Files You Need

You need to flash a stock G4 Beat ROM back on the device if you want to get the warranty working again. The one click rooting script does not come with a unroot option directly from the program.
Rooting the LG G4 Beat

- Close down the program and reboot your Beat smartphone before you start installing your root-requiring applications.
- Open your Google Play Store application and browse for the basic root checker app to check if your device did get root access for free. Open the root checker app from your app drawer and agree to update the binary or grant the Superuser access if that’s what it asks from your device.

The LG G4 Beat might even have some custom ROMs available since it is a trimmed down version of the original and popular LG G4 smartphone. Many custom ROMs available for devices running Android require you to have a rooted device. You’ll also need to have a custom recovery installed on the device too.
