Just make sure you install the right whitelist app, as in the one for 1.5/1.6

Since there is root for this device, are there chances there might appear custom roms for the GT540? becaus i would like the modaco rom on this device!

You'll have to run android 2.2 on your phone, then it's possible. But on Android 2.1 there are also some apps2sd available i think, don't be sure of that tough.

Certain apps require rooting, such as using it as a Wi-Fi hotspot, root explorer and a bunch of other useful software. That's about it.

hi there,

im a totally noob at the android technology, but i've readed a lot of read me's and stuff to understand what ur talking about.
well the problem i have is:
when i connect my phone to the pc, the android SDK manager cant find my device. does i need the sdk programs to root my lg? i get the 'ok' msg after i enabled root, but dunno what to do next.
maybe some1 can explain me the next steps to finally root the lg?
would be really nice. i rereaded the last 4 sites 3-4 times, but i dont know what u mean with whiteapps and stuff.

:lol:

thanks

Hi,

LG has patched the root method in the OP during some of the firmware updates. Right now, if you can't find "Enable Root Permission" or am having trouble installing the superuser app, you should give Universal Androot a try. It roots your phone as well as install the superuser app.

A Superuser app grants apps permission to access the phone's root. Apps that have been granted permission are said to be in the whitelist, I think.

You don't really need to have to use AndroidSDK, if you just want to root your GT540 phone.

If you can't connect your phone to the computer, you most likely don't have the drivers installed. Get LG PC Suite IV from somewhere since the Official Site doesn't really give you a download link, you'll have to google it.

Hey,

thanks for the answer.

i got all ready the LG software, and i can connect to my pc too. thats not the problem :lol:

in the first post at this thread, paul says we would see the root status via ADB. i read at wikipedia whats "ADB" could be ( B) ), and wiki says i need the SDK base for ADB. well, however.
i will try the software u wrote and give u feedback.

second: the root status should be enabled. after i type the password i have permission to change the user and root status. after i check "Enable Root Permission", i'll get the "ok" message for password accepted, but when i reboot my phone...well... its easily gone.

thanks and best regards
