    I rooted my Optimus V the other night (new 2 weeks ago, running 2.2.2) using Gingerbreak and, though it took a few tries, it did work and now TiBu, Superuser and anything on my phone has root access, but I haven't been able to get a recovery on it.

    I've tried ROMtools and SuperOneClick on my comp; with SuperOne, my first shell root attempt runs well until it says 'running psneuter' and then returns FAILED. Any attempts after that only get to the line 'chmod psneuter' then says error: closed. With ROMtools, when I have it check for root, the first time it just pops up a $, any subsequent attempts return the same 'error: closed' message as SuperOne until I reboot the phone.

    What does the 'error:closed' message mean and why does my computer have a hard time gaining root when the phone works the way it should? Could it be the drivers? Installing them has been the only part that has so far been 100% smooth so far. Is there something else I need to do? Phone is in debug mode.

    Any help is appreciated...Thanks!!!
    I had the same problem.. juss flash a recovery with terminal emulator here's how :

    1.) use es file explorer and place the "flash_image" file (below) and paste it to /system/bin and set permission to "rwxr xr w"

    2.) place recovery in root folder of sdcard and name it "vrecovery.img"

    3.) open terminal emulator and type in the following commands

    su

    flash_image recovery /sdcard/vrecovery.img

    reboot recovery

    4.) Then you'll automatically boot into recovery


    I was in the same situation as you before, and it took my whole Saturday to figure this thing out, when no else didnt guide me through.

    I'll attached the newest CWM recovery as well as the flash_image ... Hope this helps

    After using GingerBreak and you see a superuser app in the launcher , your rooted. Also the file attached above is compatible with the new OV screen like mine. Just Flash JerryScript's ROM its the best

    P.S. ROMtools doesnt work in rooting the OV (in my experience)

    Worked perfectly, took 10mins (setting permissions was a bit tricky).

    Thank you so much for finding a solution, explaining clearly and posting it quickly!

    Please do yourself a favor and learn how to do this the manual way. This automated tool will only lead you to being lazy and not understanding how to fix things when you break it. Now up top of this here forum is some posts stickied, read them understand them then root and flash a rom to your phone.

    This tool is extremely out of date and will likely cause you major problems if you use it on newer Optimus V phones.

    Do not use it, and please, no one post a link as it will just create major support issues.
