After trying everything on this page - https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/21804747-patcher-problems AND reinstalling, I found the solution a bit differently, but I guess in a similar way.

I clicked on "lol.launcher.admin". The original file location should be C:\Riot Games\League of Legends. After clicking on it, the logo appeared, and as the people who have this problem now, the entire thing stopped responding.

So here is what I did.

1. Open Task Manager.
2. Click on "Processes"
3. Find "rads_user_kernel.exe".
4. Right-click on it and go to Properties.
5. Go to compatibility.
6. Set Privilege Level to "Run this program as an administrator".
7. "Apply" and leave the screen.

The patcher opened and started working right after I did this.
I hope this works for you as well.

You just might be a minor, lesser-known deity. Thanks! It saved me the trouble of spending a whole day reinstalling on my **** connection.

Hey, I solved the problem in a different way, when I tried to open the launcher (and it didnt open) I opened the task manager and closed everything related to LoL, then I restarted my computer and clicked the desktop icon, the logo showed up, but u must wait like 10-20 minutes until the launcher opens.
A friend of mine solved the problem this way.

This didn't work for me. After the patch I was playing yesterday no problem. I get off work today and I get the league of legends icon, and then nothing Rads would stay open for only 5 to 10 seconds. After reading your post I did what you said to do and I got to the play button, where I then did a repair. After repairing I clicked play annnnndddd nothing opened. /sigh.
