Thanks to the Codefire Team and thanks to LG we have from some minutes ago the official steps to unlock LG G4's Bootloader:

Here


VERY IMPORTANT

1) For now this procedure is only available for H815 International variant (but LG page it says: "We will add more devices with unlockable bootloaders unlocking permission progressively")

2) doing this will void your warranty


My advice is : we have to support codefire Team ( @autoprime @thecubed @jcase @IllegalArgument ) much stronger to have a bootloader solution that will not void warranty and give us always root availability.
Codefire Team is our real hope to be always masters of our devices

This is embarrassing to ask. Does having a locked bootloader mean you cannot flash RomManager or TWRP? or something else?

If I only wanted to root and keep OEM rom do I still need to unlock the bootloader. Im in the T-mobile G4 LG-H811

Correct, locked bootloader means no TWRP or custom recoveries.

Root is possible with a lock bootloader after finding an exploit.
