Question [Q] Root + Recovery Questions...

OK. So, The LG G2 Forums are a little crazy.... Basically, I Need someone to direct me to the appropriate places to get the right root and recovery.
I'm assuming that TWRP is the recommended recovery?

Thanks.

Depends on what your G2's carrier version is, and the software version you are on. If you're on KitKat 4.4.2, there hasn't been a straight rooting method YET. Devs are still working on that.
In case you are still on JB 4.2.2, you can root via IOroot22. Just search for IOroot22 on xda and oyu will find it. Pretty clear instructions as well.
Good luck.
