    differant phones are set up differantly.. so maybe, maybe not... howver this phone is a clone of the LG Revolution, which has been out for 6+ months.. so rooting it is most likely the same as that phone.. again cant guarantee that, however the screen shots of this phone show gingerbreak running and applying root.. so maybe it is alreadyr ootable.. now just need the other components for it, recovery.. and roms lol

    Gingerbreak didn't work - at least, it didn't work for me.

    Anyone else have any other results with it?

    JWhipple, How do you like your NEW device. How is the battery life so far?

    Loving it so far - haven't had it off the charger long enough to really gauge yet though. I've got it hooked up at the moment, going to try SuperOneClickRoot to see if that gets us anywhere.

    {EDIT} Hmmm... Doesn't appear that my PC, although setup with the Android SDK, is recognizing the ADB interface even though USB debugging is enabled on the phone... So... I'll tinker with it a bit more before declaring it a dead end.

    {EDIT} I got ADB working - had to enable "Internet connection" mode - AKA wired tethering. SuperOneClick hangs on the right pane saying Rooting device... - Step #6 ... GRRRR!

    The Revolution is also a 2.2 Froyo phone - not a 2.3.4 Gingerbread phone. WORLD of difference.

    Not yet and nope - just hope that a factory restore fixes it!

    I wonder when the LG Revolution 2 with Gingerbread 2.3 is released on maybe 10/20/11 if it will have the same root procedure. It appears it might have dual core and dual band cdma and gsm. These specs are rumored as of now. I was curious if a dual core is rooted the same way. With it being multi band, will it be able to work on metropcs.

    Even though it is considered a world phone.It doesn't use the freq range used for Metropcs.

    I guess we wait to see which phone is rooted first to help with the Esteem.

    Hello all.. I am a LG Revolution user, we have only been able to root the original firmware. There was an OTA update a few months ago and since then we can't root. So we actually have to downgrade the phone back to original firmware using LGNPST and then root if someone accidentally upgraded their phone. The exploit used for the original firmware was ragaagainstthecage which only works with Android 2.2.1 VS910v4 firmware, not v6. I will continue to watch this forum if you guys get lucky.. Supposedly the LG Revolution 1 will get gingerbread sometime in October.
