    Where’s my post?
    Did it erase it?
    Is there a delay?
    I hate these stupid capcha stumbling blocks that force to copy my comments to clipboard before posting.
    Then after 3 tries with illegible letters, it just completely deletes my question.
    Awesome. Good web design. Loving it.

      yes there is a delay in replying comments as we ensure that none of the comments are missed!
      due to heavy load of comments there is a bit delay!

    Is this root process reversible?
    I’m thinking about doing this for my girlfriends Virgin Mobile phone. I successfully rooted my htc Thunderbolt several months ago, and haven’t missed the hassles of bloatware at all.
    However, I didn’t have to go into the adb shell and remount the system partition as writable. (I use Linux at home, so I pretty much know what’s going on with the shell commands)
    However, once I make that writable and flash in the recovery loader, is there any way to return it to stock completely.
    On my thunderbolt, I used the Revolution method to gain root, and achieve S-OFF status. I can easily restore the stock ROM from NAND backup, and reverse the process to return the phone to S-ON mode, if I need to return the phone to Verizon for any reason.

    Is there a way to de-root this phone, in case my girlfriend has to return it? Or is it permanently rooted after this process?

    Hoooweee, ho yeah!, my Lg Optimus V finally rooted :-), thanks for this awesome tutorial, it works.
    The only step that I have to skip is :

    mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

    install-recovery.sh.bak does no exist in Stock and optimized.zip

    but it works anyway :-), thanks
