Easy One click root script to root LG G3, G Flex 2, G2 running Lollipop and KitKat

Earlier, we posted a guide about new 2015 LG root toolkit that can provide superuser privileges to some LG Android smartphones running Lollipop or Kitkat, the guide based on Unjustified_Dev’s thread on xda. Although the procedure is not too difficult, but for some folks it could be a difficult procedure, maybe because there’s too many technical commands and steps that need to be done.

 

If you have difficulty applying these methods, there is good news for you. A senior member of xda – avicohh, have managed to simplify the long method and turn it into one-click script. Previously, we had to accomplish 10 steps, but with this one-click script we only need to execute two steps only and without typing adb command manually.

This one-click script has been tested and reportedly working on several LG smartphones including LG G3 (all variants), LG Tribute and LG F60. However, if your phone is not listed, most likely it’s still supported. Here are the prerequisites and the overview on how to get it done:

Requirements
  • A computer with Windows OS.
  • The latest version of LG USB Drivers for Windows.
  • Enable USB debugging on the phone.
  • Connect the phone to the PC via micro USB cable, and use MTP or PTP connection.
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package x86/32bit or x64/64bit, in some case you need 32bit package although your computer is 64bit.
  • Get the one-click root utility from sourceforge.net or directly head to avicohh’s thread here, available in two format, batch script and GUI.

 

Instructions
  1. Extract the one-click root utility (GUI or script) by double-click on it.
  2. When you choose GUI tool, just install then run it like common Windows apps.
  3. If you pick the script tool, you’ll see a new folder called “LG Root Script”, open it and double-click the “LG Root Script.bat” then follow the given instructions.

    Hey you guys I am stuck in 75% after rebooting!

    Rebooting…
    Looking for LG serial port…
    Serial port not found! please insert the phone manually into Download mode.
    Disconnect the USB cable and turn off the phone.
    Then press and hold the Volume Up button, and while you’re doing that connect the USB cable again.
    Waiting for device…

    For some reason got passed that, install the lates drivers while in download mode and “bang” 100% root acces! kinda tricky but I can judge many things, from windows to even the cable that I am using!

    For any one having trouble rooting don’t get frustrated this is all about patience and look around to see whats wrong!

    Gotta thanks this guys! not even a day with Lollipop and I am using my lovely G2 at Full!!

    Thank you!!

        Try to pull out USB from the phone, pull out battery, turn the device on and then grant root access.
        SuperSU should instaled although it’s not finished till 100%.

          “Try to pull out USB from the phone, pull out battery, turn the device on and then grant root access.
          SuperSU should installed although it’s not finished till 100%.”

          When I pull the USB cable the script continues like if it had rooted the phone… but nothing happened.

          Also, you advice pulling out the battery and turning the phone on without battery? powering through USB or putting the battery back again? how to “grant root access”?
          Can you advice step by step the procedure?
          Thanks

        I got past the serial port issue when manual download, but I am stuck at 90% of the process (since yesterday) at the point where it is supposed to actually root the phone… any ideas?

        what drivers?

    • Artos
      September 19, 2015 at 6:17 AMReply

      The issue seems to be that sometimes when you install the drivers initially the serial port drivers are not installed, so when you get to the manual download mode the computer cannot recognize the new serial port because it is not installed. If this happens then you can install the drivers again once you get to that point…

    root verizon vs985 23c. I tried many times the one click root and the script root for this phone. Nothing worked. One manual root got my phone soft bricked at the Verizon logo. If that happens use the LG update tool to restore it in recovery mode. The only root method that worked for me is a manual method at this link http://www.reddit.com/r/LGG3/comments/2ydptk/workinghow_to_lollipop_root/ . If your having trouble with your LG G3 Verizon …this worked for me!

      Worked for my Sprint LG G3 LS990 on ZV8. But I can’t figure out why I can’t install a custom recovery like TWRP, after I flash TWRP, it reboots to a black screen with flashing red/blue LED.

      But I do have root. Just no custom recovery.

    Thanks a lot! I go all the way thru and it asks for registration and then credit card number and charge $29.99. Don’t pay for this. Nobody mentioned a fee.
