One of Android’s biggest selling points is the ability to customize your device as you see fit, but sadly several wireless carriers engage in the practice of shipping handsets with locked bootloaders. For example, the LG G3 is a fine device out of the box, but one of its disadvantages is that most carriers sell it locked down. Aware of this and the device’s popularity, the folks at Team Codefire have created “Bump!,” an easy to use software tool that lets you boot into a custom recovery setup.

This gives G3 owners the ability to easily flash ROMs, as long as they’re “Bump’d” and compatible with your device’s specific carrier. For a complete walkthrough of how to use Bump!, swing by the source link below and for you visual learners, here’s video of the app in action.
