LG recently announced its new flagship device, the LG G2. Powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor, the device runs on Android 4.2.2 and continues with the latest trend among high end smartphones of not having an external memory card slot. The phone will provide tough competition to the Moto X smartphone that was launched by Motorola even though the G2 is expected to be priced higher. We have already seen what is rooting and the purpose behind it. This article will now explain how you can Root your LG G2.
