- VoLTE doesn't work. LG uses a proprietary implementation of VoLTE that is not compliant with AOSP. Fixable? Probably not.

If you want to report bugs, please always indicate device variant, Gapps package, Magisk version and Magisk modules installed.
Your device must be unlocked and running a custom recovery. Click here if your variant is H870 or US997 and here for H872.
Oreo or Pie bootloader required
H870: if you are running the latest Stock Pie, there's no need to update your bootloader.

In case you aren't running those stock versions, you'll need to update your bootloader by flashing the right one for your variant.
