Rooting voids your phone warranty. Proceed only if you know what you’re about to do. It’s your discretion and liability. Tested fully working on current Marshmallow version 1.7. Themed for the Flash 2.
CAUTION (AVOID BOOT LOOP):
Once you select Swipe to Allow Modifications, it modifies your system partition. If you don't flash the root file after that, your phone will suffer boot loop. The original boot image checks if something was changed in the system and it keeps on looking for the original file. Hence, the endless waiting aka boot loop. So you must then flash the SU zip file in order to patch the boot image.
The SU file we'll be using for this guide allows you to do a 'systemless' root. If you want to install future updates for your phone while rooted, you should mount the system partition as read-only. Changing anything inside the system partition will cause you to fail to flash official OTA files.
Please do not mirror the link. This took me light years to compile and get running for the Flash 2.
Side note: I noticed that the previous TWRP posted here by @HungThinh has some errors. Been working on this one since I became a MM tester. Enjoy!
