Default How do I root Verizon g2 already on the 12b update? And can I unlock boot loader?

I got my g2 with 12b already on it, how do I root it? The root thread I saw only mentions 11a or whatever the previous update is, I'm also worried know if i can unlock the bootllader or not

You can root 12b with ioroot19. Bootloader is locked so use freegee to install twrp recovery.

The newest version of ioroot is ioroot25, which will root all versions including 24A http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...34539103321731. Once rooted, download the TWRP 2.6.3.3 from JRJ442's link https://www.dropbox.com/s/meddqewk6muv8p5/twrp.img, also download his TWRP 2.7 https://www.dropbox.com/s/rnj9i1lsg8...P2.7-VS980.zip and put both on your sdcard. Then install flashify and use that to flash TWRP 2.6.3.3 ( Just make sure you choose recovery when you start flashify and select the twrp.img from your internal storage. Once you reboot into TWRP 2.6.3.3 you can install the TWRP 2.7 zip (you previously downloaded) via the install in TWRP. These are the exact steps I followed and it was seemless. I can also sucessfully create backups via TWRP 7 without issue (seems to be a problem with some versions).

That's why I use cwm. Never had those issues

why are people answering such an old question? I've had it rooted, modded, and have installed cyanogenmod plenty of times since this question was posted back in january

Because once the KitKat OTA goes live by VZ (could happen, right?), there would be no way to get on the 12B bootstack (no TOT or KDZ). Right now it seems that most of the devs work with the OTA leak will involve the 12B bootstack. You can always go back to 10b or 11a through the tot method. You might not be able to go back if you take an official VZ KitKat update (could happen right??)

Idk maybe I'm wrong. Just my FUD.
