Why does this thread exist?
So I have, for the past 37 days, sent an email every 2 days to XDA to please give us a stylo 4 / q stylus / q stylo sub forum.
I have yet gotten a response back, and we still do not have a sub forum.

Right, so here we are in the stylo 3 plus sub forum. For now...

What is this thread about?
I wanted a place for all of the internet to discuss development for the stylo 4 / q stylus / q stylo.
I also wanted to clear the air on all the different stylo 4 / q stylus / q stylo that exist. And which one is right for you to purchase BASED solely on what each different phone offers.

What this thread is not for you
-Please do not ask questions for owners of the phone about what it's like owning it.
-Please do not post about how you wish the bootloader will be unlocked soon.
-Please do not post about other devices outside of the stylo 4 / q stylus / q stylo.
-Please do not ask which phone you should buy.

So what are the differences between the devices?
Stylo 4 & 4+ aka 4 plus = for United States (so far). At no point have I found ANYTHING, as of 8/7/18 on the internet that a stylo 4+ or stylo 4 plus exist as an actual name. I have only found speculation that the name exists...
Q Stylus, Q stylus+, & Q alpha = unsure. I only know of the Q stylus+ and that one is for Hong Kong. But the names exist from LG's mouth.
Q Stylo+ = Canada.

-United States Q710AL Boost 32GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.5 octa-core
-United States Q710ULM Unlocked 32GB / 3 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core
-United States Q710MS MetroPCS 32GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core
-United States Q710TS T-mobile 32GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core
-United States Q710AL Sprint 32GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.5 octa-core
-United States Q710ULM Amazon 32GB / 3 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core
-United States Q710AL Virgin 32GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.5 octa-core
-United States Q710CS Cricket 32GB / 3 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core
-United States Q710US Xfinity 16GB / 2 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core

-Canada LMQ710WA 32GB / 3 GB RAM / 1.8 octa-core ~IP68, Mil-Spec, & 16mp camera~

-Hong Kong LMQ710YBW 64GB / 4 GB RAM / 1.5 octa-core ~IP68, Mil-Spec, 16mp rear cam, 8mp front, dual-sim & available in 3 different colors~

What I sepculate
-I speculate that the Hong Kong version won't work on United States LTE.
-I don't think ANY of the United States phones will ever get bootloader unlocked.
-I think the Canada phone may work here in the united states on any GSM carrier and support LTE bands. I have not been able to find any info on WHAT bands the phone comes with from the LG canada website.
-I think that all the United States phones are also IP68 certified. I see no difference in build quality between them and the other phones outside the United States. I have also showered with my stylo 4 I bought from MetroPCS many times and no issues.
-I think the Canada phone will get bootloader unlocked soon.
-I think some phones have fm radio and others don't. I didn't really take the time to check that. Maybe they all do?

^^Side note^^ Venting here. I am confident there is someone at LG HQ that makes these names up on purpose to keep his/her job "important". In typical LG fashion, they can't just make one awesome phone with a stylus for all markets. For those of you in the USA, I believe the phone to buy will be the Canada version IF & ONLY IF I can find the bands the phone comes with to see which carriers it will be compatible with.

If anyone knows a mod or admin, do you mind having them move this thread to https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/help please?
I just realized we don't have a stylo 3 plus sub forum either.

Great info, thanks. You can find the bands and other info for the Canadian version at
https://www.freedommobile.ca/plans-a...ils/lg-q-stylo
(edit: at least the bands for the phone available at Freedom, not sure if all are the same)
What makes you think that the Canadian version will get bootloader unlocking?

Thank you for the link with bands.
I believe it will get it because it is the "+" variant.
Stylo 3 still doesn't have bootloader unlocked.
But the Stylo 3 plus does (I own one)

Let's cross our fingers they all get it 😊

Does anybody know if it's possible to flash a T-Mobile
q710ts Stylo 4 .kdz onto an unlocked MetroPCS q710ms Stylo 4 using LGUP or LG Flashtool? If so, does anyone have a T-Mobile .kdz file or know where I can get one? I've been doing extensive Googling, but I can't find any info on it, so I created an account here. Thanks!!

Very unlikely the kdz file is out yet. As I recall, the kdz file for the Stylo 3 didn't hit until the first (or maybe 2nd)update.

It'll be awhile, I'm sure

I found it on lg-firmwares.com. Now only if I could find the .dll so I could flash it with LGUP.

What makes you think that the Canadian version will get bootloader unlocking?



I'm a green eared LM-Q710CS owner, with service through Cricket Wireless(obviously mirroring over the AT&T network). My phone was bought outright as an upgrade from a LG Treasure (only could afford free for my first cell phone as a free man). I regestetered for every single LG membership I found during my time on my worthless Treasure. It's been just over a month since my purchase and while I'm happy with the value of the phone I bought at such an affoardable cost, I find myself wanting to squeeze this bad boy for all its worth(my insurance covers any and all damages to the phone for a $78 deductible regardless of cause).

As I browsed through my developer option menu for the first time I noticed the slide selector to activate OEM unlock near the top of the menu. I'm quite behind the times due to my local district courts appointed jury decided I should go to prison for pulling a knife in order to disarm a young man whom had just threatened to shoot me at point blank range(Since you have to deal with my most likely worn out question, I figured I'd let you laugh at why I don't know the answer).

I haven't seen any mention on any of our phones threads or forums referring to this unlock, but isn't this setting some sort of option that allows you to access the Bootlader through a fast boot access menu? The last time I touched a super user permission everyone wanted a piece of that Kit Kat code.

I've looked online all day for two days now and have not found a reliable source I would trust to lead me through the new process, since I havent seen any root access guides in our community. If any one can help me out here, or even if something about this unlock option interests you be sure to let me know. I'm willing to assist in any way towards device improvement in any way I can. Just let me know if there's any thing I can do to assist you in return.
