Default New user: Couple questions (root, unlock related)

Evening everybody!

Ive acquired an LG G2 (verizon variant).

Ive looked around and found out how to root. I plan to use one of these methods below. Is one of these preferable?

How do I unlock the bootloader? I havent found that thread yet. Im assuming it can be done since there are a bounty of roms in development.

Thanks in advance for the help. Im on my phone and having trouble searching any further.
There is no substitute for reading about the software you are about to alter your $700 device with.

the root you use would depend on what version you are on i believe.
the bootloader cant be unlocked, its bypassed with Loki, which i read was patched by the kk update.
