Any success with rooting

6 posts in this topic

Those root methods on androidinfotech and droidviews won't work. They require the bootloader to be unlocked and they point you to the official LG bootloader unlock page. Problem is LG won't unlock our bootloaders, our us996 aren't the same as the us996 listed on their site. I didn't realize this before I bought my us996 through uscellular. Very annoyed they used the same model number for 2 different phones.

 

However this guy on xda said he rooted his uscellular us996 using the dirty santa method. https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=70142770&postcount=63 Not sure I'm ready to risk trying on mine just yet though.

Yeah, I made a huge mistake. Should have stuck with Sammy and an S7, which I'll likely return this for. I've been on the Pixel XL waiting list so long, I just got tired of waiting.
