So the LG Stylo 4 is a beautiful budget smartphone and i cant find any information on it here at xda so i figured i would start a thread for people to go to and discuss getting root on this device. Anyone with any experience or if anyone thinks the root process for another lg phone might work with this phone and is willing to test out and report back let us all know.

I got one from MetroPCS, LMQ710MS,
it's locked, have to request a code from LG to unlock,
unfortunately, this device is not supported by LG to get a unlock code...

Unfortunately, All models of the stylo 4 in the U.S are bootloader locked and un rootable.
First tme in the stylo series history I wanted to return my stylo 4.
I elected to get the K20 Plus..
Great devs working on the K20 plus.
Im loving the Resurrection Remix Custom Rom.

Just got this phone from Xfinity. I have "OEM Unlocking" enabled??? Is this a dummy OEM?
Haven't tried anything yet.

Root x Recovery
Stylo 4

There is article that a quick Google search will turn up that claims to have step by step instructions including unlocking the bootloader of the Stylo 4 which is supposedly done with a .bin file emailed by LG after submitting IMEI number of the phone. But have yet to see any confirmations of this.

Have any if you guys tried kingroot? I'm thinking of upgrading my stylo2 plus but I'm not going to if root hasn't been acquired. I used Kingroot about 7 times and got root on the first day of getting my Stylo2. Maybe it'll work on the 4?
