Tablet: Security- activate unknown sources, Developer options - USB-debugging enabled
Computer: download and install USB-drivers for LG G Pad 8.3

1. Root with Tovelroot V2
2. Install SuperSu v2.00
3. Start SuperSu and Update Binaries ( normal)
SuperSu says failed to update Binaries please reboot, rebooted
after reboot Supersu works fine.
4. Install SdFix
should work without problem, if not you have a problem with root.
5. Install Flashify
Backup kernel & recovery , just in case.

I did NOT use this to flash the new recovery, but later on to enter in the new recovery

6. Download the newest version of TWRP for v500 from here
Attention !!! you have to take the one where it says:" These builds are for the 4.4.2 bootloader"
download new version !! !!
copy the to your tablet
7. Download the tool to flash recovery from here
look at step 3 , download:, to your computer and unzip it.
8. Connect the tablet (MTP) to the computer and run file:runme.bat, ! on tablet you have to allow acess from the computer and SuperSu acess for adb !
when finished disconnect usb and let the tablet reboot
9. On the tablet start Flashify , in the menu press: reboot to recovery
10.Tablet starts to the TWRP-recovery. Now go to:install and flash the new version of twrp( that you have copied to the tablet.
reboot system.

this worked for me.

Edit: For all who have the new V50020d firmware
you have to modify the runme.bat file before you run it!

Have a look over here, post 72

change the V50020b to V50020d, dont forget to save the file.

Thanks so much bro this worked perfectly, I was already rooted with ioroot25 so I just started from step 4 and everything went as planned
