    Big thanks to Hilong08 for these instructions:

    Here are the instructions that got me successfully back to STOCK ROM that is still rootable.

    YOU ARE RUNNING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO YOUR DEVICE!

    Instructions:
    1. Get the LGNPST Package with the GenericModels and Components Plug-In.

    2. Get the driver for the phone and install it.
    http://www.lg.com/us/support/mc-supp...er_1.0_All.exe

    3. Get the Stock Rom TOT file and extract it.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1120062

    4. Get the DLL file specifically for the Revolution
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=14850289&postcount=19

    5. Extract the "LGNPST Store & Lab"

    6. Install the following order:
    a. LGNPSTv1.2_Store_Version.msi
    b. LGNPST_v1.2_Lab_Version.msi
    c. Components >> LGNPST_Components_Ver_5_0_12_0.msi
    d. GenericModels >> LGNPST_GenericModels_Ver_5_0_10_0.msi

    7. Run "Right_Click_Register_DLL.reg"

    8. Make a new folder called "Models" in the program's directory
    Default: "C:\LG Electronics\LGNPST\"

    9. Grab the "VS910.dll" and put it in the "Models" folder.

    10. Right Click "VS910.dll" and click on Install.
    Note: DLL WILL NOT INSTALL UNLESS COMPONENTS AND GENERICMODELS PLUG-INS ARE INSTALLED!!!

    a. Make sure you install it properly
    b. REBOOT!!

    11. Run "LGNPST"

    12. Plug in your phone, use Internet Connection Mode,and enable USB Debugging.

    13. Phone should pop up in the list

    14. Select the phone and click on the Open folder button inside the .BIN query underneath the COM## details.

    15. Since it wants a .bin file, you can open the .TOT file by typing "*.*" inside the File Name query and hitting Enter

    16. Select "VS910ZV4_04.S4_04.P58008.R5.user.tot" and Click OK

    17. Then click on Upgrade

    18. Wait a few minutes

    19. Voila

    EDIT: To all users running 64bit versions of Windows, you guys may run into problems since I only tested this method under a 32bit environment of Windows 7. I will attempt to get my hands on a 64bit version of Windows 7 to test some more and make a instructional Youtube video to help out everyone soon.

    *Updated Super1Click Root Instructions*

    Make sure 4G is on during this process!!! Even if 4G is not in your area or you get no signal, make sure it is on anyway!

    First, go this post [APP]SuperOneClick v2.1.1 (Finally fixed!) - xda-developers and download Super1Click v1.7.

    Next, go to here: LG Forum and download the LG Revolution drivers and install them.

    Next, turn on USB Debugging on your Revo. Plug your Revo into your PC. Bring down the Notification Pulldown and select "Internet Connection."

    Next, launch Super1Click v1.7. On the main screen for Super1Click, make sure the rageagainstthecage exploit is selected.

    Next, click "Root" and wait for the process to complete.

    Next, after the process completes, exit out of Super1Click, bring down the notification pulldown and switch connection to "charge only" and wait for it to switch.

    Next, unplug the USB cable and reboot.

    You should now be rooted on the v4 firmware. Make sure that superuser is installed, alternatively, you can go into the market and download Terminal Emulator. Open Terminal Emulator and type "su" without the quotes. If you get a "#" sign then you are rooted.

    If that method does not work for you, then you can try manually through ADB from the post found here: Root instructions... - xda-developers


    I will try to answer as many questions as I can but keep in mind, I DID NOT CREATE ANY OF THESE METHODS AND THEREFORE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS. Hope this helps some of you!

    Thanks so much for this! Were you able to confirm if this works on 64bit Windows 7?

    Unfortunately it's only been confirmed on Windows 7 32bit. Should still work on a 64bit though.

    I was able to successfully back-rev my Revolution to the stock v.4 firmware. Then root the phone on windows 7 64bit OS.
