I just have a quick question that I was hoping someone may be able to help me out with.
So, I was forced to switch to Metro PCS after my original phone was stolen, and I stupidly did not think to research about whether I could root the LG Stylo 4 prior to getting it. I have been a fan of the LG G series of phones for awhile so went ahead and got the LG Stylo 4 only to find out after the fact that LG has locked out the boot loader and is not allowing unlocks on it for the foreseeable future.
This really ticks me off, since this is my phone and I should be able to do what I want with it. I digress....

Anyways, of course I have tried everything just to get root, and that inlcudes KingoRoot, KingRoot, One Click Root etc....., I really dont care about installing a custom recovery or rom on the phone, I just want to have root access on it.

So, my question is, is it at all possible to flash a patched boot.img top the phone to unlock the bootloader? The reason I ask is after doing some research I came across a post that had a boot.img file that was patched from a Stylo 4 with an unlocked bootloader. I dont really know what can be done with boot.img file since as far as I know you need the unlock.bin file directly from LG to unlock it. I just wanted to see if anyone could clarify for me.

I doubt there is, but is there any way at all to get root on this phone without the bootloader being unlocked?

BTW- Here is the post where I found the flashed boot.img, I know its for Sprint but would it matter if my phone is carrier unlocked already?
