    I'm a noob at this.  I've done something similar with a PSP, but never a phone.  I think I successfully rooted my phone?  Is there any way to actually check this?  I also think I installed the CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY system on the phone, but again, I'm not 100% sure how to check this.

    I thought I had done everything right up until the point where I was trying to install AreaRom Q v2.0.  I went to the recovery menu (Holding down power+home+vol down).  When I went into the menu, I could never find an option called "advanced".  So is there some kind of guide that will help me check to see what's installed and help me get what I want installed?  My ultimate goal is to put flash on my phone.   Thanks!

    Yeah, I tried it again last night.  I had been using a "self installer".  That crap didn't work.  I just did it the manual route. Thanks for the info!  :)

    Just a heads up for future reference
    Clockworkmod recovery for the Straight Talk Q(lgl55c) is official now and can be flashed using rom manager from the playstore. This would prob be the easiest way to flash recovery once rooted ;)

    As for easy rootin I've found nothin is easier than Poot Lol

    I have used poot many times sucessfully myself. But yesterday after I "pooted" my Optimus Q and downloaded Rom Mgr, I attempted to flash recovery 'The easy way' via Rom Mgr itself. Well Cwm wouldn't flash through Rom Mgr, so I tried flashing zips of both CWM and TWRP, but to no avail. I guess I am a n00b but I have flased roms and recovery's many times before. Help?
