    Yeah you have to downgrade to 2.2.1 to root.

    There have been claims of gingerbreak rooting a 2.2.2 optimus. It doesn't work every time and no one that I know of has found how it does work on the odd occasion.

    Every optimus I have touched (20+) has taken root via gingerbreak and flashed all the cm7 roms (not on each device, of course).
    2.2.2 is mostly a security update to make root harder to obtain afaik.
