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/rageagainstthecage

5 KB/s (5392 bytes in 1.000s)

C:\rootgt540v20b>adb shell

$ chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage

chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage

$ ./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage

When I try the steps you gave, I get as far as the lines shown in RED.

C:\rootgt540v20b>
C:\rootgt540v20b>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
337 KB/s (0 bytes in 5392.000s)
adb shell
$ chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
$ ./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
[color="#FF0000"]./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage: permission denied[/color]
$ chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
$ ./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
[color="#FF0000"]./data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage: permission denied[/color][/codebox]

I get up to the chmod working fine, not sure why I dont have permission though any help would be much appreciated...

P.S I'm on 2.1 Baltic using a XP Pro 32b PC.

Try a factory reset , but do a backup before .

I have trouble doing this...

"- Select the option 'Module Test', then 'Stability Test' then 'Enable Root Permission'"

After selecting 'Stability Test' I have no option to 'Enable Root Permission'. Does this mean I have an updated version that wont root so easily?

Thanks for all your help. :)

Want to root your LG GT540?

Here's how! :rolleyes:

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. :huh:

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! :huh:

C:\rootgt540v20b>adb shell

chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

# su

I have gt540-V10a with android 1.6 , with no 'Enable Root Permission' option. I followed procedure up to the step where I need type su and it failed with following:

su

link_image[1638]: 7017 could not load needed library 'libbinder.so' for 'su' (load_library[984]: Library 'libbinder.so' not found)CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE

So, applications required root are not running correctly. Any ideas how I can fix the issue and root the phone properly ?

What do you mean 'with Phone plugged off'?

Plug the phone from the PC USB cable ! and then install the drivers, is that so hard to understand ? :P Am i writing in some alien english ? :D

Maybe a NOOB question but, Is a rooted phone not more virus sensitive?

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.
