    Hi,

    I'm new here to this site because I just bought an LG Optimus M and I wanted to join.

    This is my first Android Phone and all I have to say about this is that I LOVE androids!

    But I admit that I am a noob to the whole "rooting" scene. And I have a couple questions that I hope some of you can answer.

    1. What is a rom?
    2. What's the difference between rooting by rom and rooting by sdk files ?
    3. How can I root my LG Optimis M (2.2.1) and upgrade to 2.3?
    4. Does anyone know when LG will release the 2.3 update?

    Thanks

    there's a whole subforum here for the Optimus M called All Things Root. Lots of interesting stuff in there to help you.
