So I was messing with my girls phone fixing some stuff and I told her I wanted put my rom on there blah blah blah long story... Anyways I corrupted the boot, system, and recovery image and got stuck in bootloader (thank God she was sleeping) anyways I found out that like the optimus v that the bootloader is unlocked. I went ahead and flashed the system, boot and recovery images. Okay so how does this relate to root and why did I put kinda in there? Simple with this method you can install a custom recovery without going through the hassle of using z4 or the new method it should work on the 2.2.1 update. It does work with the 2.2 update for sure. Now for why I put kinda. I don't know how to get into bootloader mode without corrupting the images. Anyways here's a zip with everything you need I'm going to keep trying to find out how you get into bootloader that way I can finalize this.
