Default SuperOneClick 2.3.2 Root Attempt LG Optimus Net

I am running Android 2.3.4 on a LG Optimus Net L45C Smart Phone used under the NET10 (owned by Tracfone) service.

Following the instructions from the SuperOneClick author regarding LG phones and 2.3.2 I get as far as the following statement in the right pane of SuperOneClick 2.3.2 :

Killing ADB and restarting as root ... enjoy!

When I look on the Smart Phone in the Android Tab, There is no SU icon that appears prior to rebooting the phone. After rebooting the phone there is no SU icon that appears. The process was repeated 3 times with the same result: The phone is not rooted. Anyone with similar experience?

The attached pdf file shows the output from the right and left panes of SuperOneClick 2.3.2 during the root attempts.

SuperOneClick setting used was for Alternate ADB Parser.

Default Rooting

For the LG Optimus Net LG L45C, you will need to use Unlockroot from Unlockroot.com. It is currently the only way to root the phone. The Clockwork recovery method that is posted above is not for L45C, it is for P698 and P690, which can brick your phone trying to install it in a phone that may not support it.

Also, good luck with getting software updates for the phone, because Net10 WILL NOT let you upgrade the software on it. It will download the software package, but states that it is invalid and will not install it. If they would allow the phone to update itself, it wouldn't have many bugs that are showing up

Guys I tried the method mentioned above for adobe flash but the files that I place inside data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib keep getting erased everytime I restart my phone. Note that flash works perfectly as long as I dont restart my phone.

Sorry but that's how it is. Try using cm7 it doesn't seem to disappear.
