    I don't know if there is a new exploit for the update. But i've heard of that screwing things up. And the factory reset will only put you back to stock after the update.

    Might be worth it though, the phone has been acting kinda squirelly since the update. However, unless I or someone on here has an epiphany, I may be stuck until the anticipated Gingerbread update. Whenever that is.

    I'm stuck after a suspected Verizon update.

    (for some background - I have rooted many Xs, DINCs. Have a BS in Computer Science and work as an IT consultant. Oh, I also rooted my Nook Color....)

    Got a Revo for my son in July, rooted it using ADB - used wifi tether and adfree. Talked a friend into getting two Revos for herself and daughter - can't root. Noticed adfree and wifi tether stopped working on my son's phone and it appears to no longer be rooted.

    Can't get past the $ prompt. Also tried s1c.

    Problem seems to be the same as Speedtrap63 is having.

    Any choice but to wait for a new exploit or an update to 2.3?

    Is there any way to stop the automatic updates from Verizon?

    Factory restore didn't allow me to root either....

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    It's a waiting game. The update breaks root and blocks rerooting somehow. There is no exploit or solution yet.

    I'm not holding my breath for 2.3 either. Rumors of a Revo2 in October are troubling, HTC Vigor, LG Revolution 2 Arriving With HD Screens? Stratosphere NOT Galaxy S 2?

    If true, I doubt they will spend much development time and money on our Revo. But keep the faith!

    Connect your phone in charge only mode to install the LG Bootstrapper and drivers, or grab the LG Universal Drivers here or here.

    Change your USB Mode to Internet Connection
    Go into Settings/Applications/Development and ensure USB Debugging is turned on
    If all goes according to plan, you should see the ADB Ladybug icon in your notification bar

    I updated the Rootzwiki page with the same info found below.

    Busybox actually comes installed by LG on the Revo, how awesome is that??

    Download the rageagainstthecage binary
    Download the SU binary
    Move these files to the same directory your adb.exe is in.

    Code:
    The > and # characters below illustrate the prompt 
    you should have, if you have the $ when you go into adb shell, 
    exit out and type 'adb usb' then go back into adb shell and 
    you should see the #
    Open Command prompt (either use the Windows Key+R and type cmd or start/run, then type cmd)
    32-bit users: >cd c:\program files\android\android-sdk\platform-tools
    64-bit users: >cd c:\program files (x86)\android\android-sdk\platform-tools
    Or >cd (whatever directory adb is in)

    >adb devices (verifies you are connected)
    >adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
    (if the above command fails due to read-only, type 'adb usb' then 'adb root' to validate root status, then 'adb devices' again to verify connection)
    >adb push su /data/local/temp/su
    >adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage
    >adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage
    >adb shell (If this gives you a $ prompt instead of a # prompt, type 'su', if that fails, 'exit', 'adb usb' like above.)
    #mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
    #busybox cp /data/local/temp/su /system/bin/su
    #chmod 6755 /system/bin/su

    Verify the file is in place w/correct permissions

    #cd /system/bin
    #ls -l *su
    -rwsr-sr-x root root 26248 2011-05-29 01:09 su
    (permissions name access filesize date time filename)

    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/rage

    continue with commands
    #reboot

    Download and install SuperUser from the Market

    Thanks Zennmaster, _mrbirdman_ for finding the linux routes and birdman for helping me out, and droidx8971 for helping me find all the information possible!

    Now go bug XDA to create a Revo forum!


    So I tried this method, and I keep getting to the adb shell command and it gives me the $ prompt instead of the # prompt, so I type 'su' and it says 'su: permission denied' so I type 'exit' and 'adb usb' and all that, and it keeps giving me the 'su: permission denied' message and right back to the $ prompt.

    Please help me ASAP. I am running Win7 64-bit and my REVOLUTION is running the newest Android 2.3.4 software that just came out a few days ago. Please reply soon, I have been trying several methods to root my phone over the course of a few months now and exactly ZERO methods have worked so far, including the SuperOneClick method that everyone seems to love. This is the first android phone I have tried to root.

    Would you rather a 1 click or through adb?
