charging, fingerprint, cameras, google, desktop mode, wireless charging, NFC, Bluetooth, wifi, etc...

the things not working in the
system update
network sitting
no 5g only 4g and no volte

I tried flashing different region ROMs but it dint work
no idea if LG can later block the phone

next week I'm receiving v60 and I will try the same method
Could you give us more details about the proccess please?
And is it unlocked for all carriers?

Im waiting for the result of your method with the LG V60.

Hi all,
I have bought a retail demo unit from ebay and it worked fine. I was succesfull in removing the "Retail Mode" app, but then stupid me wanted to experiment more.
I have experience flashing V50 so I have tried LGUP with retail stock firmwares for US TMO and Verizon. It did not work. Then I tried lgup_cmd and it started cross-flashing the TMO firmware.
At around 80% the screen went completely black but the firmware flash ended successfully according to the tool.
Now the phone does not switch on at all and does not react to USB charger.

Is there any chance to unbrick?
did you manage to unbrick mine brick att 98%

I figured out to remove the retail mode app on the Wing, and have included it in my guide here. The V60 should be very similar. Follow the first section (removing demo mode) to remove the app. Do NOT attempt to try the second part- it will not work on the V60 and you will probably brick your device.

I'm thinking about buying an LG V60 Demo Unit to use as an MP3 player and audio device only. I am looking to play YouTube as well. Can anyone tell me what the actual storage capacity is on the V60 demo unit? It says 128gb but I doubt it has that much. I need minimum 32GB of actual storage for my MP3 collection. I bought a G8 demo unit that was suppose to have 64gb but actually only has 7gb!

Whats the actual storage capacity?
Does the wifi work for youtube without flashing the rom?
Is the sound just as good as the retail V60 and does it have the Quad DAC?

Thanks!!

    Hi, bro. Could you please tell me what it is different from a normal V60? Is it only no signal and battery limit? I'm planning on buying one but I'd like to be sure. Thanks in advance.

    I've never found a way to get around the 50% charging capacity though that would make everything far better. I have found a way to rid retail mode and get into security settings, but charging block still remains. No fingerprint sensor, haven't gotten stylus support to work, dual screen DOES work though. Also haven't gotten a software update since March 1, though most carrier devices have.

    I use mine as a WiFi device and enjoy it minus the 50% battery.

    As far as I know only that. 50% charging can be worked around by charging switched off.

    If you have a guide to get me around the 50% charging, you are god lol I've searched all over and haven't found anything except flashing a different firmware and most experiences I've come across turn out real bad
