I just got it back, opened it up and as I expected there is absolutely no signs of any corrosion anywhere (I fully removed the mainboard.
Don't know what options I have after finding this.......

OK, so Monday afternoon Purolator delivers it to me, one hour inside of it being out of my hands for exactly one week. Not too shabby.

I/we were happy too until the phone started to bootloop again.NotMoneyGuy wrote: ↑Nov 14th, 2017 10:05 amIf I had not read all the horror reviews, I would be absolutely clueless about FutureTel's bad reputation. Seemed like a first-class experience to me. Hope the repair or new mainboard holds up as I look forward to entering my third year and beyond of it with Virgin under their BYOD plans and discounts come late December when my 2-yr Gold term ends.
Happy customer here.

Ouch and thank you.

You'd assume they were using new / revised parts for the repairs ..NotMoneyGuy wrote: ↑Nov 14th, 2017 12:09 pmOuch and thank you.
Maybe it is wishful thinking on my part, but did LG figure out the root of the problem and remedy them with new sound mainboards or whatever after a certain date?
If so, could one check the new IMEI or SN to see if one is getting the new revised parts? Or just newly installed old but fresh soon-to-be-lemon parts.
Obviously a repair/replacement with fresh versions of the old inherently faulty parts is just a problem waiting to re-appear.

Hmm...my failed one's S/N starts with 512K and the replacement with 709K. I wonder if this is part of the "flaw-fixed" generation.ssy080 wrote: ↑Nov 15th, 2017 12:00 amWow... Mt dad's just bootlooped and has s/n starting with 507. Called LG and they say that they only cover s/n between 511 and 600 something. Will try chatting them tomorrow...
And i thought he was lucky to not have a bootlooping g4.... No more LG phones for my family.

From what i've read, replacing mainboard is temporary solution at best. G4's root problem is due to its non soldering process aka using adhesive for its main chips. Therefore, they will become undone when the device gets hot and melt said adhesive overtime.
