I used manual method:
1. adb devices
2. adb reboot recovery
3. In recovery selected 'apply update from adb' (it did not ask for yes/no)
4. adb sideload kk_root.zip
5. Reboot

Btw, I think that the system partition is read-only.
At least I can't modify hosts file.
Do we need a modified kernel for a write access to the system partition?

not sure... I dont even have KK as an option for LS980 yet. I've had to test thru others.

you tried mounting system as r/w first I assume?

Yes. Mounting system as r/w works.
But then deleting/modifying any file on system partition does not work.
But at least I can backup/restore user apps/data via Titanium Backup (this confirms that the basic root rights are working fine).

I run the script on my D802 but it hanged after the step of selecting "apply update from adb".
I closed the window and put the last command manually though and everything worked perfectly.
Cheers!

same for me


works like a charm when doing the last step manually. Thanks a lot! Waiting for 4.4.2 root has been well worth it!

hmm might be SELinux thing. Might need to disable in custom kernel... not sure just yet.

when it hangs after the "apply update from adb" ... the next command in the script is a "pause" which should instruct you to hit enter to continue.

was Enter pressed and still nothing happened? or did it not tell you to hit Enter?

There was a press any key to continue prompt before the hang, not sure if you were supposed to press enter there instead. I could check.

Nope, hitting enter there doesn't seem to do anything before or after pressing any key.

Changelog:
v25 - Added root for 4.4.2 devices. Added G Pro 2 D838 support. Thanks to @jarari2 for the idea to go through stock recovery.

Scripts need testing!! I am 99% sure the method works across all ioroot support devices but I am NOT 100% sure if the script/bat files are perfect.

Manual method below if you don't wanna use script:

Code:
Download and extract the latest IOroot.zip
Enable USB Debugging. VZW users must also enable ethernet mode. 
Open terminal/command prompt. windows/linux users: cd into /ioroot folder. mac users cd into /ioroot/mac
(windows users can hold shift key, right click in ioroot folder. Select "open command window" option.

copy/paste commands below.. hitting enter/return after each line. 

adb devices
adb reboot recovery
(when booted in recovery, select: 'apply update from adb' with power button)
adb sideload kk_root.zip

reboot when zip finishes flashing. done.

*ATTENTION*
Verizon G2 4.4.2 seems to nag about files being modded or a virus being installed... obviously there are more checks in place to detect root. I assume a simple .apk freeze will fix the nag... which apk though.. I do not know. That's for you guys for bother with


Works Super! Thanks http://forum.xda-developers.com/images/smilies/good.gif
