    Some things I read say you can't root LG tribute 2016 and some say you can. Is there anyone who knows for sure

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    so the best source for all thongs root is over at xda developers forum

    if you see that your phone has a section in theo forum then that is a good start. if you look to see if there is a root subsection...then that is even better. if the subsection is active......then you are good to go. however, if there is not much activity or there is no root subforum then that usually means there is no dev community.

    just remember no devs=no fun

    so at xda....this is all that there is for your phone:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/lg-tribute-HD

    as you can see there is no root subforum.

    and if you see threads like this:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/help/lg-x-style-lg-tribute-hd-rooted-boost-t3485956

    then there is no root and looks like none of the devs have picked this phone to work on at the moment. i highly doubt that there ever will be a way to root the phone.

    now you might find claims of rooting your specific device, just be very careful. some of those sights can be shady and you might even brick the phone.

    going forward i would do some research first and look to phones that are easily rootable.....for example the pixel phones are very easy to root.

    I agree with you 100%, I hsve rooted many Samsung phones and flashed roms, custom kerenels, ported apps. do system and sysremless root and I will say from all my experience that you give sound advice. It good to see someone take the time to help another with honesty and integrity.

    Its cool bro, I like helping others if I can. im not the know it all of root. My experience is with Samsungs and I use Odin on pc to flash Cusume recovery (TWRP), however LGs use another method (I think it involves ADB).
    I will say that having an unlocked bootloader make it easier to gain root . Go to anout phone in settings and look for build # and tap it 5 to 7 times, then see if a popup (toast message) says developer options... if so , you will have a new setting within the settings called develop options. If that be the case you most likely have an unlocked bootloader but XDA is the best place to look for specifics for you phone. For instence, I search "XDA sprint note 4"

    If its android 5.0 it will usually root with kingroot or or kingoroot, if its 5.1 or higher those 1 click root apps will definitely not work, once android 5.1 came out they increased the security of their phones

    Honestly, that kinda good and bad news. Kingroot is more of a virus/root exploit packed with adds. There may be a way to downgrade it back to 5.0. It would be very time consuming with little chance of success. Sorry bro
