Is anyone else having an issue rooting their LG G3 with 4.4.2 Kit Kat? I tried IOROOT and plug in the device after enabling USB debugging in developer options. There is supposed to be a menu that shows up on the phone but all I get is a "dead" Android guy. Any suggestions?

Hi there.
Don't go through so much trouble.
Go here http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...rizon-t2850906 and download the apk Stump. Follow the instructions on the thread.
Enjoy your rooted G3.

*This method will only work if your software version is pre L.

If not try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...-lite-t2821000
This is Purple Drake method. Not as easy as Stump but will get you there.

Depend of your variant. Check your variant and search for root for that one. The most of root options dont support all variants.
As you already saw at IOROOT page, there are links for root options for other variants.
Don't just download 1st one and try, or try random like @ac3ofS2 mentored. Check variant and root your device.
Trying things on that way can lead to brick your device.

p.s. if your device is not found, check do you have installed good USB drivers.
