Unlocked LG G5 RS988 (US) gets official bootloader unlock support

The unlocked US version of the LG G5 is now supported for bootloader unlock. LG has added the LG G5 RS988 variant to the list of devices that support unlocking the bootloader officially.

So if you’ve been wanting to unlock the bootloader on your LG G5 RS988 variant, you can now do it with ease. Of course, you can always re-lock the bootloader on your device. And it is good to know that the manufacturer supports this process, as not all are okay with it.

Unfortunately, unlocking the bootloader, even through official means, will void the device warranty. If your device is still under warranty, it is better to wait till it’s out of warranty. You can follow the steps provided by LG in the source link to unlock the bootloader of your device.

Once you unlock the bootloader on your device, you will gain complete access to its ‘root’. This means that you customize your LG G5 with new custom ROMs, add-ons, and mods. Make sure you know what you’re doing before starting the unlock process.
