    Yes, you will be able to go live, as with most other phones.

    Masterchief87,
    I think this one won't allow the same script to install supersu.zip since the special LG serial port mode seems to be missing.
    It does go to fastboot directly, and unlocking bootloader doesn't need any per-device code.
    But even after "fastboot oem unlock" you cannot boot directly from a downloaded image, like some other fastboot's allow. We may need to commit to overwriting stock recovery with TWRP before we can flash an unsigned update.zip

    OTOH maybe the process for flashing an update.zip stops requiring a signature, after OEM unlock?

    No the stock recovery still won't flash zips that aren't signed with lg's key. You need to find the firmware kdz file for your phone. Once you do that you might be able to get someone to build twrp.

    The kdz for the Stylo 2 plus metroPCS variant was released today, it can be found at http://www.needrom.com/download/lg-stylo-2-plus-metropcs-stock-firmware/

    If there is anyone that wants to take a shot at porting twrp with me let me know as my knowledge is very limited and I could use some help. Or maybe someone who is more knowledgeable than me could give it a shot. The Redmi 3s has the same specs as the Stylo 2 plus if I'm not mistaken and they have a twrp already built. Maybe we could use it as a base to port twrp over to the Stylo 2 plus.

    Just got this notification. Anybody install it and is it Nougat? Trying to avoid it in case root requires the factory firmware version.

    You got that on Stylo 2 plus? I haven't gotten any prompt for an update yet.

    Not sure have been busy with work have not had a chance to download it. Will tonight and report back.
     
  10. I'm curious too. 360MB is a bit big for a patch.

    Well I'm pretty sure it's not gonna be N, if it was N it would almost certainly be a much bigger file. Probably bug fixes as well as a patch.

    The firmware version is 10i

    I have 10b on my device right now.
     
  14. Perhaps.... The Lollipop -> MM update for my Nexus was around the same size, but pure. Stylo I can envision updating its bloatware too

    Wifes Stylo 2 came with 10b and upgraded to 10i by ota. That is still a large patch . mm 6.0.1

    Will surely come to the metroPCS MS550. If not I'll just flash the kdz.

    Hahaha looks like I messed up lol. I got the ZMAX pro because it has some better specs and because of that I'm still waiting for root.

    Wow..
    Just a lg experience.
    I'm on MPCS and I flashed the T-Mobile.kdz because I reflashed stock with lg up and couldn't get root back.
    Then I flashed the .dz tmobile and I was able to root it again. Twrp would not let me enter via adb commands.
    I like the tmobile bloat,wallpapers better than mpcs..shhh don't tell anyone.lol.
    So in a nut shell my lg g stylo plus 2 rooted with xposed is running better than my un rootable zmax pro.
    I'm about 70% into building this kernel.
    Please a link/video to a good kernel build guide.
    Thanks guys and gals.
    LG life's good.
