Own an LG device running KitKat or Lollipop? You may want to unleash its real power by means of root access and bringing in some custom stuff on it. Android’s open nature has been explored by developers ever since it came up, and by modifying your device’s firmware you can get the best out of it. Making customisations and tweaks to your Android device requires root access, which you can gain by applying different methods and tricks. You can root your LG device powered by Android now easily with a one click root tool.
There were methods to root LG devices like LG G3, G2 running Android KitKat or Lollipop in past, but the methods were pretty complex and hard for newbies to follow, so a much easy method was required. In the early days of Android Lollipop, it wasn’t possible to gain root access on this firmware because of some core changes made by Google, so the development also comes over this hurdle and roots a number of LG smartphones running Android Lollipop.
The One-Click Root Tool developed by XDA senior member avicohh is based on a method discovered by XDA recognised developer Unjustified Dev. This tool can easily root your LG G3, LG G2, LG G Pro 2, LG G Pad and a variety of other LG smartphones running KK/LP firmware. The tool doesn’t only root a specific variant of the device, but roots almost all variants of the supported smartphones. If you’ve been looking for such an easy method to root your KitKat or Lollipop powered LG smartphone, you may have spotted the right place.
