Yesterday I showed you here to manually update your Verizon LG G2 to the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat firmware. And that’s not the end of the tutorial, because of the root guide is now available for the phone.

IOroot the root for "rooting beginners" and those who want to keep as close to stock as possible. IOroot is meant to be used in combination with stock Samsung firmwares, and be the quickest and easiest way for your first root.

All things you will need:

1. On a mac how do I check that adb is installed and how do i check and/or make sure adb has the proper permissions?
2. On a mac what does this mean “Mac: cd into /IOroot/mac folder -> chmod +x root.sh -> ./root.sh” ? Do I type this in somewhere? Is this instruction to put a cd into the mac? what is this?
3. Also if you go to the LG website there is only a download available for drivers for windows

After step 5 I had to install supersu from the app store. Root checker would then see that I had root.
