Although I have scoured the corners of the internet there seems to be no clear way yet to root the new 2.2.2 update that came out last week for the Ally. Wondering if there are any known ways to do this. Or at least any ways that might work. Another option I was wondering about that has worked for me in the past when jailbreaking on iOS is simply downgrading the software. Is that possible on Android to just go from 2.2.2 down to 2.2.1?

I think I got GingerBreak to work on my Ally running 2.2.2, just had Titanium Backup tell me it was working properly.

Which version of SuperOneClick did you use? and are you using a custom ROM? if so which one?



I tried to root my phone with Z4root. I does not seem to work. Lurking around on the android forum, I believe it may have to do with my pnone having the 2.2.2 update? It also appears that there may not be any custom roms for this ver of Android (buglessbeast 4.0, don't know if the overclocked speed (800mhz) will work on my Ally)? Wondering how I may return my phone to 2.2.1 so I can root , then switch to a custom ROM (either Frunisher 1.0, or Velocity 1.1) that will work with this pnone. Any help greatly appreciated!

I don't think Bugless Beast has ever been working on the Ally.



GingerBreak works to root 2.2.2.

Yes, thanks! Learned a lot yesterday, I used Super OneClick v 1.9.1 to root, dowloaded ROM Manager and flashed ClockworkMod Recovery, backed up stock ROM, then flashed Velocity 1.1. My phone has never worked better and I wish I would have done this long agohttp://www.lgallyforums.com/public/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif ...guess I was worried I would brick it. http://www.lgallyforums.com/public/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif



It was fairly easy to do and I love the results! http://www.lgallyforums.com/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif

Allow me to explain something... using SuperOneClick successfully ruins any chance of getting into the bootloader, in which case you're screwed if you, let's say, flash a 2.1 ROM on accident and can't get into recovery. Congrats, you guys have now ruined your phones. If you want the TRUE way to root, let me know. I'll give you a link to the IRC for the room just in case you guys don't have it. http://webchat.freen...els=ally&uio=d4 (http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ally&uio=d4)

I just accidentally removed the stock messaging app and I am now rebooting from the back up I made last week with ClockWorkMod. I can send texts but not receive. All this after the 2.2.2 update. Hopefully this reverts me to 2.2.1 If not... I'm gonna be asking for major help. Rebooting now... ... ... ... ... SWEET! IT WORKED! YATAI!

If your phone was shipped with V6, you don't have any reason to worry. Any phone shipped after V6 has access to the bootloader blocked, meaning if you did adb reboot-bootloader or used quick boot to access the bootloader, the phone would simply just reboot. And the "ruined" you're thinking about isn't ruined to the point it won't work, it's more of you're making it worse by using SuperOneClick to root the device, instead of using this guide (http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/263285-guide-froyo-2-2-1-root-users-updated-3-3-2011-3-40-pm-est-now-easier-than-ever.html) to root it. Another thing, using ClockworkMod Recovery messes with the Ally. CWM doesn't like the Ally. Trust me, I know, as I've experienced what it does. Use drellisdee's (A.K.A. getitnowmarketing) amon ra recovery, as it's there for a reason.

Hey man, i was wanting to do the exact same thing to my gf's new phone. I was wondering if there is anyway you can give me step by step instructions on how u did this? I got super oneclick, do i need the phone drivers, where can i get them, where can i download rom manager, and flash clockworkmod recovery, I would be forever in your debt if you could help me out a little and maybe give me some help as to how you accomplished getting from 2.2.2, to velocity 1.1. Thanks so much, Luke

What, does no one heed my statement? Don't root it via SuperOneClick. You're only screwing yourself over if you do. Don't even use any app either. Do it the "long" way and get it done right. Oh, and not even Trident, the creator of Velocity, supports SuperOneClick. And don't use clockworkmod on the Ally. It messes with it. I've felt the repercussions of it. Use amonra, as that's what it's there for.



EDIT: Oh! Sorry, didn't read the nickname, lhobby3. Glad to see you went to the IRC. Sorry bout that!

I realize you are trying to be helpful but your posts are a little bit aggressive. You've made your point that you are against SuperOneClick but if someone wants to use it it is their choice.

Being aggressive is not what I meant to pass off as. I understand that if people want to use it, it is their choice, but I'm telling them NOT to because it can, with an unfortunate turn of events, cost you the phone. I've helped tons of people and I know exactly what I'm talking about. Even the creator of Velocity doesn't want you to use SuperOneClick. Why take the shortcut and do it WRONG when you can take a little bit more time and do it RIGHT?

Sorta: While you may not mean to come across as aggressive even this last post you made, with the capitalized words (which is often meant to be shouting), comes off as aggressive. As Ally Android has said and you appear to agree with rooting with SuperOneClick, while maybe not the best way to root the Ally, has been used successfully by people. So it's not totally wrong, just something that can go wrong if not done carefully.



Yes you want to help. Yes you feel passionate about how to root this phone. But what comes across is that you are right and everyone who doesn't do it your way is not right. In truth there are a number of different ways that all work. So please continue to offer your help with rooting the Ally, remind people to be careful when they do root the phone but don't put them down because they don't choose to follow your advice.



You can be a valuable resource to members of the forum but not if they see you as negative or aggressive. Please take some time to review your posts and see how your passion has come across as aggressiveness. Please take these messages as an attempt to help you rather than as an attack on you.

I was using the capitals as emphasis (it's a force of habit learned from the IRC (old habits die hard, eh?). I'll be sure to use italics from now on to emphasize stuff). And, as I said before, i don't want to pass off as aggressive, and if I did, I'm sorry. As for SOC, I'm simply letting them know that they shouldn't use a "one click root" because that's not the best thing, especially for this phone. And if it looked like I was putting someone down, I wasn't meaning to.

It is one of the problems with written communication that so much of what we mean is lost because all we have to rely on is the written word, and most of our communication is non verbal. So often what we read is colored by what else is going on with us rather than what the person who wrote the message was meaning.



So lets all agree to let this be another lesson in how easy it is to misunderstand what is meant and agree to go on with discussions about this phone.

Sorry, I haven't been on here earlier because things are working great! I do know from the Velocity 1.1 menu that I can (and have) reboot into the amon ra recovery, so does that mean I am lucky and everything is fine or do I need to go back and re-do something? I have no issues with my phone, I didn't even have any mms issues that a lot of folks are having.

Ok...so, I've been wanting to root my phone since I got it in October, however, since I am not totally 100% sure I know what I am doing, I have not yet. I have been following these forums and it seems like with the new update its easier to root now. Although from what I am gathering, with velocity 6, you shouldn't root it...My question is this: how the heck do I know if I have velocity, and what the heck is velocity? I suppose if I don't know, nor see it on my phone I don't have it? And since I don't see it on my phone I should be ok with using this super one click...am I right in assuming this?

i am going to root using superoneclick (the long way says you need a pc which i dont have access to) and hopefully use velocity 1.1. will it make a difference if i use clockworkmod or amonra? also, how can i tell if my phone was shipped before v6?

It is probably for the best to reroot it using the guide if you haven't already simply due to the fact that it could quite possibly save your phone (not only that, it lets you do cool stuff too). Honestly, just about any "one click root" way for this phone isn't a smart or possibly safe idea. The longer the guide is, the better. I would say just reroot it using the guide just for the safety of the phone.

nvm...rooted easily with gingerbreak. downloaded rom manager and though it took as many tries as i had patience for, i was able to flash velocity. didnt have to use any long complicated guides to root, didnt really take much phone/computer knowledge at all and my phone is in no way 'ruined'

Velocity is a custom ROM made by Trident. If you haven't rooted your phone, you won't have Velocity. And you can use Super One Click to root, although it is not recommended to root the phone. I've got enough experience to know that using it is safe, but should not be used. The guide on Android Forums is what you should use to root it to get Velocity 1.1. If you want help, you can stop by the IRC channel here (http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ally&uio=d4) and we will help you out with the guide.

Hey guys,wasnt sure where to post this one but I'm looking for the exact opposite. I just got my 2nd LG Ally a week ago and have rooted it,and installed Frunisher 1.0. When I go to >Settings>About Phone, my Android Verison is still 2.2.1 but at the bottom under Software Version it says VS740ZVE(the new 2.2.2 Update,VS740ZVD was 2.2.1). I have the updated radio from here: Android Ally (http://www.savoxis.com/ally/roms.html) And I also have the updated Kernel as well. Would the Kernel or baseband radio update affect the 2.2.2 update at all? I'm not sure but I've never seen this happen with any other Android phone I've had. Any info on this is greatly appreciated!
