This is about as sweet as it gets. A video walkthrough made for dummies like me n you to show us the complete root process. I did it just now. Worked like a charm. I was afraid to before because I didn't want to mess up my phone. We all have reasons for rooting. I just want to be able to take advantage of my phones potential. If you can't root after watching this video, well then you don't need to root. It even shows you how to unroot or reverse the rooting. awesome!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK4IJ4yZQGM&list=FLrWe8n1Hht0pKYIt7fUHaEA&feature=mh_lolz * ps- my phone is a virgin mobile optimus V slider ver 2.3.4 which I bought a month ago from best buy. (Dec 15, 2011) the website to GET the root tool http://androidnerds.net/2011/10/08/lg-esteem-oneclickroot-now-ready/ use the LG esteem root link. That page also has the drivers info. WATCH THE VIDEO FIRST.. it will make COMPLETE sense on what you have to do.
