    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lightbulb Rage Permission Denied - Fix

    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.

    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!!!

    Default Problems following your directions

    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 ( >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???

    Default SuperOne Click

    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!

    Me either!

    just a thought, should this get a new thread?

    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?
