Hi, I just purchased the new LG myTouch (all myTouches are now made by LG) from tmobile and I have been trying to root it with no luck. I have been trying to use superoneclick but it always gets to step 7 and stops working. I made sure my SD card is unmounted, the phone has USB debugging turned on, I have tried the pdanet method, and I tried unplugging and replugging the USB cord but it always stops on step 7. The phone has android 2.3.4 but I have seen other threads where people with 2.3.4 got their phones rooted so why can't I? Any ideas?

Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place but there is no forum dedicated to this phone. I'm guessing because it just came out this month.

where can i find these threads? can you point me to it... maybe i can try and find something, or do something different and help out with solving it.

EDIT: did these threads say for the MTQ or was it just a thread for a random 2.3.4 device?

The threads I saw were just for a random 2.3.4 device. I saw another thread on xda with someone trying to root this phone but just like this thread no one is answering.

Success!
After several attempts to root via SuperOneClick 2.2, I tried something totally random from another LG rooting thread that seems to have worked. Install ADB, then do:

WINDOWS> adb shell
$ echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf
$ exit

Then run SuperOneClick 2.2 and it should root properly.

I will have to give this a try on one of my Windows PC's. Linux and SuperOneClick are not playing nice together right now.

Ditto! Root, & Superuser

== Instructions that worked for me ==
- Download myTouch Q drivers (Search "mytouch Q usb drivers" - Can't post links yet! XD )
- Check that adb recognizes device: C:\> adb devices
- Follow eamondaly's instructions:
Quote:

WINDOWS> adb shell
$ echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf
$ exit

- Run SuperOneClick v2.2
- Wait for phone to reboot (SuperOneClick seems to be paused)
- Reset USB debugging (mine was turned off after reboot)
- Wait for SuperOneClick to finish.
- Enjoy rooted phone
