Ok,so i installed xda app on my phone and it said i have an lg g8,when in fact its the stylo 4 plus through boost.my question is how different are the devices in hardware and how can i root the dang thing.i really can't even find a reliable vid on unlocking the bootloader.it came pre installed with oreo,but as with nonflagship phones,getting an os update is hard to come by.i really want to clear the bloatware,and possibly install a custom Rom.any help would be appreciated,thanks in advance

From this thread, it seems that the bootloader on the stylo 4 can't be unlocked, which makes it impossible to root. So I guess it is the same for the stylo 4+.

You can use the LG Package Disabler found in the play store to rid yourself off unwanted pre installed apps
