Worked on my D850 - had to switch to PTP mode and since I have TWRP I just went into advanced and enabled ADB sideload and all went good from there.

Initially I was rooted with towel root, I unrooted and rerooted hoping the AT&T update would stick(someone mentioned it would not work with towel root)

I didn't... i clicked GRIND and it says the device is patched. after that, there is no where any option for the "brutforce" ... so i don't know.

thanks.

I think the problem is your build number... this update kicked in a few days back. I also have the same build number, though is the V10I AME XX version.

I hope theres a fix soon. I just got my phone and would like to root

You took an OTA that fixed the vulnerability that IOroot uses to get root access. You need to either wait for someone to find a way to root these later versions or flash your phone back to a version that the current IOroot supports. Search the forums for instructions on using the LG Flash Tool to do this.

Make sure the sdcard is formatted to ext2 and use adb to put your device into recovery with this command "adb reboot recovery"

To clarify: do not format the external SD card with anything else than FAT32, otherwise it'll cause issues with plenty apps/roms (at least when trying out different roms frequently).

No it must be formatted to ext2 in order to be recognized by the recovery

Format the sdcard to ext2 on when you are rooting in the stock recovery

ADB shows up fine when the phone ON but when I got to recovery menu and pick UPDATE FROM ADB, it comes up as a USB device with the yellow caution looking sign. I tried to manual install it but it won't and if I point it to the folder where the drivers are, it keep installing it as USB controller device and with yellow sign icon that's telling me that its not functioning properly. Anyone Know how to fix this ??

Coming from a crappy HTC phone to LG...

I just got a sweet deal from Cyber Monday... and the phone came shipped with VS98511c..

I understand it's not supported, but has anyone found any alternative methods yet, or heard any news of upcoming events for 10B+?

Downgrading and flashing to a different version somewhat scares me, as I just got this phone. Would hate to brick it by downgrading a version that tries to prevent downgrading, haha.

Thanks for your time on reading this!

    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
    jimV21P.jpg

    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 Continue with the script or manually sideload;
    Code:
    adb sideload datroot.zip
    DAT ROOT means JAILBREAK!
    zWp7Ksx.jpg


    Extended info and FAQ below...


    Download and extract the latest ioroot.zip... datroot.zip is inside /ioroot/bts/
    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

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

    Mac:
    Double-click the ioroot.tool file to launch script.
    May need to chmod +x ioroot.tool 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. Use a cooler device or send me a LG G3 so I can work on a real phone.

    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 nice people about the LG G3?
    A: Check us out on IRC: #lg-g3 on Freenode

    Q: Which LG G3 do you have?
    A: I don't have one yet... you should send me one.

    guys.. my comment about sprint root was a joke to see how much interest there was in the root and see what kinda reactions there'd be.

    BUT.. some of the guys working on this need g3 devices... for root.. for unlock... for future exploits down the road...

    root for any unrooted G3's will come.. I can promise that. But.. it will most likely not be an update to ioroot specifically.. and I may not be the one to post...
    SO..
    the couple users who did donate for a future Sprint G3 root.. I will be refunding. But I do thank you for your enthusiasm. hold onto it and use it when root IS posted to ensure the G3 continues to see great work(moar r00t? moar unlox? moar hax? r0mz.. zzz). there is a great group of ppl poking at this.. but as i mentioned.. we all dont have G3's.. and some will have to buy out of pocket.. just for the sake of hacking and contributing to community. I think I've slept a total of 8 hrs the past 3 days(not complaining!).. trust me.. this is being looked at and worked on.

    keep your eyes on our twitters... @ tylerfixer (iomonster/thecubed/insertnamehere) .. @ teamandirc (jcase) .. i dont think shelnutt2 or beaups use twitter.. and me @ utoprime

    keep the assumptions to a minimum.. and please be patient(no not "months" patient)..

    and who knows.. maybe someone new will step up and surprise us all. :)

    tmo g3 root coming later tonight.

    sprint g3 root coming.. later.

    neither will be part of the ioroot name.


    update...
    i'm sorry. my bad for false hype. tmw(fri) is the day.

    Sir, thank you for work. Any chance to modify this script to root G3 international version?

    4.4.2 method should work for any G3 that can be booted into stock recovery. "adb reboot recovery" should take you to a stock recovery screen with a menu. If you get an Android figure with an error this 4.4.2 root will not work for you.

    Anyone with a G3 that is not a F400 please test IOroot25r1 on your phone and report if you can get into the stock recovery menu and if you can root your phone!
    LS990 is Sprint's G3, VS985 is Verizon's G3, D850 is AT&T's G3, D851 is T-Mobile's G3, D852 is Canada's G3, and D855 is International.

    I hate asking for ETA's because then there is a chance it won't be met. Its after 10pm my time so my day is over. Will check back tomorrow but certain won't be available.

    Sent from my LG-D851 using XDA Free mobile app

    asking for ETA's is completely out of the question considering no one is paying these guys to do jack ....

    It will release when it releases!!!!!!!!11 Until then I high suggest those with ants in their pants and no restraints on their mouth/fingers chill out and wait quietly and patiently!!!

    Badgering devs about releasing things tend to piss them off and feel unappreciated for the time they spend on this stuff. ;)
