The new LG G3 is an impressive smartphone with tons of the best features available for any smartphone on the market. Not to mention a few firsts like a 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD display and laser autofocus camera, but specs aren’t everything. Some users may want to hack their device and rooting is the first step.
LG offers more customization in terms of software than most, but many users still like to root their device for added functionality or control. Just like jailbreaking an iPhone, Android users can root their phone to make as many changes as possible. From flashing all-new software to making quick Xposed mods and more.
Rooting Android is a process that allows smartphone and tablet owners to have additional control or “Root Access” over the Android operating system. This is usually done so that owners can circumvent carrier or manufacturer limitations (like hotspot blocks) by uninstalling third-party apps and bloatware, installing custom themes or icon packs, or tweaking settings as per each user’s own liking.
A root method has finally been obtained for the LG G3 this weekend and it works for all carriers in the United States and reportedly for other models as well. Read on for all the details and our brief on how to root LG G3.
Users might be a little worried when it comes to doing something like rooting their device. This is a daunting task if you’ve never done it before and yes, it will void your warranty. That being said, this is one of the easiest root methods you’ll ever do. First time users will not need any knowledge to root LG G3.
In less than a minute, you will be able to fully root the LG G3 with the instructions below, without the need to use ADB or connect it to a computer and enter any commands. As simple as they come.
Even if you’re going to do multiple clicks, we call it the “one click root” method. Instead of doing lots of fancy code and entering commands into ADB, this simply requires the user to download an app, press a button, and restart. It’s that easy.
First of all, you need to allow your LG G3 to install apps from 3rd party sources instead of Google Play Store. Come in.
After enabling it, the rest of the process of rooting LG G3 is extremely simple and will not take a few minutes of your time. It’s called StumpRoot and here’s what you need to do.
That’s enough! Just download an app and tap a button and you’re done. You now have low-level access to fine-tune and modify your shiny new LG G3 as much as you want. For those who might be confused, here’s a quick how-to video.
As a reminder, this will void your warranty. The makers of the app or Moyens I/O are not responsible for what users choose to do with their smartphones. Multiple reports claim this works perfectly and is an extremely easy root method, but as always, be careful. This should cause no problems and no data should be lost. However, it’s always good to back up important data just to be safe.
Root the new LG G3 and enjoy.
