Default [ROOT KIT] OPTIMUS M 2.2.2 (Dummy-proof-3-click)

ALL CREDIT GOES TO BENALMIGHTY FOR FINDING THIS ROOT METHOD FOR 2.2.2 PHONES! ALL THANKS GO TO HIM.I JUST PUT THE FILES TOGETHER FOR EASE.

DOWNLOAD THE 2.2.2 ROOT AND RECOVERY KIT

RUN THE "RUN FIRST" BATCH FILE AND FOLLOW THE PROMPTS.

usb debugging must be on with an sd card inserted and mounted.

Select option A on the first screen and READ THE SCREEN AND MAKE SURE YOU DID WHAT IT SAYS TO DO!

once its finished,you will be root w/ GINM custom recovery on 2.2.2!

Feel free to download and flash my 2.2.2 stock DEBLOATED smooth ROM from HERE


!!AND AGAIN,HUGE THANKS TO "BENALMIGHTY" FOR THIS FIND!!!
!AND BIGGER THANNKS TO THE GUYS WHO MADE THE C++ ONE CLICK FOR US!

HOW TO ENTER RECOVERY-turn phone off..while its off,hold vol down,home and power until the 4 buttons at the bottom light up..then release the buttons and it will boot into recovery.

Alternate ways to boot into recovery include-Quickboot.apk (free on market)


WARNING:I URGE YOU,AFTER ROOT/RECOVERY IS COMPLETE.GO STRAIGHT INTO RECOVERY AND MAKE A BACKUP!! I CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!


VIDEO TUTORIAL THANKS TO "jerezer1985" FOR MAKING THIS VIDEO.MAKE SURE SURE TO THUMBS UP HIS VIDEO IF IT HELPED YOU OUT!

It means new OM's that come with the 2.2.2 update wont have to downgrade to root their phones.

I tried, and sadly (as I expected) ROMming brought back the reboot issue. Have to Yank the kernel from update and apply it to a custom ROM to see benefits.

So I think I found my next project.

It would work, but reboot problem returns.

Mike, ill pull your kernel if its the unmodified updated 2.2.2 kernel. Otherwise ill take it from stick update. At this point, ill take stock CPU speeds and stable over OC and reboot daily.

Sweet. This is what I wanted to see. ^-^ I'm glad the OM hasn't died, I don't have money for a new phone. Haha. Anyways, keep up the work.

Just want to verify before attemping...

Is this a root for 2.2.2 SW Version MS690ZV7 update that fixed the reboot issue? And without the addition of any custom rom's just bloatware removal, will the reboot issue return?

Yes, this will root that version. The reboot issue should not return unless you flash the phone with a rom or kernel built for 2.2 or 2.2.1. The fix for the reboot issue required an updated kernel, which those roms do not have. Though, its safe to remove the bloat yourself, or flash Kelso's 2.2.2 rom. (which I might try) There is a few threads on this forum the explain which apps are safe to remove and which aren't. Anyways, good luck.

I can't get the kitchen to repack the zImage into reppards CM7 ROM. Zip that comes out just wont flash on updated recovery in this pack.

Nor will it flash in jonedys.

Will keep at it though. I want stable CM7

Hello,
Please help out a newb and tell me what is an "OM"?
Google was no help. I am guessing "Operating Memory" maybe? Something similar to operating system? IDK
please advise... over,
Thanks in advance,

When flashing a ROM, Theme or whatever do you need to wipe all user data or do you just wipe data, cache and dalvick cache. I seem to get better results when I wipe all user data but it is a pain setting up my phone again. I guess I am asking can I flash a theme and still keep my contacts and everything on my phone the same?

Thanks

All custom recoveries have a shutdown and a reboot selection.

Clockwork uses the camera to make a selection, but the other two uses the menu button to make selections.

OK, thank you!
I've read many places that the RomManager & CWM has cause problems, is this still true for the OM?

I just don't want to screw anything up (again).

OK, thank you!
I've read many places that the RomManager & CWM has cause problems, is this still true for the OM?

I just don't want to screw anything up (again).

I have 3 Optimus M's. It only worked on one. I've since removed it and put GetItNowMarketing recovery on all of the phones. It does the job.

I myself have 2 Optimus' and had joneidy's recovery on my first one. Had a melt down and bricked it. So I reflashed the stock rom and put the GNM recovery on it. Got my second OM and it had/has the reboot issue so I also put the GNM recovery on it and have been flashing roms like crazy to see the best/stable one. So far I like the CM7 mods, but the stock debloated with the OC kernel seems to be less buggy on my one OM. My other one can run stable at 825/806 but I was getting rebooted when activated. Now that I don't have it active it doesn't reboot! And seems like the more flashing I do to my good OM, its starting to randomly reboot and seem buggy. I know its not the roms but I am and have been tempted to *228 and activate my other one to see if I get any different results.

@kelso
Does the new rom with edify support have a2sd also?
Thanks...

More questions-
Does the new rom have the throttle-be-gone built in? There was a separate download before... Now I only see it in the ICS Theme.

Yea,a2sd is baked in. Should be good upon first boot.

As for the throttle b gone. Since the ics theme seems to be the hotness,I just edited it to take out the throttle. Ill make a universal white clock with the throttle removed for those who don't want to use the ics theme.

When you say White clock, is that on the white status bar with black text? Like in the original EZ Rider ROM.

Hi,

In ADB I'm getting permission denied for su. I just want to get rid of that annoying mobileposse. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: Okay. I didn't know I had to nav to the SD card. Filesystem now remounted and mobileposse removed.

I had lost my hope on this phone and had thought this day would never come.. I got tired of my phone freezing every 5 seconds and all the hard times it gave me so I put it away in my closet and bought the Samsung Galaxy Indulge 4G. My mom wanted this phone after I got my new one, but I didn't want to give it to her because of all the problems. But now months after finally there is a way to root 2.2.2. This guide is pretty simple, after that I flashed over to kelsomod, and then to CM7 By Reppard.

Just letting you guys know that if you try to flash a ROM right after you are done rooting your phone, your phone will have a brick and stay stuck on the boot logo (You will still be able to go to recovery) to avoid that just flash the kelsomod rom right after rooting, and from then on, flash any LG Optimus M ROM you want.

I thought there's a different kernel when you update to 2.2.2 which helps a lot from 2.2.1 and lower regardless of what you use for ROMs.

Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

The updated 2.2.2 kernel works for some but not others. So far it is working better for me than the overclocked kernel.

Can anyone tell me what ROMS are ok to use for OM 2.2.2?
I really like the joneidy sense rom but not sure if it will work?

You can flash any rom for the om no matter firmware it came with stock.

@ mikekelso421 hey kelso love the root works awesomly. But one problem though. on youtube (and ive seen this problem posted somewhere else but no help) i get a green/purple line at the top of videos viewed in high qualtiy. also there is discoloration as well. mostly wrong colors or just black and white. do you know how i can fix this? the other person who posted the same problem used your mod (if thats how its called i get confused with this terminology mainly cuz im new to android flashing, except psp :lol)
