    I will admit that I am clueless when it comes to the phone...but there are a bunch of programs that always seem to be running even though I have never used them.

    voice search
    voice dialer
    gmail
    are a few....would rooting the phone to delete all that I don't use (twitter, scavenger, airgchat, calendar, email, latitude, my account, news/weather, places, virgin mobile live, where) it just seems like a lot of bs stuff that i don't need.

    is there a site to down load the root program?

    Thanks!!

    Here is a link that tells you exactly how to root: http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-...-how-simplified-root-recovery-custom-rom.html. Follow the instructions to the letter and you should be able to successfully root your rom.

    And here is a list of apps that come with the Optimus V that are safe to remove. http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-all-things-root/307617-list-bloatware-lg-optimus-v.html



    Once you are rooted, get Titanium Backup from the Market. You can uninstall the bloatware/apps you do not want with it.

    No problem! My other advice would be to e very careful when uninstalling other system apps (other than the bloatware). It could lead to bad things if you are not careful! Here is a page regarding system apps that are safe to remove, and how to remove those system apps in the safest way possible. Barebones - CyanogenMod Wiki

    It is also important to install a custom recovery so you can make a backup of your system(this is called a nandroid backup) in the recovery in case you delete something that makes your system crash,freeze, or have force close problems.This will allow you to restore your system to what it was before you messed up. Also, once you root your phone you must never use the factory reset in the privacy setting in the phones menu or it will brick you "V".

    That is only if you change the custom recovery correct? I am running rooted stock do I have to worry about it?

    If your rooted and delete or add something that makes your system freeze,go into a boot loop,or have force close problems,how would you be able to straightened it all out?
