LG G3 – Rooted Android (Lollipop) 5.0 (85520F) Update

An update – D85520F – has been released for the LG G3 (855) a few days ago.

This assumes that you already have a rooted ROM either 4.x or 5.x as well as have a custom recovery installed.

Proceed at your own risk –  I am not responsible for anything that may happen!

Requirements:

Note:

  • If you are on stock (4.4.2) and not rooted then you can follow my guide on how to achieve a rooted Android (Lollipop) 5.0.
  • If you are coming from a different ROM then you need to do a full wipe (data, system, cache) before continuing
  • If you are running a rooted 85520D version from my previous guide then you can continue

Step 1
Download the 85520F.zip and latest version of SuperSU from the links above and place them on your internal storage.

Step 2
Reboot in recovery either via ADB or Quick Boot (mentioned above) and perform a full nandroid backup.

Step 3
Install the 85520F.zip from the location you copied it earlier in local storage and don’t reboot just yet!

Step 4
Install SuperSU from the location you copied it earlier in local storage and don’t reboot just yet!

Step 4
Wipe cache and dalvik cache and reboot.

First boot will take a little longer but you should eventually see the applications upgrading notice.
