  1. Congrats, on being one of the first articles out concerning the rooting of the LG G6. (I’ve been searching daily). It was a pretty basic article regarding the general rooting procedures of most androids. Many factors still have to come out regarding the G6, before it can be rooted. The MAIN issue is if it’s boot loader can be unlocked. With-out tha,t custom recovery is a no go. As soon as I hear and see that the boot loader on a G6 can be unlocked by my carrier here in the states, then I’ll pick one up that very night. Thanks for your article, best wishes.

  2. Dude, you forget to explain how to open command window on the folder, its make readers can’t follow this tutorial.
