I don't want to install a new rom. Just want the phone rooted so I can get rid of the stupid bloatwares that LG decided to disable the disable key in their wisdom. Will the above steps suffice? Do I still run towelroot?

Cheers
Edit: Phone has official 4.4.2

If you only want root you can run either TowelRoot or StumpRoot. Either exploit should work fine on the D802T. No need to flash any ROMs.

Hi All,

Does the method described in this tread work? I am a little confused there seems to be conflicting results.

Hey man just wanted to quickly say THANKS.

Didn't realise rooting itself was so simple and straight forward with stumproot. Less than 5 mins to download, read the instructions and run... and root. Bloatware gone. YAY. No more goddamn remote widget.

Just used supersu and system app remover, both from play store. Just disabled the apps I could and deleted the rest like weather and quicktranslator. The whole process was (thankfully) very straightforward.

No more annoying popup/system hog. Running at almost 1gb memory free on official 4.4.2. Probably nothing compared to stock rom but big improvement from ~700mb before.

I do have a follow up question of my own: is there an equally simple and effective unroot option?

Need to unroot for an official ota update. It seems to be a minor update and the device is otherwise working great so only going to bother with it if the unroot is a simple process as well.

Thanks for that it would be good if these devices could run cm or any custom rom. Not sure about the un root sory. You might have to re flash stock rom

All I want to do is turn my D802t into a simple D802, using a euro open kdz.
I read that when I flash a euro open kdz, i also need to flash a d802 baseband.
But how do I flash a baseband when I dont have a recovery?
Any help or instructions would be really appreciated.
