I tried using z4root first, but I could not get the phone to root correctly. Then I tried SuperOneClick, and the phone said that it rooted, but it would not let me tether and use the internet. I tried using the Verizon hotspot which I had been paying for, but it no longer works. The computers can connect to the phone, but there is an alert saying there is a problem and there is no internet connection. I tried resetting the phone back to the factory condition, but there was no change. Also, connecting the phone directly to the computer via data cable is not working either. Does anyone know a way to either root the LG ALLY with Froyo 2.2.1 FRG83 or fix the phone so that I can continue to connect with Verizon hotspot?
