    I would like to add universalandroot ????. This is the offical link of released builds. Lg ally is not "officially" confirmed to be supported. Beta 5 is now released. And yes, it worked on mine ;).

    Universal Androot has worked on the Ally since 1.6. Rooting any other way is just ******ed.

    UA is how I rooted my Ally and it took all of 10 seconds to do. I even unrooted and re-rooted just to make sure I could if need be. And thank goodness for UA because I wasn't going near rooting if I had to do it manually. Those directions went way over this old guys head. :)

    The uninstall process for a rooted user is a little more complicated than just uninstalling from the Applications menu.

    You will need a terminal app or adb installed on your pc.

    You will need to open the terminal, type su, then rm the applications manually.

    There is a good THREAD about it

    Or you could use Titanium Backup? Just make sure you know what you are uninstalling.

    Hint: Don't uninstall gtalk or the default texting app.

    Velocity is a custom ROM for the LG Ally. The LG Ally ships with 2.1 only.

    I'm new to this site and I am hoping that someone can help me. I am using 2.1 update1 on my LG Ally, I am trying to get Universal Androot to work for the last 2 days. To no avail I keep getting the "failed! nofugoo" error. I have tried every version on every setting possible. If anyone could give me some insite I would appreciate it.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Tim

    z4root from the market has been confirmed to work as well. Make sure you have USB Debugging turned on.

    the root probably didnt work, try using z4root from the market instead, after that check to see if u have superuser as an app, then ti should work

    Thanks McLovlein13, Ever since the Software update the other day(i think 26th), made it unable to root with Universal Androot.

    FIXED! It was rooted I think, but i had the "Storage space is getting low" warning and didn't think it mattered...apparently I did, freed up space, rooted via z4root and everything is okey dokey! awesome, already downloaded titanium backup and granted it superuser permission to test, works great!

    I was not able to root with Universal Androot 1.6.1 or 1.6.2. I then went looking for z4root but it's not in the Market. So I went out and found a web link for it via Google and was able to install z4root from there. I was able to successfully root with z4root.
