Ok, my bad, it works just fine :lol:
Superuser isn't needed which is truly odd, but hey, who cares, we have root again!

As I told I only test it with vnc server and app2sd . It was a long day to find out this method . What was the solution about Barnacle . I've downloaded and failed to start .

If i root my gt540, is the process reversable.

So if i decide i want to unroot the device and have it all set back to how it was as standard is this possible, or is rooting just a one way process that cant be undone?

If it iss possible to unroot it, then how is this done?
And also once rooted, hwo do you set up apps2sd, cos i saw some tutorials on another site which say about having to go into bootloader mode etc.. which obviously you cant on the gt540. So was just wondering if you maanged to get apps2sd working then how it was done.

A stupid setting...
It's meant to be for 2.2, but go to settings and enable Skip wpa_supplicant and it works just fine

joestone I make this before i read your post, but i'm used Superuser.apk and i'ts work without problems.
Root Explorer works fine in r/w mode.
Btw It's no necessary to remount root partition, only system.

Can you tell more about app2sd. I don't have any info about this on LG Optimus.

Please type little manual how can i make this work.

Sorry , but at this time I didn't managed to revoke it , but of course it is a reversable process , because we simply copy files to the system. Of course later it can be an automated process which saves the original /system/bin folder and in case of uninstall will be restored . The original /system/bin folder should be saved .In the case of unroot it should be restored , the symlink should be deleted from /system/xbin and files from the /data/local/temp should be deleted . After reboot the phone is not rooted .

You need gscript lite from market . Download the app2sd script load it to the gscript and run it. It was made by polish guys . I will attach it . The same worked on 1.6 .The sdcard should be partitioned two parts first is a standard fat the second is an ext2 fs . You can do it with mini partition tool with a cardreader .the script mount the ext2 fs as internal storage .
How do you managed to use Superuser.apk ? What happens after reboot ?

The script should be :lol: change in app2sd , because finally it does not work . I have tested only check mode . Without root it drops permission denied . After root it worked .Sorry !

I tried also that method , push the superuser app to system/app , but after reboot it was unrooted. I did not change the permission to 755 on superuser app and after reboot the su tells me permission denied.

in my previous post i wrote how to do it. Before copying anything to the /system/bin folder save the contents of it to the sdcard . The unroot process is to delete the files we copied to the /system/bin and /system/xbin folder and of course the /data/local/tmp folder's content.

Titanium Backup isn't happy, I get an error message that says "BusyBox works but the "su" command does not elevate to root: "whoami" reports "whoami: unknown uid 10053" instead of root/uid 0. Any ideas?

I will reflash my phone again to start from the begining . I will try borovaka method with the Superuser.apk , maybe that way there will be less problems .

The root method according to your suggestions :
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
adb push su /data/local/tmp/
adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
adb shell
$chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
$chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/busybox
$chmod 755 /system/app/Superuser.apk
$ cd /data/local/tmp
$ ./rageagainstthecage
adb shell
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 / (maybe this not neccesseary)
# cd /data/local/tmp
# ./busybox cp su /system/bin
# ./busybox cp busybox /system/bin
# cd /system/bin
#chmod 4755 su
#chmod 4755 busybox
#su
#id
the id should be 0 and gid should be 0
#busybox --install /system/bin
#cd /system/xbin
#ln -s /system/bin/su su
#cd /system/bin
#reboot
after the phone reboot
adb shell
$su
#


Feel free to correct it .

This way work great for me.
All apps who i am trying works fine such as Root Explorer, VNC server etc.

p.s. joestone Are you tried method who you wrote? I don't know is this possible to push directly to /system/bin before you mount system partition in read/write mode.

Sorry for my bad english.

No need to use busybox
Here is what i did (su is from su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip)

adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
adb shell chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
adb shell /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage

...

adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
adb push su /system/xbin/su
adb push su /system/bin/su
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

Now go to market and install SuperUser
adb shell reboot

Done!!!

Test if Superuser works or not:
adb shell
$ su

Now Superuser Request will appear on your phone, chose Allow.
#id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root)

To make Titanium work, press Promblem? button and let it download busybox (about 1MB)

Anyone that's rooted, fancy trying the original LG camera app?
As they have changed the video camera recording in 2.1, from .mp4 to .3gp, and the performance isnt as good as 1.6.
The original camera app from 1.6, I have uploaded is here!.

@ TheLostSwede, doubletakeit, or joestone: Fancy putting up a Tut, explaining the exact steps to root..might help out people who aren't so "up" on rooting, to understand the correct steps to do it, for example how to format the SD card, and what steps and progs to use.
Would help out a lot of people, I think. :lol:
