    Desperate times call for desperate measures.
    Therefore, I have decided to start a bounty thread to entice a developer to unlock the bootloader and achieve root for the dual sim LG G6 aka H870DS.

    I contacted LG requesting official bootloader unlock for the H870DS.
    LG replied with “Currently, you can only unlock the bootloader for the models below.
    - LG G6: US997.USA for the U.S. open market
    - LG G6: H870 for the European market”.
    The above was of no benefit as its the same as list on [url]https://developer.lge.com/resource/mobile/RetrieveBootloader.dev[/URL]
    I think it will be ironic if bootloader unlock and root is achieved unofficially for the H870DS as it will mean our devices are still under warranty...that is, if a stock rom can be re-flashed.

    I have contacted emdroidle, the developer who achieved bootloader unlock for the LG V20 (H990DS) aka Dirt Santa [url]https://forum.xda-developers.com/v20/development/dirtysanta-h990-t3624296[/URL].
    Unfortunately emdroidle stated the Dirty Santa method is strictly for the Qualcomm 820 and won't work for the G6.:crying:

    I'm going to use this bounty thread [url]https://forum.xda-developers.com/v20/how-to/bounty-thread-lg-v20-root-h990ds-t3493062[/URL] as a reference and list all the offered donations.
    There will be an expectation for you to pay up if an unlocked bootloader and root is achieved.
    With that in mind please don’t state you’ll donate $50 US if this is a lot of money for you, just state what you are comfortable in paying.
    Please state your model, donation amount and currency to make it easier for me to create and maintain the donators/tally list.
    Fingers crossed

    A person named Raghu has setup a petition for unlocking h870ds and other LG g6 models on Change.org http://chn.ge/2m8AnPy

    I'll open the bounty

    I have been in communication with J0sh1X and I am going to start working through bluebourne and a few other vulnerabilities to achieve root and to unlock the bootloader. Give me time and I will have something crafted up sooner, than later. :)

    Don't loose hope.
    Will be receiving this device in mail in the next few days, will try & see what I can do to help workaround this whole thing. Have hope guys, we can still do this.

    I haven't been having good luck on this so far. I will keep trying, are there any other developers willing to collaborate with me to crack this down?
