    Hey computerman098,

    Have you tried the Windows instructions posted in the forum? They work for Windows 7 - I just rerooted my wife's LG Ally after she received the V8 over-the-air update from Verizon (and subsequently lost her root privileges).

    Pretty sure you're going to need to connect to a computer, so hopefully that's not an issue. Good luck!

    Computerman, that's not a problem with using Windows. The process is working just fine for you. Everyone runs into this, and the answer is to just keep trying that command until you get the '#' prompt. Some people like to fiddle with things, like the SD card, or exiting and restarting the adb shell. I think it really just comes down to trying over and over until it works; if fiddling helps you stay motivated to try more times, fine.

    Seriously Computerman, I've rooted an Ally 4 times now.

    If it brings you back to the $, take out SD and try again.
    Still $? Put SD in and try again.
    Still? Take SD out.
    Still? Put SD in.
    Not working after 5-10 tries? Exit and restart adb shell.
    SD in. SD out. SD in. SD out.

    I would guess it has something to do with the phone's system trying to deal with the constantly changing file structure.

    Sort of like when your kid asks: "Well... Can I not, not, not, not, not get a new toy?" and you're like... "Uhhh.....".

    I was able to get it rooted, just a series of removing sdcard.
