Always use a root app or reboot app to get into recovery. Trust me, I soft-bricked my viper a....couple of times before I figured that one out. Happy modding!

    Actually I didn't step on anyone's toes. I just use a reboot app and no your recovery doesn't soft brick the phone. Instead of being pretentious u could read into my post and see the error that I myself made. And until there is a recovery that can properly do a Nand without an md5 mismatch get over yourself. Props for the recovery on a still experimental device, shut your mouth on the accusational statements.

    Easy with the language, we've been there and don't tolerate it here, nigel has been a lifesaver for this community, His statement of you stepping on a lot of toes, A- by definition is surely not pretentious, and b- 100% true, your's on the other hand, no need to tell someone dedicating time and effort who doesn't even OWN a viper, to shut their mouth. Stick around and sharpen up, or go elsewhere.

    Please take your 5 posts and just leave. There are some people working hard to get the bugs out of the "experimental" custom recovery we have and Nigel is working harder at that than anyone. We do not need anyone around here that is rude and inconsiderate about someone taking their free time and spending it to make our device better.

    Not to interrupt the conversation here, but can anyone who's willing to sacrifice root test to see if the method still works, I'm pretty sure it won't I'd just like to know so I can get to work on a workaround

    I'm sorry nigel that I did not include you in my thanks, but thank you very much for all that you have done as well! I am not on here as much as others but reading other posts I see that you have been a big help and do not even have a Viper...that is very commendable!

    trying to root using the method described in the OP (same as I used to root GB), but I get to shell root step #5 and it crashes when rooting....I get SU, but it won't update...tried the XDA-ICS root, but it failed also...any ideas?

    switching back to zvd. not impressed by ics.

    i plan on trying to root just to get rid of some bloatware, then gonna just hang out there for awhile. i have a question about using the exploit though.

    when i extract the rageagainstthecage. do i put all the files into the exploit folder or just the rageagainstthecage-arm5 . bin file in there?

    also any other dos or don'ts? i read about the recovery stuff, and just not 100% on whats going on there, im just gonna stick to de-bloating the stock rom
    thanks in advance

    You just need the .bin file if I remember right. As for recovery, a handful of people are still working on it, but I've yet to see any fully working results. Then again, it's been a while since I've been on either ac or af forums - that's actually what I came to check out, but saw your post and stopped by to respond. :-)

    I can confirm that this method does indeed root the LG Viper with ICS update installed.

    No z4root only works with 2.2.1 froyo phones/back. It was fixed with the second release of froyo

    I ended up going back to GB then rooting, then using Voodoo OTA root and then installing ICS and using Voodoo to restore root...
