    I get an error out of memory when using poot. I tried freeing some up... no luck... is there something else I can try?

    Does this only work with Dolphin browser or Opera ?

    i was watching a youtube video on this today.

    in the video he says you need to download dolphin. he also downloads and installs poot 1st, then ministro 2nd. this video was done 6 months ago. it's pretty much the same info here. i haven't done it yet b/c i'm still debating whether i'm gonna get an optimus v or elite. prob gonna go w/ the elite. then after i root, download the tether app from https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id.wifi.tether

    There's a pretty cool ROM i wanna try to flash, too. http://androidforums.com/elite-all-t...vm-sprint.html

    But, this is all new to me, like literally in the past 24 hours I've decided that I may upgrade to a smartphone b/c my Mantra is giving me issues and VM keeps messing up the customer service. I still have the $25 plan so I think I'm gonna just do it since the elite still works on that plan. So I'm still super new to this. I also wanna know how to revert back to the stock ROM should anything happen w/ a custom ROM so I can get a replacement from VM b/c if you Root and flash a ROM, you void the warranty, and if the ROM gets messed up, I wanna revert back to the stock ROM so as to "unvoid" the warranty. So still learning. But, I think I'm gonna go w/ the elite over the v.

    Anyway, hope this helps, Kegan.

    In superuser, it's been sitting on "gaining root access" and "working..." for about five minutes now. Do I just let it go or is something wrong with the installation? Thanks.

    First off this method was created by giantpune of android forums and I take no credit. This method is listed as beta for the time being but as far as I can tell it works fine. Ive used it on my optimus elite without issue as have many other elite owners. But for the sake of saying so,what you do with your device is up to you. If you brick it not following the guide (with this method I do not see how you could..but anything is possible), you are responsible.

    Prerequisites : New elite owners should update their device with the LG update before rooting. This will prevent the need to re-root after update. Users who have rooted with any other root method who have returned to stock root using the jcase root method should update using the LG update to prevent the need to reroot after update. Otherwise anyone using any other root method including jcase method,does not need to root using this method. YOU ARE ALREADY ROOTED. Why use this??

    Step 1 : Download Ministro II.apk provided below and install it. Let it update and get what it needs.

    Step 2 : Download poot.apk listed below and start it. Click "press here to poot"..it happens almost instantaneously. Probably wont notice much except the log output.

    Step 3 : Click "get superuser". This will open google play store to download superuser. If play store doesnt load it correctly,stalls,or just goes to default play store home screen,type superuser in search prompt and it will provide the superuser download page. Install superuser,open it and move to the info tab click tap for updates and let it update,depending on your connection you may get a fail. Dont worry try it again. Superuser should update the binary for su and you are pretty much done. You can download root check if you like from play store to verify. Or you can use the poot built-in root check. screen shot is provided below to show you the output for a successful root. After root enjoy and if you meet giantpune on android forums or here. thank this individual for providing this extremely simple root method. Trust me,using the other root methods vs this is a task. So a thank you would be deserved.
    i use this method i have the guide to put the clockwork mod recovery on tht phone

    delete crappy stock apps that came on the phone, have access to certain apps you otherwise wouldnt, in general if you dont know whether or not you want to root your phone than you probably wouldnt have much use for it.

    I know your posst is a bit old but go with the elite I had the V and the elite though not much better has a few things the v does not so it is worth it

    Dude the elite is ten thousand times better than the v, what are you talking about? I just had a v, and I can honestly say this elite is 10,000 times better.

    I know this is a bit late, but if you didn't get advice you can download superuser from the market.
