The Verizon LG G4 Rooted, finally!
The geniuses at XDA-Developers.com have outdone themselves once again, they have found a way to get the Verizon LG G4 Rooted , as well T-Mobile, Spring and AT&T. I emphasize the Verizon variant as it is usually the last one to get root and updates from the community, so I am double impressed. Also a few other carriers were able to get root before. Yesterday they posted to XDA that they found an easy way to get the Verizon LG G4 Rooted, but if done wrong, even one step missed…you would have a paper weight. But if you are a risk taker, and can follow pretty straight forward instructions then you will have a Verizon LG G4 root
What is this?
Low Effort Root is a root for your LG G4, named such because this is a root we really weren’t too interested in releasing, but the phone is gaining critical mass so we figured waiting any longer would be a disservice to the community.
(We also don’t like that the root ends up being ~4GB, since we’re flashing whole new system partitions.)
We had originally planned on releasing an in-android root app, however time constraints on all the team members has prevented us from devoting the necessary time to it.
This root will root any LG G4, provided we have a pre-rooted system image for it. This is akin to ‘flashing a rooted odin’ image on a Samsung phone, as we’re simply writing a system partition that contains Superuser.
No exploits here, no trickery, just a plain and simple flash and be on your merry way.
Thank you XDA, we all love you for this.
