I would highly doubt it, but give it a try. The easiest way to try is to download Astro from the Market. It's a good file manager, similar to Explorer on Windows. It will let you look through folders, delete them, etc.

Tried using Astro, but when I tried to uninstall moxier mail for example, it said it was unable to uninstall. Maybe I should try rooting. Is "un"rooting an Eve possible/as easy as rooting it? Also, does it void the warranty?

Technically you are voiding your warranty as you're making changes to the OS. However, you can always restore back to a stock Rogers / LG firmware if you ever have to send in your phone. Not sure if it completely reverses the root, but all the Rogers apps will be back.

I've already installed the drivers and adb,but adb shell shows no device.

The 2nd LG USB Modem installed as an Android Phone.

I'm using winXP,SP2 PRO, these are my steps.
enable USB Debugging mode,dial 3845....and enable root permission,restart my phone,connect my phone to PC,install the drivers.
win+R TO open CMD window,cd to the sdk tools directory,adb shell,shows device not found...

in my device manager,there's an android phone class,under it is an android Adb..


I've failed adb in ubuntu....

solved,I manually installed the driver in the sdk/usb_dr,use the adb in sdk/tools.

It sounds like the LG V10N software has extra security when trying to enable root permissions. Unless you can somehow find out what the password is, you may be out of luck in rooting V10N.

Cool Rooted successfully - thanks all! Some tips... and a Q...

Hi all,

i have a successfully rooted my phone thanks to the various posters here - thanks guys! You rock!

one tip - if you are not getting the # prompt, but getting the $ prompt instead, then you need to power-down your phone and start it up again. That solved the problem for me, at least. (others have said this in other forum posts, but I wanted to reiterate to raise it up on the Google hit list)

One question for the group - I got rid of most of the Rogers crapola (telenav, moxier*, etc), but there's a whole section of Roger's links still in my "applications" list. The my5 link, weather, home, stocks, etc.... I want rid of ALL of them, but I can't find where those links live... any idea? Probably in a database somewhere, but I haven't had time to explore all the different sqlite3 databases on the machine yet... guidance appreciated!

Cheers all!

They went away for me when I deleted the Rogers.apk, The only thing I kept is the MyAccount.apk which I downloaded from the marketplace.

Here is a diff of what went away

Code:
3d2
< Rogers.apk
9d7
< RingsExtended.odex
18d15
< IM_RGS.apk
29d25
< Rogers.odex
52d47
< FaceBook.apk
56,57d50
< Linkbook.odex
< MoxierMail-2.1.20.2-GW620-Rogers.apk
76d68
< MySpace.apk
91d82
< Email.apk
102d92
< RingsExtended.apk
109d98
< Linkbook.apk
118d106
< RogersImPlugin.apk

Just a quick note - in another of the Android developers forums the hackers are quite convinced that they'll have a functional android 2.0 for the Eve within a couple of months! BUT!! IMPORTANT!! YOU MUST NOT UPGRADE TO 1.6 if you plan to use their hack to upgrade to 2.0. This is because the "secret code" to get to the root menu seems to have changed between 1.5 and 1.6, so you wont b e able to hack 1.6 until someone leaks that code...

Just a heads-up :-)

Notsure

I have one question and hopefully someone can answer this for me. I followed the directions to a tee as far as I know but when I get to step 9 (Type "adb install bin/Superuser.apk) I get a message that says "install: not found"

I'm unable to get passed this point.

I placed the superuser whitelist in my /sdk/tools/ directory exactly as specified.

Any ideas.

Try typing the full path name of the superuser file instead. When I rooted my phone, i had to type the full path name of my superuser file, even though i updated my windows path to include the SDK/TOOLS folder.

Default Download software from Electronic market issue need your help

All of this information I found through other forums, so I just followed the steps and got a rooted Eve quite simply. All thanks go to the original rooters (Zacpod) and the fine folks over at XDA.
I was using Windows 7 so Vista or XP maybe slightly different, but not a whole lot. Also, I did this a few weeks ago so some of it is going from memory. If any edits are needed I will update this post.
Getting started

First, get yourself a copy of Android SDK (it's completely free) from here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Read the installation guide here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html
You only need to install the SDK, not the Eclipse plugin.

If you're using Windows, you'll also need the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) USB driver. Get it from here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html

Download the LG USB drivers from this link.
Linux and OSX users don't need a driver (lucky you!).

How to install the LG USB and ADB USB drivers on Windows.

This is the part that I had the most problems with, but that's mainly because I read the instructions wrong!
First, install the LG USB drivers from the link above.

Then, on the phone you need to enable USB debugging mode

Settings ---> Applications ---> Development ---> USB debugging (put a check mark here)
Connect the phone to your PC with the USB cable.

In Windows, you should hear the beep on a connected device and the LG drivers should find it OK. In Windows, open up Device Manager and you should see 2 devices with yellow exclamation marks beside it and the description "LG USB Modem" (I'm going from memory here, so that may not be 100% accurate).

Right click on the 2nd one, click "Update driver software", click "Browse my computer for driver software" then click "Let me pick from a list..." You should see "Android Phone" listed. Double click this and you should see a list of 3 options. Click on "Android ADB Interface" and click "Next". You'll probably see an "Update driver warning" box, so just click "Yes" to install it anyway.

If you don't see 3 options, click "Have Disk..." and select the Android USB driver (android_winusb.inf) you downloaded earlier.

After all this, you should now be able to get ADB shell access to your Eve. To check you have access follow these steps:
If you're on Windows, open a Command Prompt window but make sure you "Run as administrator" to get the privilegies needed. Linux users can use Terminal.

Navigate to your installed Android SDK (ie: "cd c:\SDK\tools\" if that's where you installed it).
Now type "adb devices" to see if your Eve is detected. If it is, you're good to go on.

Rooting (all credit to Zacpod)

Now onto the actual root. All this is taken from Zacpod's excellent post found here: http://androidnetwork.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=143 I'll be copying it almost verbatim, and I hope he doesn't mind

  1. Download the Superuser Whitelist (http://koushikdutta.blurryfox.com/Superuser/Superuser.zip) and unzip it somewhere safe such as c:\SDK\tools\
  2. On the GW620 dial "3845#*620#" to get in to the secret menu
  3. Tap "Module Test" then tap "Stability Test" then tap "Enable Root Permission"
  4. Open a Command Prompt on Windows by pressing Windows Key + R, then type "cmd" in the empty field. Note, you should also run this with Administrator rights. Linux users can use Terminal.
Navigate to your installed Android SDK (ie: "cd c:\SDK\tools\").

  1. Type "adb shell"
  2. You should get a #. If you get a $ then something didn't work. Shutdown the phone and PC and try again. If you get a # then all is well. Type "exit" to return to your PCs command prompt.
  3. Type "adb remount" to remount the GW620's file system as read-write so we can make changes.
  4. Type "adb shell cat /system/xbin/su > /system/xbin/su.original" [Note: This step may give you a "could not find path" error. Just continue on with step 5 and the root will still work.]
  5. Type "adb push bin/su /system/xbin/su"
  6. Type "adb push bin/su /system/bin/su"
  7. Type "adb shell chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su"
  8. Type "adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su"
  9. Type "adb install bin/Superuser.apk"
You will now have root access to your Eve and can now remove the Rogers apps.

Removing the Rogers apps (credits to the people of XDA)

  1. Make sure your phone is in USB debugging mode (see beginning of guide).
  2. In the Command Prompt (or Terminal on Linux), make sure you're in your SDK Tools folder (c:\SDK\tools\)
  3. Type "adb shell". You should see "#"
  4. Type the following commands:
Code:
adb remount
Code:
mkdir /sdcard/backup
Code:
cd /system/app
Code:
dd if=MoxierMail-2.1.20.2-GW620-Rogers.apk of=/sdcard/backup/MoxierMail-2.1.20.2-GW620-Rogers.apk
This backs up the MoxierMail app onto your SD card.
Code:
rm MoxierMail-2.1.20.2-GW620-Rogers.apk
Code:
dd if=Linkbook.apk of=/sdcard/backup/Linkbook.apk
Again, creates a backup of the Linkbook app onto your SD card.

Code:
dd if=Linkbook.odex of=/sdcard/backup/Linkbook.odex
Again, creates a backup of the Linkbook app onto your SD card.
Code:
rm Linkbook.odex
Code:
rm Linkbook.apk
Code:
dd if=MySpace.apk of=/sdcard/backup/MySpace.apk
Code:
rm MySpace.apk
Code:
dd if=RingsExtended.odex of=/sdcard/backup/RingsExtended.odex
Code:
dd if=RingsExtended.apk of=/sdcard/backup/RingsExtended.apk
Code:
rm RingsExtended.odex
Code:
rm RingsExtended.apk
You're done. Stay in the ADB shell for the next part.



Enable deleting of pre-installed bookmarks

In ADB shell, type:

Code:
cd /data/data/com.android.browser/databases
Code:
sqlite3 browser.db "update bookmarks set readonly=0;"
This will allow you to delete the Rogers bookmarks.
Type "exit" in the ADB shell to return you to the Command Prompt.


Hopefully this should help out a few people that want to root and remove the Rogers apps. You may have problems with the Windows USB driver getting recognized as I do all the time. I have to keep re-installing the ADB driver for some reason, but it get's there eventually.
Good luck!

Hi, Here is robbiechang come from china. now I have a LG GW620 in hand and faced software installation issue. so I follow all your steps and done it. but now the new problem that is I can't download the software from the electronic market.
Another question that is I don't know how to install the software into the SD card and uninstall original software such as Gmail, Google talk and etc.

Look forward to your prompt reply and high appreciate for that.

Is there anyway possible this could be made to work on the LG ally? That phone is really handcuffed by the LG Home app, and socialite, and there is no way to remove them

Default Cannot install USB Drivers

So on both Vista and XP I get stuck at the exact same spot every time. First I plug in my Eve and it has to find the drivers, Ive tried directing it to the folder specifically as well as using Device Manager and every time I get the error Unable to install driver....you might want to contact the website blah blah blah. Anyone know what I might be doing wrong.

(In Windows, you should hear the beep on a connected device and the LG drivers should find it OK. In Windows, open up Device Manager and you should see 2 devices with yellow exclamation marks beside it and the description "LG USB Modem" (I'm going from memory here, so that may not be 100% accurate).

Right click on the 2nd one, click "Update driver software", click "Browse my computer for driver software" then click "Let me pick from a list..." You should see "Android Phone" listed. Double click this and you should see a list of 3 options. Click on "Android ADB Interface" and click "Next". You'll probably see an "Update driver warning" box, so just click "Yes" to install it anyway.)

It`s this part that I am having dificulty with. Up to this part I have done everything correctly, including the Android SDK and installed all the addons found within.

Please Help

I had same problem, it was because none of the the vendor IDs defined in the android_winusb.inf file didnt match my device.
Back in device manager, right click the second LG USB Modem, properties, Details tab.
Mine shows USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_01\6&AF0B60F&0&0001
which doesnt match any entries in the INF file.
eg this was the first set of entries in winusb.inf (scroll down a bit to see them)
; HTC Dream
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0FFF

so I copied them & pasted in my vendor ID to make another set for my phone and inserted at the top:
; LG GW620
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_0FFF
;
saved the file, and tried update driver again, again pointing it to usb_driver directory
=> bingo, it found it, installed an Android Phone device with a child of Android Composite ADB interface.

OK, so now I am rooted. I have heard that this helps if you want to install paid applications. But if I look in Market now, I still get only freeware or adware..
I'm having the same issue (cannot stat 'bin/su': No such file or directory
). What is the path to the correct folder to place this? Currently, I have the whole SuperUser folder under android tools folder. Is that correct?
I will appreciate any feedback.
@Britbloke thanks for this guide.

EDIT: I solved this by using the full path to the superuser directory.

Original step: 5. Type "adb push bin/su /system/xbin/su"
Modified for my PC: Type: "adb push C:\Users\Masu\Desktop\Tools\android-sdk-windows\tools\Superuser\bin/su /system/xbin/su"

I had to do the same for steps 6 and 9 as well.

Well it will probably show up in Windows as an unknown device. right click on the unknown device and point to the android_winusb.inf file you downloaded.

I'm not sure about in windows 7, but for XP I had to actually add my device to the driver file and it had to be listed at the top in order for XP to install it. If you open android_winusb.inf with notepad, you can edit the file. You will need the device ID in order to update the file. Go into device manager while your phone is connected and right click on the 2nd unknown device. the click on the details tab and copy the ID into the driver file. each ID is different so you'll have to add your own in.

The only way i know how to check is to see if the apps you removed are actually gone when you disconnect it from your PC.

to install the new firmware visit zacpods website, he has a how to there:

http:\\Zac's Pad | Tech, Toys, and Tidbits

He has the 1.6 rom but there is a 2.1 rom out as well over at openetna - Project Hosting on Google Code

thats what i'm running currently.

Hope this helps

I'm not a pro at this so forgive me if i give u the wrong answer but I'm sure i did install the full sdk (the link that was given to me in this tutorial) and when I typed "adb install bin/Superuser.apk" it told me it was successful and there was a "Superuser white-list" app with a pound sign icon on my phone, I assumed it worked successfully.

Thats about all it did for me lol oh and btw if you press enable root permission and it asks you for a password i believe it is "eve&adam&&620love!" without quote marks of course

Sounds like its rooted. thats the password you need on later builds. Only earlier versions you don't need a password at all.

If you don't see 3 options, click "Have Disk..." and select the Android USB driver (android_winusb.inf) you downloaded earlier.

I'm still having trouble with this. I went to the android_winusb and added something so the android could be recognized, and I still don't see "Android Phone" listed.

Ok so I solved the last problem.. Under Removing the Rogers apps when I number 4 after seeing the "#" and type "adb remount" it says adb: not found. What could I be doing wrong?



Removing the Rogers apps (credits to the people of XDA)

  1. Make sure your phone is in USB debugging mode (see beginning of guide).
  2. In the Command Prompt (or Terminal on Linux), make sure you're in your SDK Tools folder (c:\SDK\tools\)
  3. Type "adb shell". You should see "#"
  4. Type the following commands:
Code:
adb remount

You shouldn't do the Remount from the # prompt. Try the "adb remount" command from the dos prompt (c:\whatever\sdk\tools) -- Give that a try. It works fine for me.


Edit: It does appear in the original post, but the correct sequence is under "Rooting" and "Navigate to:" rather than "Removing"

1. Type "adb shell"
2. You should get a #. If you get a $ then something didn't work. Shutdown the phone and PC and try again. If you get a # then all is well. Type "exit" to return to your PCs command prompt (NOTE: This is where it returns you to the DOS prompt).
3. Type "adb remount" to remount the GW620's file system as read-write so we can make changes.

If you apply this same sequence of steps to the "Removing" section ("adb remount" from dos, not #), your problem should disappear.

ive been trying to flash the device several times now with the system and boot images. i always come across a 'FAILED <remote: flash write failure>' when writing either images. then i'll unplug the phone, re-enter into fastboot and try and flash again. IF it does work, i'll unplug the usb, put in the battery and start up the phone. after the openetna logo appears, i get a '[Blue Error Handler]' Arm11 is Crashed!! ...' message. I've gotten to the stage several times after flashing, I'm confused as to what's going on. All the images are from the openetna site, using WinXP Professional on a Lg Gw620 1.5 V10-f device...i'm aiming for eclair 2.1. HELP!

Does anyone know whether the following problems are fixed/enhanced in Openetna's 2.2 system?

-camera quality (currently at 3.0MP)
-video capture/recording (currently not working)
-call volume (currently low)
-Youtube (currently glitchy)
-external music key (currently not working)
-Bluetooth 2.0 (currently not working)
-battery life (currently drains at fast rate)
-SD scrolling of pictures (currently slow)
-caller display (sometimes displays 'Payphone')

Thanks for your help! 2.1 is great with lots of features, but some of the basic stuff that's not working is making me reconsider stock :S

(In Windows, you should hear the beep on a connected device and the LG drivers should find it OK.

You'll probably see an "Update driver warning" box, so just click "Yes" to install it anyway.)

It`s this part that I am having dificulty with. Up to this part I have done everything correctly, including the Android SDK and installed all the addons found within.

Please Help

On Windows 7, same problem, no Android device is listed. Yes i checked debugging enabled on the phone. Yes it's plugged to my computer. Yes i installed the USB Driver for SDK, yes i installed the LG USB driver, but nothing.
I'm considering not updating this phone since this isn't working for me.

just went through this guide and finally got it working. thanks a bunch for the walk-through. besides the USB problems, as it looks like everyone is having problems with, it went fairly well.

the USB problems can usually be fixed by rebooting after the APK USB install. or at least thats how it worked for me on win7 32 bit/netbook.

which doesnt match any entries in the INF file.
eg this was the first set of entries in winusb.inf (scroll down a bit to see them)
; HTC Dream
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0FFF

so I copied them & pasted in my vendor ID to make another set for my phone and inserted at the top:
; LG GW620
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_0FFF
;
saved the file, and tried update driver again, again pointing it to usb_driver directory
=> bingo, it found it, installed an Android Phone device with a child of Android Composite ADB interface.
I did this step and it's STILL not appearing on my device manager, and i have restarted my netbook several times to no avail. I'm on windows 7 ultimate edition. Seriously any help guys?

Friend purchased an Lg Eve off some dude in toronto, and it ws rooted with 2.1 , and it can access my university's wifi whereas mine on stock doesn't even see the network, and 1.5 is disgusting. Please someone help me experience the froyo goodness!

device manager *RIGHT CLICK* 2nd lg mobile usb modem --> update driver software --> browse my computer... --> pick from a list ....NOTHING still.
I have installed the LG drivers, the 4.9 version.
I replaced all the original USB drivers for the SDK with the rebuilt ones, and nothing so far.

Do i need the sdk program open when i do this? or no. either way i'm not getting android device on the list. and i have tried restarts of the netbook , and restarts of hte phone as well and i'm still getting nothing. Can't root my phone when the damn thing won't even get connected to the damn computer.

EDIT: Note i've been trying on TWO computers, both windows 7 , and thusfar i've gotten nothing,

EDIT 2: UPON installing hte usb driver again the two yellow lg usb mobile modem things don't even pop up anymore.

Do you have the folder "usb_driver" in your SDK folder.
If not, open the sdk manager and download that from the list.

Go to your SDK/usb_driver/android_winusb and open that file with ur notepad.
Under [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] add:

; LG GW620
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_00
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_0FFF
;

So itll recognize ur phone
