How to Root LG G Flex 2, G2, G3 on Lollipop!

For those of you looking to root your LG G Flex 2, LG G2, LG G3, or other LG devices on Android 5.0.1/5.0.2 Lollipop, we have some good news, WE HAVE ROOT!

Thanks to XDA user Unjustified Dev and a Korean user, we can now root most LG devices on Lollipop (and probably should work also on KitKat) by using the LG firmware exploit method.

This root method works on many LG devices, here’s a list of devices it should work on:

  • LG G Flex 2
  • LG G Flex
  • LG G3
  • LG G2
  • LG F60
  • LG Tribute
  • LG MS395/D393
  • LG L90
  • LG Transpyre
  • LG Volt (LS740)

If your device is not listed, do try it and let us know and we will update this list.

Before we begin, you will need a Windows computer to root your LG device.

Step 1. Go to Settings->About Phone->Software Info then hit on the “Build number” about 5 times until it says “You are now a developer”.



Step 2. Hit back button twice and now you should see “Developer options”, select it.


Step 3. Make sure “USB Debugging” is checked ON.


Step 4. Connect a micro-USB cable from your LG phone to your computer.


Step 5. Download and unzip the files.  You should get a folder called “LG_Root” in your Downloads directory like shown below:




Step 6. Make sure you have proper drivers installed.  Go to Device Manager and find “ADB Interface”.  If you don’t see it, download LG Drivers and install it.  Then you should be able to see it.

Download drivers:

Download LG G Flex 2 Drivers for Windows (Works for most LG devices including LG G Flex 2, G2, G3, etc…etc…)

For Verizon LG devices, download the Verizon LG driver instead!!!


Step 7. Open a command prompt then type:

cd Downloads

cd LG_Root

adb devices

Then unplug and plug the micro-USB on your phone until you see “Allow USB debugging” on the phone.


Select “Always alllow from this computer” then hit “OK”.


Type “adb devices” and you should see a serial number along with “device”.  If you see this you are ready to rock!


Step 8.  Next copy and paste the following:

adb.exe push busybox /data/local/tmp/ && adb.exe push /data/local/tmp && adb.exe push /data/local/tmp

For some reason, above code gets cut off, try copying and pasting this here:

adb.exe push busybox /data/local/tmp/ && adb.exe push /data/local/tmp && adb.exe push /data/local/tmp


Step 9. Power off your LG phone and unplug the micro-USB cable.  Then WHILE HOLDING DOWN the Volume Up button, plug in the micro-USB cable.  You should see “Downloading…”.


And after few seconds it should turn to “Firmware Update”.


Step 10. Next, double-click on “ports.bat” and read the COM number next to “DIAG1”.  (Note, some users have reported you must do Right Click->Run As Administrator to get this step working although I didn’t have to.)


Step 11. Next, type:

Send_Command.exe \\.\COM24

But replace COM24 with the COM number you found in Step 10.

Then type:

sh /data/local/tmp/ dummy 1 /data/local/tmp/ /data/local/tmp/busybox


Step 12. If you have an LG phone with removable battery, simply pull battery and put it back in.  For phones without removable battery like the LG G Flex 2, hold down Volume Up and Power buttons together for 30 seconds until your phone reboots.



Step 13. Once rebooted, you should find SuperSU app in your app drawer and a fully rooted phone!

You can download and run Titanium Backup app to verify full root!


Congratulations, you’ve successfully rooted your LG G Flex 2 (or other LG smartphone) on Lollipop!

Don’t forget to root your sister’s, wife’s, brother’s, husband’s, and cousin’s LG phones!

    So does this mean I can flash the same recovery image from kikat, and or use lg g3 tweaksbox app?

  2. Biswa says:

    great root. Thanks. Worked for me.

  3. steven says:

    I have a rooted g3 on 4.4.2 can I flash this?…and does WiFi tethering work?

    • Max Lee says:

      Yes you can use this but wifi tether is additional mod you will have to do, rooting by itself doesn’t allow wifi tether.

  4. trav says:

    If my previously rooted phone upgraded to 5.0.1 can I follow these steps to make it rooted again?

  5. Eddie says:

    Followed the tutorial. Everything seemed to be working pretty well. Now I’m stuck on the at&t logo and can’t seem to get out of it. Ideas?

    • prohunterhn says:

      have you tried doing a factory restart?

      • John says:

        I was stuck at the LG logo for a bit… found that I mis typed something in the adb… When done with step 12 did you get the “inflating” everything?? If not try to re-type the commands

        • Mark Liermann says:

          I was unable to make it work on Windows XP, but it did work on Win8.1. The .bat file paths are hardcoded for the newer win folder structure.

  6. Ryan says:

    You can type “LEAVE” at step 12 in order to not pull out battery to reboot.

    This was tested on LG G3.

  7. Laura says:

    I am getting the error “failed to copy ‘’ to ‘/data/local/tm’: Permission denied”
    What can I do to fix this?

  8. Chris says:

    When I double click ‘ports’ it says the system is unable to find the specified registry key or value. Any ideas, I’m on Windows 8

  9. Lee says:

    Not work for Tmobile G2. works until step 8, on step 9 never see downloading….Tried a few times still not work at step 9

    • techoguy says:

      did you ever solve this? I’m having the same issue on my ATT phone. Holding down volume up and plugging the USB cable in just brings up the LG logo for about 10 seconds, then it goes away. That’s all

    You friggin rock fellas… donating in 3…2…1…

  11. David says:

    How do you perform step 11 on a mac?

  12. David says:

    Would this work from mac terminal:

  13. Shekhar says:


    Will this work for D855? International model which is available in India?



  14. nhan says:

    at step 10, when i click “ports.bat” no COM display. Why is it?

      I think your LG_Root is located on different Partition of C:\
      Maybe D:\LG_Root.
      You should type D: first. Then cd LG_Root

  58. Ty says:

    For Everyone stuck on step 11 to 12 what i did to fix my problem was. in the extracted LG_ROOT folder i extracted the SuperSu folder. Closed the Command Prompt window i had opened went into the extracted LG_ROOT folder Held shift and the right clicked in an open space (not clicking on any software or programs) then selected open command prompt from here then repeated step 11 and i now have root.

  59. JGD says:

    What COM settings is the Send_Command looking for to establish communications? It is unable to open the port when I attempt the command.

    • JGD says:

      Here is a screen shot of my attempt. The second attempt with Send Command is after unplugging and reattaching the USB cable.

    • JGD says:

      Finally have root! I ended up using a different computer and it worked like a champ. I have the Android SDK on my main machine and I wonder if the versions of adb on my computer and the one included with the root package were having issues working together. Thanks so much for the procedure.

  67. Cory Nelson says:

    my phone is in a constant boot loop after this process. lg g2

  68. bhavekost says:

    Thank You! Awesome walk through. For those users stuck on Step 11, through trial and error, I found the problem that I encountered and a clunky work around.

    I ran the command “sh /data………busybox” and nothing happened. No inflating, to ui_print. Nothing. So I typed LEAVE and rebooted. No SuperSU installed. Which was the case, nothing happened.

    Turns out my phone was encrypted (corp IT policy) and you can’t modify system files when encrypted. So my clunky work around was to do a backup, factory restore, then rooted the phone, re-joined my work Exchange and then the encryption happened after gaining root and finally data restore.
    Thanks again for the write-up and video!

  69. Syed Moosa Hassan says:

    OH MY GOD, it worked!!! Thanx man, really appreciate it, I was so fed up for not finding any root method for my G2 (with newly installed 5.0.1) now I have it you have me relieved of doing a manual (so difficult) root method! cheers, TC

  71. Gaby Bernstein says:

    I have Lollipop 5.0 on LG-G3.
    I ran all the steps perfectly receiving all expected screen responses both on Windows and on Android.
    When I boot after step 12 (removing/placing the battery and power up), the phone is stuck on LG splash screen for more than 15 minutes, with the led flickering with green/blue as if booting up, but does not progressing into password screen or anywhere. Any thoughts?

    • Gaby Bernstein says:

      After investigating it seems that have no choice but to re-install my ROM. That means full wipe. So chaps – if you plan to install this root, make good backups of your valuable photos, messages (SMS, WhatsApp etc.) and prepare yourself that something might go wrong and you’ll end up with a soft brick that will requires hours of setups to reinstate your original phone with a major loss of passwords and reorder of the screeens. What a waste of time!

    • Floreen says:

      Hi Gaby, I have the same problem. Can you help me?

      • Gaby Bernstein says:

        Unfortunately I had to flash my rom from scratch, but this occasion made me try Cyanogenmod 12, and it’s very good, although not completely stable just yet.

  76. stanley says:

    Works on LG g3 Verizon 4.4.2 with no problems.

  77. Tom says:

    Did you ever get past this problem?

  78. Andrew Kantor says:

    I’ve got an odd problem on my G2: USB debugging is no problem (although I have to set it on PTP instead of MTP to get the dialog box).

    Everything works through Step 9 — I’m able to run the adb commands, and I get to the Firmware Update screen.

    But then it gets odd because ports.bat doesn’t find the device even though it shows up in Device Manager! So when I try Steps 11 and 12, nothing happens.

    Any clue why ports.bat won’t find the phone? Everything else seems find, and I tried it in different USB ports on my computer. But no joy.


    • Michael Steward says:

      I have the same problem with no port showing up. Did you ever fix it?

      • Andrew Kantor says:

        Yes, but I don’t know if it will help you. It seemed to have been a setting in my PC’s BIOS that was preventing my USB ports from handling a serial connection. I turned on something like “USB legacy support” and it worked.

    • Sean S-dot Chimanikire says:

      run as administrator when you click ports.bat

    • sean says:

      ive got the same problem. I have the lg g3 d850. I also have the (!) next to the device listed in Device Manager. Interesting… I’m going to reinstall the drivers. Running ports.bat as an administrator did nothing.

    • Strype says:

      When you run ports.bat, does it tell you it can’t find the registry key??

  79. Michael Steward says:

    I can get to step 9 but I have no DIAG1 for a COM port. While trying to solve it myself, I did notice that after I plug my phone in holding volume up, my device manager shows several devices with ! on them (CDC Serial, LGE Android Phone, and MTP USB Device). I’ve installed several drivers and it appears to be working before I start with the steps.

    Running Windows 7 with 5.0.2 on LG G2. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know!

    • D_mon88 says:


      did you manage to get around this somehow? i’m running windows 10 and everything goes well up to stage 9. now i am in firmware update mode, but can’t continue. would really appreciate an answer….at least a safe way to get out of this mode would be great. many thanks if you’re able to help!

      • Strype says:

        Did you ever figure it out? When I run ports.bat, it tells me it can’t find the registry key. Is that what happened to you? Were you able to fix it?

  80. goze18 says:

    Everything was fine until i did that last command with the # and copied and pasted the command and nothing happned. I am not encrypted and on lg g2 5.0.2!!!! I rebboted and it said root access was not properly installed!!!

    Same EXACT THING happened to me just now. ;( help guys!!!

      i was stuck on that too but i did it for like 3 times until i see the step 12 i waited for like 3 minutes and the cmd doesnt move so i made the step 12 NEED TO WAIT 30 Seconds
      and the phone start showing a red light than rebooted and show “the sistem is inicializing” and then the supersu show it up :DDDDDD

  82. Ron D. says:

    Hey Max, FYI, It doesn’t seem to work on the VS980 Verizon version of the LG G2. Everything works fine up to 6:35 of the video which never runs as your video shows. This leaves the phone soft-bricked when you reboot it (it just shows the LG screen forever). I re-flashed the stock Lollipop ROM “VS98039A_05.kdz” using the LG Flash Tool 2014… 🙁 No harm, no foul! Hopefully another root exploit will be found soon for the Verizon LG G2… Thanks for the effort and the great video… 🙂

  83. Alen Đuderija says:

    at the end just tipe LEAVE and it will reboot and thanks man for info 😀

  84. Nicole Eddy says:

    IT WORKED!!!! on my LG G3 5.0.1

    the only difference i had to make was putting,


    at the beginning of everything and use windows powershell and go up in the top left and,

    click on file and click on start powershell.exe

    and also i wasnt able to use the && symbols so i seperated those commands like so..

    ./adb.exe push busybox /data/local/tmp/

    and then

    ./adb.exe push /data/local/tmp

    and then

    ./adb.exe push /data/local/tmp

    and then after i found the “com” number by opening the port file i went back to the powershell typed in the next command with


    at the beginning and DONE

    Guys let me clear this out for you , you need to be on MTP MODE no PTP because you will not see the the right “COM” and you will stack when you are going to move on at “step 11” download the correct drivers that is a **MUST**

However, when I try to use flashify to flash twrp recovery, it reboots, shows that boot certification has an error at the loading screen. The screen turns off and the led flashese red and blue. Is there a fix for this? My version of the LG G3 is D855. International.

  100. Nomic says:

    And after few seconds it should turn to “Firmware Update”.

    should something happen after this screen. looks like nothing is being updated even after 15 minutes. Continuing with the next steps does not result in an unrooted phone. LG G2

    So I did this, but now it wont boot. It just stands at the LG , lifes good logo and “flashing”? Any ideas?

  109. Bauke Brenninkmeijer says:

    Hey guys, I didn’t have a DIAG1 but did have a DIAG3,so i used the port number provided from that. Did the rest of the operations like instructed. Got no errors at all and the last command line ended in a Done statement, so i figured it had worked. It, in fact, did not and i got in a bootloop. Fixed that with LG software but just wondering if anyone knows why i didnt have a DIAG1 and why using DIAG3 wasn’t a problem.

    B.T.W. the com used with DIAG3 was the same as the LG repair software used, so i think that is not the problem. I’m ofcourse not sure since im new to this root method.

  110. Nova says:

    Got stuck on LG boot screen… any solutions? LG G3

  111. Joseph Fair says:

    Worse…I’m stuck at the splash screen, and the phone will not boot.

  112. Joseph Fair says:

    I believe that I have just bricked the AT&T LG G3 (850) with this method. I would definitely not try to do this with one.

    • EpicSenseney says:

      I have the same exact phone and i followed the steps correctly. i was on the “firmware update screen” and removed my battery. then rebooted and it booted fine and it is now rooted! Done with AT&T LG G3 D850

  113. Felipe Quiroz says:

    Same thing happened to me, doesn’t work, doesn’t do anything. Lg G2 D800 (AT&T version).

    • Aletz Pastrana says:

      a mi me paso lo mismo con el d800 despues de insertar el ultimo comando, pero lo deje asi un momento luego lo reinicie y cuando encendio ya tenia instalado el SU.

  114. Joseph Fair says:

    OK…got it back to the firmware update screen…where do I go from here?

  115. Bob Folowski says:

    Any luck with D850[20f] (Build LRX21Y), AT&T?

  116. cartmen871 says:

    i found the solution!!!

  117. Kim says:

        • Jumpax says:

          Follow a guide on how to unroot / flash STOCK LG ROM.

          You should use a guide that involves using a program called LGFlashTool or something like that. I’m a beginner to rooting and I did it with ease.

          Keep in mind this will WIPE your device. It will be like brand new.

  120. JP Missouri says:

    I Think something happened, when I downloaded the adb thing it just acted like driver software, (I tried both) so in the middle of the command prompt something didn’t work and with the allow usb debugging for computer I already did that (u have no idea how much i’ve tried, for like a year). So plz help I have a LG G2 and a crappy (Like it almost crashed) Windows Vista Premiem. HELP MEEEEE

  124. Gary Zeus says:

    I noticed if you copy and pasted the line after step 8, it appears the copy isn’t getting the entire line of what’s supposed to be pasted in the command line…. I think this was the mistake I made…

  125. robert says:

    Same thing stuck on the boot screen.

  130. Chmura says:

    Didn’t work on my LG G3 D851 from T Mobile… Stuck at t mobile screen…

  131. StArL0rd84 says:

    (LG G3 D855)
    Everything worked great, I followed everything to the smallest detail and have gotten to the boot logo, but my now my daily driver is probably bricked. 🙁
    It is stuck on the LG Boot logo and the LED is cycling through blue and green.
    I thought i would just let it sit since first boot could take longer but it is still stuck.
    Please help because this phone is important to me as it is my daily driver.

  132. Guest says:

    Yeap stuck at step 11. When You are trying to run Linux command at the Windows Command Prompt, what is TOTTALY NOT STUPID.

    • trxr says:

      If your send_command.exe connected to the com port for the phone correctly, you’re actually executing those sh commands ON the phone.

  133. Xieq says:

    Maybe You fucked up here Send_Command.exe \.COM24

  134. Jason Crowson says:

    i get through everything but at step 11 my device does nothing… whats the fix?

  135. Marsel says:

    Doesn’t work for me, did everything step by step got stuck in LG Logo loop like others have posted. In order to fix this you have to use LGflashtool and flash the stock .tot/.dll file, but change the action mode from “Upgrade DL” to “Board DL” then touch OK when screen pops up with AAT, and hit normal boot.

    • Adrian Tollis says:

      can you elaborate? im having the same issue. where would i get these .tot and ,dll files? does doing this wipe my phone?

      • Marsel says:

        Dude I’ve tried to comment how and for some reason my comment’s won’ get approved lol. e-mail me

      • Marsel says:

        You get the .tot and .dll files from his “how to unbrick your LG G3” tutorial in step 3. Go through that process but uncheck “Upgradl DL” and check “Board DL” then when your phone’s screen light’s up towards the end of the process, touch the screen even though it says not to and select “normal boot+”

  136. Sedric Tan Zhi Kai says:

    im stuck at the firmware update.
    after i reboot my phone at step 9 it shows firmware update but it just get stuck at 0% and does not increase
    LG G3 b855 here

    • Balandre Alejandro says:

      That’s normal, it’s waiting for you to send the updated information. Continue with steps 10 and 11 where you will actually send the data it’s expecting. After you sent it you will see

      ui_print – Unmounting /system and /data
      ui_print – Done !

      in the console where you inputed step’s 11 line.

      You can now remove the usb cable and restart your phone.
      I can confirm i got my D855 device rooted with this method.

  137. Stijn Roelofs says:

    Im stuck step 11. I copied the text, but when i hit enter nothing happens

  138. JT says:

    phone wont reboot. after step 11, everything was successful. i got prompt in the cmd tab saying it was done. now phone wont reboot. just sits at the LG screen after restarting. on a G2..

  139. Joshua Sanderson says:

    Tips from a noob thats been rooting since OG EVo..if you copy and paste, make sure you look at the screenshot to make sure nothing was cut off. CMD must be run with Admin, or will not copy SuperSU. Follow the directions!!I kept hitting the power and volume, which made the phone start up. Files are copied to tmp, so if the phone turns on for any reason, start over. Took me a few tries to get over my own stupid,

  140. Nikola_sss says:

    Step 9 just will not do

  141. kircata says:

    g2 d800 at step 12, need to wait for 30s, the red light show up few times then release the buttons

  168. Garret Gallant says:

    I Found A Fix that doesn’t require a factory reset after your phone screen gets stuck on the logo, basically go back to step 9, after unplugging your usb once more and while your running the cmd hold the volume up button and plug in your usb. repeat the steps from 9 to the end and once your phone starts up again be patient, it will take about a minute or so and it will say android is upgrading, then you will have superSU on your phone. Glad i can help, let me know if this helped you.

    Hello Max I have been checking out your excellent tutorials. I have spent days trying to get Lollypop on my Verizon i535 so that I can use it on Android Auto. I have tried a number of different tutorials all I have been able to do is soft brick my phone a number of times. I wonder if there is one generic set of instructions to go from a stock phone to one with CM12.1 booted up on Lollypop. What I would like to know is what type of files need to be installed and in what order. I can then search the procedures to install.

  189. Mitch says:

    Hi. I am getting an error at step 11 that says: System_Command.exe – System Error “The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”

  198. Jon Griffin says:

    Keep having the same issue over and over again.. I have the AT&T LG G3 (850) running on Lollipop 5.0.1 and I follow all the steps to a T. After step 11, all I see is:
    ui_print *******************
    ui_print SuperSU installer
    ui_print *******************
    ui_print – Mounting /system, /data and rootfs
    ui_print – Extracting files
    ui_print – Disabling OTA survival
    ui_print – Removing old files
    ui_print – Placing files
    ui_print – Post-installation script
    ui_print – Unmounting /system and /data
    ui_print – Done !

    There is no inflating process as shown in the picture and my phone does not install SuperSU and does not get rooted.. I’m running the command prompt as Administrator and my phone is not encrypted… ANY SUGGESTIONS??

    My G2 from Verizon is only recognized as an adp device if it is in (PTP) mode. Everything works fine until I manually put my phone into downloading mode. Once it is on the “firmware update” screen, my computer no longer recognizes the device as an adb device. I can’t use the “ports.bat” function, and I can’t continue the process.

    I have a Sprint LG G3, model LS990ZVA, running Android 5.0.1. Did everything exactly according to the instructions above.

I installed Root Checker and it’s showing that the phone isn’t rooted, root-required apps don’t work either. I’m at a loss, I’ve tried every rooting method I can find to no avail. I don’t want to wipe my phone, but I’m tempted to wipe it and downgrade so I can use stumproot.

Is it supposed to take a while to even make it to 1%? the program you also have listed as an option is unable to find the port after reboot at 75% Then in step 9 i never see downloading all i see is download mode and then it goes to the firmware update screen where it never makes progress.

  242. Godfrey Madibane says:

    Hi. I am using LG G3. I don’t quite fully understand the basic reasons for rooting but it looks cool. My one reason to do it is because I want to use Android 5.1.1 on my G3 which is currently running on 5.0. can I do that ?

  243. Khizar Arshi says:

    Titanium Backup tells it has no root access…. shows some error.
    SuperSu asks for some binary crap… what to do? I’m using Tmobile G3 with lollipop 5.0.1
    I followed all the steps to success, but still without root access….. please help

  246. awef says:

    This is a bad guide, not for newbies. You skip over steps you may think are trivial but will confuse new comers to rooting. Please make this guide more considerate to a wider audience.

  247. Vader Van Vlichtenstein says:

    sooooo. will this work with sprints 5.0.1 update? ive done this 3 times got trough it all the way but it wont root. just wondering if what one of the other users said about missing installation files compared to your command lines after the # sh command

  248. Siddharth Tandon says:

    After typing cd Downloads it says system cannot find the path specified

  251. Robert Garcia says:

    My PC wont run “Send_Command.exe \. COM3” because it claims that “MSVCR100.dll” is missing. I’ve searched through System32 to find it and I’ve found two copies so I know it’s there. The question is, how to get the command to run?

  255. Landon The Noob says:

    This is the 4th method I’ve tried (VS985), all with the same result. Once I get to the last step, I get a simple FAIL message. Is this because I am running 5.1.1? Is there a method that will allow for 5.1.1 or do I hae to downgrade my software first? I’ve rooted successfully twice before, idk why it’s not working this time. (I like to mess with my phone a lot lol)

    • Ian Engel says:

      This is the same problem I’m having now. Is it because we’re running 5.1.1? I don’t know where the path is either to find out what file the command is referencing either…

  256. Steve Mills says:

    I’m following your steps, but when I disconnect USB cable my LGG3 and then plug it back in, computer does not recognize it because USB Tethering turns off and has to be manually switched back on, which I cannot do when the Firmware Update screen is on. The Firmware Update screen appears but does not update. I pulled the battery and turned on and all is good, but can’t get beyond this step. Any suggestions?

  257. Oaf says:

    Didn’t work. 0/10 – would not recommend.

  258. rr says:

    this is such a long-drawn method – just search for the 2-minute root process

  259. Denis Ungl says:

    nice, this worked. But for lg g flex 2 you have to hold volume down+power button to reboot your phone.

  260. Luca Staiano says:

    Hi, my phone (LG G Flex 2) stays on Firmware Update stays on Firmware Update at 0%, it seems it won’t reboot.
    Any help?

  268. Jonnyarlathotep K'haos says:

    Well i guess i should have read the comments section as i like everyone else here got “success” but then no root

  269. Ran Samo says:

    The method works for LG Leon H320 LTE. However, must add two precisations: first, your device must be in PTP mode (not MTP or only charge, they won’t work); second, the dowload link on this site is down.
    Beware: the installation may require a lot of time

  270. okorie nnamdi says:

    Can it work on LG G flex 2 that has android 5.1.1?

  273. Kestrelhen says:

    When I try to run the Send_Command.exe \.COM24 , it just says error, (replaced com24 with com3)

  274. Kestrelhen says:

    If you’re having problems, try extracting all files into a new folder which you will afterwards name LG_Root and also extract supersu and place it in there as well. After that, try SHIFT + Right Click and then open command prompt here. It worked for me with the lg g flex 2 but it won’t show me the supersu app, trying to see if I have root right now.

  275. Strype says:

    When I run ports.bat, it says “Unable to find the specified registry key or value.” – I have been trying for 3 days to get this darn phone rooted, and no matter what, I always slam head first into some kind of major issue. I’m starting to think this phone is unrootable. 🙁 Anybody have any suggestions?

  277. Warren Barnharrt says:

    I have an LG LS990 ZVC (Sprint). running android 5.0.1. After many attempts using one click routines and now this site. I have come to the conclusion that something in one the three files pushed in the first step cause the LS990 to block communication. After disconnecting the phone, pull battery and attempt to go into download the phone does not respond. I think the phone is headed for e-bay as a sprint phone.

  278. Ruben says:

    Did not work on Sprint LGG3, Never inflated files. Anyone else with same issue?

    LG LS990 Android 5.0.1, Security patch level 11/01/2016, Kernel Version 3.4.0, build LRX21Y, SOFTWARE V. LS990ZVG, SECURITY SOFTWARE V MDF v1.1 Release3

  279. Nik says:

    I’m Running 5.0 on D855. The process goes smoothly all the way. However it simply isn’t rooted after reboot. No SuperSu, and Root checker says “Your device isn’t properly rooted”. Anyone has an idea what is going on?
