    Phones from AT&T and Sprint Because AT&T and Sprint provided Software Update via FOTA only, We can not get kdz firmware through IMEI for those LG devices on AT& T or Sprint Network.

    Not entirely accurate.
    .KDZ has been out on alot of LG devices for years.
    The budget friendly LG Stylo series has .kdz files for public download. Visit LG for a list of devices that have .kdz files.

    I wiped the laf partition yesterday. Now when I got to download mode I get this:

    fastboot_init()
    USB init ept @0x08f221000
    udc_start()
    -- reset --
    -- portchange --

    I couldn't get my windows PC at home to recognize the driver, but my ubuntu machine does. Ran fastboot oem unlock and phone currently says fastboot: processing commands. Terminal still says waiting for device.

    If I wasn't a complete newb, I would know if this was good or not. Image is attached.

    Edit: I ran sudo fastboot devices and it sees the device. Ran sudo fastboot oem unlock and it says FAILED (remote: unknown command.) Tried sudo fastboot flashing unlock and I Terminal says < waiting for device > but phone shows fastboot: oem unlock. Seems to stall there.

    Re-Edit: I reset terminal and tried sudo fastboot flashing unlock and it seems that is not an actual command as it is unrecognized. Not sure why it would return unknown command for oem unlock. o_O

    Figure out anything, Roadkill? :) I ended up getting a Google Pixel 2 after many frustrating problems with the Stylo 2. But, I kept the phone and factory reset it and thought I would check back in. If I wasn't a total newb about Android development, I could be of more help.
