LG Optimus G gets its bootloader unlocked
posted by Ray S. / Nov 21, 2012, 5:43 AM
Project FreeGee can currently unlock the bootloaders of the AT&T and Sprint Optimus G. thecubed promises to continue adding other variations of the powerful smartphone to the list, with the Canadian and Korean ones being next.
We'd like to note that unlocking device bootloaders is for advanced users only, who - as they say - know what they are doing. If you know nothing about the pros and cons of unlocking a bootloader, then you most probably don't need to mess with this stuff.
Those who understand the risks can find the tool by visiting the source link. How many of you guys actually have an Optimus G?
- Display 4.7" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh

Don't have one yet. Hoping to get one sometime soon. But I have to buy it used, I gave my wife my upgrade so she could get a Note 2. If it wasn't for my Sprint line being my second cellphone I wouldn't even consider the Optimus G. Fixed batteries are a deal breaker for me normally. Because I kill my work GS3 batteries so fast during my work days that I always need to swap out my battery halfway through the day. So luckily the Optimus G would be a backup play toy. I can't wait to get my hands on it again...so sexy.

sounds like they are still having issues with LG and the security lock down, so be aware of the risk and always make a backup first
