Step 3: Booting the Phone into Fastboot Mode & Installing Fastboot Driver
To boot the phone in fastboot mode, type adb reboot bootloader and hit Enter
Check your phone screen, it must be in Fasboot Mode as shown above.
Now, wait for the ADB driver to install.
You can see the “LGE Mobile Sonner Single ADB Interface” driver is installed successfully. In the next step, we can write the command to unlock Stylo 3 bootloader.
Step 4: Unlocking the bootloader and verifying its lock status
In the command prompt window type, fastboot oem unlock and click Enter
The bootloader unlocking was done in 0.854 seconds!
To check the unlock status, type fastboot getvar unlocked and press Enter
The status is “unlocked: yes”, which confirms that the bootloader is now unlocked.
To exit fastboot mode, type fastboot reboot and hit Enter.
Now that we’ve unlocked the Stylo 3 Plus bootloader we’re ready to install TWRP custom recovery which would let us root our LG Stylo 3 Plus.
