Hi Everyone, I just want to share this easy steps to root Android L.

Note: Android L is a Developer preview, it is not stable as the KitKat version and it is using ART runtime only, so not all apps are compatible.

Update: The v2.01 release fixes some incompatibility issues with the Android "L" Preview. There is no binary update over v2.00.

Google Play:

Download the latest TWRP here:

Quote:

rename the "openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.1-hammerhead.img" to "recovery.img"

I recommend backup all your data/files in a PC, to avoid data loss. And don't blame me if you have a bootloop or stuck at boot logo.
TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Quote:

Boot into bootloader

For TWRP format cache first

Code:
fastboot format cache 
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Boot into recovery

Flash the SuperSU-v2.01.zip

Reboot

You now have root access.

Thanks to @Chainfire

I have root access but cannot read/write to system. Is this a known issue at the moment?

Thumbs up
At first I had a problem with wiping the caches via TWRP, but I had to flash supersu first then wipe the caches and now everything is up and running. Great job!
