  1. Sumit,
    Thanks very much for your well written article. I feel like I’m so close to making this work, I can taste it! :)
    My problem though is that my LG V0 H900 is an evaluation model. That being said, LGUP shows it as an
    “Unknown Model” and is unable to proceed. Any suggestions or workarounds to this issue?

    Thank you,

    Silver

    • Hi Silver, I’m glad you like this post..
      Try this..First Uninstall lg uptool and lg drivers then re-install lg drivers and then install lg uptool dll file first and then uptool file. It may work this way.

  2. Has anyone found any drawbacks to this Root.I read somewhere that messaging stopped working. Is it reversible. do all the phones functions still work?

        • i would also love an eta, i just upgraded on cricket from a note 3 to an lg v10. and in doing so lost my foxfi. i need to root the new phone to take advantage of this good unlimited data on cricket

    I tried to root the H900 but it wouldnt let me use the rootedsystemvs.tot file. The H900 comes with a rootedsystemh900.tot file. Any ideas on what to do? Thanks

  4. This works perfectly. Just follow the instructions. I actually rooted then had to redo this explot ( uninstalled a system app LG needed, I use cyanogemod on other phone) worked perfect. on VS990. I still need a custom recovery system and a way to access boatloader. Thanks.

  5. Got the error:

    tot anti rollback version is smaller than device version

    When using LGUP to install the TOT file. Not sure what to do next. This is for the H900

    • What’s your Android Version? It only works on Android Lollipop, not on Marshmallow.

  6. Michael Sparks Reply

    Would somebody PLEASE come up with a root for Marshmallow?! GEEZ!!

  7. I can’t find the rootedsystemvs.tot file when I’m browsing in the LGUP tool. Any idea where it may be?

    • Only worked on my windows 8, not 7, had to download a rar file opener as well.

  8. Can anybody tell me how to fix this and why is it happening…

    ERROR: ERROR CODE=0X2000,
    TOT antirollback version is
    smaller than device version.

  9. I tried to root my V10 H900 but got error “Error; Error code = 0x2000, TOT amtirollback version is smaller than device version.” Does anyone know what it means?

  10. Hello, first thanks for write this post, I’d followed all steps and was successful, but when i try to check the root access whit the app “Root Checker” it say that the phone hasn’t root access, so i don’t kwow what’s wrong, any idea? I have Android 5.1.1

    Sorry for my ban english :D

  11. Hello, I have a LG V10 H900 with android 6 factory, can I have root with this method? And what version of android is the tot to install? Ah and then I can install the updates with the LGUP without losing the root? I hope you can resolve my doubts. Thanks in advance

  12. So everyone we all realized that we cannot root marshmallow 6.0 . guess we have to rollback to older version. any way of doing this?
