I'm reading a lot about LG's flash tool in g2 and g3 forums, Most zip files such as gapps or flashing a newer radio could be installed thru recovery or adb followed by a reboot on my nexus 5.
For those of you that have G2 T-Mobile devices or a G3 of any region is it as easy as a nexus device to root/install/unlock bootloader or is it more complex? I'm considering getting one in the coming weeks.
rooting is simple, but everything else is a big question mark; on my TMO LG flex, the bootloader is locked down tight, and we have nothing for our phone. It took almost 6 months to get root, which already works on the G3...If things will be any different on the G3 still remains to be seen...
