Default Very Hard Time Rooting

Ok let me start off by saying i totally understand the importance of doing research on here to finding the answer but i have had no luck. Recently just got a T-Mobile LG G2 4.2.2. Trying to root using the one click root process (root windows batch). Halfway through i get a...

Mounting system RW and pushing SU, then remounting system RO again
mount: Operation not permitted
failed to copy 'su/ to '/system/xbin/su' : Read-only file system
Unable to chown /system/xbin/su: No such file or directory
Unable to chmod /system/xbin/su: No such file or directory
mount: Operation not permitted
Installing superusuer

So it just installs superuser but i know im not fully rooted. Ive searched for a fix and seen similar problems but they were for HTC phones and i know the process is different. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Run as administrator and make sure you have the most up-to-date one click root

Running as admin closes the exe. and the one click root is the most recent

Day 2 and im still getting the same error message. Uninstalled ADB drivers and reinstalled. Tried IORoot 15 and 16. Also tried to manually push adb on my pc but it runs then quits. I've tried to research this for hours now and still no luck Does anyone have a proper work around for TMo version? Process seems very easy but for some reason i can not get passed this

Not sure what steps you are following, but xda is pretty much in agreement that this thread is the best one to follow the steps to gain root without complications

My LG G2 - LS980

Why Copy Cloud is the best: unlimited space; unlimited file size; a lot of space to start out; easy to get more

thats the thread that i have been researching. I've followed every step. the only complication that comes is at the end to finally attempt root process and mount. thats when i get the error messages that i listed above
