Not yet, you would need to wait until we get development off the floor with at least a custom recovery.

Has anyone tried Purpledrake on a Verizon G Pad 10.1 LTE? Just picked one up and am eager to root it, but don't want to brick it right off the bat!

The non LTE version roots with Towel Root not sure about the LTE version.

I tried Towel Root but it said my device isn't compatible. I see that Purple Drake worked for the G Pad 7 LTE but I wonder if anyone tried it on the G Pad 10.1 LTE. I'd be willing to try it if I knew that trying wouldn't possibly brick my unit (like Towel Root -- if it can't do it, it tells you or just reboots).

Unfortunately I think you are one of the first with the lte version. I can't speak for purple drake I have never used it myself.

Well, I tried Purpledrake and it told me my Verizon LG G Pad 10.1 LTE isn't running a compatible software version, so it didn't work. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to hearing them!
