Here is a very simple instruction on rooting LG GT540 when Universal Androot doesn't work:

1. Download and extract the attached package.
2. Connect the phone in "USB Debbuging Mode"
3. Doubleclick "root.bat" (extracted from the package)
4. Wait for the console to shut down and the phone to reboot.

The credit for this method goes probably to people from Modaco.

Since this is my first post and i am still not allowed to post links from external servers i won't give any mirrors for unregistered users. Sorry.

Thumbs up
I rooted my phone yesterday using that method.

I ran each line of code separately though as i had issues running the .bat file

You can give it a try. But first look at the name of this forum section. It is for GT540.
