm me
I would root my wii if it ran on Android, but i have already hacked it.

Used ROM Mangler on your Optimus S and having problems? Try this.

Re: After all the research I've done about rooting the S,
On another note, Ya. Optimus S is not supported by ROM Manager at all. Usage of it varies, but most brick or semi-brick. It's always a good idea to research before you install something that requires root (such as ROM Manager) to ensure it actually supports your device. There is a nice replacement for ROM Manager coming along called GooManager and we actually have a recovery that supports it (Drew's Cannibal Recovery, which adds a few features upon CWM Recovery).
The Play Store has a way to define compatibility, but sometimes the criteria of the compatibility is not what the developer wants (for instance, I'm not sure if you can blacklist a certain device without blacklisting a whole set of features, example, ARMv6, Armv7, or Tegra only. If it's possible then it's perhaps more of a laziness on the developer's part for not publishing it with the correct incompatibilities.)
A lot of these threads (mostly the ones at the top) however will help you with starting fresh and rooting from there. If you want a custom ROM, we have multiple GB ROMs, One ICS (Technically two, but ParanoidAndroid is rather unstable at the moment, I'm gonna try re-porting it soon, I would attempt today but I don't have my netbook on me to begin) and one JB.
