    daddy366 and I can confirm this! :D

    EDIT:
    To get SuperSU to cooperate, I had to remount the /system

    First, I set SELinux to permissive (makes life easier)
    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    su
    setenforce permissive

    From there, I remounted the system:
    Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system

    This can either be done via terminal emulator or adb.

    After those commands are run, open SuperSU and update the binary.

    I tried this and install super user. I even verified that my phone was rooted using root checker and It showed that it was rooted. When I reboot the phone it lost the root and was not able to root again.

    Just bought one of these to give it a go. I will still have my Centura sitting on the side waiting for the gb rom to be finished.

    Thanks for the info, I wouldn't have purchased the phone if not for this post.

    I lost root myself. To get it back I uninstalled Superuser reinstalled the root app & ran it. I then ran SuperSU & after a restart I again had root. This isn't uncommon to LG. They can be a real pain in the butt.

    Thanks toxinburn, I used towelroot with the instructions you laid out and have been lucky I guess. I did this just after your post and haven't had any problems. I just can't wait for someone to figure out how to get a recovery that works That way I can do a backup.

    I had a little hiccup with it also...but it worked out, i had to remount the system to rw so that supersu could install the binaries....then it worked. motorhead knows the command for that.

    Which terminal program did you use?

    I picked up one on Black Friday that was manufactured just last month. The white decal under battery says "MADE IN CHINA (10/2014)" and towelroot worked just fine for me. Make sure you followed the steps carefully, minding to keep spaces between the numbers intact too when editing in step #4.

    Anything involving djrbliss presentation at Blackhat? He used IDA software ($1200), so I didn't know if another software would do the job.
