What exactly is rooting, and why would i need/want to root my Lg Optimus M?
~Thank you for the help.
Seriously not to be rude, but if you don't know then you probably don't need to do it. Too much can go wrong and if you do not even know what it is then you are more than likely going to end up one of the horror stories of all that went wrong.
I did my research.. That was a prematurely asked question.. XD
Anyways, i have one more question.
After i root my phone, what is the exact steps i should take after?
As in: People have tutorials on flashing ROM's and such.
Is this needed?
Its not needed but it does make your phone look really cool lol.
I have been rooted for about six months (two weeks after I got my phone) and I have had no desire or need to flash a ROM. I mainly wanted to be able to do "real" backups with Titanium and be able to under-clock with SetCPU to save battery. Titanium also allows for moving apps to SD that normally do not allow it and that saves precious memory.
If I need to root to be able to copy text of phone to paperI want to do it. Can someone please tell me how to root.
I don't understand what you are talking about. As for how to root, look at the All Things Root subforum.
