How to enter flash mode

  • Recovery mode: Power on the device by holding Volume Down and Power, once the screen turns on release the buttons and hold them again shortly after. Select "Yes" at the factory reset screen. If you have TWRP installed it won't actually wipe your phone.
  • Download/Bootloader mode: Hold down Volume Up and connect the device to a computer with a USB cable while it is in a powered off state. If you erased the laf partition the phone will boot into fastboot mode.

Unlocking the bootloader

Icon WARNING: Be prepared to disassemble the phone to force booting into EDL in case of failure!

    $ git reset --hard d5ff2d474a185a0c0df09c74dfa24eb7cfe6e9e5
    
  3. Download necessary files for unlocking the bootloader from here
  4. Reboot to EDL from Android
    $ adb reboot edl
    
  5. Dump all partitions from the phone and back it up. You can delete userdata.bin to save space on your computer
    $ edl rl dump_lg-g2m --genxml
    
  6. Write the patched aboot to the phone with files from the GitHub repo
    $ edl w aboot aboot_d620r_patched.bin --memory emmc --loader 008050e100000000_cc3153a80293939b_fhprg.bin
    
  7. (Optionally) Flash TWRP
