    So I'm trying to root and flash a rom for my girlfriend. I've rooted my HTC Desire, changed recoveries, changed the memory partitions. So I'm not completely stupid on the subject. But her phone is pissing me off. I have successfully rooted her phone. But I can't for the life of me get a custom recovery on her phone. Any help/ suggestions would be appreciated.

    Looks like its been awhile since this has been active so I hope someone there is monitoring the post. My wife has the optimius S and I was looking to root the phone for her.

    I took a look at the op but her baseband is different. its:LS670MVD_60401001

    will any of the ones posted work on her phone?

    How about some more details on what happened and what you've already tried to fix the problem?
    Maybe try the following:
    1) Pull the battery from the phone.
    2) Plug the phone into power. You should see just the physical buttons light up most likely. If you see the message to insert the battery already, proceed to step 4.
    3) If you just have the lit buttons (but no screen message), keep unplugging and plugging the phone back in until the message to insert the battery comes up on the screen. Some people have said it takes a dozen attempts or more, but it's always done it for me after about 6 tries.
    4) Once that message is on screen, insert the battery again. Your phone should show the LG Logo briefly, and then eventually go into the battery charging animation. If it doesn't get to that animation, then this isn't likely to work sadly.
    5) With the animation onscreen, hold down the power button until the phone starts to boot again. Let it go once the LG Logo appears.

    Also, since you've rooted your phone already have you rebooted into 'Recovery Mode'? (simultaneously pressing the 'Power' button, the 'Home' button, and the 'Volume-Down' button)

    How about emergency mode? Maybe the kdz or kp500 unbrick methods would work.
