Purple drake should have worked then though. But you will only get temp root I think unless you get twrp flashed and magisk or supersu flashed.

Why ever? I've rooted on a few versions of lollipop. If it roots on lollipop, it should root on kitkat. Try upgrading/downgrading to a different version.Yeah one would think right? Purple Drake was unfortunately not my first try though seemed to be the one that kind of focused on the hardware I was using. I've tried Kingroot, iroot, one click root, Kinguroot and a few others whose names escape me at this moment since I'm not currently at the computer. If they were available I've attempted both the app and PC versions of the software with the same results. Doing several attempts after restarting the device and doing a full factory reset of the device.
I have successfully rooted two LG Gpad 7.0 v410 AT&T tablets now with purple drake as a preliminary step toward installing a google-less Lineage OS build. Those both ran android 4.4.2, and the one I just rooted was build= KOT491.v41010d
The third tablet has a different android
build number LRX22G
Android Patch level 2017-05-01
Software version V41020g
This "invulnerable" one has the newer style of navigation buttons, instead of the little house shaped home button, it shows the triangle, circle, and square key icons. (Both of the successfully rooted tablets had the older style nav buttons... I already installed Lineage 14 on one of them so I don't know for certain what it used to have.)
for the 5.0.2 Gpad, I got this output:
Your phone is a [ LG-V410 ] on [ ATT ] running SW version [ V20g ] ...

We tried to temproot you, and it didn't work. This phone isn't vulnerable, it would appear.
Please post on XDA with your phone model, carrier, and SW version in the PurpleDrake thread and someone will take a look.
Your phone has been rebooted back to normal system mode, no changes have been made. Thanks for trying!
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
I'm not certain this device has been carrier unlocked so I've begun that process with AT&T. I'm not sure how to tell if it's locked but it's 100% bogged down in AT&T bloatware so I suspect so.
I Know it's an older device, but if you could assist in rooting it I'd really appreciate it. Towelroot does not support this device currently. I hope I've provided the requested info.

Update 2: THE DEVICE was STILL NOT ROOTED, but it was possible to boot to TWRP (adb reboot recovery) and install the latest version lineageos https://forum.xda-developers.com/d290n/development/rom-cyanogenmod-14-1-lg-l-fino-t3514200
So the main question, how to root my device is still unanswered to me. I would appreciate, if someone has a solution for me...
Big Thanks to all Supporters & DEVs on XDA! :good:
Did you try LineageOS's instructions on how to root your phone?
The phone's not the best but it sufficed when my Galaxy S4 carked it!!! Anyway, the instructions are good and able to root phone and install TWRP. Just experimenting now with various ROMs.
What is this?
This is a utility to easily root your LG G3 (specific models only). It's a fairly foolproof script that includes all the dependencies you'll need for getting your phone rooted easily.
This is the LITE version. This means that this version will only ROOT your phone. If you have a T-Mobile G3, we'd suggest you look for the full version in this same forum on XDA, since that will root, install TWRP, and prevent your root checker from showing your phone as rooted!
Is my phone compatible?
The new LG G3 models each are slightly different with regards to rooting and unlocking.
The vulnerability we're exploiting for PurpleDrake has actually been present on quite a few LG phones for some time, and as such this script will automatically detect if your phone is capable of rooting with this method.
To see a matrix of which LG G3 phones are compatible with this root, please see this Google Docs spreadsheet that we've compiled.
When you run this program, your phone will reboot and run a test to see if it's compatible. If the application succeeds, it'll let you know that it's able to permaroot you. If not, it'll fail gracefully and reboot you back to normal Android without having changed anything.
How do I use this?
WE NOW SUPPORT WINDOWS! YAY ME
To start, for either platform you'll need to scroll down to the download section and get the file.
Ensure that your phone is in ADB mode (PTP Mode for everyone but Verizon. Verizon users need to be in "Internet"/"Ethernet" mode)
Linux Instructions (in a terminal!)
- Extract the file you downloaded...
tar xvf ~/Downloads/PurpleDrake-Lite_VERSION.tar.gz
- Mark the application as executable, and run it!
chmod +x purpledrake_linux.sh
OSX Instructions (just a bit easier)
- Extract the file you downloaded
- Double-click on "purpledrake_osx"
- Extract the file you downloaded
- Double-click on "purpledrake_windows"
The application will guide you through all the steps you need.
You will still need to install SuperSU from the market after installing PurpleDrake. This pack does not include one.
After, be sure to check @autoprime's post for how to disable OTA upgrades! here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=54254062&postcount=2
But, what if I don't want to run your script to root?
Well then, I'd be a little hurt, but you can still do everything the script does manually.
Download the package, and extract it. Open a terminal in the main folder of the archive and run these commands:
adb reboot --bnr_recovery adb push ./assets/start_restore /temp/start_restore adb push ./assets/permaroot.bin /temp/start_restore adb reboot
That will perma-root you, however there's no protection from doing something stupid or the phone being incompatible. Please be careful!
Where do I get this?
WINDOWS/OSX/LINUX VERSION OUT NOW!
- Fixed Windows support
- Fixed OSX ADB issues not detecting phone first try
- Fixed race conditions leading to errors permarooting
- Added 64-bit Linux ADB
Old version here... (OSX/Linux only)
Please DO NOT mirror or re-upload the PurpleDrake software to your own site, or any other file host.
If you need drivers for Windows (thanks @autoprime for having these handy!):
Thanks so much! How can I show my appreciation?
Since this was a collaboration project, proceeds that are made from this root will be split between amongst us so we can purchase a Sprint test phone to root (as it's currently not rooted).

After crc check finishes unplug the phone. plug phone back in. it should now be seen in LG Flash and start flashing. Phone will reboot when finished. You may end up on a screen with s "2"... let it sit there for a minute or two. If stuck on "2" try unplugging the usb cable from the phone.. wait 10 seconds.. then plug the usb cable back in. now wait 30 seconds and hopefully it changes to a "3" Once the phone says "3" you can unplug the USB.. remove the battery and plug back in.. boot back up... you are now 100% stock.

Answer is quite simple: you did not get root access to the system. You are not rooted. On why you did not get root, I don't have an answer. The screenshot from script you ran unfortunately does not show, if on the way something might went wrong but the script did not notice and/or did not care. I for example failed to root 10N, it's quite possible that PurpleDrake doesn't work anymore and got fixed.
Of course. Any KDZ compatible with your device can be flashed. You will lose root of course and will not be able to regain it while on unrooted Lollipop.
Two possible answers, as there are principally two ways to obtain root: a) and b)
Thank you! @thecubed & PurpleDrake
this guide help my very much! (with pic & every thing)
and hope this will help too: (Unroot for OTA using LG PC Suite & it Clear the "ROOTED" to "UNROOTED" on the DM)
