For those of you out there who happen to own the flagship LG G3 smartphone, you might have been chewing at your fingernails to have its bootloader unlocked so that you can start to look into its untapped potential. Well, while the LG G3 bootloader remains locked as at press time, it does look as though this will not be the situation for long as an enterprising user has actually asked LG concerning the matter, only to have LG respond that the company has been “preparing a server to provide safer bootloader unlock”.
That sounds like good news, but like everything else in life, there are two sides to a coin, and it does look as though those who have been waiting all this while will have to wait even further, since the process will, in LG’s own words, “take some more time due to the technical restrictions, security issues, and the policy of mobile carriers.”
As for LG’s full response, it reads as follows.
Thank you for your feedback regarding bootloader unlock and
we are sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment that have been caused by lack of support for bootloader unlock on the latest LG smartphones.
We are already aware of many developers’ requests and opinions on bootloader unlock.
So we have been preparing a server to provide safer bootloader unlock.
Also, we are internally discussing the target model and the time of providing bootloader unlock.
However, it will take some more time due to the technical restrictions, security issues, and the policy of mobile carriers.
We deeply apologize that we are unable to support bootloader unlock right now and would like to ask for your kind understanding.
We will let you know more specific information when the support policy for bootloader unlock is decided.
