This is a discussion on LG Ally will get Android 2.2 Upgrade! within the LG Ally forums, part of the LG Android Phones category; Reposted in the update thread....
Well, can't reroot it, unless someone's found a diffrent way than asroot2/superuser.apk ?
Hi Christiebunny (love the avatar, btw), I know how you feel -- waiting for FroYo, getting mashed potatoes instead. But I'm not disappointed that LG pushed down the service pack -- at least it shows LG is still supporting the phone. And although I seem to be in the overwhelming minority here, I've been very pleased with update -- although I didn't appreciate them adding more apps. I'm hoping that, since City ID is still a paid app, I will be able to uninstall it once I don't pay for it. I have no desire to keep it.
I agree with several of the members, getting the software update was a good thing, that's how they try to fix minor issues and improve the phones performance. But sending unwanted or un-needed apps isn't necessary and a pain in the butt for most folks, because the phone has limited resources....memory....possibilty of conflicts....
Just let us know that they're available, and what they do,....we can decide if we want to download them.
So how do we remove system apps we don't want? is there a GUI uninstaller, or even a shell command that;d work for those of us that are rooted?
The most recent update killed my root and the previous method did not work to get it rooted again. I did some digging and found the easiest way to root my Ally. All I had to do was install an app and run it. Universal Androot is an app that will let you root and un-root your phone at will. I used version 1.6.1 and it worked beautifully on my Ally.
Go here and download the apk to your SD card:
Go to Settings/Applications and select Unknown sources so you can install from your SD card.
Use a file manager like Astro or ES File Explorer to run the install package.
Run Universal Androot and tap the "Root :-)" button and done!
Hope everyone finds it as useful as I did. Enjoy!!!
I have not heard anything new.
