Default [q] failing while rooting lg g2 f320l

Hi,
I got the new G2 F320L LGU+ version from Korea.
Did an OTA to software version F320L11K.
Then tried to root using IOROOT method http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448887

But it gave following error
Quote:
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 superuser
5338 KB/s (1468798 bytes in 0.268s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/superuser.apk
Success

Done.

Please check the above for any errors and let me know if you run into any issues
.
Enjoy your phone!
Press any key to continue . . .
Then I went thru the thread and found one of the solutions which suggested flashing back to stock ROM then factory reset and again root will work.

So I did that. But it still is not rooting.

I used the method posted by "hyelton" in the following link to flash. It flashed alright back to F32011G version of sofware i.e. before the update.

The complete message that is coming in the command prompt is as below

Press any key to continue . . .
Looking for device...
Make sure drivers are installed.

Check Windows Device Manager if
script sits on "wait-for-device"
Determining carrier...
Found LGU phone!
Pushing g2_security...

************************************************** *****
STOP!! Unplug usb then go to developer options
and disable USB debugging and re-enable it.
Once you've done that, re-plug your usb...
************************************************** *****
Press any key to continue . . .
Waiting for device...
Now it's time to install su and superuser.

Please note! This will trip LG's rootchecker!

This means your phone will show ROOTED in the settings menu,
and in the LG Download mode.

If you do not want to possibly invalidate your warranty
press CTRL-C to stop this script.
You will have a rooted ADB, but no apps on the phone will be able
to access root functions.

Press any key to continue . . .

It doesn't support 320L/S version.

You may try the following method:-

ROOT:
F320 root pack (from choimobile.vn)
link: mega.co.nz/#!wB5B3AyC!YCtJDg9vfLRuwxoR8E0ZnlpRMctIft5zbzczA7u LAyo
or
Another method:
link: mega.co.nz/#!QN42wbgA!CKH5mUyTNJrSnopt88dpRwbvPqYUw_W_g_91XZG 62ts

(basically they are using the same method, one is by exe and the other is cmd)

> Make sure you enable allow "untrusted sources" (Setting | General | Security) and enable usb "debugging mode" (Setting | General | Developer options)

How to show Developer option under General (by default this option is hidden)
Setting -> General -> About Phone -> Software Information
Press "Build number" 10 times

> Install the LG usb drivers, connect the phone in LG software mode.
> Connect the phone to your PC via USB Cable.
> Run the "Root LG G2.exe" from the attached archive.
> Follow the command prompt instructions
