    Hey all, just got the Lg Aristo from metro pcs/tmobile. Sports android 7.0 and a snapdragon 425 chipset, not a bad device at all. Anyways putting this here in case there is interest, iv tried non pc rooting methods to no avail. I have knowledge of adb and fastboot, Loki'd images with LGs, just came out on the 23rd hoping it becomes popular :) (battery life on nouget rocks) also its the only phone that sports N of any of the no contract carriers. Oh forgot to mention its free with a port in!!

    Hey bro...I just picked up an Aristo as well, to replace my G4 I'm sending off to have the motherboard repaired. So far, I'm really liking the Aristo. Only complaint is that it has no fingerprint sensor like all the tech sites indicated it had. I hope root and TWRP come to our device.

    True, the haptic power button in the back looks like a fingerprint scanner, it is not. But its a cool refreshing look at lg, volume rockers on the side and pwr button in the back! I hope to god we get root and twrp! The device scores a 34193 in antutu! Beats the galaxy s4 and is on par with the s5's at my store (I work for cricket) ;) loving this device, still havent charged the battery lol

    Sorry about that drizzy79, got held up in a couple of events :) So for those who are looking to unlock the bootloader for this device.

    Enable oem unlocking and usb debugging in Developer options (after tapping android build in about phone settings)
    Turn off phone
    Hold volume - while plugging micro usb to computer
    Type in cmd- fastboot oem unlock
    Then- fastboot reboot or do a battery pull

    Just a friendly reminder unlocking a bootloader factory resets a device so remember to LG Backup beforehand.
    Also everyone be searching for the firmware/ stock rom/kdz and be checking for the update, as soon as we can get it to Messi we WILL have a working recovery. On Nouget theres an option under developer options to download and install the ota updates automatically, turn that sucker off if you want to stay manual.

    Rooting methods tried
    Apk:
    Towel root
    Poot
    Kingroot
    Kingoroot
    One Click Root
    Pc:
    Kingroot
    Kingoroot
    Wondersharego

    No root yet. Steady awaiting the update or stock firmware. Thankyou Messi for working on our device !

    What's the model # of this device? If somebody can find a kdz on the web or perhaps try the old IMEI trick to get the kdz (not sure if that still works or not), then the stock recovery/boot images can be extracted and used to build twrp.
