If you are looking to root your LG G3 D855 with a One-click solution, we finally have one available thanks to Auto Rec — a new application that’s available from Google Play.
In just a few short steps you’ll easily have the system internals unchained so you can start installing root-only apps. Furthermore, you can install TWRP recovery from the same app with just one more tap of the button.
This is how to root the LG G3 smartphone that has the D855 model number when the operating system is running on the Android Lollipop version. That could be anything from Android 5.0 through to Android 5.1 and could also offer many firmware build numbers.
- You want the International LG G3 with the model number D855 to use this guide. You can check the model number of yours by navigating to the Settings > About Device on the smartphone menu.
- The application is designed to work with Android Lollipop. It won’t matter which version of Lollipop from Android 5.0 through to Android 5.1 Lollipop.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
- We recommend backing up the G3 since this is a new root method without much testing. That doesn’t mean this is not a reliable method. Everyone shouldn’t have any issues.
- You can backup the data using the built-in backup features for storing the phone contacts and media. You might want to check out some application over at Google Play for storing the other data.
- Download the LG USB Drivers on the Windows PC to follow this guide.
- Even though we are using an app, you are still voiding the warranty. Do not follow the guide if you want to be able to send it away for free repairs.
