Do you want to tweak your new LG G4 Android device in order to unleash its full power? I totally understand you. Maybe you think that it’s time to want to remove all those LG apps that you don’t really need such as LG Intelligent Agent, LG Bookmark Provider, or the GLONASS Airwave Test, not to mention that your carrier might have installed additional bloatware as well and the story is even more complicated.
Do you want to remove any of this bloatware? Join the club! Do you dream of a custom ROM that looks better than LG’s UX 4.0 U? There are plenty of options out there, but yes, there is something that you must do from the start; I am talking about the very same procedure that can be useful if you want to overclock your LG device, install custom kernels, make Nandroid backups and so on. Customizing and optimizing your LG G4 is not possible without rooting it, so here I am to help you.
Thanks to SuperSU, rooting has never been easier or faster, but there are several things that you must take care of from the very beginning. Before applying the steps from this guide, you have to unlock the bootloader of your LG G4 and to install a custom recovery image.
On your LG G4, developer options must be ensured, so go to Menu – Settings – About phone and tap several times on built number. Then, also check the USB debugging feature from Menu – Settings – Developer options and in order to be on the safe side, save your important personal data as long as during the root process your data might get corrupted.
Your phone’s USB cable are being required for this rooting guide, as well as a PC. If you have security features installed there, temporarily turn them off and don’t hesitate to verify if you have LG’s drivers installed on your PC. Finally charge your smartphone if the battery power left is lower than 60%; if it gets turned off while you try rooting it, a soft brick might be the result instead of the one that you have in mind.
