LG G2 is a powerful phone that can easily compete with the Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z or HTC One. If you own the LG G2 and want to use your new smartphone on full power without dealing with factory restrictions, use this guide and learn how to root lg g2.

So, if you are ready to take your phone to a higher level of performance, then complete this step by step guide. Also, stick to the guidelines from below and don’t complete things by yourselves; else you can mess things up and you can also end up in bricking your new LG G2.

NOTE: Be careful though as the present root solution can be applied only for the Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T model of the LG G2. Also, the steps from below are compatible with the Korean version of the smartphone (regardless the carrier you are on), so don’t use the present tutorial if you have a different variant than the ones mentioned above.

Gaining root access is an operation that must be completed for both high end and low end Android based handsets. Why? Well, easily, by rooting you are gaining access to the internal system of your device. After gaining root access, on your LG G2 you will be able to improve the performances, bump the speeds and upgrade the battery life. In a few words, on an unchained system you can apply custom ROMs (like CM10.2, ParanoidAndroid or AOKP), install custom kernels, flash custom recovery images, overclock the CPU and so on. As you can see, if you are an advanced Android user, root access is not an option for you.
