I ran ioroot24 on my lg g2, thinking it would root it. I did everything it said and it finished and my phone restarted and I didn't have root. Anyone know what happened. I have d80020c 4.4.2

There's no easy root for 4.4.2 as of right now.

You would need to downgrade to 4.2.2, re-root and install custom recovery > then follow this : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2665985

There is no root or custom recovery for KitKat 4.4.2 as stated in the second post.

You CAN keep root if you go back to stock and flash a certain order.

LG fixed the Loki exploit used before. So they're trying other alternatives but nothing yet.
