Hi guys

Bootloader unlockers/lockers from recovery are here.


Easy method to unlock & relock Optimus G bootloader.

Good things about these zips:
1. No running OS is needed.
2. You don't have to be on lg stock roms.
3. Work much faster & easier. Less than a minute.
4. You will still have custom recovery after locking your bl.

How to use?
Using bumped recovery, flash them like other zips in recovery.

Don't have recovery?
Flash a bumped recovery img (inside of the attached zips) with an app like Flashify or Kernel Adiutor or etc.

Note: BL unlockers flash unlocked bootloader + Philz/CWM recovery. Booting up on unlocked BL needs unlocked kernel.
So in stock roms, don't forget to flash an unlocked kernel, like unlocked stock kernel or solid kernel or etc...

Anyway in case of any problem, there is no worry because you can always access to Philz touch(for E975) or CWM(for other variants) recovery.

I could only test E975 ones. Other variants unlockers must also work. But you are the testers...

Please Note:
1. I'm waiting for your feedbacks. Please give feedback with name of your variants.
2. I didn't have stock bootloader files for other variants, so I could make bootloader locker for E975 only.

Some guides:
1. How to flash boot/recovery .img in Kernel Auditor?
In the Backup section of the app, use Flash IMG button, then select your .img file (extract them from zips), then select the partition to flash (boot/recovery).
2. You can use your own bumped recovery img, using the bump tool
3. On locked bootloader you can enter to recovery with hardreset method.
4. After flashing Makoz30f Flasher (not after unlocking, unlocking is ok), it will also flash bootloader tz.img & rpm.img.
Flashing Mako rpm.img will cause false heat issue on LG roms so your screen brightness will not go further than 63%(& cpu clock speed further than 1188000). E975 unlocker & relocker zips will replace tz & rpm partitions with stock ones. So you can use them to fix this problem.

for other variants of og, after unlocking, you need to flash an unlocked kernel, but for E975, if you use the zip that has stockboot, you dont need to do anything & it flashes the kernel for you.

Thank you guys.
Since Gee3 rom has better speed & LTE support in our stock roms, I'm making Gee3 v1.3 & I'm testing it, but with this kind of statistics , it seems there's no motivation no replays about its working on other variants...

MMK instruction
Hi MMK,

I'm a total newbie and it's the first time i've ever flashed a device, my E975 is completely stock (but i've root privilege and su is installed). I've installed flashify and downloaded a zip (i don't have a special kernel at the moment do you suggest stockboot). Now i've unzipped the folder on the phone but i'm uncertain about what to do now, there are a lot of images and i really don't know where to flash what. Can you suggest a more detailed procedure?

Thank you for the effort and thanks in advance.

Hi, If your bootloader isn't already unlocked:
In flashify you must choose recovery image from flash section, then choose the Philz.recovery.img you've extracted.
Then press reboot to recovery from options & simply flash the zips in recovery mode to lock or unlock your bootloader.
Make sure to use your own variant zip.
