  • Issue #1) “Before Jumping to the first method make sure you have unlocked the bootloader.”
    The bootloader is NOT UNLOCKABLE. You CANNOT unlock the bootloader

    Issue #2) “And for the first method make sure to install custom recoveries like TWRP or CWM.”
    Neither TWRP nor CWM make a custom recovery for the LG Stylo 5 phone.
