Hey all- two questions:
1) It seems like this is a pretty safe way to root- I mean, you would have to do something really wacky during the process to potentially brick the phone, right?
2)Am I to understand from an earlier post that there is a recovery function built into this phone as stock (boot with correct keys depressed & you get a recovery menu)?
Sorry- have a rooted Nook color but still pretty new to this and have never used adb!
2. Yes, there is a recovery function built in. In you screw up the phone, there is a chance you can get it back with the built in recovery. The built in recovery has a couple of limitations though, one is that you can only use it to flash genuine LG updates. This means that in order to install third party roms, you'll need a need custom recovery function. There's a link to one in the main V forums.

Hi Great tutorial! One thing I would do though is tell them some where in the description. To download the attachment at the bottom cause I for one didnt see it and since it wasn't in the instructions anywhere didnt download it. So I couldnt get the su commands to work and it was driving me crazy till I read a few posts and realized I needed the attachment or maybe I'm just an ***! LOL (good possibility)
also anyone not knowing where the spaces go in the commands? Should just copy and paste word for word each command. thats what I did and it worked perfectly! Thanks again!

In short, no. Rooting will not do anything special to your phone, but it is the gateway to be able to do such things.

I tried that but it does not completely move the app to the SD card, just 3/4 of it. i would not mind this if the Internal Memory was not less than 200mb. what will i need to do after rooting the device?
(I thought having a bigger memory card meant you can have more apps to have at the same time) hopefully this is not a permanent case, i saw that moving to SD card was not an option back 2.1 i doubt 2.3 is going to have installing apps in SD option that would be cool though.

I was able to root from Linux. Instead of Step 3, above, do the following:
First, unzip the SuperOneClick zip file and copy psneuter to the directory with adb. I used version 1.6.5
Now run these commands from the directory with adb:
./adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp
./adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/psneuter
./adb shell /data/local/tmp/psneuter
You can now continue with Step 4

EDIT:nevermind. i guess i did not save the sdk to c:\android like i thought i did. silly me :P
when i try to push su it says "failed to copy 'su' to '/system/bin/su': read-only file system.
same thing when i try pushing busybox.
what am i doing wrong?

If it really is bricked, you can always try the unbricking method posted for the Optimus S. The process is similar for the V. Here's the link:
Unbrick your phone
There is one important thing. In step 15, don't use the S nandroid dump the forum links to, use the V stock dump provided by takehull in the V forum.

Hey there, thanks for the work on this. I'm on an Optimus V with stock ROM, version Android 2.2.1, here's what I'm getting:
From "adb shell"
# ls -l /system/bin/busybox
ls -l /system/bin/busybox
-r-xr-xr-x root root 1926944 2011-02-26 17:18 busybox
# ls -l /system/bin/su
ls -l /system/bin/su
-rwsrwxr-x root root 26264 2011-02-26 17:18 su
From terminal on the droid:
The file permissions look fine to me, anyone have any ideas?
Needed to select Notification type: Notification (instead of Toast) in the Superuser app.
