I have been trying for HOURS to get my LG Revo to root. Nothing has worked.
Here's my setup:
SW Version: VS910ZV8
Macbook Pro (with virtualized Windows 7 also)
I've tried using rageagainstthecage on the mac side through the adb method.
Every single time I run the rage exploit on the phone, it boots me out of shell (as expected). However, my phone then disconnects from adb and refuses to show up again in the devices list. I have also tried this method through the Windows side with the same results.
I've tried the zergRush method through both Mac and Windows sides, and it reports:
[-] Hellions with BLUE flames!
WTF? I know it means it failed.
I've also tried the LG Esteem method of rooting, which fails.
Tried SuperOneClick on both Mac side with mono and Windows side.
Okay sounds good. I got screwed over by this. I was on 2.2.2 V6 FOREVER, and JUST got an update notification this week. I was excited - 2.3.4 would get me rooted! But no, I get 2.3.6 with this V8 crap. TOTALLY missed 2.3.4 rootable. Booo
I use Windows 7 x64. Just downloaded the root package and it didn't work. I had not installed the drivers. I tried to use the driver package that came with this AIO file, but it did not work. I then tried the drivers from Official LG Phone Forum and still no luck. Finally, I opened a Windows XP VM, installed the drivers from lgforum, and success! Not saying it does not work with Win7, just that it wasn't working for me for some reason, but good ol' XP worked just fine.
