Talking LG Revolution Root: The Windows ADB Way

Remember, I am not at fault if you brick your phone, now, proceed.

If you are going to do a factory reset, or root or anything like that, make sure you have your 4G activated. [/QUOTE]

Connect your phone in charge only mode to install the LG Bootstrapper and drivers, or grab the LG Universal Drivers here.

Change your USB Mode to Internet Connection
Go into Settings/Applications/Development and ensure USB Debugging is turned on
If all goes according to plan, you should see the ADB Ladybug icon in your notification bar

I updated the Rootzwiki page with the same info found below.

Busybox actually comes installed by LG on the Revo, how awesome is that??

Download the rageagainstthecage binary
Download the SU binary
Move these files to the same directory your adb.exe is in.

Code:
The > and # characters below illustrate the prompt 
you should have, if you have the $ when you go into adb shell, 
exit out and type 'adb usb' then go back into adb shell and 
you should see the #
Open Command prompt (either use the Windows Key+R and type cmd or start/run, then type cmd)
32-bit users: >cd c:\program files\android\android-sdk\platform-tools
64-bit users: >cd c:\program files (x86)\android\android-sdk\platform-tools
Or >cd (whatever directory adb is in)

>adb devices (verifies you are connected)
>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage
(if the above command fails due to read-only, type 'adb usb' then 'adb root' to validate root status, then 'adb devices' again to verify connection)
>adb push su /data/local/temp/su
>adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage
>adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage
>adb shell (If this gives you a $ prompt instead of a # prompt, type 'su', if that fails, 'exit', 'adb usb' like above.)
#mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
#busybox cp /data/local/temp/su /system/bin/su
#chmod 6755 /system/bin/su

Verify the file is in place w/correct permissions

#cd /system/bin
#ls -l *su
-rwsr-sr-x root root 26248 2011-05-29 01:09 su
(permissions name access filesize date time filename)

At this point, you may way to remove the files you put in /data/local/temp (optional):
#rm /data/local/temp/su
#rm /data/local/temp/rage

continue with commands
#reboot

Download and install SuperUser from the Market

Thanks Zennmaster, _mrbirdman_ for finding the linux routes and birdman for helping me out, and droidx8971 for helping me find all the information possible!

Now go bug XDA to create a Revo forum!

Nicely done. Followed the steps and it appears to work perfectly.

My antivirus software had to be disabled as it kept removing rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin as a virus. Once that was done however everything worked exactly as described. Thus far its not a brick so I assume I am good as gold.

Now to wait for a recovery mod so when I start hacking the OS apart to remove the bloat I can easily recover should I hose something. LOL.

yeah I downloaded Titanium backup pro 3.8.2 for the time being. Never used it, figured I give it a shot and see about freezing some stuff.

I see you are from Omaha. I am originally from a small town outside Lincoln.

Thank you for contacting LG Electronics


------Reply to Your Inquiry-------


Hi Andy,

LG does not support altering this phone from the original manufacture state or any rooting of this device. To do so will void your warranty with LG Electronics should you need any repair service or software flashes. We will not be releasing any pertinent hardware or software related information. It is at this point considered proprietary. I would hope you understand.

Eventually they will release the source. They always do. That will be good for doing roms. With a recovery mod you can get around needing the source cuz you can just nand backup your own phone, mess it up, then restore it back if need be.

Can't wait. Really want to get the bloat off this. Hate Verizon apps.

Just freeze them so they don't run/show up in the drawer.

So awesome, thank you! For some reason when I downloaded the SU it acquired a .txt extension somehow so it wouldn't push. I redownloaded and everything worked like a charm!

It will but won't really do you any good because you don't have a custom kernel. You may be able to under clock though.

Hey guys! Grand Island native here.

Im looking at this phone myself as 4G comes to West Michigan next month. Tried the TB and between the battery and reboots, good lord. Was wanting to hold out for the Bionic, but the largest concern i have is the lack of attention this phone seems to be getting. I love theming and ROM's but have nary the skills to make them (just modify them).

We might have to put Stetson and GunnerJim on the fast track to all things dev for this phone. Shouldnt be a problem if you both quit your jobs and make it full time learning and developing. Hop to it!

I can only hope so. There is just something about adding some life to menu's and icon's that make the phone even more exciting. I gotta tell you that I am really digging the looks and style of this phone just from messing with it in the store.

Now if I could get myself to pull the trigger and the other things fell in line, I would be all over it.

Ehhhhh... I had my Droid for a year and a half and loved it... never felt the need to root it but will all the Bloatware on the Revo I may just do it but I'm scared that I'll be the one to brick my device. I want to root my droid first to get some experience.

If I get brave I'll be back but thank you for the walk-through.

sure thing! Make sure you root the D1 the long way, not the one click way, if you want to gain the experience to do your Revo.

Get titanium backup and freeze the apps you don't want or use. You cant even tell bing is on my phone with out digging deep.

Welcome to root.

I got titanium backup (free version) and am busy uninstalling all the crappy crap like Rockband and TuneWiki. TuneWiki might even be a decent app but the icon makes me want to punch babies in the throat.

unless you hit the hard search key and nothing happens, lol!

btw, working with xeodoxus to deodex this thing right now, so it'll be ready once a custom recovery is made.

lookatthat! i don't even have the phone anymore but can't help working on it, lol. There are a couple apps i want, the deskclock (alarm clock) is the main one, i like having to do the puzzle before i can snooze it.

hey now, i haz a baby, lol!

Be careful what you uninstall, i would recommend buying TiBu so you can just freeze stuff. since we can't get into recovery atm, it'd be bad if you make your phone unusable, as there is no way to put it back to stock. Factory restore only works [properly] if the system files aren't modified/deleted.

*quickly restores all the un-installed apps he removed*

Luckily I backed up everything before uninstalling. I'll get TiBu and freeze all the annoying crap.

@stetsonaw if you don't have the phone anymore, what do you have?

Thunderbolt. I can't have a stock phone... it's not in my nature. Good part is, I just helped Xeudoxus get xUltimate updated to work with the Revo for deodexing... so once we have clockwork, it can be themed! Ya know, until custom roms come out.

Default Well S#!t...

I'm not entirely sure what I did but now my Revo doesn't seem to want to boot. It does the LG Logo then the animated techno Logo then it goes to a black screen and it just vibrates sporadically. I did freeze some applications using TiBu and prevented some apps from loading on boot using *insert app here once I find the name on Android Central*

Is there a way to boot it into Recovery or Safe mode to disable this or remove the block?

Hold down the power and volume buttons when you boot up. This will take you to "recovery mode". From there follow the prompts to factory reset. Be careful what you freeze bro.

If there was a way to get into the REAL recovery mode, I would still have the revo.

Is there a specific time frame that you need to hold the buttons? I hold all three down until the animation starts and nothing changes

Sorry, meant power and volume down. Start with the phone off then do it and hold it until you get to recovery. Look for of revolution recovery mode on youtube, and I put up a bid a while back.
