Unlock LG G-Slate Bootloader On Honeycomb 3.1 [How To]

Advertisement

Lg G-Slate BlackWe have confirmation that the LG G-Slate bootloader has been unlocked! Finally, owners of the G-Slate have something to be excited about after what has been a very slow and boring time when it comes to mods. Things seem to be falling perfectly into place now, with the device being rooted on Honecyomb 3.1, ClockworkMod recovery being made available, though not fully, and now the bootloader has been unlocked. This means custom ROM’s, themes and more could follow in anytime. Unlike the very first rooting procedure that we once covered – tedious method – unlocking the bootloader has been made quite easy. Credit goes to ChiefzReloaded, Dasunsrule32 and Deez1234 for coming up with this.

    I have tried and tried and I cannot get my computer or adb to see my G Slate in fastboot mode. I know I can add a specific driver, but I am not sure which one works. I am lost, please help.

      Not sure if you are still looking for this but I installed PDanet, when installing make sure you select LG drivers.. that worked for me. Good luck
