    I had to run the superoneclick a couple of times. Reading the linked info I connected/disconnected/connected the phone from the computer a few times. i knew I was good to go once I could use use adb's devices command and see the phone was present at a command prompt.

    Now I'm stuck because the drivers aren't on the laptop where i shipped the phone back too and pdanet can't locate the phone. doh

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Ok..for this laptop (which I'm at the location of the phone and laptop tonight) the lg driver wouldn't work for Verizon phones. The pdanet driver also wouldn't install.

    Drivers & Resources - LG Forum has a list of drivers. Looking around the web led me to try the Virgin Mobile G Ally usb modem driver. This made a bunch of little windows pop up "cartoon bubbles" show up on the task bar down near the clock. When it was down I tried ADB DEVICES again and the phone was seen. This would let others proceed to root it with superoneclick, For me it let me run pdanet one more time and this time it installed and I'm tethered through the phone as I type this on the laptop.
    Good luck and hope this additional info helps.

    I know this a quasi-old thread but I just rooted my ally last night with super one click 1.7. It worked the very first try whereas 1.5 kept looping on me. Just thought id let people know that want to root their phones.

    I've been reading over this forum for the last few months, and thought id finally drop in and say hello. :-)
