Welcome!
This forum is for any tips, questions, answers, precautions,bugs, etc. for the LG Lucid.
It's just that simple.
I will start it of with a couple questions...

Question: How to unlock Bootloader?
Answer:

Question: How do I get the LG Lucid to boot into recovery?

Answer:
1. Hold down the power key for 2 seconds
2. You will be presented with a list of phone options, select the one called "Restart"
3. A warning message will appear with two options, select "OK"
4. After the screen blacks out (about 15 secs after step 3) you will see the LG logo.
5. As soon as you see the LG logo hold down the Volume Down key and the Power key for 12 seconds, then release.
6. You will now be presented with a blue screen that has an Android Emote in the center and some text in the top left region of the screen
7. This is the boot recovery screen.

If you LG Lucid has 4.0.4 and got the OTA update you can use the attached file and it will root it for you.

Download and extract the attached file to your PC;

In the folder "lg-lucid-root!" run "RunMe.bat" and follow the steps.

Apps you can freeze on the Lucid
With the upgrade to ICS and a built in way to disable apps, I have been able to disable quite a few of the bloatware apps on my Lucid. I am pretty sure this list is complete, but let me know if you have different results.

Amazon Kindle 3.5.1.1
Analog Clock 3.2.0
Android Live Wallpapers 1.0.3
Apps 3.06.86
Calender Widget 3.1.0
Charging Wallpaper l3.0_a.001_005
Digital Clock 3.1.5
Email Widget 3.1.18
Face Unlock 4.0.4-338691
Favorite contacts widget 3.1.4
File Manager l3.0_b.003_1517
Finance 3.8.6
Fireflies 1.0.6
Google Play Books 2.4.3
Google Play Movies 1.4.11
Google Play Music 4.1.513
Google Search 1.4.1.338691
Google+ 2.5.0.329322
HTML Viewer 4.0.4
Lets Golf 2 1.1.2 (some how this disappeared with the update to ICS)
Magic Smoke Wallpapers 1.1.0
Music Player (Widget) 3.0.14
My Verizon Mobile 10.0.332
Netflix 2.0.2
NewBayService 1.3.32
News 3.8.7
Nightscape 1.1.9
Photo Album (Widget) 3.1.4
Photo Frame (widget) 3.1.4
Plants Vs. Zombies 2.0.7
Polaris Office 3.0.3256.0
Richnote Widget 3.2.12
Rising Tide 1.0.4
Setup Wizard 1.3 (the older one for GB will not let me disable it)
ShareGenie 1.1.7
SmartShare 2.5.0
Social+ 3.1.044
Sync Service 2.5.1.5.9
Today+ widget 3.4.40
Vcast Tones 4.1.17-5 (you have to uninstall the updates from Verizon Tones first)
Video Producer 1.8.9
Voice Recorder 2.0.023
VZ Navigator 8.0.1.149
Weather 3.0.38
World Clock 3.3.5
YouTube

Some of these you may have to uninstall the updates to be able to disable the apps. I have found that the leftovers from GingerBread (like the Dialer widget, Setup Wizard, Car and Desk Home) cannot be used nor uninstalled. I am going to use Titanium Backup to uninstall them and update this post with the details.

Is your USB connection set to Ethernet/Modem? I think it might be set to mass storage, at least that is what the mounting notice leads me to believe.

Hi solidsnake. Thanks for your reply. I am the previous poster's mother and have been trying to help him root his Lucid. He has tried setting the USB connection to both Modem and Ethernet. They both yielded the same results.

Any other ideas?

I am not sure, I did not see it when I upgraded my phone. Is the usb connection set to "ask each time" or something like that?

OK I found the issue, when you run the bat file, you need to select 2 for special mode. Apparently normal mode is only for specific phones.

I don't think the device is popular enough for the regular devs to take an interest in it.
