Rooting the LG after ZV8 update
Rooting Method for ZV8 has been found!
You will need:
SpriteBud in "/System/xbin/"
Steps to Root:
First, we must make sure you have spritebud. You can check for this via ADB with this code.
adb shell ls -l /system/xbin/spritebud
If you get any error message along the lines of "no such file or directory", then you my friend are unable to root. Otherwise, you should be presented with information about spritebud, and that is your golden ticket to root
Ok for those who have spritebud please continue on. If you did not have spritebud, you can download the txt file attached for instructions on how to root the zv8 in your case. Its a bit of a longer process but sure does work.
