A new SuperSU build from Chainfire is here, taking it to version 2.56 which will root the LG V10. The developer has some plans to build SuperSU without tampering with the OTA updates. That means you can root your device and still receive the OTA updates from Google for Nexus devices or from some manufacturers for non-Nexus devices.
You may find such releases for Nexus devices available on Marshmallow firmware. However, it requires a boot image to be flashed over the system. With more releases, mere SuperSU shall root the device and you may still avail OTA updates.
Here is a simple tutorial that will root your LG V10 in no time. Before you proceed make sure you have TWRP installed on your device. Through this custom recovery, you will need to flash the SuperSU file. Also, make sure whether a boot or kernel image is available for your variant that needs to be flashed before the SuperSU package. So let’s begin with the tutorial.
