I would highly doubt it, but give it a try. The easiest way to try is to download Astro from the Market. It's a good file manager, similar to Explorer on Windows. It will let you look through folders, delete them, etc.
Tried using Astro, but when I tried to uninstall moxier mail for example, it said it was unable to uninstall. Maybe I should try rooting. Is "un"rooting an Eve possible/as easy as rooting it? Also, does it void the warranty?
Technically you are voiding your warranty as you're making changes to the OS. However, you can always restore back to a stock Rogers / LG firmware if you ever have to send in your phone. Not sure if it completely reverses the root, but all the Rogers apps will be back.
I've already installed the drivers and adb,but adb shell shows no device.
The 2nd LG USB Modem installed as an Android Phone.
I'm using winXP,SP2 PRO, these are my steps.
enable USB Debugging mode,dial 3845....and enable root permission,restart my phone,connect my phone to PC,install the drivers.
win+R TO open CMD window,cd to the sdk tools directory,adb shell,shows device not found...
in my device manager,there's an android phone class,under it is an android Adb..
I've failed adb in ubuntu....
solved,I manually installed the driver in the sdk/usb_dr,use the adb in sdk/tools.
Hi! When I tap "Enable Root Permission" I'm asked to enter a root password.
i have a GW620 orange with a V10N (installed yesterday by d the software updater agent).
I searched through many forums and very people have the same problem, but nobody knows anything.
Can u help me?
It sounds like the LG V10N software has extra security when trying to enable root permissions. Unless you can somehow find out what the password is, you may be out of luck in rooting V10N.
i have a successfully rooted my phone thanks to the various posters here - thanks guys! You rock!
one tip - if you are not getting the # prompt, but getting the $ prompt instead, then you need to power-down your phone and start it up again. That solved the problem for me, at least. (others have said this in other forum posts, but I wanted to reiterate to raise it up on the Google hit list)
One question for the group - I got rid of most of the Rogers crapola (telenav, moxier*, etc), but there's a whole section of Roger's links still in my "applications" list. The my5 link, weather, home, stocks, etc.... I want rid of ALL of them, but I can't find where those links live... any idea? Probably in a database somewhere, but I haven't had time to explore all the different sqlite3 databases on the machine yet... guidance appreciated!
They went away for me when I deleted the Rogers.apk, The only thing I kept is the MyAccount.apk which I downloaded from the marketplace.
Here is a diff of what went away
How did you get rid of TeleNav? what was it called?
It's called tn55-android-LG_eve-2003.apk
Just a quick note - in another of the Android developers forums the hackers are quite convinced that they'll have a functional android 2.0 for the Eve within a couple of months! BUT!! IMPORTANT!! YOU MUST NOT UPGRADE TO 1.6 if you plan to use their hack to upgrade to 2.0. This is because the "secret code" to get to the root menu seems to have changed between 1.5 and 1.6, so you wont b e able to hack 1.6 until someone leaks that code...
Just a heads-up
I have one question and hopefully someone can answer this for me. I followed the directions to a tee as far as I know but when I get to step 9 (Type "adb install bin/Superuser.apk) I get a message that says "install: not found"
I'm unable to get passed this point.
I placed the superuser whitelist in my /sdk/tools/ directory exactly as specified.
Try typing the full path name of the superuser file instead. When I rooted my phone, i had to type the full path name of my superuser file, even though i updated my windows path to include the SDK/TOOLS folder.
Hi, Here is robbiechang come from china. now I have a LG GW620 in hand and faced software installation issue. so I follow all your steps and done it. but now the new problem that is I can't download the software from the electronic market.
Another question that is I don't know how to install the software into the SD card and uninstall original software such as Gmail, Google talk and etc.
Look forward to your prompt reply and high appreciate for that.
I answer myself. I reset the phone by follow steps and solved this problem.
settings---application---manage applications---download manager---clear data
Restart the phone and the problem was solved.
Anyway, thanks for everybody.
Im new to this,so apologies in advance for any obvious bonehead moves.
Im following the instructions so kindly laid out by britbloke, but....... my xp sp2,with lg drivers installed and showing up in Device Manager will not show android phone in list , nor will it show me sdk usb driver to update driver with. I have usb debugging enabled, and root permissions enabled. I am following britblokes instructions to the letter as far as I can tell. Any thoughts?
rootless in Vancouver
Is there anyway possible this could be made to work on the LG ally? That phone is really handcuffed by the LG Home app, and socialite, and there is no way to remove them
So on both Vista and XP I get stuck at the exact same spot every time. First I plug in my Eve and it has to find the drivers, Ive tried directing it to the folder specifically as well as using Device Manager and every time I get the error Unable to install driver....you might want to contact the website blah blah blah. Anyone know what I might be doing wrong.
(In Windows, you should hear the beep on a connected device and the LG drivers should find it OK. In Windows, open up Device Manager and you should see 2 devices with yellow exclamation marks beside it and the description "LG USB Modem" (I'm going from memory here, so that may not be 100% accurate).
Right click on the 2nd one, click "Update driver software", click "Browse my computer for driver software" then click "Let me pick from a list..." You should see "Android Phone" listed. Double click this and you should see a list of 3 options. Click on "Android ADB Interface" and click "Next". You'll probably see an "Update driver warning" box, so just click "Yes" to install it anyway.)
It`s this part that I am having dificulty with. Up to this part I have done everything correctly, including the Android SDK and installed all the addons found within.
This is my exact problem!
I had same problem, it was because none of the the vendor IDs defined in the android_winusb.inf file didnt match my device.
Back in device manager, right click the second LG USB Modem, properties, Details tab.
Mine shows USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_01\6&AF0B60F&0&0001
which doesnt match any entries in the INF file.
eg this was the first set of entries in winusb.inf (scroll down a bit to see them)
; HTC Dream
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0FFF
so I copied them & pasted in my vendor ID to make another set for my phone and inserted at the top:
; LG GW620
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_6171&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1004&PID_0FFF
saved the file, and tried update driver again, again pointing it to usb_driver directory
=> bingo, it found it, installed an Android Phone device with a child of Android Composite ADB interface.
I'm having the same issue (cannot stat 'bin/su': No such file or directory
). What is the path to the correct folder to place this? Currently, I have the whole SuperUser folder under android tools folder. Is that correct?
I will appreciate any feedback.
@Britbloke thanks for this guide.
EDIT: I solved this by using the full path to the superuser directory.
Original step: 5. Type "adb push bin/su /system/xbin/su"
Modified for my PC: Type: "[FONT="]adb push [/FONT]C:\Users\Masu\Desktop\Tools\android-sdk-windows\tools\Superuser\[FONT="]bin/su /system/xbin/su"[/FONT]
I had to do the same for steps 6 and 9 as well.
I am stuck on step 9 -[FONT="]Type "adb install push [/FONT]C:\Users\Masu\Desktop\Tools\android-sdk-windows\tools\Superuser\[FONT="]bin/Superuser.apk"
When I enter this commad I the following error:
177 KB/s (18880 bytes in 0.104s)
Any ideas or suggestions?
Update: After restarting my PC & Resetting my device. and moving the contents of the Superuser to android tools i was able to root LG GW620.
I really dont see the android phone that's supposed to be listed. Im running windows 7, USB debugging is checked and im sure i installed everything, help?
