Links to root/recovery guides
« on: December 10, 2012, 02:41:33 AM »
For folks coming here from non-Android forums (e.g. SlickDeals.net, where this phone's US$20 sale price has been a hot topic lately), here are some pointers:

How to root this phone (note that while the thread focuses on the LG Optimus Elite, it includes a variant of the rooting app that supports the Venture)

How to flash a custom recovery onto this phone (requires root! You'll need a custom recovery if you want to install custom ROMs)

General "All Things Root Guide" for this phone at androidforums.com (includes the above information and more)

If you don't know which custom ROM to install, go with Harmonia. It's basically the Virgin Mobile stock ROM with all the suck removed.
