Virus Threat

When I tried to download those 2 files, Windows Defender flagged a Virus Threat and the download failed. The link takes me to a very suspicious page?
How does xda forums allow posts with virus threats?

The site used to be ok.

I didn't have any problems in July, but I use good blockers.

But dev host has really gone dowhill

Notice the OP is from 7 months before that story. And the op is 3.5 years old.
A lot can change in 6 months, and a lot more in 3 years. The OP probably isn't around to maintain or update the post.

I still keep these files on my Mega account. But I haven't used them in quite some time. They arent new now....the post saying 3.5years old is accurate... If you still wamt the files...I can link it...but it isnt going to work om any LG device that was made after 2016

Sent from my Rooted (thanks messi!!!) and network unlocked LG TP-450 on T-Mobile's insanely fast 4gLTE network

Hey Sooners... am getting a used LG4 from 2015 and also need the root zip file and TWRP (got the driver and think it's clean)... could I bother you for a link to your LG4 file trove? Appreciate it.

No luck finding the files?

Can you say me if this method unlocks the bootloader? I lost my recovery because I used flashify to flash TWRP, but I think my bootloader is locked.

My moto z display cracked open and I need to put this F60 to work better. Cant work with no apps and 400mb of free memmory.

Which USB Debugging mode should be used?
What should the Device be named in Device Manager, to check if I'm on the right path?

I'm stuck when trying to execute the root command, nothing happens

    Code:
    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. 
    A lot.

    Original Guide

    Prerequisites
    1.) Download LG Root
    2.) Download LG Drivers
    3.) A micro USB cable connected to your PC
    4.) Your device must be unencrypted
    5.) Before you ask a question, make sure you looked at the pictures in the guide.


    1.) Download and unzip the LG_Root.zip in your preferred location


    I chose the Desktop for my location

    2.) Enable ADB debugging on your device

    Go to Settings > About Phone > Software Information and tap build number until you are presented with "You are now a developer"
    Exit back to Settings main screen
    In Developer Options enable USB Debugging (Some devices require enabling PTP for debugging to work)



    3.) In the root of LG_Root folder start a command prompt

    Instructions may vary based on Window's version
    Inside of LG_Root folder hold shift and right click a blank space you should see "Open command window here"

    4.) Now that we have a command prompt running in the root of the folder let's get started. (Commands are copy+paste unless specified)

    Let's make sure our device is connected
    Code:
    adb.exe devices

    5.) Great! My device is connected let's continue, we need to get the files onto the device used for this root method.

    In the same command prompt let's execute another command

    Code:
    adb.exe push busybox /data/local/tmp/ && adb.exe push lg_root.sh /data/local/tmp && adb.exe push UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp

    6.) Well that was easy , let's continue (Now that we have the files on our device we want to put our device is download mode)

    (Note this method may vary from device to device)
    Power off your device
    When the device is powered off, hold volume up and insert a USB cable connected to the PC
    Wait for the drivers to install


    7.) We're almost done (you've managed to get in download mode)

    8.) Let's find which COM port our device is connected to

    Double click ports.bat (This will give us the COM port in which our device is connected we are looking for the Diag port)

    You may exit this command prompt when you have your COM port number, keep the other command prompt open

    9.) Let's Begin! (Keep the device in Download mode)

    Let's run Send_Command.exe (It couldn't connect? Make sure you COM port number is correct it varies)
    Code:
    Send_Command.exe \\.\COM4

    fre9Z9l.png



    10.) Final Step!!!!!! (We must run the root script)

    Code:
    sh /data/local/tmp/lg_root.sh dummy 1 /data/local/tmp/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp/busybox

    VVoIri8.png




    11.) We're done

    You may pull the battery to get the device out of Download mode

    All credit goes to @jgkim find a post and thank this guy for posting the method.

    One Click Root

    You can follow the one click root guide here thanks to @avicohh

    Devices confirmed working with root method (If your device isn't listed it's most likely still supported)

    • LG F60 (all variants)
    • LG Tribute (all variants)
    • LG G2 (all variants)
    • LG MS395/D393
    • LG G3 (all variants)
    • LG L90 (all variants)
    • LG Transpyre
    • LG Volt (LS740)
    • LG G Flex 2

    NOTE: Do not attempt this on devices with 5.1.1 , at the time this method was posted it worked on many firmware 5.0.2 and below. With the current releases from LG, this method has and will brick many users. This can be said for the one click method as well. Failure to read the complete thread may render your device non repairable as the KDZ firmware isn't released for all LG devices.

    Linux version of Send_Command

    I've prepared a Linux port of the Send_Command tool. Now we can root without windows.
    Thank you to Only, pangolin.rollin, and Unjustified Dev who made this possible.

    Run the python script in a terminal for instructions. Feedback is appreciated.

    Got it my driver issue fixed with the help of this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59310899&postcount=471 the driver in the file he attached is just what I needed to get it to work correctly.

    It might also be very useful for anyone else who might run into the same problem I did. Cheers! :cool:
