    I have an LG Optimus T, and I downloaded z4root 1.3.1; I selected the Temporary Root, it went through the process, and then z4root closed and brought me back to my home screen. I looked in my App browser and there is no Superuser app. I also tried to use an app that needs rooting and it tells me that my phone isn't rooted. What's the problem here? What do I need to do? As it's a temporary root, I can't turn my phone off or the rooting will go away (right?).... am I doing something wrong?

    Oh - and another detail - when I try to click on the z4 app, it "transparentizes" to show that it recognizes that it's been pressed, but then doesn't open. I pressed it a couple times and then I got this black screen, which I "home"d out of, and that's that. That's the most I get when I try to open it again.

    I've been trying this over and over again, rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling and shutting down and rebooting and I keep getting here. Stuck at a non-root even after I can finally get z4 to "work".

    -- Would I need to permanently root it in order to reboot it and see if it can finish the root and download superuser? I'm afraid that if I permanently root it I won't be able to unroot it because of the problems I'm having with opening z4 after I've "rooted".

    I was just given one of these, you have to use the rageagaintstthecage root.
    I think I had to Google it to find it. These forums are not that active.
    Anyways, I also had to use a Motorola tool to flash cwm, then rom manager to get cm7
    Rom manager didn't work for cwm

    Hi, user 54321.

    I've taken the liberty of moving your post to the Options T root forum for better help from other T users.

    Good luck!

    And user 54321, I will also welcome you. I don't have the answers, but just an observation or two. downthemachine mentioned the rageagainstthecage.bin exploit. However I think that is the same one that z4root uses as well.

    You might look into the "S-OFF" for an LG phone; I actually think this might be key, and/or try the perm root with z4root.

    good luck
