One of the developers on the XDA Forum recently tried to contact the folks at LG to know about a Bootloader unlock solution.
Recently, the manufacturer replied to the user, mentioning that it’s preparing a server for a safer bootloader unlock process.
Unlocking bootloader give users the ability to root their device, and tinker with their device the way they want, customize it, and more which the manufacturers normally don’t want you to do. LG’s email mention that the company is trying to device a safe method, and it may take some time due to technical restrictions and policies of the mobile carriers, who on the first hand don’t want you to get advance access to your device.
Thank you for your feedback regarding bootloader unlock and
we are sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment that have been caused by lack of support for bootloader unlock on the latest LG smartphones.
We are already aware of many developers’ requests and opinions on bootloader unlock.
So we have been preparing a server to provide safer bootloader unlock.
Also, we are internally discussing the target model and the time of providing bootloader unlock.
However, it will take some more time due to the technical restrictions, security issues, and the policy of mobile carriers.
We deeply apologize that we are unable to support bootloader unlock right now and would like to ask for your kind understanding.
We will let you know more specific information when the support policy for bootloader unlock is decided.
We’ll update you as soon as LG reveals more information about bootloader unlocking.
