https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2396819 would this work?

Well, there is no Android Pie in the works for the Stylo 4 for at least 5 weeks, possibly ever.
This page will show a firmware Version 20x about 5 weeks before it is released.
This is how I knew Oreo was coming out for the Aristo 2 5 weeks before it was actually released.
Latest firmware I see for the Stylo 4 is 10k currently

The utility you linked to was just a fastboot replacement that automated the commands. The bootloader will still refuse to flash partitions, whether it's fastboot asking or this utility.

LG Stylo 4 unlock
Obtaining unlock code for LG-Q710AL
Method 1===100% working===patience needed=
Call Boost Mobile (or original carrier)

(First ask to transfer to the unlock department)
Using a call recorder here is word for word what was said between the operator and I:
Me: "look I've had service to this phone for a while now and last night updated my phone, and now when ever I try to use my phone it asks for a service code. In the past 3 & 1/2 hours ive had to reset my network settings, reset my app preferences, dial ##72786# twenty million times and had to factory reset by going to settings> system> restart and reset> factory data reset. And most recently before the call dropped I was on the phone with you people since my plane is leaving in 25 minutes I was being walked through "some complicated adn dangerous looking reset" where I had to turn off my phone hold the volume down plug in my charger while simultaneously holding down the power button. Then after more confusing steps and setting up my phone yet again even though my plane is fixing to leave shortly and this damn thing wont regester the service card, IT STILL DIDNT WORK!! So the lady I was speaking with asked me for information like the IMEID number to my phone saying she was fixing to privide me some **** like an MSL code for my phone and as she was telling my to power on my device I had my call dropped and I had to go through security here at the airport. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME! My plane is boarding in 20 in minutes! If I dont get this fixed shortly im going to be screwed when I land and can't notify my family I've arrived in time for the funeral."
Operator: Sure thing, but first may I please have your phone number and account pin?
Me: "901-###-#### and the pin is ####"
Operator "Ok great, now can you please provide me with your devices IMEID number by going to your settings and tapping about phone or by opening your dialer and typing *#06#?"
Me "yeah hold up. Ok my IMEID is ************** "
Operator: "Ok thank you, now will you please restart your phone and tell me what pops up?"
Me: *lying* "yep." (checks email) "Are you still there?"
Operator: "yes sir."
(Note: Be ready to write down the service code) Me: *still lying* "Ok there is a pop-up that says service code and gives me the option to type below that it says ok and cancle."
Operator: "ok sir, now I want you to click in the area where it lets you type the service code and type 6-6-6-2-6-3 and press ok then let me know what it does then."
Me: *already in ##3282# editing apn* "It is regestering on the service. Now it says regestration complete, your device is now configured for service".
Operator: "ok is that all?"
Me: "yes thank you so much"
END OF CALL

Method 2: for success patience and time needed
1st) Install es file explorrer
2nd) Hold power button till you see the power menu (make sure debug button is enabled.)
3rd) tap and hold the power button till the safe mode option appears and turn on safe mode
4th) Once in safe mode run a bug report then open dialer and type ##33284# and type 123456 so it says incorrect code then type 000000 but dont press enter. Just wait for the bugreport to finish.
Hint: If your device restarts after typing 000000 re-enter safe mode and start with the code 123456 and press enter then wait till report finishes and tap save to ES then save anywhere on your SD card if available if not save in downloads folder. Then repeat these steps but type 000000 instaed of 123456.
5th) reboot normally and search bugreport for your six digit service code/unlock code.
=============!!!IMPORTANT!!!============= YOU MUST SAY FUNERAL WHEN TALKING TO CUSTOMER SUPPORT! IT IS A LOOPHOLE IN ALMOST EVERY CARRIERS POLICY! SAYING FUNERAL TO TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS LIKE THE FBI FLASHING THIER BADGE TO A SECURITY GUARD!
======================================[I MIGHT HAVE UNLOCKED THE BOOTLOADER]
I also think I found out how to unlock the bootloader by enabling wifi debugging via chrome then after doing so on Firefox Beta for Developers too, I continued using Firefox Beta for Developers and added a crosh shell addon and extention. If this worked I will create a thread explaining step by step how to: unlock the bootloader, root your LG Stylo 4, multiple ways to obtain your msl code aka service code, list of working and personally tested dial codes and possibly a few custom roms and instalation tutorials.

The 4 isn't getting Pie? Are you serious? The 3 didn't Oreo and now the 4 isn't getting Pie? That's ridiculous on LG's part.

It certainly could get PIe, but it won't be soon.
Like I said, the Oreo firmware for the Arista 2 showed up on this site 5 weeks before the firmware dropped.

Maybe it's just me, but I prefer to live in the real world.
and in the real world, there has yet to be a plausible report with any proof of anyone actually rooting a Stylo 4.

There was some security update today however it didnt change the android version so unexpected updates roll out?
There has to be a way to exploit something or a backdoor to root this phone! One of the best devices I have ever owned that I can't fully customize the way I want

Has anyone tried something like this? http://www.unlockphonetool.com/unloc...ode-generator/

I seriously doubt that there could ever be a bootloader unlocking software or service that uses the same method on ALL devices because of how much difference there is between android devices and how each of their bootloaders function based on how they are built/coded.

I suspect that software might be a scam of some kind, or at least it probably can't do the things it says. More than likely, it is fake, I didn't see anywhere to download the software. I would be willing to wager that the page you linked is just bait to direct you to some kind of survey that never leads to the actual download, basically, a scam for someone to make money from ads.

What @Droidriven said !!
A bootloader unlock code generator supporting a half dozen different manufacturers ??
About as likely as being struck by lightning at the epicenter of a 9.0 earthquake in the eye of a cat 5 hurricane
