    Hey guys ,
    i want to know how to unlock the bootloader of the lg g stylo. I am on lollipop 5.0.2 but the bootloader is locked. Please help me because i really want to root it, but it doesn't worked till yet. I tried Kingroot , the LG One Click Root tool which is in this forum. The LG One Click Root tool didn't work because it doesn't run the Super Su Script. Please help me. I really want to get my phone rooted

    We would love to know how to unlock the bootloader too lol.

    First things first though, provide us details on which carrier your on, so we can form a better game plan for getting you to 5.1.1 with root.

    Thank u for your answer. I have the lg g4 stylus h635 version , its free for all cariers. Its the european version of the lg g stylo: V10b-EUR-XX. I am on android 5.0.2. Do you need the build number too ?

    nope, but we do need to know whether you have 2gb ram or 1gb. its a gsm device right? not cdma?

    if its a 2gb ram device, then i think you may be able to follow the h631/ms631 instructions for installing twrp and updating that way, but im not sure since i have the ls770 (boost mobile) variant and things are different for it.

    Well that throws a wrench in things then lol. I didn't know there was a gsm version with one gb ram. I don't want you to end up flashing the wrong thing.

    Private message 6th_hokage and see if he can help, he's done quite a bit to help support the boost variant with the same configuration except it's CDMA instead of gsm.

    edit: also you may want to try redownloading the LG one click root zip on another windows pc and re running it. you may have gotten a bad download.

    5.1.1 will be easier to root with my manual method or the newer one click method by draken. But before you try to root if 5.1.1 goes through you should pull the unedited system.img cause then you be able to reflash it if things go bad and others with your carrier can too

    Guys if you do not have to "Enable OEM unlock" in "Developer options" then you can try booting to fastboot mode by using the "adb reboot bootloader" command and then use the "fastboot oem u lock" command. But this will factory reset your device ao be prepared to lose all your data and apps. You can also use "fastboot flash name_of_recovery.img" or "fastboot boot name_of_recovery.img" to get a custom recovery without root and then flash the SuperSU.zip by Chainfire to root. More details here in my guide.

  12. Bro i have 3 answer:
    What "enable OEM unlock" do?
    Why this option appear only in the mm 6.0 version (not in 5.0.2)
    Why if i use "adb reboot bootloader" my phone reboot only
    P.s. i have an lg g4 stylus (h635) european version of lg g stylo (1g ram g storage LTE)
    Thanks for help

    The "enable OEM unlock" is also in the 5.1.1 Official ROM for T-Mobile US and Metro PCS US variants of the LG G Stylo. I am not sure if it is in the Boost Mobile and sprint varints of the LG G Stylo as I have not read up omn them and do not have one. But if this option is not in developer options of your device and adb reboot bootloader just reboots the device then it sounds like the bootloader of your device is locked and is not ment to be unlocked by the OEM. It was probably requested by the Carrier but I thought european variants were not carrier locked so this is kinda baffling to me. Try adb reboot fastboot and see if you get to fastboot mode that way.

    I have a LG Stylo LG-H634 with Cricket as the carrier. I DO have "enable OEM unlock" switch. What do I do now?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Nothing, you can't unlock the bootloader that switch is superficial on the CDMA variants

    CDMA variant?? Specs show I have both CDMA and GSM

    But you're on a CDMA network that's what I meant. Only Metro and TMobile have unlockable bootloaders. Are you on 5.1? I think you can safely root the cricket variant on 5.1 but no bootloader unlock

    That looks extremely fake to me, especially because of what's right under the bootloader unlock bit
