If you love to root and mod your device then you know just how important an unlockable bootloader is. Some rom users have opted to use devices that aren't carrier branded just to avoid their devices bootloader being locked up. Others have turned to the Oasis which is the Nexus lineup. T-Mobile seems to be the go to carrier when it comes to hackable devices, but even some of their phones ship with a locked bootloader. Most of their devices can atleast be bootloader unlocked.
The LG G4 appears to be one such device. A photo shows the developer options of the LG G4, and inside the menu is the option to allow OEM unlock! If this bootloader is unlockable it will make rooting and installing roms super easy! I wouldn't count on the AT&T or Verizon versions including an unlockable bootloader, however developers made quick work of circumventing the bootloader and essentially unlocking it on the Verizon LG G3 last year!
