Hey Jake, welcome to our AndroidForums!

I've moved your thread over to our all-things-root sub-forum for the Optimus S for you.

I'm sure the folks that are knowledgeable about rooting this device will chime-in shortly.

Is that me you are referring to, (I'm using the same user name there as I am here). If it was me, thanks ... and you can ignore the following text, I'll post it for the advantage of any other person wanting to root the LG Optimus S

And here is giantpune's (that root method's author/creator) original thread over here at AF:


Wow! Wish I knew that a week ago :eek:

I've been able to move / delete some system apps too ... though deleting (not movable) "Sprint Installer" causes most of the phone functions to freeze up ... plugging the phone into the computer via USB made it function again, so I re-installed the "Sprint Installer" to get it back to function more properly now.

Looking into Link2SD now ...
