honestly this phone by itself with root is still an amazing phone...all a ROM is going to do is make it slightly better...

JB will be nice to get...but i'm not in a hurry to ROM this phone like i was with my OM and Indulge...this phone is perfectly suited to my needs as it is right now...

that being said, i still would like to ROM it anyways....see how high we could overclock it and whatnot :P

You need to speak with a level 1-2-3 technician(lvl 3 being the most knowledgeable) at metropcs, so I suggest you ask the Customer service rep to transfer you to a supervisor and have the supervisor transfer you to the l3 tech, good luck.

Metro has nothing to do with the boot loader. That's all LG

so in response to the source being released i sent them this
"Hello,

Awesome thank you for the source, now I also asked about a bootloader unlock tool. Is there anyone who I could talk to about that, that is really hindering us from being able to do custom development on our device."

and they replied with

"We already delivered your request to relevant department and we are still waiting for response from the department.
They are looking for a more efficient and safe method to unlock bootloader
We regret to inform you that It’ll take more time.

We hope this information will help you.

Thank you.
Sincerely yours,

LGE MC Company Open Source Code Distribution Center
Email : opensource-mc@lge.com"


so there is hope...it looks to be far far away...but it's some little semblance of hope

This is a copy of an email I sent to Lg this morning acquiring knowledge and answers about the issue of a boot loader unlock tool.

Greetings,

I have purchased your LG motion 4g android powered smartphone. I was curious to the availability of a boot loader unlock tool. I wish to root and put a ROM on my phone. I understand that LG shares a position into which it would like to place a secure operating system with it's end user. A boot loader seems like a great idea in order to prevent the end user, from harming themselves by causing software and/or hardware malfunctions, however what a boot loader that can not be unlocked does is simply limit innovation from a software and hardware prospective. LG is worldwide company known for great innovation and an industry leader among many consumer electronic products. As a LG customer of over 10+ years in the cellular phone marketplace, I would like to do my part in order to progress LG's innovation and help bring new ideas and concepts to it's cell phone division. In order to do that I can not simply stand by and accept what LG pushes to it's cellular communications consumers as great ideas, or concepts. LG will always need consumer tested ideas and concepts to further innovate and make successful cellular communication devices. LG will need a fresh sets of eyes to let them know what is a great idea or concept what makes it great and why LG should consider using it on their next upcoming Cellular Device. I thank you for your time and I would appreciate a response about the matter of using a boot loader unlocking solution.


James

I already built the kernel, it has nothing to do with bootloader, bootloaders loads kernel.

Gus was an idiot as are most ppl who work help desk type jobs.. they read from a script and if its not on the screen they dont know jack.

Now, far as ROMming the Motion, that can still be done via a batch or shell script via adb on a rooted device. Its not as clean as flashing a ROM but very doable. Basically have the script rm unwanted files, n push files n overwrite others.

I used this method for a client and even push deodexed files n removed all the .odex's.

And again, this isnt the preferred or recommended way to do things, but it works.

So...more developments on the frontlines...

this is the most recent reply i have received...it may also be a canned reply but it doesn't seem like it

"Dear Rory

We are still waiting for the response from our security team.
They said that they worried about DRM contents when the phone has unlocked.

We will inform you that when it is available.

Thank you.
BR."

to which i replied

"Hello,

Thank you for the reply, unlocking the bootloader won't affect the DRM it will just make the developer community be able to flash a custom recovery onto the phone so we can ROM and Theme the phone, and make it more customizable for the end user...which is one of the selling points for Android phones, being able to customize them however you want.

Thank you for your time.

Rory"


i could be wrong about it affecting the DRM, but that is not our intention for unlocking the bootloader

i just went and did that precise thing :P

so, i personally think that us bombarding them with polite requests into the progress of the bootloader unlocker is going to get something done...

it will still take some time, but they will get tired of the e-mails and finally give in eventually.



basically i want CM9 or AOKP on this phone :P and i will keep sending e-mails until that is possible

so, i personally think that us bombarding them with polite requests into the progress of the bootloader unlocker is going to get something done...

it will still take some time, but they will get tired of the e-mails and finally give in eventually.



basically i want CM9 or AOKP on this phone :P and i will keep sending e-mails until that is possible
Lol cm9.... I want cm10... give me some jelly love

LG's terrible with waiting... had to wait month's for the OM 2.2.2 Source.

I hope they release the unlock bootloader soon..
I want to try CM(any) again.

I did a live chat with lg and they said that they did not make the software they just made the phone and that metropcs sends them everything that they want onto the phone etc... But then I live chatted metropcs and they say that lg does everything. Just give us the freakin boot loader!!!!!

I just reactivated my Esteem untill a recovery comes out for the Motion. It is automatedly done through dialing #228 from Esteem while the Motion is off.
