Does this works with a G3 Stylus model D693 ?

Just to answer my own question, I flashed the ROM and is working perfect.

There are many variants of D693... which are you using?

---------- Post added at 10:28 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:17 AM ----------

Hey. I'm trying to contact LG and talk about the bootloader of the G3 Stylus. By now, they just tried to call me and told me they don't recommend to do root. In case of any other answer, I'll post here.

No way they unlock. Ever. In fact the locked bootloader has everything to do with the carrier, and not with Lg. If you contact Huawei for unlocking codes for certain devices (I have a G730-U251 which is a lot like G3 Stylus, though I think its even better) they will tell you that. I didn't even bother to contact LG...

---------- Post added at 10:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:28 AM ----------

Yeah, that's it, I'm going back to 4.4: LG did a pretty **** job with this port of lolipop, and this phone basically hasn't devs, so I can't stand without xposed. I think the worst thing I did in this year was to buy this phone, should have bought the Moto G, it cost less and offers much more :/

Oh yes, for sure. I got both (plus a Huawei G730-U251) and either is way better than the D693n. In fact, I can tell this is the most fragile device I ever had. It is the only one ever, that failed to withstand the beautiness of rooting. That's why I'm searching for a ROM with no carrier and bring it back to full life. And root again...

---------- Post added at 10:49 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:45 AM ----------

My GPS works Great after update to Lollipop, and i have root in my device. Greetings from México.

De pura casualidad... ¿el tuyo es de Telcel?

---------- Post added at 10:54 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:49 AM ----------

Hi, i have the Mexican version of this model and i installed this update, from the malasyan version, it works very smooth, but i want to get back to my stock rom KK, but i cant, i have try many diferent methods, but none has worked, can you help me please?

Methods i used and didnt work
LG flash tool 2014 : error please unplug the phone and the battery and try again

LG pc suite: unkwon error!! couldnt communicate with the phone

KDZ firmware update: decompression error

Entonces sí tienes (o tuviste) un problema con esa ROM de Malasia, ¿no?

Ok. Esa es la información importante!... Es que los participantes tienen la fea tendencia a decir "si funcionó!" o "no funciona" y nada más. Si nos tomamos el tiempo para ser un poco más explícitos con los problemas o soluciones que encontramos, entonces somos útiles para otros y otros pueden ayudarnos con más facilidad. Ese es el punto de éste foro. De otro modo, solo nos enteramos de la felicidad o la desgracia de otros y eso pues... no ayuda gran cosa. Gracias por tu respuesta!

Did anyone found out how to use SuperSU in lollipop yet?
I was thinking in modifying the original Kingroot app and make it install SuperSU binaries and the app instead of it's own, but I just don't know how to make this work :crying:

I know this page is in english, lo estas conectando en modo download? Sino es asi, oprimiendo el boton de volumen arriba y le conectas el cable usb, sin soltar el boton de volumen hasta que salga un logo como de dos flechas girando en su propio eje.

    Finally we have Lollipop! I've did this 2 days ago and the phone works perfect although i'm from Chile and the indonesian firmware runs correctly so :D:D:D:D
    I only hope that some developer can find the way to enable recovery :(
    Is not possible to root the phone yet?

    I've try many way to root it, but always fail. :crying: I hope some developer can find how to root it and to enable a custom recovery. :rolleyes: :confused:

    Your thumb please... :cowboy:

    thanks ;) worked on my g3 stylus (d690n) gives the same error above and my gps works.
    anyone sucessfully rooted it?
    lg one click root failed for me :'(

    I was with the Kingroot (the link is on the own post), then I flashed the rom again and it's not working anymore. Funny.
    I got root with iRoot too, but even the own iRoot apps couldn't got root permissions, which means it couldn't gave permissions to any other app too.
    I guess that even if you get, you won't be able to update the su binaries easily, so you will have to get used with the Chinese apps.

    Gps is working fine to me either, seems even faster than before.
