My internationa G3 isn't being rooted with Towel Root (d855)






Anything I'm doing wrong? Just installed it from the TR site, installed and clicked 'Make it rain'.

From 10g or 10e fw towelroot is not supported anymore. Either downgrade your software (Read HowTo) or use other methods to root. Check dev section for other methods.

I also have the international LG G3 (D855 Singapore) and it didn't work for me and I was on the 10b firmware

"This phone isn't currently supported"
Towelroot just tells me that my phone isn't supported when I try use it. I have a LG-D855K.
Anyone have a solution?

Yap, your device(LG-D855K) is not supported for towelroot. (source: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?pli=1#gid=0)

You could try one of the other methods:

Stump root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...rizon-t2850906
PurpleDrake: http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g...-lite-t2821000
