    Is this the name of the drivers for my phone? These are the only ones I can find "LG VZW_United_WHQL_v2.3.1.msi"

    Okay, so...here is my new dilemma. I don't have CWM on my phone, I found a video that told me how to boot to it, but didn't know the phone needed to be rooted first to even get CWM. I followed the video instructions here ... and it wiped my phone. Now I don't know what to do after that. So my phone is back to stock, I'm assuming. Should I go from here...to do the root and everything else you said? I'm so semi-technically challenged...as long as I have step by step instructions, I can do pretty much anything once then do it all almost by memory from there.

    PS ~ there are files in his Root that are winzip files. I don't have winzip and I'm too cheap to pay 30 bucks for it. I can't unzip them for whatever reason and can't find the .dat file. I'm looking in the ZV7 to ZV8 folder and these are the files I see:

    Data folder
    META-INF folder
    system folder
    boot winzip file
    installbusybox file
    recovery winzip file

    I'm confused and don't understand what to do next. Will wait for your response, sorry for all the mesages. Just really confused and discouraged cause my phone is wiped.

    Grab http://www.7-zip.org/, free open-source file compression/extraction ... I use Windows XP/Vista/7's compressed files handler to open .zip files in most cases but 7zip works well for that & other types of compressed data. I've used WinRAR & WinZip in the past, but alas I too am too cheap to pay for license beyond trialware period. I like freeware when it works well :)K

    Decompressed Transmission from R2D2

    It only copies the files I need to extract. It won't extract them at all. Keeps saying "Cannot open file C:/...../...../...." Am I doing something wrong?

This specific deal didn't work but I found out how to at least get my ZV8 on my Revo, so I don't have to worry about that dar-gone OTA trying to push anymore. Now to just work on getting the root back on it. Thank you so much darling.

    Sorry I usually stick to XDA and don't check this site often. I apologize. I am learning as I go and it seems like if you don't do each step precisely then you might eff **** up. If you need anymore help please feel free to contact me via facebook. Alan Boone | Facebook
    My fb account is tied to my phone and my phone number is listed in my info. Feel free to shoot me a friend request and text me.

    p.s. it's not because you're a smokin hot vegas chick ;) just trying to pay it forward because i got a lot of help trying to root my phone.
