    Lol it would probably be harder to find someone on the optimus v forums that isn't rooted. Go to settings>about phone and scroll down to where it says baseband. What baseband is your phone?

    I agree, rooting is easy, and awesome, provided you can follow directions. Read all the stickies. Make backups. If you figured out how to get to ac forums, you're half way there. If you run into problems, just search the forums, someone else probably had the same issue. If you get stuck, just ask for help. Pretty much everyone I've seen on here has been cool and helpful.

    Good luck!

    zv4 very very nice, i wouldnt recomend upgrading thats for sure. you can root with an app without a computer, i honestly just rooted my girlfriends zv4 earlier tonight after dinner lol.

    Also if you have a computer and a usb cable with some adb skills, or can even follow directions really well these phones are actually really hard to ruin software wise. noobs are coming back from soft/hard bricks all the time it seems like these days.

    There's an app called Gingerbreak, it's very easy to root with that

    With zv5, and zv4, you can use gingerbreak.apk
    Heres a link to the gingerbreak thread:
    Scroll down the page to the end of the first post, then click one of the download links.
    Theres two ways you could do this:
    • go to that link on your phone and download it
    • or use your computer and then move the file to your sdcard.

    After its on your sdcard use a file manager like fx file manager and find the app and click on it and it will ask if you want to install it, after its installed open it and click root. If it takes longer than 10 mins pull the battery and try again.


    Hope this helps - Phatninja55
