Default Lg eve gw620r

First post!

EDIT: FYI, LG GW620R and GW620 are the same device The R is for Rogers.

I have an Rogers LG EVE GW620R at version 10Q (Android 1.6)

I am getting the following message on power up...

System UIDs on the system are inconsistent, you need to wipe your data partition or your device will be unstable.

"I'm Feeling Lucky" button is the only option to select.

I have tried a factory reset without any change from the SD card menu.

I have also tried the factory reset and user data reset from the hidden menu.

to get to the hidden menu I need to enter "3845#*620#" to get in to the secret menu before the dialer app process stops and needs to close.

Under the 1.5 Android firmware I could root the phone from the hidden menu. Since I'm at 1.6 the menu option is not available.

I am happy to flash firmware 1.6 with LG Mobile Support tools but can only do this if I have version 1.5 installed. Otherwise no update required.

I need to flash the phone to correct the system UID issue. I am able to browse the internet, download and run apps but my basic phone functions don't work like the dialer and importing my contacts. he dialer app usually stops after 3 to 4 numbers entered, so I have to be quick to enter "3845#*620#" to get in to the secret menu.

I have found a copy of Android version 1.6 firmware "V10Q_00.kdz"

so here is my question...can android version 1.6 be rooted to flash 1.6 (V10Q) and how?
