First of all Thank you @avicohh for LG One Click Root GUI/Script base on his Guide I Have successfully Rooted the Stylo using and Following some steps from there just adding some thing you may see in the progress of rooting:

Original LG One Click Root Guide and File Download -CLICK HERE-

After getting all necessary files this is what i did
1- Install LG drivers if they are not installed yet. (VERY IMPORTANT)

2- Download the LG One Click Script Root file above and extract to some folder. (double click on the 7z exe file)

3- Enable Usb debugging on your phone. (Go to Settings > General > About phone > Software information, tap Build number seven times and then go to Settings > Developer options and turn on Usb debugging) (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT STEP)

4- Connect your phone to pc. (it will install driver when connected just wait till is done)

5- Switch to MTP when drivers are full install

6- Double click on the LG Root Script.bat file (the Script will run)

7- Follow the instructions.

*Please leave your feedback if it worked for you

Many Many Thanks to @avicohhfor the LG One Click Root

P.S. I'm not a Dev. I just followed the original guide and the only thing i haven't install is Custom Recovery.

If you came across some Fail attend messages just wait a few more seconds, if that doesn't work try again in my case the first try work and 2 fail attends messages came up so just wait a few sec. if that happen

BE PREPARED. First boot can take a while!!! can stay on logo for up to 3 to 5 minutes or sometimes little more before it goes into Optimizing Apps. Have patience. Subsequent boots a pretty speedy.

+100 on that (Battery life + dedicated section for the phone) i have to agree with the battery life pretty neat and i'm sure is because CPU is doesn't have higher clock and screen is not so power hunger, other thing i'm satisfied is the memory management no matter what i do i haven't seen going lower than 1gb of ram always i been having between 1.2gb to 1gb free never had that before so pretty neat and i do have a lot of apps install most of them run in the background,

How can be make a request about making a Dedicated Section for the LG G STYLO? where do i need to sign if that happen i'll be posting some Bootanimations for this phone porting some old ones i created for the G2 and probably making some new ones.

I am pretty impressed with the device. I just bought it for my wife, which she doesn't care what phone I give her as long as it doesn't break the bank. Not able to do that with any of the flagships. Decided to give it a try risking not having the dev support. Hopefully more people takes the risk so we can have custom roms to play for. (not sure if my wife would like that) LOL

Ah, good, a T-Mobile Stylo thread. I just posted my thoughts in the thread for the Boost (Sprint) version, but anyway, I'm mostly liking this phone (except that the camera app doesn't offer manual exposure controls). I'm not sure I'm going to root mine just yet (hell, I still haven't rooted my Avant!), but it's nice to see that a root is available.

This is really a Lollipop issue, rather than a problem with the phone itself, but I found that the Embware call blocker (which disappeared from Google Play, go figure) doesn't work on the Stylo. It turns out, most of the call blockers out there aren't working on Lollipop.

What I particularly want is a pickup/hangup type of block, so Rachel from Card Services can't even leave a voicemail. I had this capability with the Embware blocker on the KitKat-equipped Galaxy Avant, even before I got around to rooting it. It looks like Google tweaked Lollipop to prevent pickup/hangup blockers from working. #&^%$%^!!!

Extreme Call Blocker claims to work on L, but I'm wary of forking over the cash for it.

There is a built-in reject list under the Call Settings menu, but it's just a straight-to-voicemail reject. I don't want to waste my time deleting spam voicemails, though Visual Voicemail is at least quicker than calling in.

I suppose I could just call T-Mobile and see if they could turn off voicemail entirely. That would at least make the native call blocker useful.

I'm considering buying the Stylo. Is it going to get a lot of support or is it mostly about flagships G3/G4 these days?
