    I just got my phone a couple days ago so now its time to root. I just got a software update and then I tried to root my spectrum and I cant get my computer to reconize my phone. i downloaded the all in one root package and installed the drivers that were on it and still no luck. has anyone rooted their phone after the software update, or am I just doing something wrong. I did noticed that when I am plugged in to my computer and in internet mode and I went to check to make sure usb debugging was checked it was grayed out and it wouldnt let me click on it. If I go to charge only it it accessible and checked. When I run Root&recovery it says

    Rooting
    Press any key to continue . . .
    *daemon not running. starting it now*
    *daemon started successufully*
    _


    and it just sits there and doesnt do anything after that. Any ideas of what I am doing wrong?

    I did it took and I had trouble initially. Make sure you have USB debugging set and try different connection modes under settings "default connection modes". I"m not sure which one finally worked.

    LG-VS920 Hardware rev 1.2

    Verizon must have tweaked something in the VS920ZV6 version, because once I plug my phone in, USB debug mode becomes disabled (and grayed out). See below images. I'm assuming that's why adb.osx doesn't connect and just sits there indefinitely:
    Code:
    lappy:spectrum_root_linux_osx jtalbot$ sudo ./adb.osx wait-for-device
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    My phone's software:

    Debug mode is enabled and not grayed out when not tethered:
    LG spectrum rooted-2012-08-04-13.43.27.png

    Debug mode is disabled and grayed out upon tethering:
    LG spectrum rooted-2012-08-04-13.43.45.png

    This is some dirty, dirty, filthy, dirty tactics, if this is Verizon's doing, which wouldn't surprise me one.damn.bit.

    Is there some kind of magic sauce workaround?

    What is your Connection Mode set to? It should be Internet connection, Ethernet.

    I have tried it in all three available "Charge only," "Mass storage," and "Internet connection." Any other ideas? BTW - Thanks!

    good. Were you able to establish root. I lost it with the update and have not tried to reestablish it. I thought I would wait for the ICS update to come out.

    I've not tried it yet. But I was able to stay in USB debug mode, so I anticipate no issues. I'll update either later tonight, once I'm home, or first thing tomorrow.

    Again, thanks.

    Do you know if having it rooted devices will still be allowed to update to ICS? If not, I may hold off until ICS update... which is... ???

    I don't know, I hope we can still get root. Although I've not missed it much except for the LG Notifications app (flashes button lights for notifications, I do miss having a notification LED on this thing).
    The update should be soon, from what I gather it is in Verizon's hands now. Of course with Verizon that could be months.
