I am back up and running after an initial freak-out. I was very happy to discover that your method even roots the Factory Reset as well or am I completely wrong about that?

it's not a matter of it roots the factory reset, it just doesn't delete the root files or the su binary.

Is there anything I need to do then? It's randomly rebooted on me twice today... is that something I should be concerned about?

@stetsonaw... Do you have the deodexed android.policy.jar? I was about to go through that whole process, but you may have saved me the trip. I'm trying to flop my way through getting a clockwork recovery made for this device. Hopefully we get it done within this week?

Thumbs up I'm making a note here... HUGE SUCCESS

I just managed to root my new LG Revo... I had a mini freak out because TiBu couldn't get root when I first downloaded but I rebooted and it worked just fine. Now I just need to get my works Wifi to be a little more consistent.

Thank you once again to @stetsonaw for all his assistance.

Ok, so I've rooted and had to to a factory reset for other reasons. How do I get it to recognize my SIM Card? I know its not bricked, but darn, it feels that way!

NVRMND- finally held it long enough to get it. Whew! I do wish we have a better recovery module, but that too is coming. So now, I start from scratch and see if I can't screw this lovely phone up again!!!!

Edit again!! Still now working, hangs on activation and says to reinsert the SIM Card. ANyone???

go into your settings and make sure that LTE or whatever is turned on, then try activation? or will it let you get past that? you are activated already, so shouldn't have to do it again.

Hey guys, I am having an issue trying to root my Revo. When I try to push the rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin file over to my phone I get the error:

failed to copy 'rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin' to '/data/local/temp/rage': Not a directory

I know this means that the /rage directory doesn't exist, but is push supposed to create this directory or am I supposed to do it manually? If so, how can I create it manually, I looked through the list of adb commands but I don't see anything to create directories.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, so a little pre-mature with the response here. I was able to use the adb shell to check my directories, and I see you can use the mkdir command to manually create them.

Now my issue is the when I try to cd to /data/local/temp I get the error:

can't cd to temp

Anyone know why this is? I am in su (#) mode. Also if I try to manually create the directory using #mkdir /data/local/temp/rage I get the error:

failed for /data/local/temp/rage, Not a directory

Duhhh! I am trying to MAKE the directory. I hate those kind of redundant, non-informative errors!

Thanks for the advice stetsonaw, I do believe you are right about being in the 4G mode before you do a factory reset. I ended up back at Verizon with a Bricked phone, and a fried Sim Card. The rep there, who I've worked with since before the days of my BB Storm, helped me out, he ended up toasting 4 more sim cards before they just gave me a new phone.

So the lesson here is....If you are going to do a factory reset, or root or anything like that, make sure you have your 4G activated.

when you are pushing the files, you don't want to be in adb shell. just from the regular command prompt, adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp

Make sure your path that you are in via the command prompt (windows path) matches where the file is. easy way, go to the folder that adb, rage, and su are in, hold shift, right click in white space, then 'Open command prompt from here'.

ok, so , new phone and a new attempt to root. Third time through the instructions that work like a charm (on my first phone). I keep getting the $ . When I follow the directions, exit, adb usb, then adb root. I get an error that says "adbd can not run as root in production builds."

any thoughts? Same computer that I've rooted with before. I re downloaded the bin and su file. Not sure where to go now.

When i this su i get an error and the instructions say to type adb usb. An when i type adb root to confirm root (as specified in the directions) is when i get the big error.

Its a new morning so I'm going try again.

edit:- nope still getting the error "permission denied" when I type in SU at the $ prompt.

Stetsonaw, I appreciate all of you help.
I'm up to doing it for the 6th time today. I'm going to re-download rage and su and try again for the last time before I go to the one click and see if that works.

And finally it works. Don't know why or how. but it does. Thanks!!! now on to recovery!!

Have you tried doing it the manual way from ADB? Scripts can be unreliable.

i was under this impression this was the manual way, but i solved the problem regardless: insert an active SIM and it works as it should. interesting that that is a requirement, but this thing is impossible to root when unactivated.

s1c sometimes doesn't work, when it doesn't, go with this method.

I am tempted to fly to Omaha and ask Stetson if he will root my phone for me in exchange for a nice bottle of wine or dinner out.

I'm a stay-at-home mom with a baby, so my husband would be footing the bill. He's listened to me bitch about the Bing situation so much, at this point I doubt he'd mind. Your wife probably knows a trustworthy sitter.

I have been experiencing this exact same issue. When I go into the shell I get the $ and not the #. I tried restarting from the top of the instructions, but unfortunately it still does not work.

thoughts?


Edit: Just to clarify, this is what I am getting: C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
$ su
su
su: permission denied

When I try the adb usb and then adb root, it says that adb can't run as root in production version

I'm up to doing it for the 6th time today. I'm going to re-download rage and su and try again for the last time before I go to the one click and see if that works.

And finally it works. Don't know why or how. but it does. Thanks!!! now on to recovery!!
Lucky you, Ufkal. I've tried probably more than 10 times and still could not get past the $ the problem (kept getting permission denied when entering "su"). I also saw several postings of the same problem with no further help. Any suggestion, please !

If you got the update, right now it's next to impossible to root.

well, my LG Rev version is 2.2.2 which according to some threads was able to be rooted. But yeah, this version was pushed down by Verizon a while back. Are you saying 2.2.2 is impossible to root for now? Thanks!

Easy One click Root and Unroot for LG Revolution with ClockworkMod recovery | The Android Soul

if you guys still need a way to root then use this link,its easy and only a few clicks,also it installs cwm and lotsa awesome recovery options.this is the best tool there is for this phone.it will even root froyo 2.2.2 (v6) and the new gingerbread(v7). old method of rooting v6 was to flash it to v4 but that is a nasty process.this tool will do it all very smooth and easy.i hope this helps.

does anyone know how to flash the stock rom and reinstall it?i accidentally disabled my home screen and now i need help getting it back

Question

Hey guys. I am new to rooting. I have what may be a silly question. When you say "make sure you have your 4G activated" does that mean I have to have a 4G connection at the time? Or does it just mean make sure I haven't somehow disabled it in the settings? If I live in a place where I don't get 4G connection, can I still root without problems?

Guys, complete newby here. I have been researching rooting my phone since I bought it over a year ago. Well, today I had a little free time so thought I would go for it. I have the phone on de-bug, its on internet connection, but can not get the prompt to work... have tried many times!! Can someone give me a boost?
