Thumbs up LG G2 (D802) Stock 4.4.2 works!

Works like a charm. Took less than a minute, no problems detected, whatsoever.

So now you can root a T-Mobile D801 on 4.4.2 KitKat very easily. Which wasn't possible before with ioroot.

Meaning it'll root any G2 made. Not just the 801.

Install TowelRoot from here:

Then install AutoRec from here for TWRP recovery:

Then if your staying stock I highly recommend you download and install SuperSU in recovery so that it's properly rooted.

Thanks all. And of course I'm not responsible if this breaks the device or kills the cat. Use at your own risk.
does this work the same for d80120a and d80120e
