I find LG Tribute 5 LS675 from Boost Mobile as one the best value for money offerings , but the high priced monthly plans of Boost are a big turn off. When I bought LG Tribute 5 from Boost Mobile, I was clear that I’ll unlock and use

Bypassing activation screen is quite a simple process. Insert battery, turn on the phone and follow this easy step by step process.

LG Tribute 2 – Replace Kingroot with SuperSU

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.
