How to root LG G2 on Android Lollipop (all variants) [Guide]

LG G2 Lollipop [1]The LG G2 did have a reliable rooting method last year for most software updates thanks to the IORoot tool. However, recent software updates such as Lollipop have patched that exploit. The new way to root the LG G2 for any smartphone carrier network (including AT&T and T-Mobile) is using this One-Click rooting tool.

The new One-Click tool works a charm on Lollipop and it also works for the older Android KitKat software updates too, since at this time there’s no G2 variant running any software or firmware that it won’t work on. Here’s how it’s done:

REQUIREMENTS

BEFORE WE BEGIN 

HOW TO ROOT LG G2 ON ANDROID LOLLIPOP

  1. Download the One-Click package from the link above directly to the computer desktop.
  2. Right-click over that file and choose to extract the file.
  3. Click the script.bat file from inside the unzipped file.
  4. Now watch as the program you are about to use loads on the desktop.
  5. Connect the LG G2 to the computer with the USB cable.
    – if you have any problems with getting it to work try updating the LG USB Drivers on the PC for the smartphone.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions and it will begin rooting your smartphone in a jiffy.
  7. Do not touch any buttons until it completes–it will have a progress bar across the bottom so you can see.

The One-Click too is much easier than the other method that’s available, but there’s also a small chance you run into the MSVCR100.dll is missing error. If you are one of those unlucky ones, you should download the Visual C++ Re-distributable on the PC and try again. All you need to know is if your PC is 32 bit or 64 bit and download the links here: 32 bit [5]/64 bit [6].
