D620r rooting issue

So I've followed the steps but it doesn't seem to budge.
Here is what I do exactly, and tell me if I do something wrong.

1. I install the kingroot thingie, and root with it. It instals KingUser and something written in Chinese/Japanese/Korean (can't differentiate between those).
2. I install the SuperSu from playstore (did try with the one in MRW folder as well, didn't do anything different).
3. I attempt to install binaries but it fails (tried rebooting, still the same)
4. Using ES File Explorer I copy the MRW folder to the internal storage.
5. I am installing the Terminal Emulator on play store.
6. Then I'm opening the terminal emulator, type in "Su" (without the ") and hit enter and as a response I get "/system/bin/sh: Su: not found
7. Then for the sake of it I try inputting "sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
8. As a response I get "mount: operation not permitted java.lang.SecurityException: Permission Denial: killBackgroundProcesses() from pid=10412, uid=10117 requires android.permission.KILL_BACKGROUND PROCESSES" and it follows by several lines of code and that is that.

After that KingRoot, KingUser and the Chinese/Japanese/Korean thingie are still there, SuperSu still can't install binaries and root support is crappy at best. Some things work but most don't since the permissions are managed by KingUser which is really crappy.

Any idea why the thingie won't work?

I have a LG G2 Mini, with Lollipop 5.0.2 bought from T-Mobile, updated it to Lollipop myself.

When I had it on KitKat I had proper root managed by SuperSu.

Try everything from the begining, install Kingroot and without installing SuperSU from market execute root.sh from terminal (with 'su' previously).

Yai!

Try everything from the begining, install Kingroot and without installing SuperSU from market execute root.sh from terminal (with 'su' previously).

okay using "su" instead of "Su" did change everything, now SuperSu binaries are installed, KingUser is gone. Thank you! I've been busting my head over typo. -.-

Finally I can start customizing my device now :)

Cheers!

Kingroot needs active internet connection, maybe you switched it off.

    Hi, I've been busy trying to root my device (LG G2 mini, LG-D620r, V20, Android version 5.0.2), and I followed all of these steps, and things went fine, I think:



    WIth these exceptions:
    - Download binaries' - what does this mean?
    - Turn on your phone - it was never off?
    - Disconnect the phone from USB port - it was never connected? (I just downloaded the Google Drive files straight to my phone)

    Now, however, I get frequent notifications that 'Kinguser has stopped', and when I installed Root Checker Basic, it said, 'Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device'.

    I know there is not a lot of info to go by here, but does anyone know what could've gone wrong?! Thanks!!

    [edit] This reply is in response to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/g2-mini/development/root-root-g2-mini-lollipop-t3123652

    Try again, I had the same thing except the notification errors. Maybe u wanna try to root directly from your PC with iRoot, it worked for me and Root Checker recognized well
