    Hello, I am new to droids & this is my first attempt at rooting. I believed that I was following the right instructions, but the result was very bad. This ([How-To] Root LG Optimus S) is the place where I found the directions, but after the first section where the phone disconnects & reconnects, I typed adb shell and got the message error: device not found. I have since figured out that I should be using the directions from here ([How-To] Rooting LS670ZVD/ZVH (100% automated) + ZVJ (automated)). My big problem is that I cannot get my computer to recognize my phone. I have uninstalled & re-installed the usb drivers & when I turn on the storage function, the computer recognizes the device, but when I turn it off it does not (debugging is enabled). The phone says that it is connected regardless of the settings, but the command prompt continues to give the error of device not found. I am sorry for bothering you, but your posts seem so incredibly nice & helpful & I have looked everywhere I could, literally spent hours searching for what to do with no luck. Any advice you may have would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Sorry, the other thread was closed...

    i have followed these steps exactly and still can't boot into cwm recovery on my lg optimus q. my Q is rooted with rom manager installed and cwm recovery version 5.0.2.8. i have tried to flash 5.0.2.7. to no avail. i just want to be able to make a backup before i flash a new rom.

    Same boat as tribulationwolf, never had an issue like this that I can't get passed. Optimus Q from Tracfone. I have the phone rooted, but just will not boot into recovery even after installing CWM 5.0.2.7 manually. with adb shell or "recoveryflash" method. Just stays showing LG logo until I reboot. Have even tried to boot into recovery with adb reboot recovery and same end result.

    I will keep digging and will post if I am able to get passed this.

    Edit: Nevermind, finally got it. I just re-downloaded a 5.0.2.7 from another location "http://androidarea51.com/***-all-things-root-***-113/clockworkmod-lg-optimus-slider/" and installed via adb shell, and rebooted into recovery from adb shell and all was well. I don't know what took me so long to just try another source for the cwm 5.0.2.7, but it's working so that's all I care about lol. Thanks anyway.

    Hi - I am still not rooted - finally got the phone to be recognized by the computer so that Daemon would run and just not sit there like it was doing for a while, but now nothing installs. I am just getting a bunch of messages that say things are not found. Any guidance is appreciated.

    Forget it - my anti-virus was messing things up and the zergrush file wasn't copying over. I think I got it fixed.

    Ok, first things first...thank you for this thread.

    Now, I have gone through and step by step done each of the three things. Rooted, then Custom Restore, then NANDroid, though I did not know what I was doing as I was doing them.

    Terminal didn't scare me because way back when I used to play in UNIX, and like DOS and hate that it's only in Windows now as a "pretend" thing, so I got the terminal lines right first time out (yay).

    So, now that I have done all of this (though my superuser says it's outdated and fails every time I try and let it update itself internally) and in theory have a backup of my phone on the SD card in it...where is this backup so I can copy or move it off of the phone...both to free up some space on the SD card, and more importantly, to secure it in another 2 locations, so that I still have it if something happens to the SD card.

    And...can I delete it from the card once I have copied it elsewhere, or does it HAVE to stay there?

    Now that I have rooted the phone I installed (before I backed it up...bad of me, I know) "Wifi Tether for Root Users" from the google play store, tested it, and got it working. One of my two goals accomplished. My other goal was to remove the Virgin Mobile bloatware that comes with the phone (LG Optimus Slider, of course)...how do I go about doing this safely? Is there something I should NOT remove? There are things on there like Poynt, SCVNGR, Virgin Mobile Live, etc...stuff I will not use and do not need. How do I get rid of them now?

    Is there any other benefit to my having rooted the phone? I am fairly satisfied with the phone and do not wish to change the way it operates if it will negatively impact the phone at all...I don't want a later OS that will run sluggish or crash, I do not need pretty graphics or silly noises added in, I just need a fully functional smart phone...and I needed it to be able to be a hotspot because I am hoping to end up with a Nexus 7 soon, and will need the ability to make use of it away from my home wifi.

    Thanks in advance...

    I don't know what happened but my recovery screen is now just the LG screen

    The process seems to complete just fine as I get no errors, but the recovery either didn't write correctly or isn't booting correctly.

    I've done it twice exactly as was outlined in the guide and got the same result both times. the phone itself loads fine, but the reboot recovery command doesn't work and the Home + Vol Down + Power goes to the LG screen. Any suggestions?

    Edit - Redownloaded the file (though I couldn't find a different source), reformatted the SD card and then tried to flash again via terminal emulator and same results.

    Edit 3 - Tried to get it into fastboot so I could flash recovery via adb shell but the "adb reboot bootloader" command resulted in the phone resetting and that's it. When I tried to "reboot bootloader" via terminal emulator just got a reset.

    You need to make sure you have the drivers installed correctly and your phone is connected as charge only and usb debugging is on

    Okay I need a way to change the windows based batch files located in that zip file and execute them in an android based format that can be executed by an android terminal emulator in order to run those commands safely on my slider.

    Default Re: [How-To} Root, Custom Recovery, Backup, Flash ROMs

    Background:
    I have a Optimus Slider that is rooted. I bricked my Optimus V with clockwordmod and am now paranoid.
    I want to create a backup so that I can recover if necessary. I am not trying to install new ROMs.
    Question:
    Can I create a backup by using the Power | Volume Down | Home button trick with out flashing or getting a custom recover?
    Do I have to first flash the VM701_recovery.img file?
    What is the advantage of a custom recovery?

    Thanks for making this available.

    Requirements:
    -Make sure you have a good charge on your phone. I suggest starting with a full charge.
    -From the home screen of your phone press Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > check mark "USB debugging". This is necessary to root the phone.
    -You need to download from the market (free)

    Instructions:
    Root
    1) On your computer, download and install on your PC
    2) On your computer, download .
    3) On your computer, make a folder right on your desktop and name it "fun" or anything you want.
    4) On your computer, using 7zip, winzip, winrar or whatever tool you want, take the contents out of Lg_Esteem_Root.zip that you downloaded in step 2, and place those contents into your "fun" folder you created in step 3.
    5) Plug your USB cable into the computer and then into your phone.
    6) Assuming you followed instructions and enabled USB debugging, you should see an icon in your notification status bar on your phone that says "USB Debugging". Pull down notification status bar and select "charge only"
    7) Inside of the "fun" folder, double click a file called run.bat ...

    You should see the following on your computer screen:

    Does anyone know how I can find out which commands the run.bat executes, so I can manually execute them with terminal emulation?

Instead, after rooting, can we just use Titanium Backup to remove some of the VM installed apps? Or if not - and a custom ROM needs to be installed, what is a good one? Is Harmonia compatible with the Slider Optimus? I haven't really seen a list of ROMs for the slider phone. I don't want to loose any phone functions due to not fully developed ROMs.
    My daughter wants to sell her VM Optimus Slider phone. We did get it rooted, though did not put a new ROM on it - still kept the original VM ROM.
    In anticipation of selling the phone, she did a factory reset/wipe from the Android menu instead of from the CWM Recovery. Now, it only boots into recovery mode. Are we hosed? Any chance to get it back to booting up all the way?
