Drop it on the SD card, download Apps Installer from the market, start Apps Installer, install the superuser app.

This doesn't seem to work with the 10D_00 firmware, I get the Ok message, but the apps that requires Root says they can't access SU... ;)

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here... I thought it was just a matter of enabling Root and it would all work, but alas...

For whatever reason it now seems like the system/bin/su directory is missing...

Ok, figured it out, had to do adb remount and it's ok again.

Sorry, my bad, in case of that I used the superuser whitelist from here http://www.lg-phones...-eve-gw620.html but it requires that you download the android sdk as well, as you need the adb tool to install it. I just dropped the whitelist files in to the /tools/ directory and ran the supplied batch installer.

If you can't install the whitelist app, then you have to make the flash memory in the phone writeable by starting ADB in a command shell and type adb remount and you should be able to install the whitelist app no problem. Not sure how to install Superuser 2.1 though...

i've done all the steps for rooting and the ok pop up after i entered the password. but how come i cannot use any program that require superuser.
and also i noticed that after entering password in module test it was instructed to perform a reboot, how do we reboot our phone? do turning off and on again are enough?

First you need to install the Android SDK, run the adb remount command in the tools directory, then you need to find a whitelist app such as this one http://koushikdutta....r/Superuser.zip and then install that to make it all work. The whitelist app needs to be located in the same directory as adb.exe or it won't install.

TheLostSwede not everyone, especially new users can grasp what they need to do and trying to follow instructions in a forum can get confusing.
No need to insult the guy just a simple no to the video request would do.

You need to install the LG USB drivers or the phone won't connect to the PC. Download and install the data suite and modem drivers and you're good to go.

Did that already m8, well the usb drivers and other driver but not the PC suite as it is not on the LG download section for this phone.

So, does the phone connect to your system after you've installed the drivers? You also need to put the phone in USB debugging mode, otherwise you can't connect with adb.
