LG has been one of the odd souls out of the “let’s give depeer access to developers” party, but that looks to be changing soon. The company’s developer website has been updated with instructions for officially unlocking the LG G4’s bootloader.
There’s a catch here, naturally. It’s only possible to do this for one model of the LG G4, which is the European H815 variant. LG’s site says select “devices” will gain that ability eventually so you can bet there will be more.
We’re not sure if this courtesy will ever be extended to the likes of the LG G2, LG G3 or any of LG’s other models, but we’ll be looking to find out. In the meantime, if you’re the lucky owner of the necessary variant and have been waiting for an official bootloader unlock then LG has everything you need right here (note that it’s liable to void your warranty and that it’s a process which can’t be undone).
