Easy as 1-2-3!

1 Run ioroot.bat,, ioroot.tool or open command prompt/terminal, cd into /ioroot/bts/ and type;
adb reboot recovery

If you DO NOT have this menu in stock recovery IOroot will not work for you!

2 Select "Apply update from ADB" w/power button. Sideload mode is now enabled.

3 Hit a button to continue the ioroot script or manually sideload;
adb sideload


Extended info and FAQ below...

Windows Drivers:

Open terminal and cd into /ioroot/ folder
chmod +x

double-click on ioroot.tool* in ioroot folder.

** may need to chmod +x the file first.

Q: Will this jailbreak other LG devices?
A: It will jailbreak any LG device which can be booted into stock recovery with menu. Confirmed devices are found in the device list in this thread.

Q: Why do I see an android with a red x or just reboot when I try to get into recovery?
A: Your device has a lame recovery and may have issues jailbreaking w/current IOroot 4.4.2.

Q: Will this root non-LG devices?
A: Probably not.

Q: The script doesn't work for me, can you help?
A: No, use terminal to manually enter the commands or ask for help in the thread.

Q: I can't get 'adb devices' to see me phone, can you help?
A: learn2android

Q: Know any hip places to hang out and talk with other rad people about the LG G2?
A: Check us out on IRC: #lg-g2 on Freenode

EFS Backup:

Backup EFS after jailbreaking your G2. EFS is split into 2 partitions modemst1 and modemst2. 
Save the .img files somewhere in case you need them in the future(email, cloud, etc..).

adb shell
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1 of=/sdcard/modemst1.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2 of=/sdcard/modemst2.img

adb shell
dd if=/sdcard/modemst1.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1
dd if=/sdcard/modemst2.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2
