The page you are currently viewing(post #869) is my original IOroot post.
IOroot for LG G Flex thread can be found here.
Current Version - IOroot24y u no hit thanks button?
As of IOroot21... EFS backup has been added to the root script. EFS is backed up after fully rooting.. the last step in the script.
EFS is backed up into the ioroot folder on your computer. If running ioroot on mac.. it'll be in the ioroot/mac folder.
This will hopefully reduce future issues where EFS is corrupted and the user never made a backup of EFS.
Store backed up EFS partitions somewhere safe.
Confirm your device is supported below.
Download latest IOroot zip and extract it.
Set phone in USB Debugging mode.
Set USB mode to Charging only(this may vary based on model).
Verizon users need to set USB connection to "Ethernet" mode.
Confirm device is detected in ADB using "adb devices" command.
Be sure to accept the RSA prompt on your phone.. and check the "always" box as well.
Run script and follow the onscreen instructions.
If the script is stick at "waiting for device".. turn your phone screen on and unlock it.. make sure ADB has the proper permission and that the ADB RSA prompt isn't sitting on the YES/NO screen. Check the "always remember" box when you accept it!!!
Windows: Download and install proper ADB driver. Double-click on root.bat
Linux: cd into IOroot folder -> chmod +x root.sh -> ./root.sh
Mac: cd into /IOroot/mac folder -> chmod +x root.sh -> ./root.sh

Make sure to read all of the scripts on-screen text or you may miss something. Hitting a button when it's not time to do so or not reading everything on screen can cause problems. Make sure the phone is unlocked with the screen on whenever possible as well.
If the scripts fail for you check out the manual directions further down the page. The manual method is only a few ADB commands and can help if I've messed up in the scripts somewhere... or if the scripts just don't seem to be working for you. Taking it one step at a time manually almost always results in success.
Still not working?
I need the output from the 4 ADB commands below along with IOroot version and if it was on Windows/Linux/Mac. Any errors you come across would help as well...
adb shell "getprop ro.product.model"
adb shell "getprop ro.build.target_operator"
adb shell "getprop ro.lge.swversion"
adb shell "getprop ro.build.fingerprint"
WITHOUT POSTING ALL OF THE ABOVE INFO I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HELP.
ONLY THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF IOROOT IS SUPPORTED!!
Confirm full root with rootchecker. ( @joeykrim )
Support a great dev by buying the Pro version.
If you only did the "temp root/adb only root" then you can confirm root by opening adb shell and seeing # instead of $.
For custom recovery(TWRP/CWM) run FreeGee ( @Shelnutt2 )
Check out the FreeGee donate version if you want to support a great dev.
Manual Root Method:
IOroot24 Download: HERE
Download and extract the latest IOroot.zip
Enable USB Debugging. VZW users must also enable ethernet mode.

(windows users can hold shift key, right click in ioroot folder. Select "open command window" option.
copy/paste commands below.. hitting enter/return after each line.
Linux/Mac users may have to enter ./ before adb on each line.

This next depends on your computer/phone model...
USB Connection Mode needs to be toggled.
Ways to do this are listed below...
a. Unplug usb cable from phone then re-plug.
b. Toggle USB mode from Charge to MTP back to Charge
c. Toggle USB mode from Ethernet to MTP back to Ethernet (VZW users)
