    Ok just quick question how were you able to compile it? I always get a error with
    <sys/system_properties.h>
    file missing etc.

    Reason i ask is i need to see if i can get it to work better on the Samsung Transform this does work great on the LG VS670 Any pointers would be great thanks.

    *TESTING TESTING TESTING TESTING TESTING TESTING TESTING*

    WARNING
    Gingersnap (along with all other Android modifications) is experimental software and while I have made this as safe as possible, differences in operating environments and natural disasters can cause your device to become unusable. Please make sure you understand this important fact before downloading.

    Disclaimer
    Neither myself, Android Central or any other member of Android Central are responsible for any disasters that occur as a result of any hack or modification you perform on your device. Your use of this application is at your own risk!


    With that out of the way, I'd like to introduce you to the Gingersnap Root Utility. Gingersnap is a one-click root utility, much like SuperOneClick or Universal Androot.

    The nitty gritty: Gingersnap uses a modified version of the famous GingerBreak exploit to automatically root your Android-powered device and installs the necessary files to maintain a permanent root status.

    Pre-use Requirements:
    1) You need the .NET 4 Framework. Not the Client Profile, the full .NET 4 Framework.
    2) For some reason you need the Visual C++ 2008 redistributable installed. Don't ask me why.
    3) You need proper drivers for the LG Optimus V. Your video card doesn't work without drivers and neither will your phone.
    4) Your device needs to have USB debugging enabled.
    5) Gingersnap should be used ONLY on a fresh reboot of your device. If you don't know what this means, reboot your phone before using this utility!

    Credits:
    Gingersnap Utility: Me
    GingerBreak exploit: C-Skills (Sebastian)
    Autoroot shell script (com.sh): Droidxcon
    MAJOR thanks to jondevere for being my personal guinea pig!


    Think you're ready? The file is attached to this post.

    Changelog:
    Gingersnap V1.2 -- Initial release (05-19-2011)
    Gingersnap V1.2.1 -- Superuser.apk now installed to /data/app to allow future removals (05-21-2011)

    Source Code:
    The modified GingerBreak source code is attached to this post. The filename is gingerbreak-mod-gs-src.zip

    simply amazing nothing else i tried would take and i was so nervous to try this. i've bricked 3 opt. v's trying to root it with other methods, something always went wrong (i'm probably just an *****) BUT this worked in less than 5 min one click and it's done android 2.2.1 froyo on optimus v from v-mobile rooted success!!! thank you so much, pure genius!!!

    Just rooted my warranty replacement OV with Gingersnap. Outside of the tedious .NET installation, the processing was smooth as can be. Thanks to the developers!

    Worked like a charm. Had to download from a different source. I don't know the pass for your ftp. Other that that no problems. Thanks

    That's because I was being dumb and linked to the FTP server, which as you noticed won't work. Link fixed now, enjoy!
