On this thread someone mentioned a bootloader unlock method originating from the Russian forum 4pda.ru. From my understanding it's basically a modified U-boot and X-loader.This method has so far been ported to the Optimus Black. Thread Here. All we need now is for someone to give our U-boot and X-loader the same modifications as the modified L7 ones has and it should work with no problem. As a matter of fact this should work with any Optimus that uses U-boot.

We need the original L7 U-boot and X-loader. Can anyone with the phone gives us a dump of them?

good intentions. but....

L7 and L9 have diferent CPU. L7 is a Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon and the L9 is a TextasInstruments OMAP4433,

L7 does not implement a u-loader and a x-loader , it implement an unencripted aboot loader, besides L9 have encripted x and u loaders.

The boot.img and the recovery.img of the L7 can be "patched" to bypass the bootloader because the aboot is un-encripted, for this reason this can be done with loki tool but L9 is very very difficult, i mean near of impossible to patch because the algorith of encritation have a very large and very very secret key (CertPK), only knowed for LG.
