Spent some time with giantpune fixing poot and testing on my Venture. Success! See his post regarding the Optimus Elite: http://androidforums.com/elite-all-things-root/612914-optimus-elite-root-apk.html Don't forget to click "Thanks" on his post! Just above the attached files, there is a Sendspace link. That's got the version that will run on the Venture. Or, use this QR code: Once you have the .apk, install it. An easy way is to copy it to the SD card and use a file manager (I like AndroZip because it's small). The QR code probably skips straight to installing it for you, I didn't get to test it. Then find Poot in your apps and run it. It will require you to install Ministro II. Once that's done, it will download additional libraries. Now you're ready to go. Run Poot, tap the button to Poot your phone, install SuperUser, install RootCheck. Then enjoy...install BusyBox, use a file manager to delete/rename that godawful Virgin Mobile boot sound in /system/media/bootsound.wav, whatever you want, you are root. You can delete Ministro and Poot once it's done. AWW YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
