LG G5 is yet another phone in the G series phones by LG and it’s the flagship phone of the year by the company. Last year’s G4 made many news due to the rocking features it boasted and this year’s G5 is no less.
The phone features a 5.3″ inch screen, Quad-core CPU, Adreno 530 GPU, and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on-board. On top of that you have the LG’s customized skin called LG Optimus UX 5.0 UI. The phone runs everything that is latest in the market and you don’t need to wait for anything to arrive for the phone as it does pack everything you want.
However, if you belong to that category of users who just can’t have enough of what they get, then you may try rooting your phone. By gaining root access on your LG G5, you’re allowing yourself to remove the stock apps from the phone, install a custom recovery (if one is available), flash a customized version of Android aka custom ROM, and do many more things that can’t be done on an unrooted phone.
T-Mobile and European variants of the LG G5 are the only variants that have been rooted so far, so if you’ve got one of these, you can have it rooted using one of the following sections that teaches how to root your specific variant of the phone.
If you have the European variant of the device, please follow the following three sections to unlock the bootloader, flash a custom recovery, and root the device.
In case you have the T-Mobile variant, follow the last section that is for rooting the T-Mobile variant of LG G5.
