Question [Q] Typically how long for root to be developed?

Just updated to 4.4.2 from a rooted 4.2.2 and lost root when I accepted the OTA update.
Being new to android I am wondering how long it typically take for a new root to be released?

I moved to android from iPhone because I was tired of waiting months for a jailbreak every time an updated ios was released.

Who? Me? You know what kingoapp is, right? Its a root everything program, I asked them when they will update it to include rooting our phones with KK. Soon as I hear back you will have your date.

Sorry, no not you. It was meant for gunnyman.

Being a newbie I'm just wondering typically how long it takes to get a working root after an update. I don't expect anyone to be able to tell me the exact date when a root program will be available for the G2 on kit Kat.

There's honestly no way of telling how long. Seriously... it can be a few days or even months. It all depends how long it takes to figure out.


Your best bet is to check the xda LG G2 forum for your specific carrier. Check it daily and someone will post about the progress. But don't post on the forum yourself.
