    If someone has this file, can you please share it? If the user requests it, it is their responsibility as far as what they do with it.

    When did you buy the phone and from where? I'm trying to find out what type of screen you have. These phones were made with two different screens requiring different drivers. You have to help us help you.

    I don't have a ZV4.cab file. I've never messed around with basebands. There are a few people on this forum who are well versed in the process. SammyZ is one of them. You should send him a PM.

    Thanks for posing this information. I have an LG Optimus V and I am hating not having enough internal memory and the apps that were on the phone when I bought it. Google Maps is just outrages in size and not being able to put it on the SD card is a pain, and Mapquest is a better app..

    Very very much a newbie here, and I'm embarassingly already stumped.

    I'm following the original post on this thread in order to try to root my LG Optimus V.

    First, under "things I'll need" - I downloaded and installed the Sun JDK. All good. Yay!

    Next, I downloaded the Windows SDK bundle. I unzipped it into the c:/ folder -- it's called "adt-bundle-windows-x86_64". Inside that is "adt-bundle-windows". Inside that are two folders for "eclipse" and "sdk".

    So the next thing the instructions tell me to do is open the SDK manager. Presumably, based on the instructions, for me that would be "c:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64\SDK Manager.exe", but no such file exists. Nor in c:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64\adt-bundle-windows either. Nor in the sdk folder inside of that. It's not obviously in "tools" or "platform-tools" inside THAT, either.

    Did I install the Android SDK properly? Simply by copying and pasting the files into c:/, is that installing? If so, where is the SDK manager?

    You need none of that now. Just Download an app called gingerbreak to root(:

    Go to settings about phone software. Phone model should say vm670zv4 if zv4.

    I know it's been 2 years since this thread started, but I just rooted my VM Optimus V late last night. Thanks so much Revolution Red! On the first try I didn't get the message that it rooted correctly. I went ahead with the rest of the steps, and nothing happened when I ran super user. I then did a hard reset and started over. I still didn't get the message but I followed the rest of the steps. I then remembered that I didn't install titanium back up. Once I did that and ran that first, it worked! Thanks so much. Now I just need to install the best ROM for the V.
    One more thing, can you point me in the right direction to get my Thrive tablet back to 3.0 from ICS? Half my apps freeze up now for some reason; I believe it has to do with the tablet not recognizing internet and GPS sometimes.

    Well I tried what is written here and it too awhile to get to the point that I couldn't get SuperOneClick to run to completion or to the point that said it had temp root access. I tried everything I could think of from rebooting the phone to rerunning SuperOneClick (about 10 times) and still not luck. Didn't do any damage but didn't get it rooted either. I used the options on SuperOneClick as mentioned and also tried the Auto option neither worked. Right after rebooting the phone it went a little farther but then stopped dead. When I run SuperOneClick a second time it just hangs up at the same place

    Just thought you'd like to know.

    this thread is ancient
    superoneclick only works on the older OV's
    try gingerbreak, it's supposed to work on all but the newest version of the phone.
    in the sticky posts at the top of the rooting roms and hacks forum, are up-to-date methods.
