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

    Someone has stated they had some success on that type of phone. Just please backup anything you flash before flashing it so you can start over and restore your phone at anytime. I do not have a G8X so I can't tell you anything in particulars but I can help with programming phone.

I don't understand its like my phone is blocking everything I try on it. Ahh, I see. That is...

    I can get into EDL mode very easy. I just have no idea what I'm really doing when I use the qfil. It works great with no problems.

    you need to type the full path to the files. it might work without the full path if they are in the same folder as lgup but I don't use flasher. null means it can't find the file, you should move all the files to a folder on your c: drive and name it something simple like - new - so you can...

    That is correct. The correct driver is installed for download mode then. Although Download mode will be more picky as to requiring the exact firmware KDZ for your phone. You should be able to use LGUP, and if you use the command line tool you put COM4. I put LGUP_CMD in my c:\ folder because...

    You need to let us know what type of phone you have first, including the Carrier it came from. If it's LG G8 Thinq Sprint you can just use EDL to flash android 9, you will have to download 7GB If it's another carrier you can enter Emergeny mode and hope for a flashable KDZ to be online.

    Oh, I see, well earlier I got out of it by going back to EDL mode and using qfil to put the engineering abl_a on slot a and b.
