BTW to find out if you have root checker do this command in the shell:
Code:
Select Code
ps | grep rctd
I have no process matching rtcd

Lucky you.
What device version and firmware do you have?
But it should be rctd not rtcd

I check to see if my phone was rooted using the 3845 method and it says it isn't rooted but if I do a full reset when the phone comes back to life it comes up with the TWRP. Screen for a short amount of time, how do I get rid of that screen on startup?

yes mate takes it back to a complete stock phone with no markers set off and locked on the download screen

DO NOT unplug it until 100% on the PC. the phone will reboot about 80% on the pc but phone will have reached 100%. next do 2 factory resets using the power button and vol up method and you will find the unrooted status re-appears if you go back into download mode. Its also worth noting that it works best and flawlessly on com port 4 some ppl have experienced issues on other com ports.

obviously I accept no responsibility for you breaking your phone if you try it but I have done this at least 70 x to get out of bad fashes and it works every single one.

takes you about 30 min for the file to download but without that file downloading its probably about 5 minutes user input the longest/hardest bit being getting into the factory reset screen. lol.
i did all u said but when the tool starts to download the software it just stops after 20-25 secs everytime .....so downloaded the kdz file myself and flashed it with the lg flash tool 2014 which provided in that thread and then did 2 factory hard reset but it didnt work as it still shows ROOTED in red in the download mode .....plz help anyone help me ....i have to send my phone to warranaty .....thx in advance
