[UPDATE]
Finally: the Bootloader unlock exploit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2245836 (every version)
1. Download and extract this attached zip-file for easy unlocking, if you are on 20a: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...64&postcount=1
2. activate USB debugging, connect phone to usb, doubleclick BL_unlock_edited.bat, wait and only press "enter" until everything is done.
3. boot phone, dial 3845#*880# -> check bootloader unlock
CONFIRMED WORKING!

and thanks for the effort everyone!
(if you are stuck on the fastboot-step, you probably need to install the fastboot drivers. instructions for that are at the bottom of this post)

Old post:
Well, at the moment it seems like only phones with the 20a firmware version EUR-XXX are able to get their bootloader unlocked.
The problem: Some phones won't flash to EUR-XXX, it _seems_ IMEI (or provider/carrier) dependent, to which firmware your phone flashs.

Until now (March, 20th, 2013) there are serveral confirmed unlockings of a model from the "unlockable" list by people living in unlockable countries/using unlockable carriers, but this can be IMEI related, too.

[UNLOCKABLE LIST]
So far:
unlockable: (Model taken from URL+IMEI output, see 1.)
ANEUWH
ATHABK
APOLBK
ACWTBK
ACWTWH
ASTLWH
ASWSBK
ABALBK
AGRCBK
AAREBK
ASEABK
ASEAWH
AITABK
AHKGBK
AFRABK
ANLDBK
ATCIBK
APRTWH
AHKGBK
6BRABK
ATURBK

not unlockable::
ADEUWH (flashes to 262-000) (some people with ADEUBK on german carriers o2 and telekom were able to unlock, but maybe IMEI related)
ADEUBK (flashes to 262-000)
AHUNBK (flashes to 218-05) (one confirmed unlock of a phone to EUR-XXX registered in Croatia)
AGBRBK (flashes to 234-000)
ASWSWH (flashes to 232-10) (one confirmed unlocking by LGaljo, who lives in slovenia)
AHASBK (flashes to 232-10)
ATMDBK (flashes to 262-01)
ACLPBK (flashes to 233-00)
6VIVBK (flashes to 724-06)
APRTBK (flashes to 268-01)


[PLEASE POST YOUR INFO]
To confirm this and to gather info for the developers, please post this data about your phones:

1. Firmware version before flash:
2. Firmware version after flash:
3. unlocked:
4. Label:
5. Carrier:

you get the info to 1: go to URL http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b...heck2.jsp?esn=IMEI, klick on the link (copy&paste will not work because "..."), append your IMEI after the =. Firmware version is the string after "LGP880"
you get the info to 2: system settings -> phone info -> software information -> software version
you get the info to 3: dial 3845#*880# -> check bootloader unlock
you get the info to 4: Its printed at the back of your phone's box
you get the info to 5: your mobile service provider's name and country. something like orange, telekom, vodafone, etc.

I'll start with


1. ADEUWH
2. 262-000
3. no
4. DEU WHITE WHITE
5. Simyo/germany



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
[UPDATE] LG said, the official firmware (in this case for 262-000) will be unlockable: click
In another mail LG support mentioned that unlocking is IMEI dependent: click

[LG SECURITY: denied]
If you get "security error: denied" after adb reboot-bootloader, you have to install fastboot drivers when your phone has rebooted and the LG logo is showing.
you should see a device "fastboot" with a yellow triangle in windows' hardware manager, this triangle needs a fix.
How-To for fastboot drivers is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=32
fastboot drivers are attached to this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=17
BEWARE: MANY PEOPLE DO IT WRONG!
-> You have to install the drivers with the option "search on my computer for drivers", if you dont do this, the old (not working) drivers will be installed over and over again!
