    Same thing for me. I've now tried it about 2-3 times and the same thing keeps happening. I've been following the directions from this thread and from Tablet-Crunch: LG Optimus T - Rooting, Recovery, ROM Installation, and Overclocking as well as the video linked to it and I get nothing.

    Also, I dont have a LG splash. When starting up the LG logo shows up and then I get the T-mobile jingle. I have to put in all my info again and then all my downloaded apps are gone and all my settings reset, the only difference is that now theres an app called SuperUser.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Pls and Thank you!

    are you rooted? type su in terminal before you type anything else. If you see ' access denied,' then you need to root the phone first before you can monkey around.

    Hi, It might work better if you put the files on the root of sd card. That just means not in a folder.
    Also I got an error when doing it. Th error can be ignored and you go ahead anyway and it works. Hope it works out four you.

    Hi Flangerboy.
    If your phone is rooted and boots the easiest way would be to install clockwork mod and then flash a custom recovery.

    If it will not boot then your only option is to boot into the recovery you have and reload the firmware through kdz.
    Kdz may report errors but if you leave go all the way through it should work anyway.

    By the way what are you trying to do?:)
