    With my LG Tribute, when I couldn't get past the LG screen, I traded e-mails with LG, but they would never even tell me what a repair would cost.

    I just re rooted my Boost Mobile LG Tribute 2. I used king root before and worked but after re reading a bunch of threads on the net it looks like you would be stuck with the Chinese SU which sucks balls. Also since my last root on the phone it was an VZ3 and now is on VZ4 so old method no longer working. So this is how i did it. I used steps 1-5 on here http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/guide-root-method-lg-devices-t3049772. Power phone into download mode then follow the steps on here http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g-stylo/how-to/guide-how-to-root-lgls770-5-1-1-t3184649. Phone might not reboot so pull battery out. It will ask you to update SU binary go ahead and do so and you should be all set.

    I have tried EVERY suggestion on this site to root my tribute2 (boost). None of them have worked. The ph still works fine just not rooted.
    Surely there is a way to root this dang phone.
