    I hope I'm following the correct protocol here.
    If not I apologize in advance

    I want to learn how to root my phone.
    I don't have the $ to get a newer and better phone so I thought I'd take this route so to free up space and get rid of all the crap apps. Besides, I like learning new things but don't want to brick this as it is my only phone
    Thanks

    Read this http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-all-things-root/743082-root-guide.html

    There are a couple of different ways to root your phone, read AndyOpie150's post and tli's post, both very good ways to root and install a recovery and rom.

    I'll let you decide, which guide you would like to follow.
    Most important is to read. read, read and understand the instructions before attempting this, if you don't understand something ask questions, but please read the guides thoroughly, make sure you understand each step.
