LG plans to unlock the bootloader on future phones

LG plans to unlock the bootloader on future phones
LG has sent an email to XDA, alerting the group of modders to its future plans regarding unlocking the bootloader on future phones. The message was in response to a missive sent by XDA member Wolfgart, inquiring about an official solution from LG. The manufacturer replied that it is prepping a server to be used for a safer bootloader unlocking process.

According to the email from LG, they are trying to come up with a target time and device, to implement its bootloader unlocking strategy. While it might be a full flagship generation or two ahead of us, a current model like the LG G3 could be covered by whatever process LG decides on.

Unlocking the bootloader on your phone will allow you to install custom ROMs. And that is great for those who know what they are doing. The casual phone owner doesn't really need to concern himself with this. If you do unlock the bootloader on your phone, you will void the warranty on the handset. For those who know what they are doing, it is positive news that LG has apparently decided to move forward on this matter.
