Or, Follow steps:
  1. Ensure you have the proper USB drivers installed, and your phone is in the proper mode (For Verizon, use Ethernet mode on the PC settings menu)
  2. Enable Developer Mode on your phone and enable USB Debugging
  3. Extract this zip file somewhere on your PC
  4. Run root.bat
  5. The phone will ask you to disconnect USB, disable USB debugging, then re-enable it and plug the phone back in, do so when prompted
  6. You will then be asked if you would like to have a superuser package installed, which you can accept or decline
Why is the 'trip rootchecker'?
LG's phones come with some software loaded that detects the presence of root on a phone, and invalidates your warranty.
Rooting the phone, by nature, voids your warranty. You can put your phone in a special mode where ADB shell has root permissions, however your phone is not technically 'rooted' by app standards.

You will not be able to use 'root required' apps on your phone if you do not let the root script install Superuser.
Ask for help if there's a problem.
