Hey guys,

My friend just got the LG G2 for Verizon and he would like to root it.

He asked me this and thought to ask you experts :

Could you recommend a "safe" option for rooting? I'm very happy with the phone as-is but I need tethering capability. used foxfi for tethering for years but it doesn't work on kitkat. so maybe minimal root access?

If he's happy with the stock rom, ioroot25 is what you need to root it, there's a guide in the General section on it.

It is strictly for rooting the phone which you need to do if you want to mod the stock rom or install a recovery to install other roms.

After rooting (ioroot 25 or towelroot) you can easily modify the Hotspot provisioning for tethering or flash a stock based rom that has it built in. Either way, I'd highly recommend installing a custom recovery and making a backup. If you go the rom route, I'd highly recommend Xdabbeb's 24a rom. Stock plus a few great additions (including tethering).
