How to root Verizon LG V10 on Android 5.1.1 [Guide]

LG V10 [1]These are the guidelines to root the Verizon LG V10 running on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop updates.

Like you know, the Verizon smartphones are always a royal pain to try to root, and it proved to be no different with the Verizon V10 device. Many of the other V10’s have access to the root file system for many months already. The AT&T version of the V10 has suffered a similar fate as the Big Red’s version, and thankfully can be rooted using the same tool we have here.
