    The only other thing i can think of would be to use an Optimus S rom, instead of an Optimus V Rom, and then follow the guides in the Optimus S forums on how to achieve root...
    That's what we've been doing. Using stock sprint zvd

    Oh by the way, I don't think I can use a custom rom, because I have to have stock recovery.

    Well not very many tried... I think it's like 3.5/4... Andrew made it to rooted zvd with working data but couldn't get zvj to root.

    Bottom line if you want to try it you should write down or otherwise backup your AAA key and MIN. HA key is the same for all OV.

    You can go to ZVD from any version of VM firmware.

    An additional step that I like to include is usually using qpst to make a .Qcn backup. It just helps in getting the m.ip profiles back easier after the sprint firmware nerfs them.

    this is what i do after writeing the .nvs file to zvd to get data back

    To Restore Data on LS670 Firmware:

    1: Install anycut.apk
    2: Run anycut and "create shortcut"-"Activity"-"LG HIDDEN DATA" and hit ok
    3: Return to desktop and open the shortcut
    4: go into CDG2 Data Settings and change PPP CARRIER from Sprint to Undetermined
    5: Hit back and the phone will reboot
    6: Open Qpst service programing and hit Load from file
    7: Select the .qcn file you saved durring prep
    8: Select write to phone and enter your spc
    9: The phone will reboot
    10: Open LGNPST and Select "Phone Setting" Enter your Spc hit ok then Read
    11: Close lgnpst and open DFS and enter your Spc and click SPC
    12: Click the Programing Tab then the Mobile IP TAB and click Read
    13: On the first Profile Uncheck the boxes next to Enter value in HEX for both AAA Shared Secret and HA Shared Secret
    14: Clear anything there and click write current profile settings
    15: go to profile 3 and Uncheck the Enter Value in HEX box for AAA Shared Secret and Copy the value
    16: Go To profile 2 and Paste that value into AAA Shared Secret box and Enter Vmug33k for HA shared Secret
    17: Hit Write current profile settings and switch to the data tab next to mobile ip and hit read
    18: under HDR AN and HDR AN Long you'll see YOURMEID@mdata.vmobl.com with PWD boxes under them
    19: Paste your AAA Key that you copied earlier into both pwd boxes and hit write

    Reboot Phone and you will have Data
    Just to make this easier to find. This is how I restore data and Andrew has had success with it too.

    Oh.... Then why change to sprint zvj baseband? You can flash and run the roms just no data witch doesn't matter to you

    I just want to thank sammyz12 and all those who came up with this.
    I want to thank thewraith420 for the encouragement and additional info/help.
    This was a blast to do and the rewards are great. Being able to run stock GB as a base is much more fulfilling than the froyo stock.
    I will endorse this and say it is worth doing. Even if your phone isn't bricked, still worth changing the firmware. The info in this Topic is more than sufficient and there are people who will assist you.
    Become part of those who decided to live outside of the box of Virgin.
    Try this and become a Sprint user on a Virgin account.

    I guess. However the instructions are almost fool proof, so as long as people followed them in their format.

    Yep mainly just need to make sure you save the .nvs file and I like to keep a .qcn file from qpst. When all is said and done you also have just about the best unbrick method there is via emode lgpnst.

    Yes, you instructed me to do that when I done mine. Great advice, actually it should be implemented. It's definitely a must have for either firmware.

    I just don't see the point, unless your bricked.

    The devs here already have a ton of ROMs for us to play with. Pretty much all the cm7 roms run perfect.

    Unless there are benefits besides being able to run a few more ROMs?
