LG Revolution Software Breakdown

Before you root

You will need to have [ADB] access. You will also need to understand this phone has no stable recovery, but here you can download a beta build.

You will need to download this file (rageagainstthecage binary) and this file(SU binary). Then place them in your platform-tools folder of the Android SDK.

How to root the LG Revolution (with Linux)

In terminal type:

adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage

Then type:

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage

Now you are ready for shell, and time to root:

adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage

After it roots it, time to push the SU binary:

exit adb push su /system/bin adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/su

Thats it! Now head to the market and download SuperUser!

Or >cd (whatever directory adb is in)

>adb devices (verifies you are connected)

>adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/temp/rage (Copies rage binary to phone)

(if the above command fails due to read-only, type 'adb usb' then 'adb root' to validate root status)

>adb push su /data/local/temp/su (copies SU Binary to phone)

>adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/temp/rage (sets permissions on rage binary)

>adb shell ./data/local/temp/rage (runs rage binary)

>adb shell (if after going into the shell you have a $ instead of a #, type 'su')

#mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system (Mounts system)

#busybox cp /data/local/temp/su /system/bin/su (Copies SU to system)

#chmod 6755 /system/bin/su (sets permissions on SU)

Verify the file is in place w/correct permissions

#cd /system/bin

#ls -l *su (Displays the below text, permissions, name, access, filesize, date/time, filename, first 4 should match)

-rwsr-sr-x root root 26248 2011-05-29 01:09 su
