A few years ago you might be interested in LG Android smartphones, although not buy it as you see that there’s no active development for LG devices, then finally pick other devices from various other manufacturer that has an active development such as Samsung or HTC. At that time, just to get root access was also very difficult, since only some developers who desire to support it.
But since the release of the LG G2 which is the new LG flagship phone and its availability with four major U.S. carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile), the LG’s Android development becomes alive. For the LG G2 owner, you might familiar with ioroot, it’s a one-click root exploit that works for almost all G2 variants. The exploit was first developed by thecubed – a dev from xda, but was eventually handed down to autoprime – another recognized developer from xda.
When handled by autoprime, ioroot exploits getting better from day to day, even currently ioroot also supports various other devices like the new LG G Flex that will be available in the U.S. starting Q1 this year through AT&T, Sprint, and TMobile. Not just that, it’s also support an older devices like the LG Optimus G.
When your device gets an OTA update, it will not take long for him to release a working exploit to root our devices. We should thank to him, because without his exploits, we must be willing to live without superuser privileges.
The ioroot can easily run on various Operating System (Windows, Mac OS and Linux), so we no longer need our neighbor’s PC just to run it, you can get it here. The ioroot doesn’t have a GUI or Graphical User Interface, just a command line, on a Windows OS it’s only a batch (.bat) file, to run it we should just double-click on it.
