root supersu lg g4

A root method is now finally available and you can root your LG G4 (H815) international variant. SuperSU, the universal root package has been reported to work on the LG G4 with Android 5.1 Lollipop. If you have unlocked the bootloader and installed a custom recovery, you can go ahead and root your LG G4.

With root you enjoy the full potential of your device. You can use special applications that work only with root access such as Titanium Backup, Xposed framework and even make the performance better by uninstalling bloatware apps that you do not use.

Fortunately, the latest release of SuperSU is working on the LG G4 and it is the best way of rooting the phone. Follow the guide below for all details.

    Thanks worked like a charm following your guides. The unlock process did wipe the system so be prepared.

      Does this work with all variants? I have H810.

    You need a custum recovery to root.. but you need root to install twrp… little unclear here??

    • You do not need root to install TWRP. One method of installing TWRP does require root, but the second method with a PC does not need root.

        Rooting was succesfull 🙂
