    Make sure to have any antivirus software turned off or else it will detect it and put it in the virus chest. Also when you are rooted use from manager and flash can for the LG connect.

    Sorry, I am a complete noob to all this and am unsure if I just misread your second sentence or what but I didn't understand it. Could you explain it please like I'm dense?? Again, sorry I am just beginning to learn. Tomorrow I'll make sure to remove the antivirus off and try the rooting process again. Thank you for your patience and assistance.

    alright follow my instructions in the op. Once you are rooted install rom manager from the play store. Next hit the top button where it says flash clockworkmod recovery. A menu will pop up, choose the one that says LG Connect.

    This doesnt sound good ill let shabby know he may be able to pull an update.zip together for you, if not I don't know from here.

    Can you do anything from the cwm menu?

    DO NOT DO A FACTORY RESET YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DATA.

    Try wiping your cache and dalvik cache, then reboot it may help.

    I don't think so, every time I try to reboot system, it just freezes on rebooting. Were you able to use cwm recovery at all? I already did a factory reset and that didn't help, really doesn't matter if I lose my data.

    Did you do the factory reset from cwm?

    I dunno how the other poster did it, but I used Super Manager from the market. It's app manager lets you uninstall whatever. No more NASCAR, w00t!

    you could just use titanium backup... its recommended to backup your apps with and is a must for any rooted device.

    I was able to root it by going back and forth from ROOT then back to ROOT SHELL, and it worked just fine. The SuperOneClick app never froze, so I clicked the ROOT button after it said the shell was rooted, and it worked. Easier then expected.
    Thank you so much!

    It may have just froze for me, my computer is dated.
