    You're going to need to use adb. Don't fret, it's easy and it's always good to learn

    Set up the Android SDK.

    Turn on USB debugging on your phone.

    Download the attached files, and extract them out of their zips. Place them in your SDK/platform-tools folder.

    Open your command line utility (this works on Windows, Linux or Mac) and navigate to the SDK/Platform-tools folder.

    Enter the following, one line at a time:
    Code:
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
    adb shell 
    ./data/local/temp/rage
    exit 
    adb push su /system/bin 
    adb shell 
    chmod 755 /system/bin/su
    You're rooted. Hit the market and install superuser, and busybox
    Superuser
    Busybox

    Wait, what about drivers? I tried the drivers on the Verizon Mobile cdrom that gets installed when I plug it in and the drivers from LGs website. I still get usb device not recognized and nothing in adb devices. Should I be looking somewhere else, or is my computer not happy?

    Put it in Internet Connection mode first.

    I believe I did...silly software ran, and then tried to install the auto update software. So do I try to install again? or should I have not installed it?

    That's what i did to get it to recognize in adb. Ur sure ur in debug and internet connect?

    Used the rootzwiki instructions but can't get permission to push su : read only.

    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!

    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!

    Just like the original method, get ADB working (I'm using Linux, BTW, so I can't really help with Windows issues).

    Make sure you have "Internet Connection" selected as your USB connection mode, and USB Debugging selected in Menu -> Applications -> Development (as previously discussed, USB debugging will remain greyed out until Internet Connection is selected).

    Grab SU and Rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, linked in the OP, and busybox, which I have attached below.

    Place all three files in a convenient location for pushing with adb (your /[Path-To-SDK]/platform-tools directory would be a great idea)

    From your terminal, type:

    adb push su /data/local/temp
    adb push rageagainsthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
    adb push busybox /data/local/temp


    Now enter adb shell:

    adb shell

    You will now see a "$" prompt.

    Type:

    ./data/local/temp/rage

    Now wait until you get kicked all the way back to your terminal prompt. If you see the "$", don't do anything, just keep waiting! When it's done you'll be all the way out of ADB, which you will now need to restart.

    Get back to the adb shell:

    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:

    (optional)
    rm /data/local/temp/su
    rm /data/local/temp/busybox
    rm /data/local/temp/rage

    Then reboot:

    reboot

    When your phone reboots, go to the market and download Superuser.

    This worked for me, hopefully it will work for you!

    Thanks dude, gonna give this a go tonight. Been fighting with windows like it's cool. same problem as everyone else with not being able to push su.

    For those having trouble getting ADB access:

    -Connect phone to computer in Charge Only mode
    -Install the LG Bootstrapper that comes up (this will install ALL Drivers)
    -Change your USB connection to Internet Connection (after it registers with the drivers, you will see the ADB icon in your status bar (looks like an android bug/ladybug)
    -open your terminal or command prompt, navigate to your adb folder like in the above post
    -type adb devices, if you see a device id there (think it's S/N but not sure), you're good to proceed.

    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

    Would've used S1c, but...

    S1C application opens on my laptop, but it bluescreens when I connect the phone.
    Phone connects to Desktop just fine, but S1C won't open (well, "Force Closes")

    Both running Win7x64. :/

    mount -o remount,rw -t etx3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
    cd /system/bin
    cat /data/local/temp/su > su
    cat /data/local/temp/busybox > busybox
    chmod 4755 su
    chmod 4755 busybox
    Possible Typo?

    Shouldn't it be:
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system

    Why yes! Thank you, Post updated. I was way more concerned about getting the mmcblk0p12 part right !

    when typing in the commands, we don't actually type the # signs bc it's already there or am i crazy? And is that going to just repeat what you type after you put it in...? Kinda remember from rooting my D2, but that was a while ago... lol
    05-29-2011 04:32 PM
  24. stetsonaw's Avatar
    yeah, leave out the # keys, i put those there to show what your prompt should look like. And yes, once you are in shell, when you put a command in and hit enter, it will repeat it to you, basically to let you know the command completed, otherwise you will get a syntax error of sorts.

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