    I'm trying to help my friend root his Optimus C. He has version 2.3.5.

    To do a basic root, couldn't I just find a 2.3.3 update and downgrade it to that. Then just use superoneclick. Am I correct? Any information is appreciated.

    (Note: I'm trying to do just a basic root, no custom ROM's or anything.)

    Don't see a reason it wouldn't. I used that method for mine

    Ok, thanks for the reply.
    Just to make sure, the worst that'll happen using the oneclick program, if it didn't work for any reason, it wouldn't hurt the phone right?

    Eh not sure about that. If you have doubts don't do it. Not really that worth it. But if I were to guess I'd say you can restore it if anything goes wrong.

    Gingerbread stock was released to the C??? The optimus M never got an update :( and the M and C are basically twins....
