@shnuegums if you just installed the newest version of SDK, then you will need to put the files in the "platform-tools" folder. That can be a bit confusing, but once get the files in the right directory it should be pretty much copy and paste in the command prompt.

That is what I was missing for sure wish all the other sites I went to were just as simple. THANKS very much I will keep you updated on this forum if all goes well.

Also is there a particular rom you would recommend that will increase performance and battery life?

You really can't go wrong with the ROMs in the sticky posts. They are all good. The gingerbread ROM works, but zefie is still working out some of the bugs. I'm not sure if you can flash v 1.7 of ThundeROM with V9 firmware, so if you don't want to go to VC, then I would suggest nROM, Lego ROM, or if you can get your hands on ThundeROM v 1.6.2.

I have two Optimus S devices. One is running TR 1.6.2 and the other is on Lego ROM.

Just keep in mind that though some root processes may seem the same, they each may have diffrences. Just always read everything 2 times before you start. Then read it all over again as you go along. Never assume you "know" what the next step is. Enjoy root and good luck. Its always a blast with seeing what a cellphone can do.

+1 to kronosx1's comment. Make sure you have a reasonable understanding of the process. Have fun.

nand backup before flashing

Ok so I went through the steps of rooting and everything finished to what seemed to be a complete root

next I installed the market place superuser app

next installed the titanium backup

finally installed quick boot

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok I quick boot into recovery but I dont get the option to backup/restore

only four options as listed

reboot system now
apply sdcard:update.zip
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition

so what has gone wrong here? :confused:

Don't copy the '#' when copying the commands. When you typed 'su', the '$' changed to a '#' and this is good. The '#' signs listed in the commands to copy and paste represent the '#' that you got when typing 'su'. Copy and paste everything after the '#' and you'll be on track.
