Hi, I've followed this before and it worked, but i want to root a different phone, and I follow the instructions exactly, debugging is on, mass storage is off, but when i open root.bat it just does this
C:\Users\OWNER\Desktop\rootgt540>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/loca
l/tmp/rageagainstthecage
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
error: device not found

C:\Users\OWNER\Desktop\rootgt540>adb shell chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagains
tthecage
error: device not found

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

C:\Users\OWNER\Desktop\rootgt540>adb wait-for-device
and stays like that for ages the phone is plugged in, i've tried different usb ports, but it just wont work, any ideas?

try with this its work for me. Download Z4Root.

Have you plugged your phone at the usb cable and enable debugging mode while running z4 root?

Hi everyone

This is a my first post on here and I have just rooted my phone in one click :D

I recently had just updated my lg gt540go 1.6 firmware to LG GT540 2.1 and all still seems to be running fine, the reason I rooted my file is I wanted to run app that needed the phone to be rooted so many thanks for making it easy for me to do it.

I also finally got the LG PC suite working, simply had to go to settings and sd settings and uncheck the use as mass storage only box, Thanx again away to see if I can remote control my android from the pc.....

Thanx again every1 !

would this have a possibility of bricking my phone?


I almost pee on myself when I ran the script and my phone froze.

I had to take off the battery and disconnect the cable fearing that I was the lucky owner of a shiny paper holder.

Fortunately it booted okay and on the second try everything went smoothly.

the root.bat should be run on the pc not on the phone.



This is a good piece of advice. Maybe the original poster could clarify a little more and make the post newbie-proof.

I'm a newbie and I tried transfering the uncompressed folder and running root.bat from a file explorer on the phone. Fortunately I wasn't able and then I figured: why run a .bat in a linux-like environment?

Thanks so much to the original poster (and everyone who contributed). It works like a charm.

I rooted the phone without any issue with z4root.

Dude, it's just a phone! Don't kill yourself, it's not worth it. Go and buy 10x more expensive iPhone and be happy. I got new GT540 for 60 € without any obligation (contract) to my mobile operator. ;)
