AT&T LG Optimus G Pro Bootloader Hacked


What I hate most is when carriers (yes AT&T and Verizon am pointing at you) lock down bootloaders, but what I love most is when developers say “Up Yours” by hacking into them. AT&T LG Optimus G Pro is another example, the bootloader was locked by AT&T but enter djrbliss aka Dan and the bootloader on the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro has been hacked aka lokified.


Please note this is for AT&T LG Optimus G Pro, build E98010g only. Please do not try to flash any custom roms, kernels or anything from the recovery. This is just proof that the bootloader on the AT&T LG Optimus G pro has been hacked.

Here are the steps if you want to do them, please proceed at your own risk.

  1. Download lokified cwm from here
  2. untar the file and put it in internal memory of device
  3. open adb session and check if your device is being detected by doing adb devices
  4. get super user access by typing in su in the adb session
  5. do a dd if=/sdcard/cwm-recovery.lok of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p28 to push lokified cwm to  your device
  6. Do not do a reboot into recovery, instead turn off your device
  7. Once device is turned off volume UP + home + power until you get into recovery

Please and I repeat please do not flash anything from this recovery, this is just a test recovery.
