Hello All,

I just purchased a G2 and it's running Android 4.2.2, Build # JDQ39B, Software Version D80010q.

I'd like to root and I just read This Newbie Guide

From reading that I got that I need to go back to Software version 80100d to root is that correct?

Is this the easiest way to do so? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663369

Anything else I should be aware of?

Just hoping someone can help me. I'm going to wait for a response before I jump in and start doing things.

This is LG G2 signing off from XDA app. Until next time!

Yes that is the easiest method to do so since it is automated

Can someone give me more info on this? Will IORoot give me root without having to go back to 80100d? I do want to flash ROMS and use a recovery like TWRP.
