I have seen other threads, but none of wich i felt were complete, nor in the right areas. I think this should be put in development area, but maybe here for now.

Phone Info:
Model Number: LG-E739
Android Version: 2.3.4
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-perf
Build Number: GRj22
Software Version: V10k-OCT-11-2011

There have been two ways found thus far that have been reported as working. I have had the 1st way work for me and the 2nd way has not. So i can attest the 1st way worked for me, and even stays rooted after reboot.

1st.>

First download these files...
Driver
Unlockroot
Super User

Then after all files have downloaded, install driver first.
When your driver is installed, run Unlockroot program. Click on root, and after a few prompts, your phone should restart, and be rooted.

Now install Super User.apk file from market, and to verify you have super user privlages, download terminal emulator and type "su" in prompt screen folowed by enter. if the file path changes from $ to #, you have sucessfully rooted your LG-Mytouch.



2nd.> Superoneclick 2.2
Source: androidcentral

Hi, found SuperOneClick 2.2 wich have a folder named ADB, I think I could use instead, btw I downloaded it from shortfuse.org. So far this is what i have got for instructions:

- Download SuperOneClick 2.2 (shortfuse.org/?page_id=2)
- Download myTouch drivers (lg.com/us/mobile-phones/mobile-support/mobile-lg-mobile-phone-support.jsp)
- Check that adb recognizes device: "X":\(ADB Folder Here)> adb devices
- Follow eamondaly's instructions:


"X":\(ADB Folder Here)> adb shell
$ echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf
$ exit

- Run SuperOneClick v2.2 (Instructions here are a little clouded for me here, not sure what to do other than hit the root button)
- Wait for phone to reboot (SuperOneClick seems to be paused)(Dont know what he means here)
- Reset USB debugging (mine was turned off after reboot)(Dont know what he means here)
- Wait for SuperOneClick to finish.
- Enjoy rooted phone


ROMS:
I have not yet found a plae with roms that work with the LG-Mytouch. If anyone knows of any or how to make my own please enlighten me.

Thanks.

hey man, i know you're trying to help out, and thanks for this guide. but nonetheless, this isn't the place to put it. this is the HTC Glacier Mytouch 4G forums, NOT the LG Mytouch.

once again, i know you're just trying to help out, but please, don't post about the LG Mytouch in the HTC Mytouch 4G thread. thanks
(i'll hit the thanks button for your work)

There are general android forums for phones that don't have a forum. You should really put this there cause your going to get nothing from us

There is a better chance of someone in the general forum in helping him then in here. Yes there are people here that know about android phones but I doubt many of us know about lg phones. That is what is so great about the general forum cause there is a better chance that a person that knows about lg phones might answer. If you have ever read the general forum it is far from a noob meeting ground

But are phones share the same name, so some people would be inclined to see if we know anything or have any ideas

Why would we know (or even care)? Just because our phones share the same 'Mytouch' logo doesn't mean they're the same. This is the HTC Glacier, not some LG bull crap.

I'm not trying to argue or start something. What I posted goes to the average person who just started rooting an modding there phones. Believe it or not, the typical person isn't that great at researching stuff. Hell I even asked some of my Co-workers, what would they do. An they said roughly the same thing, check the area with the same name, just in case. That's my case an my lawyer agrees with me, now it's up to the jury to decide.

Nah, this is the MT4G forum. A forum for the new LG's will be created soon enough, and until then they can be discussed in the General Android forum.
