    Disclaimer: Droid Forums will not be held responsible if you happen to brick your phone using this root method. Proceed at your own risk.

    The following method has been tested on the following LG G3 variants running Android 4.4.2 with success:

    • 850 (AT&T)
    • 852 (Canadian)
    • 855 (International) [root has been blocked on build numbers ending in 10F and 10G]
    • F400 (Korean) [new updates may also block this root procedure]
    • LS990 (Sprint) [doesn't work with ZV4]
    • VS985 (Verizon).


    Download

    The root tool for the LG G3 and extract it to your desktop: ioroot


    Root the LG G3
    • Make sure you have installed the LG USB drivers on your computer and enabled USB Debugging on your phone.
    • Make sure you’ve got your display set to not turn off automatically. This is important for the rooting process. You can change this time in the Display settings of your LG G3.
    • Turn on Airplane mode on your device. In case you own the Verizon LG G3, use Ethernet mode instead.
    • Open the ioroot folder that you extracted to the desktop and double click on the root.bat file.
    • A command terminal will open up and start running. When asked, press any key on your keyboard to continue with the process and follows the instructions as they appear.
    • Your phone will reboot once the process has been completed.
    In order to verify whether the procedure worked well, you can check the presence of root access using the SuperSU application, or Root Checker.
