    root - for versions prior of 2.2.2 use Z4root, for version 2.2.2 use gingerbreak (i used v1.20)


    sd card storing - to move apps to sd card that are listed as "phone only" in App2sd (app that moves apps from internal storage to sd storage) use Titanium Backup to move to sd card. open titanium backup and click the backup/restore tab, press and hold on app you want to move, a menu comes up, choose "move to sd card". (this gets the apps App2sd could not)

    pesky preinstalled apps - also use Titanium Backup to "freeze" unwanted apps you dont want to ever use. BE CAREFUL ON WHAT YOU CHOOSE. LEAVE "LG HOME" ALONE. stick with the basics, demo's, app pack, drive smart, car home, memo, messaging, swype, twitter, visual voicemail, wifi calling...

    after doing the above my battery lasts more than twice as long.

    gingerbreak v1.2 download link:
    GingerBreak-v1.20.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    z4root v1.3:

    Where do people like me (total newby to android and this more-confusing-than-my-phone forum) that don't even have a clue what "root" means (I wish I knew) go for less high-tech mumbo-jumbo conversion? I want to ask somebody where to set my "cookie" options. I tried to read about and understand them to no avail. I would like a simple true/false or yes/no answer. Or maybe there's no easy answers. Sorry to bother you. I'll go look for my classroom now.

    No. I've been here before. I at least know that cause I found that other thing I wrote here earlier. Where's one of them guides that said something about introducing myself but wouldn't tell say where. Actually I think I was talking to myself way back then too. This ain't fun no more. Maybe someone will follow the smell...

    I just tried to use Titanium Backup to move an app to SD, and it's been stuck "Processing" for about 30 minutes. Nothing special about the app, as far as I can tell (Reliant Energy app to check home electricity usage, no reason it shouldn't move to SD).

    I had to power-cycle the phone to make it quit trying. When I went back, the app had been successfully moved to the SD card. All's well that ends well, I guess... Is this something you've come across before, by any chance?

    Oh, and to answer "sleedeane"s question about how a noob would go about rooting for the first time... I'm a total noob myself, so I put the step by step process in a thread in this subforum (titled "Bloatware Must Die!"). Though the thread's pretty old, so they've probably figured it out already.

    Edit: Just FYI, the "stuck" condition in Titanium Backup went away when I changed one of the settings. Click "Problems?" in the app, or see the "Bloatware" thread for details.)

    Is the world conspiring to give me a virus before I can root?? I've tried several links to the Z4root . I get virus warnings from all of them. Even when I tried attaching it to my email (send to myself/sideload) Google says "virus threat". I ain't sending that to my phone.
