Thanks to Open Source developers, we have full root method for the LG G3!
There’s currently many root methods for the LG G3, this is one of those methods.
Now, this is the ONLY root method for those of you who T-Mobile LG G3 but also works for many others.
UPDATE: These root instructions are for KitKat ONLY! If you have Lollipop, you can follow the guide here on How to Root LG G Flex 2, G2, and G3!
Today, we will be using PurpleDrake root method to root the LG G3. There’s two ways to use PurpleDrake, you can either grab the scripts on XDA OR you can also do it manually.
Since at the time of this post they don’t have a script for Windows yet, I will be showing you how to do it manually using PurpleDrake asset files.
Please don’t forget to donate to the developers of this root method! You can donate here.
This root method should take you around 15 minutes at most so let’s do this!
Step 1. Go to Settings->General->About Phone->Software information.
Check your Android version, this root method will work on Android 4.4.2.
