OK !

I have made a modified version according to the suggestions from forum members . The busybox left out , and now it is using the superuser app .You need the uploaded zip file from the original post .

C:\rootgt540v20b>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagains

C:\rootgt540v20b>adb shell

uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
# cd /system/xbin
cd /system/xbin
# ln -s /system/bin/su su
ln -s /system/bin/su su
# reboot
reboot

You should wait for this part until the phone fully up , because when you type su the superuser app should be come up on phone's screen and you need to allow it .

C:\rootgt540v20b>adb shell
$ su
su
# id
id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root)

Thanks for the cooperation to everybody !

Method 1: This method doesn't work on my LG GT540 Android V2.1 as there is no 'Enable Root Permission' inside 'Module Test' --> 'Stability Test'

Method 2: The rootgt540.zip also didn't work well too as these are the message prompt in cmd

C:\rootgt540>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthe
cage
error: device not found

C:\rootgt540>adb shell chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
error: device not found

C:\rootgt540>adb shell /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
error: device not found

C:\rootgt540>adb wait-for-device


Method 3: Install z4root.1.3.0.apk into your phone and Root it , this method does work for me and i am able to remove some default apps from my phone and save up a lot more memory space
See: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=833953

Think everyone should try all these methods and don't give up. :unsure:

Want to root your LG GT540?

Here's how! ;)

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. :D

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

Just a suggestion from a complete newbe, would it not be a good idea to edit the original post to say that 'phones updated to 2.1 will not have the, 'Enable Root Permission' option available? This would perhaps end the, "I don't have the 'Enable Root Permission' option" type posts. At the moment people have to read through 8 pages to finally reach that conclusion.

I have my asbestos suit on!
