Hey guys,

I've got a very simple question.

I have the lg g2 d802 and i updated it to the latest firmware. (screenshot)
what if im going to root my device with ioroot, will it brick, is it safe or is it even possible to root?
Im a little unsure about this.

Thanks

You can root, it is safe, but know one thing, its not recommended to OTA update afterwards...

Only if you don't have a recovery custom.
However you might loose the root by updating.
