4.4.2 root is here.
v25 - Added root for 4.4.2 devices. Now works on most LG 4.4.2 devices. Exceptions being the TMO D801 G2 and D838 G Pro 2.
Thanks to @jarari2
for the idea to go through stock recovery.
Manual method below if you don't wanna use script:
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 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.
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
Want to install custom recovery? It's under beta testing right now but read this - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=5003
no support for D803/VS980 yet until new kernel is built.. everyone else should be good to go. READ READ READ before doing anything.
It seems that the TMO D801 KK update doesn't allow you to use "adb reboot recovery" to drop into stock recovery... so ioroot25 will not work on TMO KK devices UNLESS someone finds another way to adb sideload on stock recovery. Without having the device myself... I cannot test methods to do this... so it's up to you TMO D801 users!
