Here plz tell me is lg v40 409n korean version unlock bootloader via edl mode in Android 10? reply plz

Ahhh sorry may have misunderstood your wording. You don't use 'edl mode' to unlock the boot loader. You DO use edl to flash the engineering abl to then use FASTBOOT to unlock the boot loader.

But that may have been what u meant. So yes, use edl to flash the eng abl, then use it (fastboot) to unlock the boot loader. Yes, it will work with 409n, but any time u unlock the boot loader, user data gets wiped. Nothing you can do about that.

cheers

As far as I know u can, I've had both 409n 30e and an older version of ebw on my device - think it was 30b UK. Although there is some talk recently on tele group indicating LG has done some things with newer roms to stop crossflashing. I'd check there first.

I'd suggest you find threads about crossflashing and reading the posts about problems people have come across when doing so (you can even search within the threads for specific things like imei).

Your approach seems to be 'ask for help how to do it, then cry when it doesn't work exactly as you want'.

Many people have posted in threads here about losing imei, and what they've done to fix it. Read them. It's not anyone elses job to do it for you.

    hmmmm, no, I don't think so. But why would you want to even try? When we have the engineering abl, which has fastboot, which can easily unlock the bootloader?
