I've always done it manually (on osx), but you can open up the bat file and see what commands it's issuing. It only amounts to pushing ytiruces_1a_vzw to your sdcard, unplugging/disable debugging/re-anable debugging/plug back in, then push su, etc etc...I'd recommend getting the latest SuperSU though. You can find it on xda.

I sent the new aboot.img to thecubed, but if he or djrbliss don't have time, I'll see what I can do eventually.

I don't know nearly enough to risk trying anything that's of my own creation. Haha. I'll wait it out. Just want to get rid of all this bloatware is all.

This means your phone will show ROOTED in the settings menu,

If you do not want to possibly invalidate your warranty
press CTRL-C to stop this script.
You will have a rooted ADB, but no apps on the phone will be able

Okay, I couldn't get it to work because I was using ioroot10 from the first post. With ioroot12 it worked, but superuser was always granting any app without asking me (option - prompt was checked). I unistalled this ugly superuser and installed SuperSu from chainfire. Now it works!

On the LG Spectrum we used the older aboot.img to get recovery to work. Wonder if it would work here too.

Now accepting donations to get my own LG G3

How-to:

Easy as 1-2-3!

1 Run ioroot.bat, ioroot.sh, ioroot.tool or open command prompt/terminal, cd into /ioroot/bts/ and type;
Code:
adb reboot recovery


If you DO NOT have this menu in stock recovery IOroot will not work for you!


2 Select "Apply update from ADB" w/power button. Sideload mode is now enabled.



3 Hit a button to continue the ioroot script or manually sideload;
Code:
adb sideload datroot.zip

DAT ROOT means JAILBREAK!


Extended info and FAQ below...

Windows Drivers:
Verizon Drivers - HERE
Drivers for everyone else - HERE


Download and extract the latest ioroot.zip... datroot.zip is inside the bts folder.
ioroot also jailbreaks other LG devices. Supported devices are found in the device list in this thread.
Enable "USB Debugging" on phone. Accept RSA certificate to allow ADB access. Not accepting RSA will cause ADB device to show as "offline"
Verizon users must also enable "Ethernet" for USB mode.

Windows:
Install drivers.
Double-click on ioroot.bat in ioroot folder.

Linux:
Open terminal and cd into /ioroot/ folder
chmod +x ioroot.sh
./root.sh

Mac:
double-click on ioroot.tool* in ioroot folder.

** may need to chmod +x the file first.


FAQ
Q: Will this jailbreak other LG devices?
A: It will jailbreak any LG device which can be booted into stock recovery with menu. Confirmed devices are found in the device list in this thread.

Q: Why do I see an android with a red x or just reboot when I try to get into recovery?
A: Your device has a lame recovery and may have issues jailbreaking w/current IOroot 4.4.2.

Q: Will this root non-LG devices?
A: Probably not.

Q: The script doesn't work for me, can you help?
A: No, use terminal to manually enter the commands or ask for help in the thread.

Q: I can't get 'adb devices' to see me phone, can you help?
A: learn2android

Q: Know any hip places to hang out and talk with other rad people about the LG G2?
A: Check us out on IRC: #lg-g2 on Freenode



EFS Backup:

Code:
Backup EFS after jailbreaking your G2. EFS is split into 2 partitions modemst1 and modemst2. 
Save the .img files somewhere in case you need them in the future(email, cloud, etc..).

Backup:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1 of=/sdcard/modemst1.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2 of=/sdcard/modemst2.img

Restore:
adb shell
su
dd if=/sdcard/modemst1.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1
dd if=/sdcard/modemst2.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2
