Question [Q] Bootloader issues

Hi!
I recently bought an AT&T Optimus G E970 (unlocked) and have rooted it using framaroot.

Now, when I try to unlock the bootloader using Freegee app from playstore, it FC's and phone reboots. the AT&T power-off animation is not present in my phone. When I try to boot into bootloader by pressing Vol. Up + Power key as given here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2001655 , the phone boots normally but not into bootloader.

Phone came with Jellybean 4.1.2. Last time when Freegee app finished downloading the .xml file, the phone got soft-bricked and I have to use LGNPST method to restore it using the stock firmware .tot file.

I'm not sure what is wrong with the phone. Is there any other method to unlock the bootloader offline?

I think this is what you need:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2230994

It still uses LGNPST, but it gives you an alternative to flashing the entire stock .tot.
Main: HTS One M8 stock rooted

Tried both of them. Got stuck at LG logo in the first one and then at Google logo in the second one.
Then I tried the .tot file afterwards and got out of the mess. Still unable to boot into bootloader using Vol Up + power.

Problem solved!!

1. Installed Busybox.
2. Reinstalled FreeGee
3. FreeGee downloaded the xml files and img files.
4. Installed CWM 6.0.4.7
5. Bootloader finally unlocked!


Now time to flash Paranoid Android
