Here's my information:

This thread should help, I had to downgrade to ZVH using stock recovery, then use the optiauto CLI tool to root and install Xionia CWMA recovery. Root, radio and gingerbread works, but radio flashed with a Froyo downgrade is not legacy compatible with ZVJ. It's worth noting that while CM7.2 or 9 can be flashed from Xionia, you shouldn't do this before having all necessary files/drivers from the froyo, gingerbread and cm9 images, and CM9 flashed LS670s cannot be activated on Sprint.
Devices:
-ASUS tf201 Transformer Prime rooted TWRP
-Samsung SGH-t679 Galaxy W Tmo Exhibit 4G rooted
-Samsung P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 rooted CWM
-Samsung SGH-T839 Sidekick 4g rooted
-HTC Sapphire/Magic 32b (Tmo USA, MyTouch 3G) (x3): Froyo OTA updated, rooted, CWM, various shaky legacy roots
-Treo 680 (x2): ROM Cracked, phat dbcache, Websphere JVM
-Treo 650: Still alive.

Did you ever get this rooted, I was just given my brother in law's phone and phone number and I was going to use the phone as a media player but wanted to root to remove sprint crap or put a custom rom on.

I've been working, to create a custom rom, so far so good, I'm basing it off of IHO rom for it.

I cannot go into too much detail since I spent hours on it and forgot and renamed a lot of stuff.

Hey, so I just got an LS670 (LG Optimus S) from a friend to replace my current phone. Not sure how it will go since I have an old SERO account.
Anyways, I had some time off and would recommend to you update flashing your baseband to ZVH. Turn on usb debugging from the applications/development from settings and use stay awake option.Use Sons Of Korhal 1.0.1 to root it. Update to ZVJ using its appropriate update.zip. Then use OptiAuto (aka OptiAuto-sfx) if its the new enough version will allow you to root the zvj baseband. Some of these files are hard to find, took me 3 hours total in trial and error.

This page helped a lot: forums.androidcentral.com/lg-optimus-s-rooting-roms-hacks/119130-how-manual-rooting-ls670zvh-zvj-links-root-zvd-zv9.html

and this one: forums.androidcentral.com/lg-optimus-s-rooting-roms-hacks/131297-how-rooting-ls670zvd-zvh-100-automated-zvj-automated.html

optiauto for windows might be this one, you'll need it: mediafire.com/download/dsblck8764079q0/optiauto-sfx.exe
