You control which apps gonna get Root acces on the phone via Superuser apk, so the doubtful security apps cant get acces to sensitive thingies without allowing acces by u.

Piši postove na engleskom. Nije ti ovo HR forum, a i dobit ćeš brže odgovor. Iako si ga mogao i sam potražiti jer je već odgovoreno.
Koristi aplikaciju z4root. S njim i EuropeOpen ROM-om nećeš imati problema.

Translate:
Write in english in this forum. In that case, you'll get the answer more faster, and it would be appropriate cause this isn't a Croatian forum.
Use z4root application for rooting GT540 phone with EuropeOpen ROM 2.1.

Want to root your LG GT540?

Here's how! :D

The LG GT540 root is interesting in that it's very similar but not the same as the LG GW620 root, detailed here on XDA developers. For the GT540, LG introduced an additional level of security in the engineering application. It didn't really work out so well. B)

To enable Superuser access (root) on your GT540:

- Turn on the device and click the icon to open the phone dialler
- Enter the code '3845#*540#'
- Select the option 'Module Test', then 'Stability Test' then 'Enable Root Permission'
- You will now be prompted for a password - enter :SWIFT::GT540:
- A toast message will briefly appear saying 'OK' - your root access is now enabled!
- Reboot your device, and now when you connect via ADB, you'll see you have a root prompt (#).

You can now download and install ChainsDD's excellent Superuser app from here (I used the su-2.1-cd-unsecure version).

Job done! Enjoy! :P

Try method in the reference thread: http://android.modac...ference-thread/

Or try z4root or one of the other market apps

Rooting has nothing to do with the upgrade. It does not enable or disable the update. If you root on 1.6, when you upgrade or re-flash your rom you will need to do rooting again.
