Someone in China make all G8, G8s, V50 rooted yesterday, without breaking the phone. Sorry for I don't know how it works.

The guy is the moderator of a forum in China, which is about LG phones since years ago. In the past he always help to unlock, root and make ROMs for LG phones, but now this guy count on this to make money and just sell phones he polished, refusing to tell how.

Anyway, I'm going to buy his phone now, G8 is quite a good phone, I really hope a guide to root can be made soon.

Please report back when/if you receive the phone.

Edit: And, could you link to the forum that this guy is at?

I can confirm this as I saw his moment about the rooted V50. Teardown is required to root V50 and he can change the RAM to 12G and the storage to 1TB, quite crazy!

His main purpose is to sell rooted and modified LG devices.

Root
hello, for a couple of days looking for the possibility to get root permissions but unfortunately I can't find solutions. I currently own a LG G8s ThinQ (LM-G810EAW). I find only previous root permissions to this smartphone. Thanks a lot for the collaboration

there is no possibility at the moment the bootloader is not yet released by LG

but we have good results with the G8S. In ADB mode there are some instructions what to do to unlock the bootloder

I don't really care much about the RAM or the storage. But how can you achieve root by messing with the phone internally?

Agreed. I'm not interested in root where I have to ship my phone off somewhere or buy phone from someone.

The mint (unrooted) V35 I have (but not using) is because someone on XDA offered to sell me theirs -- so they could buy rooted V35 from China. A few weeks later, they updated me on their progress -- said the rooted phone they received from China not nearly great condition like the one they sold me.

Some low level bypass or something where you mess with the circuitry. It would negate the IP68 rating, taking it apart like that.
