We were able to root my LG Esteem. However there is still some things we need to tinker with to get SU and Superuser.apk working and asking your permission instead of just granting all apps root permissions.
Check back, I will be posting another one click root for the phone, once we get everything worked out.
The OneClickRoot for LG Esteem(LG-MS91) has been posted in the forums for download
It turns out that the LG Esteem has been patched very well by LG to keep users from being able to root the device. Most known root methods have been tested on the esteem without success. So far it looks like its going to take much longer to find a working root method for this phone than most were hoping for.
The LG Esteem is Turing out to have better specs than expected. The LG Esteem for MetroPCS will have 8GB of internal storage and 512MB Ram unlike the rumored 4GB internal storage everyone thought the phoen would have.
Here are some documents to look over while we all wait to get our new LG Esteem!
Training Power Point Presentation
The LG Esteem just surfaced on the @MetroPCS website with a price tag of $349.
I just received my first check from google for the advertisements on the website and it was for $104. This will be going to the purchase of an LG Esteem once they become available.
Everyone who visits the website is contributing to me being able to get new android devices and blog about them even if you don’t know it. I just wanted to let everyone know and say thanks for visiting my android blog.
Up until now there have been rumors about the phones specs and for the most part they have all been about the same. However things like camera megapixels, 4g LTE, front camera, flash, android 2.3.4, and 4GB interall storage have been the extent of the spec details.
I now present to you some specs for the LG Esteem that will give a little more detail.

Check the site later tonight, there has been some interesting stuff going on dealing with an upcoming @MetroPCS android phone.
MetroPCS has a new 4G android phone heading their way. This time the 4G phone is made by LG and is called the LG Bryce (MS910). This phone is almost a copy of Verizons LG Revolution, with the main differance being the phone will have 4GB of internal storage where the Revolution has 16GB.
The phone has a 5 megapixel back facing camera and also has a front facing camera for video chatting. The phone is equipped with a camera flash and also should have much better battery life than the Samsung Indulge and runs android 2.3.4
The phone should be released some time this August.
I just ran across this app called Applanet and its a clone of the android market only all the apps are free.
I posted a link to the app in the Android Apps page.
The LG Optimus M android phone from MetroPCS comes loaded with tons of bloatware apps that can’t normaly be removed.
However if you have rooted your phone, you can remove these bloatware app. You will need the app named “Root Explorer”. Using root explorer nevigate to the /system/apps/ directory and click the Mount R/W button so that the app mounts the directory with read/write access. The following is a list of bloatware apps that you can safely delete.
ONLY REMOVE APPS FROM THIS LIST, removing other apps could break your phone.
MVC.MetroPCS.android02.apk = Virtual Card
MobileBanking.apk = Mobile Banking
MobilePosse.apk = MyExtras
SNS.apk = Facebook for LG, Twitter for LG
