    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.

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

    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)...

    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...

    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.

    I thought of this use case, use the HDMI to send to a monitor, and 2 of the usb slots for keyboard and mouse.... turn the G8 into a little laptop. I might order one to try it, in theory it could work but I have my doubts.

    Post Canada unlocked LG G8 ThinQ Stock kdz firmware

    All signs point to BS as far as I can tell but the op title had my hopes up lol. I think LG is under a contract agreement not to release such firmware, it'll only happen if it's an internal leak.

    Post I'm sure this letter has been sent before to LG . Well it was just sent again .

    Isn't it the carriers that request this? Also they gave up the user replaceable battery for water resistance. The G8 has a feature to reduce charge current to make the battery last longer to try to help with lifespan. They aren't shunning you they stuck with the user-replaceable battery longer...

    To unlock your sim you will usually have to pay depending on country. Changing ROMs and editing build prop won't do anything. The carrier holds the password usually because your phone is on contract if you buy one off contract you should check that it's factory unlocked
