    ShootMe is on the whitelist, LMK if your screenshots come out purple, mine did!
    And if you try drocap2, you have to change a setting in there for colors, i forget what it's called and don't have my phone on me. If you don't change it, they'll come out Red.

    Windows ADB root instructions moved to a new thread.

    I would recommend using Titanium Backup to freeze apps, rather than deleting until we have the ability to create backups.

    drocap2 is free in the Market. Just go into the settings and set it up, make sure the 3rd (i think, got some funny words in it) setting is turned on if you get red pictures.
    so is there no clockwork yet?
    Not yet, so don't get too ballsy with your root access.

    yeah, that one! you can change the destination folder, output file type and such. I live shootme, because you can take a crapload at once without having to restart the app. I fired off an email to the dev to have him take a look at it.

    Thank you for contacting LG Electronics


    ------Reply to Your Inquiry-------


    Hi Andy,

    LG does not support altering this phone from the original manufacture state or any rooting of this device. To do so will void your warranty with LG Electronics should you need any repair service or software flashes. We will not be releasing any pertinent hardware or software related information. It is at this point considered proprietary. I would hope you understand.

    ./data/local/temp/rage: permission denied

    did u install the LG bootstrapper ufkal?
    To fix this I ran the following command (after the rage file was pushed to the device):

    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage

    This should change your permissions to full access and allow you to run the command.

    Superone click worked for me. Download the latest version with gingerbreak support and make sure you use that instead of psneuter or whatever it's called. Keep usb debugging off until after you press root then when it says waiting for device turn on usb debugging and it should work properly because that's what I did. Most of you probably know that being in Internet connection mode is the right one to be in for this process. Let me know if you have problems and sorry it's not in step by step format I'm typing this from my revolution
    worked PERFECT for me. so easy. thanks!

    im on a mac and i can't get the su pushed.. keeps saying read only folder... has anyone else got if on a mac?

    -Update I got it to push after i mounted it.. now i can;t get busy box to get root.. I rebooted and still nothing.. busy box says phone is rooted but cant get root acces.. What did i mess up?

    -Update 2 - ZenMasters instructions worked great.. i had to do them in a weird order which i will explain later. I now have root and time to de-crapify my phone.

    Like you said I tried Superone click
    1. Download 'SuperOneClickv1.9.1-ShortFuse' and connect usb when usb debugging off
    2. when it says ' waiting for device' turn on usb debugging
    3. But! for 10 mins
    it keep saying 'Running GingerBreak'

    What should I do if I really want to root my REVOLUTION!!!

    Following the method in the OP achieved root for me, but would not persist through a reboot. Here is a revised procedure that seems to be working great!

    adb shell

    Now you need to remount your /system directory as read/write, so type:

    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
    cd /system/bin
    cat /data/local/temp/su > su
    cat /data/local/temp/busybox > busybox
    chmod 4755 su
    chmod 4755 busybox


    At this point, you may way to remove the files you put in /data/local/temp:
    I'm new to rooting using the ADB method and I've been having problems: When running through your directions on mounting the drive, I can't figure out where your spaces are and when entered, it either can't find the directory or comes us with "Usage" notes. I would appreciate step-by-step copyable instructions if you happen to have any. Just an observation, but no ones steps seem to work all the way through... Usually requires some alterations, paraphrasing or other sources. I'm running Win 7.

    Just to clarify, here's what I've done:
    - Met prerequisites to CMD step
    - Loaded rageagainstthecage, su, and busybox
    - Pushed all three files
    - Ran the following commands (http://androidadvices.com/how-to-roo...93-tutorial/): >After this just type in the command as “adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage”
    >Up next, type in the command prompt as “adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage”
    >adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/su

    - Attempted to run through the remounting process, without success.
    - Have attempted to run step-by-step through Z-master's steps w/o success, prefacing commands with "adb shell" as well as without.

    Any suggestions???

    Tried the application (1.9 short-fuze) and was unable to get it to work initially, but following through with the debugging mode turned off initially worked for me, as well. I would still appreciate insight into the ADB method!

    Thanks!

    I am having that issue with ShootMe. Is there anything we can do?

    aaaaaaand done haha... Weird though, bc superuser didn't ask for permissions when opening shootme, but it did for rootexplorer and cachemate for root...
    Me either!

    just a thought, should this get a new thread?

    Type thusly:

    adb shell

    if you get "$" for a prompt, then:

    su

    When you get a "#" prompt, then:

    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system

    You can then exit the shell and push su.

    However, I can't seem to get the root to persist through a reboot.

    Let me know how it goes!

    -Z
    When I do this i get su
    su: permission is denied.

    Looked through posts, it is being recognized as a adb device and I can see it under "adb devices" any thoughts?
