    Cannot root after V8

    My wifes Revo was rooted and received the recent V8 update. This update lost root.
    None of the rooting apps and procedures are able to reroot the Revo.
    Can't find much info about this. Am I alone in this?

    Sent from my Bionic.

    Hi. I consider myself fairly well versed (or so I thought) in rooting phones but I cannot seem to root my wife's Revolution V8. I've tried both Super One Click and the LG Revolution All in One to no avail. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    You guys figure this out yet? Check out these threads. Should resolve ALL of your problems.

    To root you must first get CWM on your phone first. Use the steps in this link:
    ***Easiest Method for Keeping Root Thru the ZV8 Update*** - xda-developers


    This link will install a stable rom with no bloatware. Currently the dev is working on the kernel source so we can overclock, undervolt etc.
    [Rom][4-2-12][ZV8]Broken Out Revo 1.1 - xda-developers


    Let me know if this works for you! I was having the same problems you guys had. The dev MTMichaelson on XDA is a friggin genius and made it really easy for revolution users. Good luck!

    This method does work, but it requires you to downgrade. furthermore the files used in this method are only for a pc. i am just waiting for v8 to be rootable

    I forgot to mention that yes you have to downgrade, but once you downgrade and root, you can update to zv8 and keep root. Also, if you just want to run stock software with no bloat, use this link (still requires root):

    I can't even get my REVO to update. Many people have had to get a new phone with V8 preinstalled. Anyone else know about this?

    What are the symptoms? Have you tried any of MT's All-In-One root and update files on XDA?

    Symptoms: OTA tried to push....had root so unrooted ... tried to push again...failed. Keeps failing...has been failing fir over 2weeks now. It is causing a lot of issues with my phone now. Burning memory, restarting 7-10 times a day, freezing etc. Haven't put the root back on yet either. Don't know what MTs is...nor XDA. Explain please.
