    Ok im new to android, my dad got a zio, and while it was a crappy phone, android seems interesting, so i am dumping my blackberry and getting an lg optimus s, ive been pretty excited about this and have read about rooting and custom roms, i was wondering if anyone could post a tutorial on how i can root this phone and post a few roms that you think are worth flashing to the phone. i have heard about z4root but on the site it said there was an update that said that method had been patched in an update, and i assume that since i will be getting mine in 2 days, that update will already be installed.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Here is a compilation of various tutorial threads on rooting the Optimus S. There is a good chance that you don't have the latest OTA update since it was pushed only a few weeks ago.
