    Im trying to root t mobile lg g stylo 6.0, i am so new to this stuff im super lost.
    I have downloaded Supersu (No idea what to do with file or where to put it do i unzip it???)(also i tried putting zipped and unzipped file in my android sd card directory and it made no difference)
    I have downloaded adb and fastboot (Already installed)

    Okay, first make sure you understand you risk bricking your device.

    Once you are okay with that start over again by reviewing the root tmobile mm thread.

    I would suggest downloading all needed files into a single folder. Name it whatever you like.

    The SU zip file needs to go (unzipped) to external SD card on your stylo.

    Following the root instructions, when you use cmd go to the folder you created (example cd newfolder) this should contain all files downloaded. You should be able to follow steps and see adb and fastboot responses from this point.

    Good luck

    If adb devices is coming up blank then you most likely don't have the drivers installed, or installed properly.

    If you open up device manager in Windows, does it list your phone under Android devices?

    Try reinstalling the drivers http://www.mylgphones.com/lg-android-usb-device-drivers
