Jcase and Team Root the Sprint LG G3 with Stump Root

The LG G3 is a flagship among flagships. In terms of raw hardware specifications, the G3 is undoubtedly one of the best devices available at the moment. We recently took a closer look at the G3 and liked what we saw. We’re not alone either, as many users and developers have also plunked down the cash for a variant of their own. As such, it’s no surprise to see that despite the device’s young age, several LG G3 variants have already been rooted.

Unfortunately, not every device variant has received the root treatment. The Sprint variant of the G3 is prime example of this, as up until today, its users haven’t been able to enjoy all of the root-only goods that our little community is known for. Luckily, this is all in the past, as Team Codefire has managed to root the LG G3 and all of its variants–and possibly other LG devices in the process.

Stump Root comes from the collective work of various talented developers including XDA Senior Member thecubed who discovered the vulnerability, Senior Recognized Developer jcase who created the exploit, Recognized Developer autoprime who helped in development, and Recognized Developer PlayfulGod who coded the UI. The root method should be compatible with all variants of the LG G3 (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile are explicitely mentioned), and it may even work on other LG devices.

If you’ve got an LG G3 variant and you’ve been longing for root, head over to the official Stump Root thread and get started.
