SuperSU: The reward of getting Root access on LG G3!
LG began to roll out for the much awaited Marshmallow update for its 2014 flagship, LG G3.
The update first leaked on Twitter by @utoprime with a download link for the full KDZ firmware file of the LG G3 Marshmallow update with the software version 30B.
The update is coming in the international variants of LG G3 (D855) first. If you haven’t received it yet, you can manually install it using either the full stock KDZ firmware or getting the custom recovery flashable ROM files provided by autoprime.
As for the root access, thanks to Chainfire’s system-less root with auto boot patcher, it’s now effortless to get root on most Marshmallow firmwares from most of the manufacturers. And the LG G3 Marshmallow firmware is definitely one of them.
You can root a LG G3 Marshmallow 30B version by simply flashing the latest SuperSU v2.76 beta zip file through TWRP recovery. The flashing process will automatically patch the boot to allow system-less root and it will install the root binaries without modifying the system's parts.
Get the SuperSU v2.76 file from the download link below and follow the instructions to root the G3 Marshmallow firmware.
How to Root a G3 Marshmallow Firmware
Note: Make sure that you have a custom recovery (preferably TWRP) installed on your LG G3.
- Download and transfer the SuperSU v2.76 beta zip to your LG G3.
- Boot your G3 into TWRP recovery.
- Select Install and flash the SuperSU v2.76 zip file that you transferred, from Step 1.
- Once flashing is done, reboot your G3.
That’s all. Your LG G3 should already be rooted now, running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. To verify the root access, you can download and install any root checker app from the Play Store.
