Happy [OUTDATED] Root 2.2.1 and get Data WORKING!!!

IMPORTANT
This guide is a little old and no longer contains the current, correct root method.

For complete, working root guides, take a look at the Root Exploits Section here:
LG Optimus M: All Things Root Guide (updated 12-20-2012)


Well after the success of a couple of people that currently rooted their stock 2.2.1 phone with this files, I decided to make a thread so that everyone can do it.

Very first thing to do is to download the drivers go here LG Optimus M MS690 Cell Phones & Mobile Phones - LG Electronics US and download the drivers and install them.

Then go here and Download LGNPST
Open the file and extract these files to your desktop LGNTPS_Components_Ver_5_0_12_0.msi
LGNTPS_General_v1.2_Lab_Version.msi
LGNTPS_Generic_Models_ver_5_0_10_0.msi
Also extract LGNTPST.exe and the Model and the cdaworkshop folders.

Run LGNTPS_General_v1.2_Lab_Version.msi file, let it install if ask for reboot do it. Then run LGNTPS_Components_Ver_5_0_12_0.msi and let it install if ask for reboot do it. Then Run LGNTPS_Generic_Models_ver_5_0_10_0.msi let it install if ask for reboot do it.

After all these files install, locate the LGNTPS.exe file on your desktop and copy it to: C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST. Make a shortcut to the desktop because it`s required to run the program. Also copy the Model folder on your desktop to C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST as well. Go to C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Model and delete all the files except for MS690.dll, MS690ZV3_36.scr, Reggie.exe and Setup.exe. **Then drag the MS690.dll file on top of the Reggie.exe file to register the MS690.dll file.** <---- Very Important step, Make sure to have Administrator Rights.

After all of the above download this file MS690ZV4-root.zipand extract it to your C:\ drive. (On your C:\ should be the following files: 3017nam1.prl, busybox, MS690ZV4-root.bin, su and Superuser.apk)

Run LGNTPS from your desktop shortcut. Make sure the program is set to Provision option and under Provision should be Upgrade. Where it says bin File click on the folder and look for MS690ZV4.bin that should be on your C:\ drive and select it. Check the box where says SCR file and select the MS690ZV3_36.scr on C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\Model. Check the PRL File box and select the 3017nam1.prl on you C:\ drive.

After that is done click start, the program needs the SPC code. So open cdaworkshop on your destop and open cdma workshop.exe. After the programs load select your COM port where the cellphone is connected (It is shown on the right side of LGNTPS on the phone info tab) then click connect. Go to the security tab and where it says SPC scroll down and select the LG method. Click read and write down the your SPC code, then type it in LGNTPS and the process of updating your phone should begin. When the process is at 43% the cell phone restart DON`T do anything to your phone (don`t even touch it until it reachs 100%). After it reachs 100% the phone should be on the lock screen without service.

To get service back and root you need to download adb. Go to Android SDK | Android Developers and download the file that ends on .zip. Extract it to your C:\ drive. Go to C:\android-sdk-windows and open sdkmanager.exe. After is open a windows will pop out click reject on all files except for:
Android SDK Tools and Android SDK Platform tools. Make sure USB debugging is activated (On your phone go to settings> applications>development and check USB debugging) Then open up Cmd and type the following: cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools.
After that type: adb push C:\su /data/local/tmp/ (to copy the su file)
then type: adb push C:\busybox /data/local/tmp/ (to copy the busybox file)
Then type: adb install C:\Superuser.apk (to install the superuser app)

Reboot your phone and check if you got service. To install new Recovery Menu for 2.2. phones and get service back go to this thread Then install a program from market called anreboot. Install the app and open it up, then select reboot system. If everything went alright your phone will restart and it will have service and will be rooted.

To verify root go to market download terminal emulator from Jack Pal. Then open it up and type su, if you get # you are successfully root.

If you want to install the first custom rom for 2.2.1 stock phones follow this guide to do it. To install this rom follow this steps:

First download it and copy it to Android images (This is a folder for easier access on the sdcard, If you don`t have it you will have to create it)

Then reboot to recovery and select wipe option, then select wipe all userdata (You will have to erase everything from your phone to avoid errors.)

After that go back and select flash zip menu, then select toggle Signature Verify.
Next choose Flash zip from sdcard, navigate to Android Images folder and select
the downloaded image with .zip ending.

Click on menu to confirm and let it do it`s job. It will take a while to finish.
After it`s done go back and select reboot system now.

You will have the first custom rom and a rooted 2.2.1 stock phone.

Hope this guide help guys

Download the files and unzip them, once they are unzipped place them in your sdcard, you will need to use command prompt and run adb shell, grant root access to the cmd. Now you should see a # instead of $, type the commands that are located in the box on the custom restore link. Once that is done restart your phone and you will have signal.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any problems

To all who have done this does it work without any problems? I guess I should ask since the phone has been rooted have you had any problems with the data/service after getting them to work?

Sorry but i have a noob questions. After you download the Android SDK zip file are you suppose to run the application that comes with it before you start entering the cmd promts? I followed your guide but when i got to the cmd promts it keeps telling me that file cannot be found.

Also, I am running Windows 7. Could that be an issue? LGNPST keeps crashing even though I uninstalled and reinstalled and the .dll doesn't show up in the right hand corner.

Windows 7 is not the problem. I rooted 3 phones with my windows 7 and worked perfectly.

why dont you remove everything that was added to your computer and start from the beginning there might have been a problem installing the components. When installing them turn off your UAC, i had problems installing them till i turned UAC off.

Compatibility mode doesn't seem to make a difference for me, I'm using Vista. The only part I think might have gone wrong was when dragging the .dll to reggie.exe to register. I get an error and 2 xml documents are created labeled settings and ms690_cmdinfo.

those are the files created when you register the .dll..i just checked my folder and they were both there....im also using XP PRO...i dont really like vista or 7 all that much.i prefer the "simple" route.

Well... I guess I can just downgrade to 2.2 and use z4root, that's been verified to work with Optimus M hasn't it?

Reggie.exe needs to run in Windows XP service pack 3 mode not vista.

I got it to go through but now I have no service and my phone isn't rooted so I can't get service back through the listed method.

in order to get your phone rooted you have to use adb push to transfer su and busybox to the /data/local/tmp/ folder and then use adb install to install the superuser.apk. after this restart your phone and it will be rooted. now you will have to flash the custom recovery in order to get your service back. its all in the directions.

I pushed su and busybox and installed superuser through adb and still no root.

When you typed su into adb shell did you give superuser permission on your phone?

you can check by opening the superuser app on your phone and it will tell you if you gave the cmd permission or not

now all you have to do is copy recovery-thunderc-m-v1.2.0-GNM.img and Flash_Image both unzipped into the root of your Sdcard and then in the shell type this

# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system

# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image

# chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image

# mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

# mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock5 /system

# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-thunderc-m-v1.2.0-GNM.img

after that just reboot and you will have your signal back

You have to change compatibility to Windows XP then it should register correctly.

Cool A Little Help?

Ok Guys. My OptM had no service, then I used the recovery method and now it can get service, and Z4 says it's Rooted, but I still can't seem to
#1) Use the recovery feature to load Rom1,
#2) WRITE files to the phone. IE I can Rename PhoneOn.mp3 or delete it, but I can't replace it.
I feel lost, this is where the noob help kinda dies off.

Thanks for all the hard work guys!

PS Yes I used the shell, both through my PC and thru Terminal

Well I was interested in rooting my phone just to get rid of bloatware. But this just sounds way to complicated.

Just an update. I am running 2.2.1 as it came in the box, and did remove bloatware, just can't seem to do much past that. It is fully operational, I just was hoping to throw on some wifi hotspot enabling firmware, or try to burn up my cpu overclocking it, or something. Huge thanks to all the top admins in here. I have gotten pretty far in almost no time thanks to all of your efforts, I Just hope I haven't reached the end of my modifying capabilities on my handset.

It is not that complicated, just read it carefully and it will be easy to root your phone.
