I have a G4 H815 locked with serial number starting with 505 and stock MM with software version V20c-EUR-xx. I have backed up all my important data and I am ready for it to die lol, I hope it doesn't die though xD but it is very likely after reading all the posts here that it will die.
I can't do anything other than lol cause if it dies I am f***ed and I will need to purchase a new phone. I can't send it for warranties as there are no official LG center in my country and I think this was imported from Europe.it's not LOL at all....
but i don't know if it's a full general problem (it's sure that the must phone die ! ) or if it's some small % of phones (like some Samsung known for this umpredictable "sudden death")
==> because on the internet we generaly only see peoples with problems who express....but we don't know at all how many lg g4 h815 (505... and more) is used on the world and how many work correctly ...
we don't know the importance of this bootloop problem....
For example :
i have a car ! on forum and others thetre are feedbacks about problems....but i own this car and never have had all that i can found about these problems...
I went to the shop I bought it in and asked the vendor to send it in, since I bought it there 7 month ago.
#Edit I bought it at Saturn, you might know that Company in germany. Sorry I couldn't help
My phone is 505, v1.1 and sadly May edition? Model is H815t Hong kong? is my phone in line to die? should i sale it as its working now? or i can keep it hoping it may keep on working?
Has anyone reached out to LG Hong Kong regarding their phone? I emailed them twice...The first time they closed my ticket with no notes.
The second email to them has been unresponded to since 12/31.
Think I'm just going to offload my dead G4 on eBay and that'll be that.
But maybe was your phone not booting at all? And so it have hidden the "bootloader unlocked" text? Just to know.
Anyway in Europe unlocked phone should still get warranty services.
Seriously??? What are you still doing here? Go sell it quickly before it turns into a paperweight. And buy a later version from someone else
Unless you live in Hong Kong and have access to warranty support, you should get rid of it as fast as possible.

Same thing with me. LG Hong Kong didn't even respond to my ticket from two weeks ago.
Well, turns out after having my phone for a month that LGUK have decided that they aren't going to fix it and don't care that there hardware was shot. Updating post #14
Bowing out, better luck to anyone else.
Moral of the story - don't buy LG hardware as there quality control is ****e
is there any chance? i never rooted my device and intend not to root, then i can survive? i can sale it, but it will be some loss, loss i lesser than loss of whole phone?
Said that they tested for water damaged, found out it was rooted and refused to do anything else.
Thing is, it wasn't rooted, only bootloader unlocked (when it was sent in after attempted fixes). I assume they don't know the difference.
For everyone having the bootloop issue, I saw this in another thread:
Using DL mode (device off -> press and hold volume up while(!) connecting to PC) and LGUP you should be able to push any KDZ on your device and get out of the boot loop.
I don't have the bootloop problem so I can't test it but it might help someone.
Most of us cannot use this trick: flashing fails at 9%
Some of us made it work, though...
