Bounty Details:

This is the official thread for the LG G4 bounty for root/unlocked bootloader. I will be ONLY doing the bootloader bounty for the Verizon/AT&T models as these are usually the harder variants to achieve. I can have two separate bounties; one for root in general and the other for the unlock bootloader. XDA has not broken this up into sub-forums, so until then I will post this in the 'General' section.

Root and Recovery Bounty:

Requirements:

1. Be the first person to create or find a method to achieve the following:

  • Exploiting a fully stock LMY47D build to get root and custom recoveries.

2. Make a post in this thread with the following:
  • Proving it works with appropriate photos and/or screenshots
  • Providing full step-by-step instructions for which anyone else can follow

3. Wait for at least one member to follow the same method and confirm it works the same on their fully stock device with LMY47D build

4. Claim your bounty via PM from donator(s)


Payment will be processed between each member and the bounty collector via PM on an individual basis.

DISCLAIMER;

  • PLEASE STAY ON TOPIC. OFF TOPIC, SIDETRACKED POSTS WILL GET DELETED AND WILL HELP CLOSE THIS THREAD.
  • Please note if you do not explicitly state separate prices for root/recovery and full bootloader unlock bounties, your contribution of the same price will be add to both lists.
  • Please note you may not submit a contribution for only ONE bounty. If you post a contribution, one price will be applied to both bounties unless separate prices are explicitly stated.
  • Please note you do NOT have to pay for both bounties separately. Whichever bounty gets fulfilled first is the one that you pay for upon collection. This is why your contribution is added to both lists automatically.
  • Please note you may NOT make any specific restrictions or requirements that aren't listed in the OP. By making a post with your contribution price you are agreeing to paying out based on all terms listed in OP only and nowhere else.
  • Please note once you make a post with your contribution you may not withdraw it at any time and are responsible for paying out once the bounty is claimed. The only changes that can be made are another post raising the prices if you choose so. Please make sure you read everything carefully. No exceptions!
  • Please be advised that if Verizon/AT&T or LG is to release an official method of unlocking the bootloader (extremely unlikely but must be accounted for) prior to any member of XDA's submission, this bounty automatically becomes invalidated.

Idk if its smart creating a bounty ..whoever comes out with a root method is obviously going to wait till a bunch of people donate so there's more money to be earned for them...so the root method will take a long time to be released...idk that's what I see lol

From knowing the reputations of some of the developers working on this, that won't happen.

    unfortunately the people that gain and benefit and profit off root the most are not a part of this community.I think the main reason the thought of trying to license an exploit is to stop businesses and such from running wild with free work.

    I think many users here assume most rooters and unlockers are just people that want to open up their own personal phone a bit more. but many forget all the 3rd party phone resellers that resell our roots and unlocks. lots of smaller phone carriers use our roots to they can customize their phones theyve bought from larger carriers to rebrand. And thats just 2 cases of MANY.

    a specific example... my samsung gs4 sim unlock method from a few years back is still being used in 3rd-party phone shops around the world and I know of at least 37 shops making $1000+ a month of it. meanwhile I never got more than 25% of the bounty. the bounty not being paid was no surprise.. I think everyones aware that only about 20-30% of a bounty is paid out on average... that's not my issue. my issue is my free work is now creating a living for others.

    so we have xda users.. which I'd generally love to help... then we have companies making bank off of us... it's a hard line to deal with. This is my thought anyway. I cant speak for others.

    I will add... Codefire has no plans to charge for a root or unlock for the G4. Just wanted others to be aware there's more going on than "evil devs wanting to take all of XDA users $$". ;)
