I have an LG V30 Model VS996 (US model) that I obtained from a Verizon store. Has anyone figured out how to unlock the bootloader and/or obtain root?

And I guess I don't care as much about unlocking the boot loader as much as just gaining root access.

Change you title then. Plenty of LG V30 are rooted. I have one.

There's TWRP, ROMs available down in development section. You KNOW there's root available.

Yet, in the post, THEN you mention Verizon... So, you're looking to root a U.S. CARRIER LG V30.

You should put that in your topic title, because the answer to your topic title is YES, there's root available.

You can't. My point was originally your topic as I replied to it didn't say Verizon in the topic title. Originally it just said can you root LG V30, and the answer to that is YES -- if you have the right LG V30 (North America open market LG US998, European H930, European H930G).

Now your edited topic title does mention VS996.

Since someone just above dug up a OLD THREAD from 13 months ago (April 2018?) for no reason, now we must say it's simply an outdated year-old thread and no one should pay any attention to it. I only quoted the op in this post to re-frame the discussion from the name-calling and insults which seem very strange. EDIT: the offending post has been deleted by mods.

Here's the current situation:

ROOT Your V30!

Right now, ANY V30 variant in the world can be rooted. All the answers given before this post right now in this thread is obsolete.

And person just above has been reported to mods. EDIT: the post has been deleted by mods.
