How to Root LG Optimus S with Version LS670ZVD Steps: LG Android Phones

1. Fire up a terminal (cmd.exe on Windows)

2. Change to the directory where you extracted the files from

  • cd C:\wherever\you\put\the\files

3. Prepare the /data/local/tmp directory with write permissions (THIS IS REQUIRED!)

  • adb shell
  • rm -r /data/local/tmp
  • mkdir /data/local/tmp
  • exit

4. Push the required files to the /data/local/tmp directory

  • adb push gingerbreak /data/local/tmp/gingerbreak
  • adb push su /data/local/tmp/su
  • adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox
  • adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk

5. Fire up the shell

  • adb shell

6. Change to the /data/local/tmp directory

  • cd /data/local/tmp

7. Set correct permissions. REQUIRED: If you don’t do this you will be slapped.

  • chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/*

8. Run gingerbreak (this can take a while, so please be patient. If it gets stuck for more than a few minutes, reboot your LG Optimus S and try again from step 1. This will automatically give you a root shell if successful.)

  • ./gingerbreak

If that doesn’t work, you can try

  • /data/local/tmp/gingerbreak

9. Mount the /system partition read-write

  • mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /system /system

10. Change to the /data/local/tmp directory

  • cd /data/local/tmp

11. Copy su and busybox to /system/bin

  • cat su > /system/bin/su
  • cat busybox > /system/bin/busybox
  • cat Superuser.apk > /data/app/Superuser.apk

12. Set correct permissions on su and busybox

  • chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
  • chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox

13. Exit the shell

  • exit
  • exit

14. You’re done! You may now reboot and have fun with your rooted LG Optimus S!

If you followed all of the instructions correctly, Superuser has already been installed.

If you screw up on any of these instructions, you will have to reboot your phone and try again starting from step 1. LG Phone Problem and Solution
