The benefits of this procedure

We used JDQ39B as today’s Build ID. Thankfully, this app lets you use many Build IDs. The tablet has this kind of CPU: a quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300. The speed it delivers will become so much better than usual. A rooted device can sport new features and battery enhancement tweaks. You will have multiple customization tweaks, too. Moreover, admin and superuser permission will also land on your tablet.

After the rooting is finished, your gadget won’t have bloatware. Apart from that, no security issues will threaten it. This application is also a great unrooting tool. Last but not least: it’s powered by an SRS Server and it comes free of charge.

Consider this if you want an update afterwards: root access shall be revoked. The disadvantages don’t end here. Your tablet won’t have its system partition after you’re done with the upgrade. The rooting of your LG G Pad 8.3 V500 will revoke its warranty. Good news, though: you can have this restored.
