    Post Guide LG G8/G8x/v50 Bootloader Unlock and Magisk Root using Firehose

    I'm debating if I wanna try this, what's the advantage to having root these days? I've rooted a bunch of phones years ago but seems like there is no good custom roms available and the stock firmware is way better than it used to be so I don't even know what the point of risking a brick would be.

    I highly doubt you can upgrade and keep root, best way might be to flash back to stock, upgrade and then re-root but I doubt it's worth it what's even in the update?

    Post Bluetooth Dual Audio?

    I'm actually looking into this right now and ran into it in a video about bluetooth 5.0. It's actually a bluetooth 5.0 feature. The G8 has bluetooth 5.0 so it should be possibly but it's probably limited by the software. I'm not sure if it would be possible to enable though (by a 3rd party app)...

    Thread Popular modable phones/tablets? Been away for a while.

    I've been using an LG G8 for almost 2 years and I miss twrp, custom roms and having full control. I'm thinking about buying a 200ish dollar device or maybe a little more that's got a reliable root and twrp install so I can install custom roms and do w/e I want on it. I've been away from the...

    And they also make you agree to all kinds of nonsense if you try downloading a free theme on LG smart world... it's nuts. On the bright side the built in dark theme is alot better. ---------- Post added at 05:44 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:41 AM ---------- Can we get verification...

    Post Tutorial to update an LG G8 AT&T

    I think I misunderstood the OP. I think they are getting the update on a phone that has no current service. It didn't make sense to me either.

    Post Tutorial to update an LG G8 AT&T

    the phone is the same model, that's the concept of the OP. to install update on same model with diff provider... I think it's clear at this point you are answering questions to which you don't know the answer.

    Post Can you make the google assistant button do other things?

    The problem is it calls a specific app, I found an app on xda for remapping the assistant button but what it does is change itself to the default assistant, then automatically does whatever you set it to do instead of launching itself when you call the default assistant. However Samsung and LG...
