LG Aristo USB Debugging & OEM Unlock – How to Enable

USB debugging facilitates the connection between your LG Aristo Android phone and the computer. If you wish to unlock the bootloader of LG Aristo the first step would be turning ON USB Debugging.

However, if you’ll look for USB debugging in Settings you won’t find it there as it’s hidden inside the “Developer Options”. So first we’ve to unhide “Developer Options” and then we’ll turn on USB Debugging.
