    Hello there!

    I'm not all that familiar with your device, but generally speaking YouTube videos are not a very good way to teach someone to root a phone.

    Most of the time, device manufacturers (such as LG) want to prevent root, because they see it as a security vulnerability. When new methods to root come out, they issue an update to the device to prevent that method from being used in the future. As a result, rooting a device becomes a cat and mouse game where developers are constantly trying to find new methods and device manufacturers are constantly trying to prevent it.

    Usually, the authors of the YouTube video do not take down the rooting methods that no longer work, and people end up following outdated directions.
