First, you need to install ADB on your PC. You will find the latest version (1.4.2) here: Download ADB 1.4.2. If this version is not working on your PC try ADB v.1.3.
Unzip the program, open it, and it should ask you these following 3 questions: “Do you want to install ADB and Fastboot?”, “Install ADB system-wide?” and “Do you want to install device drivers?”. Answer yes to all the questions.

2- Enable USB Debugging and connect your phone

You then need to enabling USB debugging on your device. Once this is done, you can connect your phone on your PC with a USB cable.

Get Pokemon GO in Canada before everybody else

/ by / Tags: , ,

Pokemon GO is a new game in which you can catch Pokemon with your smart phone, walking in your own city. You take a walk, watch through the camera of your phone, see Pokemon and catch them! The best of all is that the game is free to download. You can make in-app purchase if you want to.

The game has been released a few days ago across in a couple a countries like United-States, but the release date has not been announced yet for Canada. How unfortunate for Canadian people… or not. There is still ways to download the app even if you are in Canada, or in another “not yet released” country.

 

How to download the game anyway?

I will show you here two ways of downloading the app, depending if you are on Android or iPhone.

How to download Pokemon GO on Android

That’s it! Pokemon GO will now be installed on your Android!

How to download Pokemon GO on iPhone

The method on iPhone is quite different. Since you cannot install external applications, you need to bypass the iPhone store. To do so, you simply need to create another account on the iStore located in the US. Simply go in your Settings > Languages and then Regions. From there, you will be able to create another account located in the United-States. You will be able to create your account without entering any bank account information since the game is free.

There you go! I hope you liked this little trick and now, go catch some wild Pokemon!

1- Unlock bootloader on LG V10

The first step to root your LG V10 device is to unlock the bootloader. It will allow us to install a custom recovery like TWRP. You may want to backup your device before proceeding, just in case.

  1. In your phone, enable the USB debugging option located in the Developer options settings.
  2. Still in the Developer options, enable Allow oem unlock.
  3. Install ADB and fastboot on your computer. If you are on Windows, download link is here. If you are on Linux or Mac, download link is here.
  4. Boot your device into bootloader mode. To do so, hold the volume down button in addition to the power button for a couple of seconds. Once the bootloader screen appears, plug your device into your computer.
  5. Open command prompt if you are on Windows or a terminal window if you are on other OS and type:
    fastboot oem unlock
    fastboot getvar unlocked
  6. That’s it, the bootloader of your device is now unlocked! You can now reboot your phone and unplug it from your PC.

2- Install TWRP recovery on LG V10

The second step is to install the TWRP recovery on your phone. It will allow you to install custom packages into the device.

  1. Download the TWRP recovery file here. Extract the file and place it in a folder in your computer.
  2. Now boot your phone into bootloader mode again (explanations on how to do this in step 1.4). Once the bootloader screen appears, plug your phone into your computer.
  3. Now go in the location where you placed the TWRP recovery file and open a command window in that folder. To do so, hold shift, right click and select Open command window here.
  4. It is now the time to flash the recovery. To do so, type the following into the command window (let say that file_name.img is the name of the image file):
    fastboot flash recovery file_name.img
  5. That’s it, the TWRP recovery is now installed on your phone! You can now reboot your phone and unplug it from your computer.

3- Root LG V10 with SuperSU

Last step, but not least! With the two preceding steps correctly done, we are now able to root our LG V10 device. Before proceeding with this, you will want your device to be at least 60% charged.

  1. Download the SuperSU package here and transfer zip files into your device’s internal storage, in any folder.
  2. Now boot your phone into custom recovery. To do so, simply follow the same directions as in step 1.4 (that is, hold volume down and power key for a couple of seconds).
  3. Open the TWRP main menu and select the install option.
  4. Select the SuperSU file you’ve transferred earlier in your device.
  5. Once installed, simply reboot your device and it will now be rooted!
