Hi I'm trying to root my lg gt540. i'm running on 2.1.
i've tried the link in this thread to do it but when i download the file the only option i get is dimiss, no open.
i've also tried z4root, this seems to start rooting but then just exits z4root and goes back to my menu page.

any ideas where i'm going wrong? i have usg debugging ticked and also unknown apps ticked.

thanks


Strange z4root should do the trick, you sure your phone didnt rooted itslef? check if Superuser Application is installed.

Try using the polish or russian version (whichever it is...) i got an error when using the english one, but using the other, origional one worked...

Get it here: http://www.mediafire...627y6ydbtja588s

(you have to open 'Windows Enabler', click the icon in the system tray so it says on, click the buttons in kdz updator program to enable them....)

Dont ask me about Apps2SD, i have not created a guide for it, nor i ever used it... Its working too bad for me too use it and i dont trust it :s Just install Gingerbread on your device and enjoy native apps2sd support

but the downside is that many features won't work anymore in gingerbread, do you know when they can fix those?
also does gingerbread have any bad impact on the performance if we don't overclock the cpu ?

Thanks, worked great.

The official tools didnt work for me, stopped at 64%, gave me some bogus instructions on how to start again and pretty much bricked the phone.

This worked first go, although you forgot to mention to install the MSXML parser included with the KDZ_FW_UPD tools :mellow:

Cheers!


I agree, I had tried a number of methods which hadn't worked with a bricked GT540 (unable to get into emergency mode, but able to get into download mode holding volume down and pressing power), but after installing the MSXML Parser, getting the general EU firmware and following these steps, it fixed the phone and is now working perfectly.

Thanks a million for this post, it was the only one on the internet that worked for me when an official LG Software update failed and bricked the phone

Cheers!
