How to root LG G Flex 2, LG G3, G2, G Pro 2 on Android 5.0 Lollipop and KitKat

The LG, in a handful of variants across several countries around the globe.

Note #1: Rooting is essential for installing third-party root apps, custom ROMs and latest system tweaks on your LG. However, users are advised to beware that rooting voids hardware warranty of the device, as it triggers the flash counter whenever the stock firmware is modified or any third-party tool is installed.

Note #2: this guide is tested on 5.02 , and got my phone rooted using LG_One_Click_Root msi. ioroot did nothing, and Kingo Root failed, but that was before I got the 4.1.11 drivers from LG below.
