LG G4 back buttons

To say that diehard Android enthusiasts are serious about rooting their devices would be an understatement. Just take a look at LG G4 owners on XDA who together have raised more than $2,000 to anyone who can root the Verizon or AT&T variants of the device (easier said than done).

There’s actually 2 bounties, one that includes finding a bootloader unlock method, along with root and a custom recovery and another for just root/recovery. Step-by-step instructions on how others can do it will need to be provided, along with screenshots and all that jazz.

Keep in mind that in order to collect the bounty, the man or woman responsible will need to private message all of those who’ve pledged money for root via the thread on XDA (that’s around 50 members). No easy task, mind you. If you’re feeling up to the task, head over to the thread on XDA for more info.
