Root and Im guessing the First Optimus ROM

Didnt see this anywhere.... just activated one of these for my Gf..

Info is only a few days old(err, atleast the ROM is), so dont feel bad if you missed it...From what ive read online, the Z4 One-Click Root should work on the Optimus One line(TMOs Optimus T, Sprints Optimus S, and VZWs LG Vortex) LG Optimus S Gets Root and Custom ROM


and then heres a ROM solely supported for Optimus S ROM – @KSmithInNY ThundeROM | Community Release
heres the ROM developers [how to] Thread for unlocking http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...optimus-s.html heres also a Z4 Thread with updated Device list http://www.androidcentral.com/galaxy-tab-root-z4-root (dont worry that its for the Galaxy S tab and devices, it supports almost 20devices)... The devloper of the ROM has the "S" so obviously it works



Enjoy!

Re: Root and Im guessing the First Optimus ROM

I just got a new Optimus and z4root won't root it at all. Z4root ran normally and the optimus reset afterward, but when I ran RomManager, it said need super user to function.

Havent done it myself, as its my gf's phone and she could care less about it... BUT, your doing something wrong then, because if you follow the links you can see theres more than 1 ROM for Optimus and several successful rooters posting their results...

**different root method??** http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...optimus-s.html

Try wiping the phone before performing any rooting or flashing. z4Root Worked right out of the box for me. These were my steps:
Install z4Root
Perm Root
Powercycled
Downloaded SuperUser
Downloaded Terminal Emulator
Downloaded Rom Manager
Open SuperUser. ALLOW
Open Terminal Emulato. type SU. ALLOW
Open Rom Manager.
Flash ClockWork Recovery
Boot into Clockwork
Wipe phone.Wipe Dalvik.Wipe cache
Install rom.
Reboot.
Enjoy.

ThundeROM is awesome. I shouldn't have waited a month to try it.
