I realize this is a pretty new phone and since it is a lower end device it is probably not a priority for developers, but just wanted to ask.

Does anyone know if there is a way to root this phone?

Just to update I have tried KingRoot, both the mobile and PC versions, and it did not work.

Any further developments with this? Has anyone tried TowelRoot or any of the other methods listed here: http://www.xda-developers.com/root/

Thanks in advance...

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...

Really want root. There is too much bloatware on this device and I would love to get the integrate sd card as internal working. LG disabled it on all their devices sadly. If there is anyone out there who would be willing to help, we would be ever so grateful! Thanks!

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.

It's a pretty crappy phone as is...way too much boatware, not always responsive, and the battery runs out quickly. Needs root!

There is another thread about the K3 here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gene...lg-k3-t3479758
Some of us are offering donations to anyone who can root it and post the instructions.[COLOR="Silver"]
