Supported devices list makes false claim
Antechinus

● SDK Type: Dual Screen SDK

I just purchased a G5 model H850 because it was listed on the Supported Devices for boot loader unlock. Followed the unlock procedure with the result "Unfortunately your device (IOT_H850_Marketing.EUA) does not support unlocking..." Packaging does NOT show this marking so it was not possible to know that the device is not supported.

LG has cheated me. Mobile phone not suitable for purpose advertised by OEM.

Please show cause why this case should not be reported on XDA Developers Forum and LineageOS.

In reply to my original post. The H850 "marketing" version can be unlocked by following the advice at xda-developers.

Thanks LG for assistance.
