    Here is a rooted 2.2.1 for vortex. I hardly changed anything.

    Changes from stock:
    Pre-rooted and boot is unsecured.
    Added flash_image and updated busybox.

    Rom makers feel free to use this as a base. Please no questions on how I dumped this take it as a gift. If some of you guys can email Lg for Vs660 kernel source under GNU/GPL request I'd make a OC updated kernel for you guys.

    does this prevent the new update from being applied? It still asks to update...

    I finally figured out how to flash it with your 2.2.1 image. It works beautifully.

    If I believed in God and all that shit I would call you a Saint.

    Hello Everyone,

    First I want to thank everyone for all the good information posted. My first post on here. Here goes.

    1 month ago I bought a verizon LG Vortex that was basic flashed to Cricket. (talk and text only)

    I activated with Cricket and have noticed that a lot of the apps on the phone I don't use. Ex: skype, vz navigator and so on.

    1st question...I was wondering if by rooting the LG VORTEX it will mess with the flash at all ? as in will it all of the sudden stop working with cricket.

    2nd question...how do I root the phone? Can anyone post a step by step on how to do it. Please.

    Thank you in advance for all the help.
