The v40 is fully bootloader unlockable with root if you are using an ocotoplus box. There are a few folks on telegram that will do it remotely. This requires that they typically connect to their own private network via vpn and remapping their usb devices to make them accessible on your computer.

A version of the v60 just had their bootloader unlock made available:

Still trying to track down the supported frequencies for LMV600EA though. And so far it doesn't look like there is an unlocked rom version that can flashed to enable the bands that i would need for at&t.

I would love to know if this phone would work with T-Mobile.

Guys, you'll never get root for at least a year other than the European model, which is practically non existent on eBay and such sites. The octopus box needs the firehose, and that will take over a year to leak most likely. It hasn't even been leaked for the v50 or g8. The t mobile version also won't be root able ever with the firehose due to hardware differences. If you want root, the best choice is to go with a g8 or v50

Does really LG made their device so locked?
Was thinking about the Velvet, but there are few apps which needs root and MAGISK modules I use, one or two of the apps I even HAVE to use coz of work
No root means that I'll need 2nd device, so why bother?

Ohh, Lg! Why You become so shi**y?
And they probably still doesn't get why they devices sell so bad even if they are no worse than what others have...

So was the T-Mobile bro rootable? And if it was it took a year for to become readable so basically if somebody wants to root the V60 to tie two people a year before that would be able to happen? Thanks In advance for your time.

Since february no need anymore for someone to remote with an octoplus box... we got the firehose, you can do everything yourself with qfil, the guide is on xda too

Yeah, i was reading through those. May need to look into that to get cTsProfile working for use with Google Play. I had both of my LG v40's done through telegram and they won't pass SafetyNet.

Also, being locked out of certain parts of a pocket computer "for my own good/safety/security" just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm completely with you (as are most on this forum). Who would buy a car that has a lock on the engine hood? Or a house where you aren't allowed to replace the lamps? So, why would I buy a phone that prohibits me from rooting?

This type talk reminds me of reminds me of guys who think driving stick is something that is so impressive. Root access is like getting free medicare to some lol. Gaining root access just sounds cool and some of the features are so overrated. You pay a grand for a phone but it's not like you would go to the moon with root access.

I did my fair share of rooting since early 2010. Not much changes day to day with my rooted phone or my non rooted phone.

I'm not a guy, and I don't drive manual transmission ;). But I like the right to modify what is mine.

There are many reasons to root – performance, features, privacy, or just interest. Of course, not everyone will root (just like most people won't modify their cars).

But I should have to right to do so, if I want. :cool:

Hear hear so true! it ain't yours if you feel in any way negative about taking it apart or modifying it.... its ok if people are not interested in risking damaging their own phones but a real shame that some people are so scared they want to deter others as well.

Is it possible to ask kindly LG to provide us a way to unlock the bootloader of the phone ?? Samsung has it by design. I remember in the LG G4 era, LG was providing bootloader unlock service to all the variants if I am not mistaken

    Is root even a thing now?

    Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk

    It is for me. I use a few apps that need root permissions. Also, being locked out of certain parts of a pocket computer "for my own good/safety/security" just doesn't sit well with me. If I decide to go into the file system and start hacking and slashing files until it's a brick, that's on me.

    I can easily see how that could seem silly to some but at the end of the day if I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars or more on a device that I carry with me everywhere and use every day for the foreseeable future, it's damn sure going to have the features that I want. For me that's a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD slot, and root access. Of course, I have a bad habit of making my own life more difficult based on principle alone. I wouldn't recommend it. However we all have to pick and choose our own hills to die on. Don't even get me started on dongles...

    Anyway, I'm very sleep deprived and rambling on about nonsense. Apologies.

    don't get me wrong I love this phone but I kind of regret trading my pixel 4 xl... LG blocked users access to the bootloader... you can access fastbootd and download mode and recovery and that's it. all commands are blocked in fastboot mode as well. although the OEM unlock switch can be toggled out of the box I think they allowed this because they know that you will not gain access. I may get the S20 Plus next week, at least it has root...

    Thanks I really appreciate the info. Looks like I'll be holding off for a bit to see how things progress. I really like the look of this phone but root access is one thing I won't bend on. Thanks again.

    Thinking about picking up the V60 ThinQ. I don't have any experience with LG so I'm not sure how user friendly they are when it comes to root and unlocking bootloaders. I'm stubborn and refuse to buy a phone that doesn't have:

    1) A headphone jack
    2) A microSD card slot
    3) Root access

    Yes I realize that is just making life harder for myself but I have my principles.

    I know this phone is fairly new and I seem to be having trouble finding much information about root. Does anyone know if there has been any progress with it?

    I'm really not trying to be "that guy" I just haven't had much luck finding reliable info. I suppose that is probably a good indicator that the info just doesn't exist but I figured I'd take a shot at asking the pros.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    what life without root? never had and never will. automatic or stick shift both see all the annoying ads on the big city freeaways, my phone is going off road, bit bumpy from time to time but feels soooo good to be FREE! 👍
