The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display.

Asus Unlocks TF300T Bootloaders, All Rejoice
A few weeks ago, a petition was started by XDA Senior Member wideopn11 to get the bootloader of the Asus Transformer TF300T unlocked. The demands were simple—to provide the same type of utility tool that unlocked the Asus Transformer Prime. It’s only fair, right?
Well, Asus responded. Unlike Motorola, who seems to enjoy infuriating their rooted users, they said okay. XDA Forum Member maspro has posted a new thread after finding out that Asus has released version 7 of their unlocker utility. The big update? It’s now compatible with the Transformer TF300T!
For those who don’t remember how it’s done. The unlocker tool is a simple apk file that users install and run. The app then connects to Asus servers, logs the user’s device ID and then unlocks that bootloader. It’s a very simple process, but users must remember that Asus will remember that you’ve done it and thus it’ll void your warranty. This is nothing that HTCDev users haven’t been dealing with for ages, and if you’re looking to unlock your bootloader, it is something that you should be expecting anyway. In any case, the device is now officially unlocked and everyone is pretty happy about it.
For the link to the Asus page and more information, hit up the original thread and get your bootloader unlocked once and for all.
