    The downloads for windows that do not have a x64 will work.
    When I try to install the 64 bit version it says it is not a valid Win32 application. What do I do now ?

    Did you go to the oracle/sun website? it should detect your OS and offer you the correct version.
    btw, if you just want to root, gingerbreak from xda works well.
    if you need adb, you don't have to have or get the whole Android sdk, you can google around and find zipped downloads with just adb, fastboot,.and the .dll files needed to use those tools.

    I'm having several problems. First my computer keeps saying it can't install drivers, even though I have already installed them. Then I tried SuperOneClick, and it keeps saying (Not Responding). I would really like to root this phone, but my computer, for whatever reason, doesn't like my phone and won't connect to it ever.


    SuperOneClick says Waiting for Device and then just stops responding.

    superoneclick works on older ov's with froyo 2.2.1 but not on froyo 2.2.2
    gingerbreak works on newer ov's with froyo 2.2.2

    Amazing. I spent nearly 2 hours trying this method and failed. Then I tried this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...v-2-2-2-a.html.
    I took less than 10 minutes to root my optimus v phone ver. 2.2.2 in order to use "root explorer" to delete the accounts.db file so that i could reset the default google account without a factory reset. So yes, definitely use gingerbreak immediately if you have 2.2.2. Don't waste your time with the other method.

    (After entering the next line, adb shell, you should have a "#" prompt, if instead you see "$", SuperOneClick has not been able to gain access to your phone. Go Back to step 3 and try again).
    adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /system /system
    exit
    if you get an error, or your adb shell prompt is a $, you can't push to /system.

    I am a n00b with Android and have the following question. Are EVDO authorization credentials such as MIP/PPP username and password are set within OS, i.e. built-in into PPP daemon? If so, then rooting is required to modify those settings (for example, to use the firmware with another Carrier).

    Or are they stored separately, outside of- and external to Android OS? If, so rooting neither required, nor helpful to modify EVDO authorization credentials.

    Hi all,

    Finally wanting to root my V at least to get the crap apps off there that VM put on since I'm running out of space. I see this post was written almost a year ago. Are the steps in the OP still the best way to root my phone or are there newer or more updated steps I should follow.

    Thanks!

    Ive followed everydetail yet when I run Superoneclock it only gets me this far "chmod psneuter...
    error: closed

    FAILED" Any ideas?

    I may have accidentally accepted an OTA but cant be sure. I notice that this thread is a bit older and I just got my phone in september, could they have fixed the exploit?

    so does any one really know if the phone has to be activated to get root and other roms working. I have read thru the post and see some people say they have 1/2 way whatever that means. I have tried all meathods...(please dont suggest another i've tried it uless you currently have a NON ACTIVATED lg optimus V and your meathod worked) i have RAN, pushed, ginergreaker, psnerter, zergrush, superoneclick, etc. NO luck. im probably being stupid as i have rooted tons of other phones but never a pre paid that is not activated. I am not activating either.

    so ideas?

    I also have an Optimus V that is not activated. Can you please point me to the instructions you used to root it. I need explicit instructions since I have not owned a smart phone. Thanks

    I've updated my guide:

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...ustom-rom.html

    Feel free to suggest updates to make it clearer/easier. Activate needs to run on a FROYO ROM, Gingerbread won't work. Root & activate are independent of each other, root allows uninstalling crapware & installing a custom ROM.

    Should I activate the phone first and then do the rooting?

    Doesn't matter, just active before flashing to a Gingerbread ROM.
