LG G4 was already out in the streets and rocking the market with cutting-edge specs and beautiful design which is soon believed to dethrone the Galaxy S6 if the conditions are as expected. Meanwhile, the much older LG G2 is still attracting a humble support from the developers which is keeping many G2 users satisfied with their device.
The Android Lollipop has been rolled out to the LG G2 a few months ago which is a moment of joy for the G2 users. However, the Lollipop update has raised issues with few of the popular rooting techniques but luckily there are some new methods to root the device. If you’re looking for a way to root LG G2 on Android Lollipop, you should take a look at the simple one-click root tool for LG devices which we’ve covered earlier.
Rooting allows your device to run some awesome apps like the Xposed framework which has unlimited application in terms of customizability. However, to make things more flexible and interesting, you’ll need a custom recovery to flash custom ROMs, kernels and other flashable zips which will add more functionality to your device and hopefully increase the performance to another level.
Luck for LG G2 users, bender_007 of XDA has developed a simple Auto rec app that will install TWRP on your device without the need for a PC. The app needs your device to be running on a rooted Lollipop firmware and everything else will be automatically done by the app. So, if you’re ready to install the TWRP on your device, grab the Auto rec app from below based on your device’s model number.
