How To Root At&t and Verizon LG V10

When it comes to making a unique smartphone, LG is the name that can’t be put under the hood. Just last year, we saw LG’s flagship device the LG V10 which definitely was one of its-own-kind smartphone. LG V10’s might specifications and cool design inside a premium build helped it to stand apart from the crowd. LG used a 5.7-inch QHD display with 515 ppi accompanied by a 5 MP duo camera setup on the front. At the back we saw a 16 MP shooter. LG made the use of Snapdragon 808 CPU to power this device up and backed this up by an Adreno 418 GPU. A RAM of 4 GB is plugged inside. LG V10 ran on Android Lollipop out of the box, the device is in the queue to get Android Marshmallow.

LG V10 is a pure beast in its original form, but you can further enhance its performance by breaking all the rules which means you can do this by gaining root access on your device. Usually, the rooting methods do not take long to come up for international variants of the device, but when it comes to carrier branded devices, rooting seems something close to impossible.

    Thku!
    This is the first place where the zip to 990 is online.

    Is there a TOT file for the H900 using Marshmallow (6.0)? I’ve been searching desperately for it. I’m in Canada, and all the AT&T bloatware is useless to me.

  • McBob1

    Is there a TOT file available for Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

    Please and thank-you.

    Thanks to Tungkick for releasing this root exploit, but unfortunately it doesn’t work on h900’s running Marshmallow. Is there a TOT file available/in the works for rooting AT&T LG v10 H900’s?

    Please and thank-you.
