    I'm getting my Optimus V in the mail, in three days and my son is going to root ( what ever that means ) the phone for me, and told me I need to become a member of OV forum.

    Any tricks, tips and things I should know?

    Welcome to the community! I suggest you stick with IHO roms for now if you want stability and full functionality. As for recovery, I would suggest Bob's recovery. If you ever get confused, feel free to ask for help, we're all happy to help each other out.

    Exactly what he said.

    DO NOT USE ROM MANAGER

    And not only IHO, try Harmonia 1.7 as well. Cyanogenmod isn't for 'every'body.

    By that I mean, some people don't understand the settings, and differences.

    ROM Manager can and will **** your phone. Do not use it. Refer to this lovely guide that LeslieAnn had made for both the old and the new Optimus Vs (Commonly known as OV)
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...tart-here.html

    Read and follow the guide word for word, and you have a rooted LG Optimus V

    Welcome aboard! Once you go Android you don't go back, especially if you root. I'm impressed you are taking the plunge right from the get go! Kudos.

    Ditto on what has been said, people are always very helpful on these boards.

    also, it cannot be said enough, DO NOT USE ROM MANAGER
