Gone are the days when rooting was done in one click using the Kingroot app even without unlocking the bootloader. That exploit worked until Android Lollipop 5. Since the marshmallow, the common root procedure is unlocking the bootloader, flashing a custom recovery (TWRP) & installing SuperSu or Magisk root via TWRP.
In this method, the first step is the most crucial step. If we fail to unlock the bootloader then we cannot proceed further. A TWRP cannot be flashed when the bootloader is locked.
Now let’s talk about LG K30. The predecessor to K30 was K20. It was a rootable device. Even a few Custom ROMs such as Lineage OS, AICP, AOSP, etc. are available for LG K20 Plus.
We are going to use the same rooting procedure which is applicable for LG K20 Plus. So Let’s do the first step i.e. unlocking the bootloader.
LG K30 Bootloader Unlock – LM-X410(FG).
To unlock the LG K30 bootloader, we need to turn on USB Debugging. This option can be found in the Developer Options.
The next step is to install the LG K30 USB Driver.
I’ve enabled USB Debugging and installed the LG Mobile Driver on my PC. Let’s proceed further –
At this point, I’m ready to connect my K30 to the computer via the USB data cable.
