NOTE : This method is applicable to LG Tribute 5 LS675 as well
In the recent years, Kingroot has gained immense popularity being only root solution for many android phones. It’s a Chinese app and it installs its own superuser app called Kinguser instead of SuperSU
Kingroot does the job of rooting your LG Tribute 2 but it’s not as reliable as SuperSu. There are several reports of bricking and force close errors, after bloatware removal. Moreover, if you want to install Xposed framework in LG Tribute 2 SuperSU is a must have. You may be aware that there is no custom recovery for LG Tribute 2 as of now. So, the only way to flash Xposed framework is via FlashFire. Now, Flashfire detects root access only if SuperSu is installed. So all in all, in order to flash Xposed & to prevent your phone from bricking you must get rid of Kingroot.
Thanks to W0lfdroid for this easy method for LG Tribute 2, LG Tribute 5 and many other android smartphones.
