    I am trying to find the z4root app. I found it on the developer's site but it won't let me download it. It is suppose to work with the froyo 2.2 update. Any ideas where to find it? and has anyone used it with the update?

    There is *no* 1-click root method for Android 2.2.1.



    Go to the Ally forums at androidforums.com and in the "all things root" subforum you will find all your rooting needs.

    like i said SuperOneClick worked for me. I read that you only need to follow the guide on androidforums, if you want to flash a custom rom, or make a recovery.

    I was able to achieve root (well kind of) on 2.2.1. I've upgraded to froyo from LG site and I used manual superoneclick instructions adopted from here:

    http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=797397







    Download one click root -http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=803682





    I used the latest version - 1.6.1

    If you are on Linux substitute adblinux for adb





    Extract RootPack zip file

    Browse to contents from cmd/terminal

    adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp/psneuter

    adb shell

    cd /data/local/tmp

    chmod 0755 psneuter

    ./psneuter

    (wait for you to get kicked from adb)

    adb shell






    (You should have # prompt now, you are root)

    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/stl9 /system


    exit

    adb push su-v1 /system/bin/su

    adb push busybox /system/bin/busybox

    adb push sqlite3 /system/bin/sqlite3

    adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk

    adb shell

    cd /system/bin

    chmod 4755 su

    chmod 4755 busybox

    chmod 4755 sqlite3






    (At this point you are welcome to do any root activities you would like)

    reboot






    Unfortunately, after the reboot, su doesn't work. I get "permission denied" error, on both su-v1 and su-v2. However, you can still perform some root activities such as removing bloatware and annoying startup sound right after you run psneuter and remount /system rw.





    Let me know if you can get su working.





    Update 1:





    su-v2 seems to be working on the phone itself. Running terminal emulator gives me the root prompt. But it doesn't work from the adb.

    That's all fine and dandy but without bootloader you'll never be able to flash custom ROMs etc.

    That's good to know. I had heard on some other dev boards that 2.2.1 was still vulnerable to rageinthecage style exploits but I couldn't get it to work. Looks like either psneuter does it differently or I just didn't try hard enough. I'm personally happy the one click roots have been patched... that's a HUGE security hole













    edit: I just used the instructions I quoted verbatim and have a working root that sticks after reboot. After rooting with psneuter, I rebooted and opened a terminal. When I typed su, it brought up the superuser allow/deny box then told me permission denied. Running su a second time brought it up again and dropped me to a root shell.

    I installed the Froyo 2.2.1 update this afternoon using the LG Mobile Update app and used SuperOneClick v1.6.3 to get root back. SuperOneClick worked without a hitch. I just had to reboot to apply the changes to the phone. I am impressed how simple devs have made rooting phones.
