LG’s bootloader unlock tool now works on some international G7 and V30 models

Monday, June 18th, 2018

Some smartphone manufacturers have their own bootloader unlock tools, and LG is one of them. It made its debut back in 2015 with the H815 G4, but it's since added plenty more phones to the roster. Two of the latest phones to join are the G7 and V30, though only the European models are currently supported.

Here are the models and the markets they're sold in:

  • G7 (G710EM): Europe, Israel, Latin America, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, United Arab Emirates
  • V30 (H930): Europe
  • V30 (H930G): Europe, Africa

So if you live in the US, you're unfortunately out of luck as of right now (unless you've imported one from another country).

LG adds V30 models for Europe (H930) and Italy (H930G) to bootloader unlock program

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

LG phones generally have good hardware, but not-so-good software. It's not terrible, but it's still inferior to stock Android and TouchWiz Samsung Experience both functionally and aesthetically. But if you have the H930 or H930G variants of the V30, we have good news for you: your bootloader can now be unlocked, opening up a new world for you.

The H930 is sold in some European countries, including the UK, while the H930G is listed as an Italy-only device.

Netflix is suddenly reappearing on the Play Store for some previously banished modified devices

Friday, October 13th, 2017

This May, Netflix started blocking rooted and unlocked devices from downloading the company's app on Google Play. It was an unfortunate restriction that locked out many people and stirred up a lot of anger. Over the last week, some of us at AP have started noticing the app reappearing, even though our devices still don't pass SafetyNet/Google Play device certification.

Not all of us are seeing the Netflix app return. My own bootloader-unlocked Pixel XL still adamantly refuses to show the app listing, but Artem's is more than happy to oblige.

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017
