After so many nights without sleep, i found solution for rooting new LG P500 official rom update.

DO THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK, I WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE !!!

Read instructions carefully

First of all, download archive from here and extract it to your desktop
And download driver pack from here

1. Back up all data with ASTRO file manager, you can find it on market.
2. Hard reset your phone either with system->privacy->erase all data or turning your phone off, and holding HOME,VOLUME DOWN and POWER BUTTON.
3. After phone boots up, you have clean file system, then go to Applications, and turn on USB Debugging mode

NOW THE FUNNY PART

1. Connect your phone with usb cables, make sure you have installed all the drivers needed, and connect phone in DEBUGGING Mode (provided a bit upper on this post)
2. In the extracted folder called root on your desktop, go to ADB folder and start cmd7.exe if u run win7 or cmdXP.exe (run as administrator in both options) if ur pc runs win XP. (your address bar should like something like this: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME HERE\Desktop\root\ADB
3. After starting cmd7 or cmdXP, type following commands
Code:
adb devices
then
Code:
adb shell
(symbol will change to $ or #) and copy paste following command into your terminal
Code:
echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf
4. After doing this, REBOOT YOUR PHONE
5. After reboot, go to root folder on desktop again, and start SuperOneClick.exe
6. Select GingerBreak method and press root button
7. After few seconds VOILA !!! You have rooted Optimus One.
8. REBOOT PHONE and update superuser app from market (mine was updated automatically)

To unroot device, follow steps from 1 to 6 in FUNNY PART and select unroot instead gingerbreak. and you will have unrooted device


I tried to root all kinds with android SDK and many others, and always had problems with force close. Running on this method for 3 days, and have no errors.

This is my tutorial, if u consider it helpfull, think about donating for cofee or beer.

Comments, Questions... post it below, i will read them and answer ASAP

EDIT : If you want to have beautiful CRT OFF Animation on your phone read tut here be sure to backup phonebook mine was deleted, but now i have crt off animation, which i looooove and think that is the second best thing to do after rooting :D:D:D

Try EXACTLY as written, because if you don't do like it is mentioned above, root will be wrong, and u will have app.crash on superuser. If Everything is done by my tut, your superuser app will be updated and phone rooted.

Try again, reading row by row

Hi, today i rooted my Optimus One with 2.3.3 but i have one problem - Android Market don't work (Server error, try again later (...) - something like this).
How can i fix it ?

I think that i solved it.
I replaced SuperUser.apk with new one, downloaded from hxxp://androidsu.com/superuser/ and now everything seems to work correctly ;)

Getting SU error everytime I try to do anything on Titanium Backup, even after I updated SU. Any thoughts?

EDIT: Seems that, besides updating the SU app, I also needed to update the binary through SU itself. It seems to be working fine now. Thnx!

ok, if you are newbie, rooting is not necessary, but if you already have rooted phone it is ok. Go to market on your mobile and download "Android booster" easy tool to keep your phone in performance state. you can see about it here, and it is free

    Hi
    I have Rooted my Optimus p500 with official 2.3.3 update, Installed Rom manager and also Recovery from Rom Manager (Clockwork Mod) & i have franco.Kernel.v1-16082011 installed
    I'm also using Set Cpu and have set it to 729mhz

    Now i want to know whether these are the best setting that i can have to play HD games?? (PES 2011 is still laagy)

    Do i have to Install a ROM?, If yes; Which one and how? (Which is the best gaming Rom compatible to my phone ?

    are there any baseband problems ??? (as i have the official 2.3.3 update )

    Do i have to install an other kernel ??
    stock 2.3.3. uses a new baseband.

    For performance, I suggest you use mik's 6.6.1 ROM and the latest kernel from franco. Franco has released a new stable kernel for mik's 6.6.1 ROM and stock LG ROM 2.3.3 ROM.

    To install mik's 6.6.1 ROM you need to reflash the old baseband or reinstall froyo via the KDZ update route, root the phone again and install custom ROM/kernels

    If you want to continue with new baseband try the following link

    why dont u post it on optimus one thread.....?????

    I saw that here was some posts about rooting, i will copy my post or let Mod replace it.
