Rooting/Roming after updating?
I haven't updated because I heard it was harder to root/rom when it first came out but are the great minds on this site past that now? I'm wanting to add a custom Rom to my phone and don't know if I need to update the firmware or not. Thanks for the help guys.

if it is V9 there is z4root, if VC there is a tedious way not too bad it is in the http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...ng-roms-hacks/ section, even the VD is now pretty easy that link is http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...works-too.html
That last one seems to be the rooting standard as of now.

The ROMs are all based on preference, I've tried a few but have gotten stuck to Zefie's CM7 (Scott Pilgrim) build... gingerbread
And as for rooting and romming, that is seriously up to you, do you want to take some free time to customize your phone? The end result is nice, bricking the phone is a lot harder than it seems, and its really not too difficult, just need to get all your chickens in the same basket first, ya know?
I definitely want to and WILL root and rom, my main question is "to take the update from sprint, or not to take the update."
In the rooting forum the VD version seems to have the most activity and people there to help/answer questions. I'm assuming if I take the update I will be in VD not VC any longer.

It looks like im going to update because rooting VD has the most extensive support and followers right now. The instructions for VD look very straightforward and I can't find anything like that for VD. If I run into a hiccup it looks like I will have my answer answered more quickly.
