Hi all,
I'm contacting AT&T and LG Mobile to force them to release the KDZ and TOT for our LG G5.
I had thought about starting a petition for it, what do you guys think about it?
Anyone had luck with getting some answeres that might end up with AT&T releasing these files?

BTW, I used to own a Motorola Milestone in the past, and some forum member succeeded on cracking Motorola's bootloader, maybe he will help us here as well (I had PM him about this topic, let's hope he will give it a shot).

Thanks,
Mor

16.4.17 - petition link had been added : https://www.change.org/p/lg-electron...edium=copylink

Please, help us spread the word, it's a petition for all LG G5 devices, not only AT&T's one.
Meanwhile, I'm trying my luck reaching out for more assistance within AT&T and LG focal points.

Kinda good news.
Yesterday I spoke with "oneclickroot" support team and tried figuring out if they will try to assist with rooting our LG G5.
The dev support APPROVED that they are working on it and it will take some time (crappy AT&T and Nougat's security).

About the petition, before I'm opening one, anyone else got some other ideas?

Thanks,
Mor

Yes, kidnap senior AT&T exec and hold them for ransom. I'll bet we'd have root within 24 hours.

Well, I had draft the initial petition design.
I need your help dear community to sharpen it.

Last year, the LG G5 was released to the market.
Tons of new features, top notch SOC and the first flagship that offered HW modification.
All the community of developers and end users was happy and excited to create ROMs, kernels etc.
But, unfortunately, LG with cooperation with the massive Carriers agreed to lock the bootloader​.*
A year later, only two variets received the unlocked bootloader and all the rest left behind with a dying LG G5 community.
Our demend is that LG will unlock the bootloader and provide a TOT tool. Let us be free of the locked garden chain!

Let me know what do you think about it.
