Love that there is a thorough guide here for rooting the Ally, etc. I believe I've made a fair effort, short of just giving a try to see what happens, to find an answer here and at mAndriod Connection. If there's a thread I missed, just point. TY. I took the 2.2.2 ota update via that LG update app they recommended. I just wasn't thinking at the time about rooting. Stupid. My previous device was a G1 and I was on the root bandwagon since Jesusfreke. Always good times rooting the G1. But the G1 never seemed as complicated as the Ally is. There were no cab files to run on your desktop, no dalvik-cache to worry about... But I can deal with extra steps because the likes of Trident and getitnowmarketing are awesome and make awesome guides. But I took the damn 2.2.2 update. And it's my understanding that I don't have access to the bootloader. And I have shipped version VS740ZV8. And I can't get into recovery even if I do get root via gingerbreak or something. So am I SOL, or is there a way for me to downgrade to V06/2.2.1 and get root and custom recovery? I'd really, really like to get on that sweet Velocity. I'll be in this device at least a full year longer. Thanks any/all.
