The LG G5 on T-Mobile now has root! So far it is the only US version that can be rooted. The root method is achieved by flashing a TOT file which flashes TWRP to your device from there you are able to flash SuperSU to gain full root access. There are some other commands you will need to type, and your PC will need to be set up for ADB and Fastboot.

As stated earlier this will only work on the T-Mobile variant. There are many variables here, but the root method dev has posted fixes for each situation that may arise. Head to the source link below for file downloads, and full instructions.
