Hi and Welcome.

Got to the Optimus V All Things Root Forum. You can get a lot of help there. Start with this thread,[HOW-TO] Simplified Root + Recovery + Custom ROM That's what I followed about a week ago to root mine. Any questions just ask. People there are happy to help you.

*Edit* I may have jumped the gun. What kind of phone do you have?

There's different 2.2 there's 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 which one is very important. Also look in your apps if you see super user app then gingerbreak worked

Yes, that's the same guide I used. I don't remember how long but I don't think it was 10 minutes. What is it doing? What have you done so far?

If you have super user you are rooted gingerbreak won't install it unless it roots. Now you need to finish the steps in root without a computer.
