Does anyone know if there is a way to root this phone?
I haven't found anything to date. Google searches lead to dead ends, and there is nothing here or in the Android Central forums. I am encouraged by the fact that a few more people have expressed interest in rooting the K3. In my - admittedly brief - experience with rooting, it seems like the path forward is simply to hope that a tech-oriented person, developer or otherwise, will buy a K3 and take the time to fool around with it.
To anyone who has searched for a method to root the LG K3 and ended up here, please take the time to create a username and post on this forum. Perhaps if more people show interest, it will lead to something...
I have a spare one with a shattered but working (Thanks to the skinomi on it!) screen I'd be willing to offer up for analysis. I'm trying to root for much the same reasons...bloatware being prime. More than half the internal memory is taken up by system apps and their updates! It wouldn't be so bad if all the amazon crap was moveable, but being system apps, are not...but who the hell puts trial ware on as a system app? It means that I can have only two or three user apps, even with most of their data moved to the sd card, before running into space issues when installing updates.
