I have a Optimus S. With SW LS670ZVD.I Want to root it but dont know much about Android yet. I attempted to root with Optimus S controll Center and The app said it was rooted, but when I Attempted to get apps that had to get superuser permission, it said that my phone needed to be rooted. Then I tried to use Gingersnap, and it started the process but then got hung up when it said : stealing the Gingers Soul " I'm not sure what all this process entails, although I am Trying to get around to doing the reading on it. so can anybody tell me the easiest way to root this phone without knowing much about recovery kernels, and flashing roms. I am just looking to use the hotspot thing for free. Also since I have tried to root using 2 unsuccessful apps, should I do a factory restore? And if I do will it still make calls, or will I have to get something done to it at the sprint store?
