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. :(

I have USB debugging mode on the phone, and i tried running root.bat both as an administrator and a user.

I found out that i cant even connect my phone to LG Pc suite.

USB storage works well, but Suite never finds the phone. I have installed all the drivers from LG.

Whats the next step?

    thanks! so, what about the other question, is that normal that i have no permissions to the /data directory, if my phone is said to be rooted?
    No, its not. U can try it with QtADB (search on forum, its a costumized ADB for Android) and see if it works there.

    btw, you run 2.2 (rooted) on gt540 ? :) i'm a bit outdated, how is that accomplished?

    Take a look at this thread here

    bedanke mich.

    Kein Problem. :)
